What a neat, clean and friendly hostel, right in the center of old Ljubljana. A model of how more hostels should be like. Would go back there any day! My only suggestion would be for them to try and proved more place to put stuff, especially in the bathroom and for the bunker bed user.

Stayed for a couple of nights in the city and the room was just about acceptable. Nowhere to store things in the bathroom, useless Wifi (kept dropping out on multiple devices) and plumbing amiss somewhere as the bathroom didn't smell good at all, not a good thing to greet you in a hotel room. They were trying to mask this... More

Location was great. A short and easy walk from the train/bus station, and right on the river, with the castle, market and main square all nearby. Room was basic but comfortable. Good wifi. Staff were friendly and helpful. Shared bathroom was kept clean. Nothing horrible about my stay. No garbage can in the room. Laundry was pretty expensive (8€).

My boyfriend and i rented a private room, with private bathroom, with nicely modern furniture and very tidy place. A great hostel, with kind staff and a great location. Unfortunately there were a few unpleasant surprises. In the shower there was only cold water. The window was looking at the street where it was very noisy at night. And the... More

Stayed here for three nights in an apartment with a kitchen and a bathroom which was worth it. The room was cleaned every day and done properly. Wasn't too noisy at night as well. Wasn't too expensive and staff were really helpful! People were nice in the room and lockers were good! Would recommend this for anyone staying in Ljubljana

It was great for one night and clean enough.. and the location even better! The only thing that bothered me was that the other people in the dorm kept it loud after hours and I had to get up early to catch my flight.

I stayed here for four nights on part of a solo trip throughout the Balkans. Pros: This place is quite clean and conveniently located (less than a five minute walk from the city center). It's located near a on the other side of a really nice stretch of restaurants and cafes. Staff was very friendly and helpful with just about... More

This hostel had an excellent location- centrally located. I was in a 4 bed room just off the courtyard and it had cooking facilities which was a plus. However, a fan was not voluntarily provided so the heat in the room was unbearable. In addition, opening the windows allowed the noise and cigarette smoke to come in from the courtyard.... More

Brought back to Ljubljana following a weekend in the southeast of Slovenia, at an international event. H2Ostel beckoned on the banks of the Ljubljanica river and all seemed well. Super staff in Recepcija and the room on offer was pleasant, if unspectacular. Well placed, with the city centre all within a kilometre radius. No food on offer, but...the best coffee... More
