Directions to the Hostel
From the airport:
Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport, located in Brnik near Ljubljana, is the country's main airport. Its distance from the capital being a little less than 26 kilometres, it can be reached within a 30-minute ride. Getting to and from Ljubljana Airport really couldn’t be easier. There are plenty of options, each as simple as the last.
The cheapest option however is by Bus. The journey costs €4.10 and takes around an hour. The AlpeTour (follow the link for the timetable) service seems to be most frequently used, leaving from stop 28 at Ljubljana’s main train and bus station and using the same place as its drop off. There are up to 16 buses per day, between the hours of 05:00 and 20:00.
Those coming in the night or wishing a little more comfort in their bus ride, can choose between Shuttle options. The journey takes around 30 minute, ring ahead to your company of choice to confirm a seat or send a request to our hostel and we can book it for you (10€ per person).
If you’re willing to spend a little more on your transport, Ljubljana also possesses a vast number of Taxi services to get you from airport to town or vice-versa. Expect to pay a minimum of €25 for this journey, which should last around 30 minutes. A taxi rank stands outside the airport terminal, and those heading to Jože Pučnik can find a similar rank at the bus/train station, although we’d always recommend booking one ahead of time to your location. If you write or call a hostel within 24 hours before your arrival, we will be happy to book a taxi for you (25€ per taxi).

If you can't wait to step on the streets of Ljubljana, you can just head down on Miklošičeva street that will take you directly to the main square in Ljubljana, named after our greatest poet, Prešeren and from than you continue by the river towards Breg. It will take you around 15 minutes.

Are you coming with car?
As with any European capital, finding a free (no cost) parking space during the week in the city centre, especially until late afternoon, can be a mission of sorts.

The facility has an automated entry/exit system.
