Property Description

Wild Elephants is the only hostel in the historical city center and the only hostel managed by travelers for travelers. Small in size, but big in passion. Before you book, please read the full description!

Dear travelers, we are very highly rated by our guests and are super grateful for it. The reasons are very simple. We try to host everyone like you visit our home. We are NOT the most fancy hostel, best equipped, newly furbished or most professional, but we love what we do and we share this love with people who seek a free-spirit zone, experience nice things and make new friends. We are not an “uberhostel”…

Welcome to Bratislava, also known as the beauty on the Danube. Our city has great potential for you to chill out in a relaxed, laid-back town. As opposed to cities like Vienna, Budapest or Prague, here you will find it easy to circumnavigate, find narrow allies with picturesque scenes, small tea and coffee houses and much more.

The Wild Elephants welcomes you to the only hostel in Bratislava run and built by backpackers for backpackers. As some would say, 'mi casa es su casa', and you are welcome to chill in the heart of the historical city center. Located literally 10 steps from the Main Square of Bratislava in a quiet alley next to a small fountain, underneath a big tree.

Our hostel is an experience, unlike many others. We ARE NOT a cheap hotel, so if you are looking for one, write us an email and we will be grateful to send you a few tips. Here you find the complete opposite, especially the homelike atmosphere, where staff and guests form one bunch. This is why we prefer groups of less then 4 people, because otherwise it is difficult socializing. The Wild Elephants is not about Television or other amenities such as Xbox or Wii. It is about meeting travelers, socializing, cooking together, getting locals and visitors mixed up in bars and having the best beds, best staff and best location.

The hostel gives you the opportunity to explore the city just by walking out from the main entrance and getting lost in the narrow streets. We have free WIFI so you can continue doing the online social jazz, when not joining one of our activities. Best of all, our staff will do the best we can to make you feel at home, by offering different trips, movie nights, cooking events and all the enjoyable elephant activities. We mix hip eco furniture with some rustic parts so when you crash on the couch you will feel just like an elephant at home. We are always improving the place and always welcome creative people with great ideas, so open-minded people are more then welcome!

Any kind of groups over 4 are disallowed.
We do not accept stag parties, birthday parties and similar groups of guys that fly in to Bratislava just to get drunk, whatever the number of people is.
Kids who cannot handle alcohol and people under 18 are discouraged from staying here.
We love everyone else though! ;)

+ Government tourist tax is 1.70 EUR per night and is NOT included (except students between 18 to 26 years).

Things to Note

We are a small hostel. Therefor we only accept single travellers or small groups. We do not accept groups over 4, there is no difference if it is 1 reservation or multiple reservations. If you come to our hostel and there is more than 4 of you, we will charge you for the 1st night but you will not be permitted to stay with us.

Government City tax is 1.70EUR extra for every night if you are 18-70. Students 18-26 do not need to pay this tax.
Arriving late at night? The main gate downstairs is locked after midnight, in case it is locked, just ring the bell on the left side of the door (big grey button :P) once and the night receptionist will come and get you in 30 seconds.
