“cheap and relax hostel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

I decided to describe Hostel Situla.Located in the new town. As a student, I chose to practice working in the hostel. I was doing all the work, from the receptionists, cleaners, waiteres. In short, I have to admit that the hostel is very clean, cheap and friendly home away from home for guests. has great rooms, breakfast. There are also restaurants and bars where you can eat, Abbas is close to the shopping mall. There is also a lot of natural resources, for recreation, hiking, relaxing. the staff are very friendly, if you need some infomations, they will help you.

It’s right in the middle of town, it has two free parking spaces and the staff are very friendly. That’s all there is positive to say about this place. The room we stayed in was dark and dingy, the narrow slit of a window in the door and the single, low-powered light bulb lending it the gloomy air of a prison cell. The remains of a number of squashed insects on the walls were particularly unsavoury. Breakfast consisted of doorsteps of stale bread with slithers of meat and cheese. And it’s not particularly cheap. 23 euros per person is only 2 euros less than proper B&B’s charge in much bigger Maribor.

For professional reasons I had to vistit Nova Mesto to evaluate the cultural heritage projects. This hostel plays a key role in the new approach to experience heritage in a different way then just visit a site or a museum. The unique Situla culture is the the theme and the design of this hostel. This creates a very pleasant atmosphere. This Hostel is professional run by a student organization which brings a vibrant environment of a cultural centre for many groups. I had a excellent lunch with local specialities. Sure a hostel is not the 4/5 star that is usually booked for my business trips. But what a fresh breath of air, spending the night in a clean room, with wifi free and fast, excellent bed, share the clean bathroom and feel the culture of the local heritage and the writers in residence. Priceless!

Wound up in Nevo Mesto randomlly. Decided to try hostel out. One of the nicest I've ever stayed in. Super clean and modern. Lots of patios to relax on. Large 4 bunk room with huge lockers. English speaking reception. Nice lounge area. Bathrooms were mixed sex and very clean. Only one shower in men's. Cool, artsy crowd. Not much to do in town though. A great place to stay!!
