is located in a former military prison in Metelkova. The building that used to imprison people has, after a 10-year restoration period, been opened to the world through architecture, art and people, where travellers can find their own piece of the story.
A group of eighty artists transformed the building into a unique youth hostel, bar, restaurant and art gallery. The features of the hostel are the twenty former prison cells; now, these represent hostel rooms, and each of them is a unique art piece with prison bars on the windows and doors. The hostel was awarded the title of being the most unique hostel
; furthermore, it was ranked among the 25 most unique hotels in the world as well as being the best hostel according to the ratings of guests. This is only part of the recognition that brought Celica to the top of the charts of popularity according to world travelling bibles, such as Lonely Planet and Rough Guides.
