I found Celica Hostel a very inspiring and unique place. The room was definitely not like any standard hostel room, this in a positive sense. The restaurant was great, especially at lunch time (All vegetarians, please note, there is a vegetarian choice on the menu every day. cheap and tasty). The staff were friendly and helpful.

Celica is a great hostel. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the facilities were very nice and clean! Metelkova is a unique location in Ljubljana with a great music, arts, and activism scene. From the contemporary art museum next door (one of the finest contemporary art museums I've ever been to) to the art studios to the student radio... More

Helpfull and very friendly stuff, the Place and surrounding made me, Age 56, feel a Student again. Lovely "monk"cell!!! with a sort of indirect lighted "Tabernakel " , I only missed the reading light near my bed. Perfect Service: for example the Transfer to the airport . I definitly will come again, maybe next Time to show my kids......

Only negatives are that the hostel is a bit empty in late February (more to do with Ljubljana only having so much tourism at this time of year) and the kitchen is not very well equipped. BUT, I had a great time - the staff (all Slovenian, all very nice) took me out for beers, the breakfast is very good... More

I loved staying at this hostel, it is so unique - an old jail turned into a hostel. The jail bars were still there at the time, and the interior of the rooms were so uniquely designed. The room I was in had two single beds. I don't recall if there were family type rooms, with double beds, etc. But... More

Realy interesting rooms, if you want to see something different, this is the place to go. Everything was clean, the service pleasant, we had a parking wich most of hostels don't have. On the down size, poor (or none) wi-fi signal in rooms, and the staff was noisy in the coridor at 8am! Building is such that in the coridores... More

The hostel is great, really clean and it has everything you want from it. Rooms are comfortable, the position is really close to the station and 10 minutes walking from the city center. It also have a really good breakfast in the morning for just 3 euro.

It is not first time we are staying in this hostel as the location is exactly where it should be for our needs :) The stuff was very friendly there and we had possibility to change the booked 4 bed dorm to a biger one, because the room was too small in our opinion. 7 bed dorm was far away... More

Nice experience, even though I'm too old to stay in a hostel! :) Good common space, excellent chicken wings at the bar, and a comfortable atmosphere. The staff was helpful and the rooms were clean. The area is in Metalkova, a wonderful area of bars, galleries, and clubs all with a counterculture theme in historic military buildings. Perfect distance from... More
