Youth hostel Simbol (Symbol) is set in a quiet and green part of South-Eastern Ljubljana, close to the Church of Trnovo and the Ljubljanica river. Ljubljana is a gorgeous small town with 250.000 residents and all destination are reachable by foot.

Its a leisurely 10-minute walk from Simbol to the beginning of the old part of the town center (Trnovo),which starts at the Church Of Trnovo.Within a 5 minutes walk from the Church of Trnovo you get to the town center,walking through the old part of the town center past many pubs and restaurants along the Ljubljanica river.

Buses run every 3 minutes to the very center,which means only 4 or 5 stations before reaching it. A very good choice is also a taxi,which costs only 5 because of the short distance.
