That hostel has the best host ever! Denis!! Life saver, helpful, he is the man! I had a great time over there. Stayed more then 20 days. It was clean, warm, and not so far away from center. During the spring you can able to walk 15 min to center. There is a good restaurant near, and supermarket in front....

Good choice for a cheap night in Ljubjiana, 30 minutes walk to get in the city centre. We were given the possibility to check-in in the late evening. We had a 3 beds room which was not perfectly cleaned but yet comfortable enough, especially to spend one night in it. The keeper was very kind.

We only stayed here for the one night enroute to Croatia but I have to say, we will be going back.... We feel there is so much we didn't see, and will be staying in the same hostel too. We had our own room, ( up to 4 people) and had to share the bathroom with another room, but it...

Simbol hostel and the owner Dennis were absolutely spectacular. Made better by our recent bad run of hostels, my partner and I were over the moon to find Simbol Hostel was exceptionally clean, had great air conditioning and strong wifi. The double room we booked also had electronic window shutters which kept the room fairly dark and cool in the...

I went to Simbol with my girlfriend because of the price but we were happily surprised about the accommodation. The owner Denis was really friendly and gave us excellent advice on Ljubljana. There's a littke grocery store right next to the hotel and the city isn't too far by foot. Don't expect anything fancy, though: the kitchenware and washing machines...

Simbol Hostel was great budget accommodation within walking distance of central Ljubljana. The guy running it Martin is very great and helpful. We had a great stay!

I liked this place. My private room shared a bathroom and kitchen with one other room and was clean, quiet and secure. But it's a 30 minute walk to the center of the old city and there are no good transport options.(You can rent a bike for 4 Euro/day) Taxi to the train station is about 5 Euros.
