“One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

I came to Ljubljana with no expectations, of the city nor of the hostel. Both turned out to be completely amazing! The hostel is clean and well located in a quiet, stylish area of the city within easy walking distance of the centre. Comfy beds with individual electricity sockets and lights and big secure lockers for your stuff. Free breakfast, which is not spectacular but exactly what you need to start your day (fruit, toast, cereals, tea/coffee/juice).
The best thing about any hostel is of course the people and again full marks for the guys at Vila Veselova. Mateja and Matevž were super friendly and helpful and made me feel really comfortable there.

We stayed here in sept 2012 (but trip adv doesn't go back that far). We booked the private double room.The location was good for sightseeing and the room was a decent size and clean.The bathroom was tiny,you could barely turn around in it.The staff were friendly but the biggest problem is in sat about 6 metres from a major motorway and then a railway track just beside that so the noise is awful.It was never quiet at any time day or night even with ear plugs it was nigh on impossible to sleep for the noise. Also the room is right next to the common room and you can hear everything through the walls. When we stayed there was a group who came in at 4 am screaming and shouting which just really topped off the experience. In the room there were no curtains and the blinds were broken in various places and our room lookout onto the front of the hostel which was really helpful. Also we were charged the deposit for the hostel twice and although various emails were sent about this i never got a solution or my money back. I wouldn't recommend this place at all.

I originally booked three nights at Vila Veselova and added a fourth because I was having such a nice time. The staff are extremely friendly, warm and helpful and the atmosphere was cozy and relaxed. The building was really cool and the rooms were spacious and comfortable. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

If you are visiting Liubliana for a day or two, or even more and you are looking for a cozy place at decent price to stay, Vila Veselova hostel is the perfect accomodation option for you. The dorms and bathrooms are clean and tidy and staff is very kind. Location is ideal for site-seeing and city center walks.

We stayed at Vila Veselova two nights at easter. They were really nice since the day we booked the rooms ( sending information and asking for our needs), they made the same after we left the hostel. It is a very cozy house located 10 minutes from the city center of Ljubljana. There are different rooms, we stayed in the green room; all the beds are quite new and everything is clean. Breakfast is in the common room, you can seat together with the rest of the guests and talk to each other. I really liked all the decoration of the hostel, with posters with positive quotes. There are two kitchens where you can prepare coffee or tea, or even cook your meal. The only thing I wouldn´t rate so good are the bathrooms, they are mix, so for some people this won´t be so comfortable. The receptionists were so nice!!! A very lovely place!

Just stayed 3 nights at this awesome hostel. It's nice and clean and the dorms are very roomy. Location was good, and although it was a bit of a long walk from the bus/ train station it was great for getting to old town and in a very safe area. Free breakfast was great- especially since the staff were more than willing to accommodate early departures. Huge thanks to the girls working here- you made my stay that much better. Would definitely come back!
