    It was a unique place, the people were very helpful and accomodating, it was a "must" experience

    Fun experience to sleep in a former cell. Great events organised by the staff: all you can eat bbq and cheap drinks. Good location and good price

    Noisy

  • Couple

    Design is cute, furniture stylish, room not too small, hostel close to the train and bus station. Breakfast was very good.

    Price not hostel-like. Nights can be noisy since young people stay late in the bar, what we did not mind since we stayed late too. However the wall seemed not sound-proof, people walking on the floor can wake you up.

    well desighned special building spotless and in a quirky settfing

  • Single

    the staff were exceptionally nice - the location was central and one of the cheapest options in ljubljana

    it was very basic - it is a hostel and not a hotel - but for £55 it could have been a little less sparse - it is an old prison - but i was not quite prepared for the lack of comfort . but to be fair it is geared to younger backpackers who all seemed to love it !

    Great concept and use of historic building. Renovations / art work impressive. Very handy location

    Poor quality breakfast; no curtains / blinds on bedroom windows; loud music played in restaurant (below bedrooms) way too early in the morning.

    The novelty of the place appealed to me when I booked and I was not disappointed. Place is very clean despite the huge numbers of people coming and going. Staff are warm and welcoming and the 24 hour desk manning is good especially as the free internet user name and password is changed every 4 hours! There is event going on each niht and the jamming session while I was there was superb and free! I heard that it is in Rough Guide's 25 places you must stay and I'd have to agree.

    A-la Carte meals end at 18:0, and only sandwiches and pizzas are then available. This is a bit too early to finish, I think.

    It was a very unusual but interesting experience! I would recommend it to people who are not afraid of experiments.

  • Couple

    I liked the location and design of the building. Everything is colourful and place itself is full of life. Breakfast was also pretty generous. Toilets were clean and staff was friendly.

    The rooms are terrible. Beds are on top of room which is not very convenient itself, mattrasses are uncomfortable and when you add dangerous vertical iron ladders, the sum is absolutely negative. It's not a nice place to stay, and it's too expensive. I don't plan to stay there ever again.

    The solution of prison cells - it was interesting!

    interesting for 1 night wouldnt want to stay for a week.Fun and well appointed if you need a bunk before touring the rest of the country

  • Couple

    Free parking and friendly staff. Good location, not too far from city center. Lots of history in the wall.

    If you plan to sleep early then this hostel is not a good choice. We got a room facing the courtyard and this hostel are full of happy young party people. But I think they close the courtyard after midnight. And the price they offer is price of a hotel, I expect less for a hostel with shared bathroom.

  • Group of friends

    The cell was quite warm with little ventilation

  • Couple
    7.8

    The idea of sleeping in a former prison cell was great. The rooms (cells) are very nicely created by different artists. The breakfast was good and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Also the atmosphere around the hostel is very enjoyable.

    The shared bathroom and toilets are not always as clean as they should be, but this is probably more related to the visitors than to the hostel staff.

  • Couple

    What a great concept: lodging inside an old prison!...so ecclectic, and awesome artwork.

    Nothing -- great amenities for a hostel, excellent staff and very convenient location.
