Youth hostels are a form of accommodation where many people share one room or a bulk dormitory. There are cheap hostels in Ljubljana, suitable for students and travellers on a tight budget.
They are also popular with backpackers as a useful way to socialize. While some hostels offer a private double bed, the lavatories are usually shared. For those who require quiet and privacy, we recommend staying in one of the budget hotels in Ljubljana.
