Best Hostels in Ljubljana

Check our picks for 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.

Quick Overview of the best hostels in Ljubljana

Here’s an overview by category of the awesome hostels mentioned in this article. Scroll down to see a full description (and images) of each recommended hostel.

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.

5. Costs

In bed in a dorm room starts at €10 per night (normally large dorm rooms), but expect to pay €12 to €15 per night in a medium-sized dorm room (8 to 10 beds). Prices at the weekend tend to be 20% to 40% higher as there is greater demand.
