A hostel in a prison... well, a former prison. Hostel Celica is a fascinating and vibrant place to stay in Ljubljana where the old prison cells have been artistically transformed into rooms that people would want to break into, not out of...
Hostel Celica is a place with a fascinating story and concept. The building that served as a military prison for more than 100 years is now a modern and lively hostel with a strong artistic touch. Several artists gave new life to the building and turned it into a hostel in which every corner tells a story. The main attraction of Hostel Celica is its prison cells, now uniquely transformed into artistic rooms.
