Spend the night behind bars. 20 former prison cells have been converted / transformed into unique artistic hostel rooms, each and every one of them with specific story and amazing concept.
More than 80 local and international artists joined forces to convert the former prison into a funky youth hostel, artistically upgrading it from a place of confinement into an open space, place of personal freedom and artistic expression. Each of the 2- and 3-bedded cells is a unique work of art* with one essential feature in common: prison bars on windows and doors. Each interior detail has its meaning and story to tell. Looking for a true Celica experience? Then spending the night behind bars is the answer.
*Guests are assigned the cells at the moment of booking and canot choose them according their tastes or wishes. The same way the prisoners could not choose theirs back at the time. A nice element of surprise, completely free of charge
Each artist or group of artists got 2600 € for cell renovation. Some managed to get additional funds from sponsors.
All cells have bars from prison times on doors and windows. 5 of them are original, the rest were made later.
All cells have built in additional small window without bars that allows guests to see the horizont.
Over 80 artists paricipated in their creative renewal and today each cell is completely unique and a priceless work of art.
