Vivid and very friendly hostel with clean rooms and great stuff! The location is in an old charming district close to the center. The building itself is a part of a villa, which gives you feeling of authenticity. The hostel has a nice garden, balcony and sometimes cool activities in the living room - concerts, improv classes etc. Close to... More

This is a great hostel to stay in! its a small place about 1 km walk from the main Bus stand. The staff is really friendly and it is a small cosy hostel. Worth the price. Also has a small kitchen if you need to cook anything

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Vila Veselova is located in the diplomatic area of the city, just around the corner from Austrian, German, American and Russian embassies and within a walking distance to the town centre, main sights and other points of interest in Ljubljana. City's main park is just a stone throw away from the hostel and offers abundance of green area and relaxing walks. Proximity (within 1 km) of the major galleries and museums offer travelers endless opportunities to discover culture and history of the country. Vila Veselova was also the home of one of the famous Slovenian architect Ciril Metod Koch who rose to prominence after the Ljubljana earthquake, when he reconstructed several buildings in the Vienna Secession style. Vila is enriched with over 130 years old decoration representing the soul of Ljubljana- modern but traditionally charming. Ambient offers rest and chill out spots, garden and terrace. We offer spacious 8, 6 and 4 mixed dorm rooms, a double room, one 4-bed apartment and two kitchenettes. Gathering spots, hot drinks, syrups, air conditioning / fans, laundry, ironing, trips around Slovenia, free internet, luggage storage and own parking in the courtyard are also available. ... more   less
