Best Hostels in Ljubljana

Check our picks for the Best Hostels in Ljubljana.

We have compiled a list of the Best Hostels in Ljubljana and some of them are very good value starting from only €10 per night for a bed in a dorm room.

Ljubljana is a hidden gem located in Slovenia. Ljubljana is best known for its university, its many parks and its beautiful old town. Many backpackers overlook Ljubljana, as it's not as well known as other central European cities and that is their loss.

General Info on Hostels in Ljubljana

  1. Check out time – Check out time for most hostels in Ljubljana is 11 am, but at some hostels, the check out time is 10 am.  Please note that nearly every hostel in Ljubljana offers Free Luggage storage before or after you check-in or out. But it's also worth double checking this if you require this service.
  2. Free breakfast – Only some hostels in Ljubljana include breakfast in the price. If it is included in the price this saves you on the cost of breakfast.
  3. Free wifi – We all need Wifi when we travel. Every hostel will have wifi but some won't have it in the rooms, they just have it in common areas. My advice is to read some reviews on the speed of the Wifi as there's nothing worse than a slow connection.
  4. Kitchen – If the hostel you are staying at has a fully equipped kitchen, you can save money by cooking your own meals. Some hostels in Ljubljana only have partially equipped kitchens.
