To put it bluntly, hated this place. The rooms were tiny, no room for anything so we couldn't even unpack. No air conditioning, and only a small little fan in the room which done nothing. The bathrooms were even worse. Disgusting!!! I've seen cleaner public toilets. Shower was just unbearably small and dirty. The breakfast was disgusting. Not one positive... More

A very special place. Big hospitality, with a feeling of being home. Good food, nice, clean and very cosy room. Hostel placed in a area that just has to be experienced. A short walk, and you are in the center of the lovely city.

Celica art hostel is a apparently a converted jail/interrogation building. it is renovated fully and is bright, cheerful, clean, colorful with interior and exterior seating and common areas. It is located near the Metelkova art area with its bold graffiti and sculptures. but the real stars are the staff that made this solo last minute late arrival feel so welcome.... More

It was perfect apparent from the fact there was no air con in the room which meant unbearable sleeping conditions! Service was great and very secure. They serviced food at the bar and was reasonably priced

Worst hostel experience we've had. No air conditioning in a very small enclosed room. Never got a good nights sleep because of the heat and humidity of the room. Showers and toilets were very dirty and breakfast wasn't great either. The surroundings of the hostel were terrible also, making it uncomfortable to step outside the hostel. Would not recommend this... More

Such a cool concept--this hostel is a former prison and is surrounded by artsy graffiti. The rooms used to be cells, therefore they still have the prison doors and bars on the windows. Staff is very friendly, and the hostel is very close to the train station, and short walk to the center of town. Lots of young people hang... More

Awesome place next to Metalkova which is an artistic and urban cultural spot in Ljubljana. With no doubt, a good place where to start for enjoying the capital of Slovenia. 5-10 min away from center town and located in an old prison. Sleeping in a cell was a memorable experience and good fun! All the staff I've met was really... More

Had to make own beds, which were up high... from bunk bed rung steps up. Too warm in room due to being up high. No AC, no curtains on windows. Offered drugs- lots of people around outside (heard all night). Mold on shower walls and curtain. Damp, highly used bathroom.
