Simbol hostel and the owner Dennis were absolutely spectacular. Made better by our recent bad run of hostels, my partner and I were over the moon to find Simbol Hostel was exceptionally clean, had great air conditioning and strong wifi. The double room we booked also had electronic window shutters which kept the room fairly dark and cool in the... More

I went to Simbol with my girlfriend because of the price but we were happily surprised about the accommodation. The owner Denis was really friendly and gave us excellent advice on Ljubljana. There's a littke grocery store right next to the hotel and the city isn't too far by foot. Don't expect anything fancy, though: the kitchenware and washing machines... More

Friendly host and clean rooms with comfy beds. Bathroom wasn't small and we had a fridge too. Only things to mention are the hostel is 15min from town (fine for us but for those not willing to walk this you can bus for €1.50 a bus ride I think on a card you can buy from hostel). The host also... More

Hostel rooms are nice, clean, comfortable and quiet. You can also use very clean and modern shared kitchen. it is a little bit far away from the center of the city, but a owner is very nice guy, and he drove us to the center by his car.

The room we were staying in was a good price and there was wifi that worked well. Met lots of nice people. I loved visiting Ljubljana very much and I think the stay... More

I liked this place. My private room shared a bathroom and kitchen with one other room and was clean, quiet and secure. But it's a 30 minute walk to the center of the old city and there are no good transport options.(You can rent a bike for 4 Euro/day) Taxi to the train station is about 5 Euros.

The hostel is about 40min walk from the train station and 20min from the centre. Facilities are great, though, kitchen was big anc clean. Stayed in 5-bed dorm, bathroom and kitchen were shared with one other room. Supermarket right accross the street. Only minor problem was that the receptionist was almost never around and some girls actually had to call... More

This hostel is in a great location if you have a car. It is close to the city centre (15 minutes walk) and you can avoid driving through the centre to get to/from the highway network. There is limited parking on site, although the are the hostel is located in is very quiet and residential so on street parking did... More
