Description - Hotel

Hostel Situla offers overnight accommodations (with breakfast) in different rooms- single bed rooms, two-bed rooms, dorms, and the two-bed ensuite (i. e., Dwelling of a Hallstatt prince).

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 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.
