A superb place to stay! Clean and well-fitted. After 5 days driving through Europe with my cat en-route to Greece (April 2010) the washing machine & tumble dryer were particularly welcome! Free internet (wi-fi) was useful too. Clean simple rooms with comfortable beds. Good (high-tech LOL) security. Easily accessible with parking. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Ljubljana was an unscheduled stop - I'm glad it happened - wonderful city, friendly people and great places to see. Very clean & welcoming. Excellent pubs and great restaurants with superb local dishes.
Celica is an amazing project and one worth experiencing. I would say, though, that the 12-bed dorm is pushing it a little too far in terms of filling the space with beds. AMuch too crushed but even then, the shower and toilet facilitis are vastly superior to anything else I,ve seen in a hostel. As for the rest of Celica, well next time I will check out one of the rooms when a girlfriend comes with me or I am not leaving at 5am .-) Last night the entertainment was a devastating bunch of virtuoso musicians doing whatever it is they were doing (it was their own music, their very own) and clearly a lot of people come to Celica for the entertainment alone as there was quite a crowd of non-residents. Definitely a must-visit place!
How cool was that? I can now say I've stayed in prison!
Remove the link! There's no Most Hostel!!!
We've stayed in about 30 hostels and this one is the WORST. There was no hot water, but when we complained, the owner insisted it was a small problem and refused to refund the 2nd night, even though we only stayed for 1 night. And he said hostels are for young people who should not mind the water heater breaking down, which was just a machine's problem. He clearly did not understand the concept of customer service. He even said many hostels in Europe don't provide hot water, which is completely ridiculous - this is year 2010, not 1910! And to make things worse, he made rude racial remarks against us, saying that there are worse hostels in China and we Chinese should know better. So, fellow travelers, if you still want to book this hostel, make sure you're not Chinese, don't complain to the owner no matter what, and don't book the private room which doesn't have its own WC. The only good thing about this hostel is Vanja the manager, who's very nice and hardworking. But I pity her for working under such an unreasonable man!
This is kind of an upscale hostel with a great staff and nice rooms. Some oddities like no storage lockers and only one major bathroom, though. Would recommend asking how full it is when you book.
that's weird ...
OK, not the newest, but it's well within stumbling distance!
Had a great time here. Prison is not so bad after all!
This has to be one of the worst hostels ever. Don't stay here! The staff are outrageously rude, incompetent and unhelpful, they didn't honour our reservation, and put us in a far-flung suburb instead. There was nothing but confusion and misunderstandings from start to finish, culmnating in them attempting to withhold our passports. I'm a very easy going person, but the staff drove me bonkers! Don't try to reason with them - it won't work, just find another hostel. It wasn't just my group that had problems, a group of students from Munich had similar trouble with the rip-off merchants that are Alibi hostels. The rooms were dirty and the bathrooms were shabby. There was only one shower, and the advertised bike rental service was only one bike. This may not apply to the central hostel, as we couldn't stay there, but the complaints about the staff apply to both.
