Hostel rooms are nice, clean, comfortable and quiet. You can also use very clean and modern shared kitchen. it is a little bit far away from the center of the city, but a owner is very nice guy, and he drove us to the center by his car.

Simbol Hostel was great budget accommodation within walking distance of central Ljubljana. The guy running it Martin is very great and helpful. We had a great stay! The room we were staying in was a good price and there was wifi that worked well. Met lots of nice people. I loved visiting Ljubljana very much and I think the stay... More

I liked this place. My private room shared a bathroom and kitchen with one other room and was clean, quiet and secure. But it's a 30 minute walk to the center of the old city and there are no good transport options.(You can rent a bike for 4 Euro/day) Taxi to the train station is about 5 Euros.

Stayed in 5-bed dorm, bathroom and kitchen were shared with one other room. Supermarket right accross the street. Only minor problem was that the receptionist was almost never around and some girls actually had to call... More

We were in a double room on the ground floor. Kitchen next door to us and the small common bathroom. Clean quiet place. There is air conditioning! 20 - 25 minutes walk to the city center. Bus stop (1) at the hostel one minute away and with just a few minutes from the city center! Shops and supermarkets in the... More

We were in a double room, which, unlike most places we've visited in Europe actually had a double bed rather than 2 singles. We had a bathroom shared with one other room (shower was hot but a push button that needed pushing in a little too often!) and a kitchen also shared with the other room. Stove, fridge, microwave and... More
