About Hostel Celica

Hostel Celica

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. The walls of the former prison used to divide, but today they bring people from all over the world together in a positive and youthful atmosphere. Several artists gave a new life to the building and turned it into a hostel in which every corner tells a story. The main attractions are its prison cells, now uniquely transformed into artistic rooms.

We meet the highest international standards in the category of youth hostels. We have received many awards that demonstrate the quality of our work and raise the expectations of our guests. We strive to be better every day.
Our main goal is to offer a clean, comfortable, safe and unique environment to our guests. In doing so, we also want to be responsible and respectful to our community and nature. We are mindful of the effect of our business on our environment, we implement sustainable solutions and we strive for better environmental awareness.
