Hostel AVA is totally depressing place. everyhing is grey, beds are totally uncomfortamle, even light is really loud. and acording to the facilities hostel is really expensive (comparing also to western europe hostels, not only this area). Staff don't care about nothing. Very bad wi-fi. Only location is awesome, nothing more.

We weren't expecting much from Ljubljana, it was just supposed to be a stop off on our way down to Italy, how pleasantly surprised we were! The hostel is in a great location - just a 5 minute walk into the historic old town. The staff were helpful and the hostel was clean and neat with good bedding and showers!...

After a terrible hostel experience in Budapest, hostel Ava was such a relief. It's in an excellent location, the staff were helpful and the rooms were clean. The common room is handy and seems quite social, although it would benefit from some more activities for rainy days. The mattresses in the rooms were the worst I've experienced however, so wouldn't...

Stayed here for one night with friends while inter-railing. Facilities were quite poor. Rooms were very sparce, shower rooms and bathrooms were not very clean. The beds were very low quality. Location was extremely good, however, with everything within 5 minutes walking city centre.

Extremely uncomfortable beds, you could feel the feathers like bumps all over your back. Also no hot water at all in the showers, had to shower with ice cold water. No hot water in the bathrooms either. No ac, and with the windows open extremly noisy the whole night. The staff is really unhelpful and rude. The price is low,...

Really good location, nice staff and very clean. Doesn't really have a hostel atmosphere but the place is really nice and comfortable. We would book here again. Toilets in every floor, showers on one and kitchen and common room at the top one.

This hostel really is the pinnacle of average. If there was an award for the most average hostel this would win. Every redeeming feature is met with one that counters it, just to make sure that hostel is neither great or terrible. They've really put the effort in to make sure this is a place to stay that evokes absolutely...

After travelling around Europe for summer, staying in hostels at every destination this is hands down the worst hostel ever! Apart from being in a really good location this hostel is shocking! It is a university/college that has been 'converted' into a hostel for the summer. Our room was basically an empty office with some makeshift beds literally thrown together...

Apart from the beds which were absolutely awful, they were like prison beds, springs with a sheet on them - so uncomfortable it was a reasonably nice stay. Mixed sex showers, which didn't bother me, it was fairly clean. A lot of mosquitoes but not much the hostel can do about that. The room was hot and there was no...
