A buddy and I recently visited Ljubljana from Scotland. I had been to the city before, however I chose another hostel. While I don't regret my original choice in the slightest, I'm really pleased I chose Celica this time. You will struggle to find a more unique hostel in a more unique setting. It sits on Metelkova, which is perfect. It has a great atmosphere and a really vibrant feel in the bar. The food is pretty good for a snack before heading out for the day and it serves a more than basic breakfast for only a little extra. As for the rooms, it's unlikely you will stay in any other prison in Slovenia without having committed some sort of misdemeanour so the novelty is very unique. The cells are pretty odd in a really cool way.. Good showers, and the hostel itself is absolutely spotless. It seems very clear they take great pride in their hostel, and quite right too. This will be my base of operations from now on in one of my favourite cities in the world. I can't recommend it highly enough. There, I hope this makes up for us oversleeping and missing our check out : )
