Stayed here for a night, nice, clean, warm rooms, big selection of breakfast and daily bar available, interesting area in old prison. Friendly and helpful staff, made sure we knew all about Ljubljana.

Two friends and me came to that lovely hostel in Ljubljana. It is really close to the main train station and only approximately 10 minutes away from city centre. I really loved that place. The staff was friendly and always in a great mood. On new year's day we also partied in the hostel with the staff. It is the...

Spent two nights in this comfortable, cute and quirky hostel on a visit to Ljubljiana. A very cool concept which they have executed well with each room being slightly different. Beds were comfortable and rooms were relatively warm with heating (although extra blankets would have been great!). Loved the breakfast variety and staff were friendly. Overall a great place to...

We stayed here for two nights as part of a brilliant tour (self drive) of Slovenia. The "room" was a small prison cell with bunk type beds. We enjoyed the experience very much. The cell was clean, as were the shared showers, toilets,etc. This isn't a luxury hotel but a hostel with a difference. Ljubijana is an excellent city with...

This was by far the coolest hostel I have stayed at. Local artists stopped the prison from being torn down and designed the prison cells so each cell is unique. Cells hold 2-3 people so you can have a private room. Breakfast was decent but free and it was very easy to walk to the city center.

Such a cool concept. It's a prison layout but the rooms are quite specious. I'm not really a fan of hostels because of the whole shared bathroom concept. With this one however, it's very clean and ample. The showers are in separate cubicles and all have locks. The men's bathroom and shower room is separate. The staff are incredible welcoming...

We didn´t expect too much,needed just place to spend a night. We could choose from available rooms the one we prefered. All this place was very clean, comfortably warm in the cold november night. There was live jazz band plaing downstairs, but at midnight it was quiet everywhere and we slept just great. Breakfast was excellent, variety of tasty food,...

I want to thank to whoever made this former prision into a Hostel as our kids had such a great time as we did even it rain and rain during our stay! Another wonderful thing for us was that it is not only a hostel as there was so many things going on downstairs with live music one day, then...

Very unique building, one will love it if interested in art, architecture and history. It is just a few steps away from the center in a cool artistic quarter of the city. A lot of pub and bar are around with concerts in the evenings. However, our room and the bathroom was not clean, you could see the dust, hair...
