Really enjoyed our stay - we were in a two bed cell which was great fun (and slept well despite heat!). Breakfast was fine, we didn't need anything else and the granola was really tasty! The bar was cheap, the people we met were really nice (refreshing after the flood of 'gap yah' students in other hostels..), and the staff... More

Interesting hostel with unusual design. I enjoyed staying here for the experience but I did think it was a bit overpriced for what it was. The rooms and bathroom were clean. It was a 15-20 minute walk into central Ljubljana. I didn't feel overly safe in the area at night.

The noisiest place I've ever stayed at. No one expects a budget hostel to be a realm of tranquility, but the acoustics of this place are outrageous. The tiled corridors of the former barrack/prison make every sound ring in your ears, even with ear plugs. Constant door banging, exacerbated by the scarce supply of bathroom facilities, makes you feel like... More

Go here for their great value lunchtime set menu, you can self serve the salad and choose your portion size, they have around three different dishes on the set daily menu to also choose from, you can have a two or three course lunch. The food was excellent each time I ate here while on a business trip, my colleagues... More

Not worth the money the ask for an empty room with just bars, nice idea but nothing special. Plus you do not get to see the other cells. Not too clean either. Staff is ok. We were expecting so much more from this place, but seriously something you can live without.

A quite little bit crazy hotel, crazy and unusual. Sleeping rooms and breakfast is good, but unfortunately is the hotel very noisy in the night, so sleeping is not really possible. In summary the location is very central, the hotel is crazy and it is really an experience!

Celica was reccommended is many travel documents, when we arrived we were let down. I would not reccomend this place to my friends to sleep at, but location is great, in a very cool area. Great area to party in.6

We have been really desappointed by the accommodation. Particularly on the property. The area wasn't so nice at all, the breakfast wasn't good. The good point was the ambiance. We won't recommend this place...

The hostel was great and clean. Nice rooms, which are decorated by different artists. Which I think is great! Also the way the hostel kept some prison items is great. Nice personal and close to the center!

A good location with easy to follow directions. We stayed 2 nights here with a trip to Lake Bled in the middle. The hostel staff were very accommodating by allowing us to leave our bags overnight free of charge when we went to Bled. The bedrooms were OK but perhaps a bit small for the number of beds in them...
