Hostel Situla was renovated and furnished by experts and artists, who conveyed the art of situla into the present and gave it a modern meaning. You can buy various gifts at our shop, and we are quite certain that they will become a lovely memory for travelers and a suitable gift for you and your family or friends.
HOSTEL WITH A STORY
Hostel Situla has incorporated the history of the Halstatt period (from the early Iron Age) into its atmosphere and design. Each floor of the hostel displays wall lights that have been specially designed to present the art imprinted on situlas. Thus, each floor presents a different story from the Halstatt period (i.e., Social life, hunting & fishing, crafts & market, love).
Moreover, the sheets and linen have been designed with patterns that relate to this period.
1) Internet Café and Bar:
In the internet café you can enjoy cold and hot beverages, as you read guides, world literature, and literature about the archaeological heritage.
You can also enjoy special cocktails at the bar. We serve delicious cocktails that were specially created to resemble the ceremonial drinks that were served in situlas during the Halstatt period.
2) Information Point:
Hostel's information point provides you with details on Novo mesto's events and trips, we can also help you find a guide, who will help discover the hidden places of Novo mesto and Dolenjska.
3) Situla Restaurant:
Our restaurant offers traditional Slovene cuisine and dishes known in this area in the early Iron Age.
Lunch (everyday) from 9AM to 2PM
Dinner (Fri, Sat, Sun) from 7PM to 11PM
The garden is open from 7AM to midnight. The garden provides a relaxing environment where guests can enjoy drinks or have lunch/dinner with friends and family. We occasionally host small concerts and puppet shows.
5) Gift shop
You can buy the products (T-shirt with Situlas, books, bed linen, replica of situla made from a clay, fabric or wood, pillowcases) in our gift shop and we are quite certain that they will become a lovely memory for a traveller and a suitable gift for you as well as for your family or friends.
