Hostel DIC
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Hostel Dic was a bit of a nightmare to get to - we found the directions poor so take a smartphone or print directions before you go. However once we got there it was brill. Lots of information about Ljubljana and what was going on over the days we were there. Supermarket nearby and kitchens on every floor as well as free internet rooms.
We were on the top floor so a bit too warm at night but the plus side of being so high up was the roof terrace! Complete with beanbags, chairs and blankets, it's an excellent place to spend the evening drinking beer, writing postcards and reading, whilst looking out over the city.
3 euros extra for a massive all you can eat breakfast with sausage and eggs, pastries, cereals. Amazing.

Room Tip: Try and get a lower floor to be cooler but then go up to the top floor for the roof balcony!

There were so many people of different ages wandering around this hostel it made me feel really comfortable knowing there were families allowing their kids to walk around on their own. The only downside to this being the kids really hogged the computers (free use of internet) and they seemed to have a little social gathering going on.

Anyway room was fine, although some graffiti on the beds, and there were lockers to use... bathroom was clean... staff on the front desk were really friendly. Breakfast was great (3euros extra but worth it).

I booked my first night at this hostel online (hostel booking site) no problem. I then went elsewhere in Slovenia for a few days and planned to revisit Ljubljana so called them and booked a room over the phone. When I turned up to check in they had no record of my booking so I had to find somewhere else last minute.. moral of the story... BOOK ONLINE!!! Then at least you will have some proof of your booking if anything goes wrong.

Stayed here for three nights, and really enjoyed it. The rooms are clean and spacious, but there are no tvs. They have pcs on every floor which is great, and the wifi connection is also good and fast.

The staff are all lovely and helpful and it's not far to walk to the main nightlife area. Will stay here again.

Was on the fifth floor, in a room that could do with a make over and felt like a setting for a horror film. Very odd characters wandering about yet very little atmosphere. Saw two receptionists - one a helpful and pleasant man, the other a women who was less than polite.Good internet services. If you are a young traveller and want to make friends, DO NOT stay here. I couldn't wait to get out.

The rooms are fine, the bathrooms are shared with other rooms, but clean. For 3 EUR you'll get a big - all you can eat - breakfast. It's close to the center but a little bit hidden - we had to ask a taxi driver. Friendly staff.

Good hostel, it's like a college or something they use for summer. Rooms basic but fine, bathrooms not amazing, lights didn't work but they were okay. Kitchen not too well equipped but can get by. Breakfast for €3 good, loads of choice, easy to take day trips to ohrid and skjoken caves- must do. Ljubljana lovely too. Hostel basic but fine. Staff friendly.
