“Spacious and Soulless”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

The buildings are part of student accommodation, so be prepared for a boarding school vibe when you arrive at Hostel Tabor. You can interpret this in either a positive or negative way - the rooms are spacious and the facilities are up to scratch but at the same time the Hostel feels a bit soulless.
The location is possibly its strongest point - Tabor is close to the bus/railway station and the city centre. It's nice to arrive in a new city and find your accommodation within ten minutes. The staff are helpful and will show you how to get to whatever exactly it is that you're looking for.
If there's one negative that I feel must be mentioned, it relates to the keys. Every time you exit the hostel, you have to leave your key into the reception. Now, I understand that this could well come from pressure from the people who run the student accommodation outside of the summer, but it's quite frustrating to have to queue up every time you leave/enter the building. I normally object to deposits on keys but in this instance it seems like a better option than the system they have in place.

Tabor is a super clean hostel with super cool staff in an amazing location. Sleep quality was very good (partially due to the comfort level of the hostel, partially due to a busy ljubljana trip itself).

We were about to leave Ljubljana to go home, but our Eurolines bus never came. At 2pm we were stuck on the street without a place to sleep or leave our luggage. After a lot of looking around, tired and with heavy backpacks, we arrived at a Hostel at the metelkova squat. There was no place so we got directions tot Hostel Tabor. Even at this late hour, the receptionist at Tabor was very helpfull and gave us a place to sleep for all 6 of us. So we managed to get some cheap and comfortable beds in the middle of the night.

The staff was really helpful and friendly, room was spacious, and locations was more than great - close to the bus/train station, and also close to the Ljubljana castle and Dragon bridge. The bathrooms were not so clean, though... But the toilets were, so I might just had a bad timing for bath :)

Great hostel, so close to train station and the city attractions. Everything within walking distance. Was a good price for the large rooms and had very clean bathrooms and showers. Would recommend it to anyone visiting Ljubljana!

As the title says, this is the best hostel I've ever stayed. First of all, the inner parking, very useful. Then, rooms are really big for being a hostel and for this price, really cheap. WC and showers very clean. There was also a common kitchen. The staff was polite and helpful.

I would definitely recommend this hostel!

Hi, we 10 friends(mix of boys+ girls) stayed for 2 nights. parking space available for cars. we had rooms in ground floor and first floor. we opted 5ppl dorm, 3 ppl dorm*2.
bed + blanket :NEAT !
the cupboards inside the room managed to lock somehow, hence we could keep our laptops and other valuables.
common toilets were clean!

cons : more showers wasnt there. maintenance of showers can be improved, internet did not work !
they accepted cash only(euros)


the reception ppl were very kind enough to help us with slovenia informaion.

to be cautious : the rooms inspite of occupancy was opened and cleaned by the cleaning service. and they have mistakenly taken our tupperware boxes.
when we reported this, the reception enquired the cleaning services and the cleaning service had no idea about the box.
finally, the reception ppl managed to pay for the tupperware boxes which is worth around 15euros.

definitely would recommend !
