Hosťovce is a village located on the alluvial plains of the Bodva and Turňa Rivers. A border crossing to Hungary is located nearby. The first written record of the village comes from 1263. Its name is derived from the Hungarian word for guest. Also at present, most of the citizens are of Hungarian nationality. Original inhabitants were farmers, but they also quarried limestone and burnt lime. Rare amethyst deposits have been found here as well. The World War I and World War II eras were very hard for the village. Between 1964 and 1990, Hosťovce was a local part of the Nová Bodva village. The most dominant sacral buildings in the village are the Roman-Catholic and Reformed churches. Other interesting original buildings have been preserved, such as a watermill. The customs building at the border reminds of recent times of passport controls. Hosťovce belongs into the group of smaller villages with a good level of public services.
