Overview

About Hostel Celica

Former prison transformed into Funky Art house hostel and more!

Hostel Celica is much more than a hostel. Following the departure of the Yugoslav army in 1991, this former prison has been transformed into a hostel, art gallery, tourist attraction and meeting place with cultural events, winning many accolades.

Due to the slow bureaucracy of the former Yugoslavia, transferring ownership of these former army barracks from government ministries to the peoples' collective set up to run the hostel by the city of Ljubljana was a surprisingly lengthy undertaking. However, the patience and tenacity of the artists who have supported this project has finally been repaid with a well admired conversion to a 'funky, hip' hostel that is the recipient of many accolades for the cell rooms and overall hospitality.
 
Lonely Planet proclaimed Hostel Celica as the world's Hippest hostel #1. Rough Guides included it into the world's ultimate 25 places to stay. UHOTW think it's a great place too!

Jailhouse Rock!

Awesome place - brings fun back to hostels. More expensive than usual for a hostel, but TOTALLY worth it!
