I stayed here for four nights on part of a solo trip throughout the Balkans. Pros: This place is quite clean and conveniently located (less than a five minute walk from the city center). It's located near a on the other side of a really nice stretch of restaurants and cafes. Staff was very friendly and helpful with just about... More

This hostel had an excellent location- centrally located. I was in a 4 bed room just off the courtyard and it had cooking facilities which was a plus. However, a fan was not voluntarily provided so the heat in the room was unbearable. In addition, opening the windows allowed the noise and cigarette smoke to come in from the courtyard.... More

Brought back to Ljubljana following a weekend in the southeast of Slovenia, at an international event. H2Ostel beckoned on the banks of the Ljubljanica river and all seemed well. Super staff in Recepcija and the room on offer was pleasant, if unspectacular. Well placed, with the city centre all within a kilometre radius. No food on offer, but...the best coffee... More

We were staying for only one night. It is good located quite central close to the river. The wifi was good and the beds were OK aswell. It was quite cheap as well. Nice and welcoming staff. It didnt make any special impression on me.

This hostel was pretty good. The rooms were pretty standard but it was amazing that all rooms had their own separate kitchen. The staff were very friendly and forthcoming with information on what to do in the city. H2ostel was great value for money and was located only a 5min walk from the centre city and 2min walk from the... More

Excellent location, very central and also close to the train and bus station. The place was recently refurbished (in progress) so the rooms were very fresh and clean but no pictures, bed lamp and no wardrobe (for you picky ones). The service was excellent and we got our laundry done there quite cheaply too. Recommended!

My chief criterion for choosing accommodation is the location; this did not disappoint, it is excellent, being relatively close to train station and city centre. I stayed in a four bed dorm which was reasonably good value. Staff were helpful and welcoming and responsive to minor problems which were fixed very promptly. The dorm room had a useful kitchenette and... More

the location was perfect, and also the security - unfortunately our room was just horrible. there was a penetrating smell in the house, especially in the room, which is the most important reason why i wouldn't recommend staying here. the room wasn't finished, it was still under construction - there were pipes that were simply filled with plastic (bags?), no...

Everything the place lacks it makes up in location - it's nearer than a stone's throw away from the quiet passages straddling the river. But it does have its downsides. Our place was rather tiny, with the window opening towards a sidewalk and a street. The bathroom gave out some foul stench, but room was otherwise very comfy, and the... More

Unfortunately THE PLACE IS FULL of mold and bathrooms are very dirty !! When entering the room, you'd smell a foul odor coming from the bathroom and no table or any chairs no furniture in the room at all !!! And the room looks at back alley with horrible dirty passage!!! The place is a disaster avoid at all costs... More
