Fodor's Expert Review Hostel Celica

Metelkova 8, Ljubljana, N/A Slovenia, Slovenia

Celica, which translates to "a cell," is just that: a reconstructed prison that has become one of the most fascinating hostels in the region. Situated across from the train station and a five-minute walk from the Old Town, Celica is a convenient budget-friendly option. The hostel is located in the vibrant area of Metelkova, an artsy hangout and center for nightlife. The management is young and politically active; ask them about the youth projects they are running.

PROS

  • Energetic and involved staff
  • Fascinating venue setup
