I stayed 6 nights at this hostel (or possibly one of it's associated hostels because it seems there are two or three that are managed by the same people along the street) and it is an awesome location just near the Dragon Bridge in Ljubljana. Easy 5 minutes to the markets, less than 10 to the city centre and the... More

Two of us stayed in a large room which can accomodate up to 6 people. It had a huge bathroom with shower and a really good sized kitchenette and kitchen table. No towels or soaps - remember this is a hostel, not a hotel. At 28Euro per person it is a fantastic deal for this very expensive city. Location is... More

Stayed for two nights and the staff were extremely helpful. Our double room with shared bathroom was ok but a big drawback was the fact that the window could not be locked. Whilst it was on the first floor anyone could have accessed our room and stolen our stuff so we had to take everything of any value with us... More

The accommodation was fine, an average hostel. We stayed in the dorms which were clean enough. No wifi from the dorms. Common room is very small and no one really hangs out there. Location is excellent. The staff is hit or miss, some were very nice, some were someone rude/incompetent. We did laundry and two of our shirts disappeared. We... More

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!

The room looks new but again all the previous comments about exposing wires and unfinished works still exist. 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.

We arrived around 7pm and were received very nicely. The girls at the reception were really helpful with any questions we had and with finding a parking spot for our car. If you travel by car, make sure to book a parking spot with the hostel. We then we were guided to our room in the other building, which were... More

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
