We were on our way from Salzburg to Croatia when we got car problems. We were stuck in Novo Mesto for two days and made a last minute booking in Hostel Situla. When we first arrived, the girl at the reception wasn’t too welcoming. Luckily, the guy who replaced her the next two days was a lot friendlier. We booked... More

Staff was friendly and helpful, breakfast was included and very decent, rooms and facilities were clean but the hostel itself lacked any atmosphere. We were the only two guests staying there at the height of summer. The dorm room was very hot as it was top floor with no fan or airconditioning.

We dropped in to stay for a night to break up our road trip. The staff were friendly and the rooms were clean. The shower rooms were average at best, with some broken fittings and were really rather small. The breakfast was sufficient but nothing to shout about. We'd recommend it as a budget option if you're in the area.

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... More

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.... More
