“One of my favourite hostels ever.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

This hostel could barely be faulted...

The staff were always helpful, providing current information about the city (i.e. events in town), and also historical information if they knew it.

My room ("Lime Room", 6 bed mixed) was HUGE and only ever had 4 people in it. The underbed locker is fantastic and fit my suitcase AND all of my other stuff. It was amazing. The bathroom was down the hall, but it too was pretty perfect. Oh and next to the bunks, alongside the wall, were little cavities for you to put your stuff which I thought was brilliant.

(Only fault was neither the room nor bathroom had a key/lock, so it was always open for people to always go in)

The location was perfect.

The staff do your laundry for you (5 EUR, or free if you stay 4+ nights).

It was a great hostel to just relax in when you weren't exploring the town.

Room Tip: I don't know about the others but the Lime room was huge and very comfortable.

Stayed in a dorm and a private room and both were nice. The hostel has some nice touches, like free breakfast, free coffee and tea, info on what to do all over the walls and a big area to hang out. It also has a kitchen which I don't think is listed on the website - but it is pretty good. Good system to leave your leftover food as well which means there is quite a bit of free leftovers.

Best tip from my time in Ljubljana - go to the restaurant 'Cacao' for THE best ice cream EVER! It was listed on the wall for number 1 place to go for ice cream and it definitely lived up to expectations! I went back 3 times!

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.

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!
