The hostel is built out of an old military prison, and they spent a ton of time remodeling it into an awesome and unique hostel. I've been in hundreds of hostels and this one is one of my favorite. The private cells are all completely unique, designed by artists, all with completely different themes. I would recommend this place to... More

The hostel, in middle of the alternative Metelcova area is definetly not a good place for conformists. One should like the experience of living in a cell that does not really give you a warm welcome, but make you feel like you would sleep in a cell. Also the evening program with a concert in the public area felt kind... More

It is located in are area frequented by artists so some very interesting graffiti. A lively area in the evenings and the hostel has lots going on. I loved it here and the staff were friendly... More

We (a group of five girls in our 30s) enjoyed our stay at Hostel Celica very much. The hostel has a good location and a friendly staff. Our room - which fitted all five of us - was quite crammed. If we would come back, we would probably book two smaller rooms. The cells and rooms for 2 or 3... More

First, it seems others had issues with staff being unhelpful. When I was there they were nothing but friendly and accommodating. Second, it's an old prison. It's not meant to be cozy. But the rooms are interesting and my bed was perfectly comfortable. All was very clean.

The place has been designed and refurbished incredibly well. Really peculiar and fresh look. As a hostel it operates with a few maneurisms of a hotel.. which is sometimes good e.g. 24 hour Reception, extra security doors to floors. Free wifi is not available upstairs, for somewhere that seems to be quite business minded surely they know to keep on... More

The hostel was very cool in terms of art work and was probably a great place to meet people if you were travelling by yourself, however the bedroom was APPALLING - worst room I have ever stayed in. There weren't even any curtains/blinds on the windows. Ridiculous ladder to climb up into the beds. Rooms were concrete claustrophobic cells and... More

Funny freakish hostel, a former prison, thus the rooms risult a little asphyxiating although neat. Promiscuity helps you making friends. Staff is helpful. Very crowded. Close to the train station. Average breakfast

When we arrived at Hostel Celica, we found that we were paying more than we had expected for the night and also we had to give a 10euro deposit which we had not been told about. This was highly inconvenient as we had intended to use that cash for food. The woman at the desk was unhelpful and responded with... More

Unfortunately I thought the Celica hostel would be much better but in the end I was dissapointed with how small the room was. I know that it was a former prison but that does not really justify the small and short beds they have and the tiny bathroom :( also I was "upgraded" to a smaller dorm but I ended... More
