This 14-room 'hostel' in a bright-orange building (sonce means 'sun') on the south side of the Drava River is really an elegant, budget hotel. The decor is colourful but subdued and the common areas, especially the kitchen and garden terrace, are a delight. The Sonce is just over the footbridge from the centre.
The accommodation units at Sonce are bright and elegantly decorated and feature hardwood floors and a heating system, as well as views of Ptuj Castle or the Old Town. Each room has a private bathroom.
Guests can use a computer and watch TV in the common area, which is located on the ground floor. Sonce has a small garden with different plants and a seating area.
There is a vending machine on site with a selection of drinks and snacks. A bakery can be found across the street, while grocery shops, bars and restaurants start 100 metres from the hostel. Ptuj Castle and the Old Town are 500 metres away.
Terme Ptuj Spa Resort and Ptuj Golf Club are 1 km from Sonce Hostel. Main Bus and Train Station are 2 km away. Maribor Airport is at a distance of 25 km.
