Hostels in Slovenia that we think are the best and worth staying at

Hostels, or backpackers as they are also known, are a very popular form of cheap accommodation in Slovenia. They are ideal for groups, youths and single travelers as they are designed to help you meet and interact with other travelers.

Slovenia hostels are almost always in great locations – in cities they are generally very well located close to public transport lines and tourist attractions and in coastal areas they are usually within walking distance to a beach and with great views. Most spaces (like bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens and lounges) and amenities are usually shared, but there are also some facilities that provide en-suite rooms. While you might not get as much privacy, hostels are usually cheap and of great value. Hostels in Slovenia generally also have cheap and sometimes free services such as WiFi, laundry, luggage storage, fully-equipped kitchen facilities, local tours, live music and free meal nights. They have hang out rooms, often filled with games, TV’s, and DVD’s. The staff in hostels is almost always very friendly and helpful. More often than not the staff are either other travelers or a local who enjoys the interaction with the traveling community. They are usually a fantastic source of information for things to do and see in the area, especially when it comes to budget travel.

Hostels in Slovenia that we recommend
HOSTEL TRESOR
Ljubljana, Slovenia
Hostel Tresor Ljubljana Slovenia
Hostel Tresor has earned the reputation of being one of the best hostels in Europe. It is situated in the perfect location, on a shopping street, only a two minute walk to the main square and it is very easy to walk everywhere from it. The hostel is very well managed and has a lot of character - the building was once a bank. The rooms are very nice, really spacious, a lot of charger sockets and the beds and pillows were really comfortable. The toilets are clean, the showers are clean and there are plenty of showers on each floor meaning you never have to wait. There are also laundry facilities available. The hostel also provides several common areas and there's a great atmosphere when it comes to meeting people. Probably the only downside of the place is that there's no proper kitchen, which is a shame given the size of the hostel. The included breakfast is basic but adequate for the rate. The staff are friendly and approachable, always smiling and quick to help - to provide tourist information and to direct to interesting places, to recommend activities and more. In summary, a very clean, well-maintained hostel with a perfect location, free breakfast and free Wi-Fi.

HOSTEL CELICA ART
Ljubljana, Slovenia
Hostel Celica Art Ljubljana Slovenia
Hostel Celica Art is a very unique and famous hostel, converted from the prison of the former Yugoslav army. It is in a great location, surrounded by some really cool street art and installations, and just 15 minutes walk from the old town centre and 10 from train station. The place is really awesome and full of character - walking up the stairs and through the hallway definitely gives you that prison feel and the hostel includes lots of nice touches like stair railings made of driftwood and a cool Indian-inspired sitting area. It's recently renovated and clean, but the original roots of the building are abundantly clear. The rooms are nice (used to be prison cells). The included breakfast is decent. All the staff are super nice and helpful and happy to recommend things to do. The atmosphere is good, with a nice bar and patio area and lots of comfortable seating inside - really lots of room for social activities indoors and out - something is planned most evenings (like BBQ night, etc). The common bathroom and shower facilities are clean and well set up. The wifi is free, but it's a little patchy.

The free WiFi works only in one side of the hostel - they need to invest in another modem/booster. The parking is a bit of an issue in Piran - you have to park right outside town in the central parking facility - it is a little less than a 15 minute walk, or you can catch a free bus into town that runs every ten minutes.
