Hostel 24 is a small family hostel, which opened its doors in June 2012. Our exellent location, friendly staff and clean rooms are the reason why we are one of the highly rated hostel in Ljubljana. The hostel is small and humble, has high level of cleanliness and a welcoming staff just waiting to greet you at the door and be part of your story when you tell it to your family and friends.
We offer 55 beds in 15 cosy rooms, each including their own bathroom, apart from the 12 – bed dorm room which has 2 bathrooms. Each guest room at Hostel 24 has a private bathroom with toilet and shower. Our guests can also use a smaller kitchen and laundry service. There is also a common room with tables for dining. Personal items can be locked in a separate luggage room with the help of the staff.
The guests also have access to free Wi-Fi and free use of lockers (with a deposit). We don’t offer parking spaces, but there is a bigger garage in the proximity of the hostel (aproximately 150 m from the hostel) and there are always plenty of parking spaces on the marked parking spots in the streets around the hostel. We are located just 5 minutes walking from the main square, where the center of all events is. Just a few steps away from all the important events taking place in Preseren Square, sorounded by popular restaurants and cafés. You are welcome to bring your own beddings, sleeping bag and/or towel but you get a clean set on the beds.

MEET THE TEAM!
In love with places I’ve never been to and people I’ve never met. Living between Slovenia, Thailand and Cambodia and dreaming to travel the world someday. I love going to techno parties, cuddling my 3 cats and from every trip I go to I bring a new tattoo with me.
If you fear failure, you are already considering it an option! Im a fun loving person with a big apetite for travelling. My moto is work hard play hard and I stick by it 100%! You will usually see me on my bike around town or in a caffee in the center chilling and plotting where to travel next.
Traveller soul who loves the job in Hostels 24. I love meeting interesting people, learn about different countries and live life at the fullest everyday!
1. How did you decide to open a hostel?
Trying to connect people travelling. Especially millennials right now being equipped with all types of gadgets and websites instead of breaking out the grid and reach out to a fellow traveller. If you can establish that connection between fellow guests it makes a hostel a place of new friends and another home. When you yourself travel at a period in your life and stay in the circle of backpackers, hostels, cheap beer and awesome experiences and stories you get hooked on the alltime relaxed and worries free life.
2. What is the biggest challenge you are facing in running/managing your hostel?
The biggest challenge in running and upbringing the hostel was managing finance and financing new rooms or renovation. The hostel was started in a building built in 1928 and the owner began renovating the old Mercator market with high ceilings into accommodation. So by all means every inch of the place was used, considering the great location.
3. What makes your hostel unique?
I would say that the rooms make the place the most unique. All the rooms are equipped with bathrooms and showers which not all hostels offer. Also the rooms having bunk beds with double beds help getting groups and families. Smaller size rooms are not a downside but a good point to make new friends, when tripping over someone else’s shoes. And we can never praise the staff more, who make our hostel soulfull.
4. What is the one thing that your guests like the most in your hostel?
Our attentive, opened and welcoming staff and the funky vibe give the hostel a cool feeling..Kind of makes you not wanna leave the place. Ljubljana is also one of the most comfortable, compact and warm places in Europe. We are constantly trying to improve customer service and guest experience, by listening to and conversing with our guests. Getting positive feedback is the best reward.
5. What makes your destination/city a place everyone should visit?
Car traffic is restricted in the centre, leaving the leafy banks of the emerald-green Ljubljanica River, which flows through the city’s heart, free for pedestrians and cyclists. In summer, cafes set up terrace seating along the river and it almost feels like a nightly street party. Also Ljubljana was rewarded the green capital of Europe in 2016.
6. What is the best time of the year to visit you?
Our favourite time of the year is definitely summer, when the locals leave town for holiday and it gets quieter, you can bike anywhere and you will feel like you are in a metropolitan city when you hear all different kinds of accents and languages throghout the city with tourist swarming our charming little capital.
7. What would you recommend to your guests as a must see/must do in your city?
If you are looking to party or relax, Ljubljana is the perfect place. All year round you have different kinds of events suitable for every taste and age. If staying at Hostel 24, you can stroll past the dragon bridge, have a cup of delicious coffe at Petkovškovo nabrežje in one of the many riverside bars…Have some delicious lunch in Klobasarna (tasty sausages), maybe rent a bike and head on to Špica, newly renovated river bank in the southeast of Ljubljana. Even hike up to the castle hill for a gorgeous view of the small town. The Ljubljana castle is just minutes away from our hostel.
