Cheap and a nice location are the first thoughts that come to mind of Hostel DIC. Rooms were clean and we felt like we had the entire place to ourselves! The rooms are in the attic of a school basically, and while the lack of other guests and having the place to ourselves was nice things got a little weird... More

Dear Mike, we are really glad you enjoyed your stay at our hostel! You did come just when we were about to close the hostel at the end of the season, so it was pretty empty. The atmosphere is much more pleasent and ghost-free when we are officially open and you are kindly invitated to experience this in the future.... More

The hostel is ten minute walk from the city center, so the position is great. It is situated in an old Eastern Europe bloc in a quiet area. The structure is huge with many different kind of room and accommodation. My dorm was clean, and clean we're the toilets. All the facilities worked properly. The breakfst( unincluded) was excellent!

It took a long time to find this dorm on the edge of the university campus because Ljubljana's street names change every few blocks and we did not know we were looking for a dorm. Our foursome stayed in the basement apartment for two nights. It's actually quite nice for a student dorm, the apartment was good and clean, and... More

Not easy to locate from the main streets but there a signs that takes you into the university grounds to the building. It is close the city. customer service: very helpful cleanness: place was clean and tidy everyday... More

We are a married couple and stayed at this hostel for 5 nights (on a Monday thru Saturday morning, with reservations). At check-in, we asked for an extra key since we thought we would need separate access to the room since we had different agendas. The clerk went to look for an extra key and came back and said that... More

This hostel is somewhat still "under construction", nevertheless I had a very good experience there. The price is decent and student-friendly and the location is fantastic -- right at the foot of the Ljubljana castle hill. The hostel itself looks like an old high school converted into a hostel, so there's still a lot of things going on there at... More

Booked a single room on 2nd floor which was absolutely massive and had a fantastic view of sports fields / castle. Hostel itself is a kind of college / school dorm which is used as a hostel during summer so be prepared for that "dorm" look. Staff very helpful, accommodation clean. Breakfast good value. Location pretty central and safe looking... More

Located about 15 minutes from the centre of Ljubljana this hostel is in a good location. The staff were very friendly and the room was of a decent size. The buffet breakfast costs 3.3 euros and is good value for money. The room and bathrooms were relatively clean and wi-fi was available throughout the hostel. Would definitely recommend!
