Staff was friendly and helped whenever we asked. First the room was cold (uppest floor), but when we put the heater on it got nicely warm, and there are extra blankets provided! Kitchen was too small (only one hotplate for the entire hostel) and showers and toilets are mixed all in one space. Unfortunaly only 6 spots at the breakfast...

Cozy place, friendly staff, great common room and much more! Just the...

Stayed at Vila Veselova 2 years ago but had not reviewed it then. Very friendly hostel with breakfast, clean rooms and linen, safe and economical. Just a short walk from Tivoli Park.

Upon arrival, I immediately extended my stay from two nights to four nights, just based on the lobby, reception, and common area (and I ended...

Service was absolutely great - so happy with personnel. My pink room was very spacious and comfortable, though worth mentioning are very loud drawers underneath beds that make a lot of noise when open - not very pleasing if someone check in late or too early. The windows of this room view a very busy road and railway which is...

We stayed at Vila Veselova for 2 nights. The staff were super friendly and gave us heaps of good advice on what to do/see and where to eat in ljubljana. All of their recommendations were spot on (the free walking tour was fantastic). The hostel was neat, clean and only 10 minutes walk from the city center. Highly recommended!

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.
