H2ostel is more than a hostel. It's private rooms are more like a modern inn, with a view to the river. Room well equiped, fair price, awsome location, nice breakfast nearby. Staff really polite and helpful. Would really like to go back, the town is also amazing!

Our room is on the ground floor with the window facing the street , the noise and sound of people walking pass by... More

Always when I'm in Ljubljana I usually go to this hostel. Great location, just few minutes walk from the city center. Really friendly personel. We were there with a couple of friends and it was always so much fun, met a lot of people there. So if You are going to Ljubljana, don't be worry of sleeping here.

There were 4 of us in one of the apartments. The room was great! Bunk beds, 6 big lockers, kitchenette, a shower room and plenty of room to lounge about in. It's in the heart of Ljubljana on the river front - a perfect location and a good 5 minute walk to the bus and trai stations. Very good value... More

Situated right by the river only a 5 minute stroll from the city centre, this hostel was ideally situated. The room we were given was spacious and bright and most importantly had excellent air conditioning. The bathrooms were both just across the hall and provided everything we needed. The staff were very helpful and even lent my girlfriend a towel... More
