stayed here when it was rather quiet period. everything was good though. other travellers I have met speak very highly of this place and hence why I chose to stay here. great facilities and staff and a really good location. Irish guy who checked me in was really helpful and I'd stay here again if I ever went back to Bratislava
The hostel is in a very central place of Bratislava. Great people, cool staff. Only things is that bed's are squeaking, which makes it difficult to sleep in large room with other members.

Such a great little hostel, friendly staff and a really lovely atmosphere. The pub crawls every night means you can meet lots of great travellers as well :)
Great advice from staff, well equiped kitchen, not really hot showers, it's very humid and a little bit cold inside.
Bratislava is amazing as the Wild Elephants Hostel. Even with a weak rain on Saturday, I could enjoy the city. Bratislava has a calm atmosphere as the hostel, where we can find a good night of sleep and lovely people to talk, share experiences and get tips to be more a traveler and less a tourist. I absolute loved the city and I am pretty sure, that if I return there I will stay in the same excellent hostel :)

My favorite hostel experience! I didn't want to leave. Amazing staff, great location, super people. Highly recommend!
Positives: The staff and other travelers at Wild Elephants are great, fun people who are welcoming and will help you enjoy your stay. Nightly "pub crawls" and there are always people hanging around the small common area near the reception. Beer and dinner available for a small price. Lockers are huge (but bring your own lock). Great location, right in the city center, and great value. Negatives: Beds are loud, showers not particularly warm, towel rental extra
Awesome hostel, very chilled out...shout out to Sebastian for showing us around!
La pasé genial, el staff maravilloso, muy amables y divertidos! La visita al hospital imponente!!! Falta poner una tele para ver los partidos y una compu para usar. Lo demás 10 puntos!! Gracias
My second stay at this hostel. I really like the atmosphere here, it's just suuper laid-back. Great staff, there's always something going on. Looking forward to my next stay in Bratislava :)
Highly recommend this hostel! Such a great vibe and homely feel, I will be back!
Good location, but awkwardly stained bed sheets upon arrival, and laundry service won't dry in less than 24 hrs. Bathroom facility is basic, kitchen sufficient for meal prep.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at A Wild Elephants Hostel. The incredible staff assisting me through the rest of my journey in Slovakia, taking people out on either a chill crawl or just to explore the city and offering everybody a warm welcome, truly made this hostel a great experience for me.
This hostel has a nice homey feel and the staff are very laidback and happy to help. I got bedbug bites from the bed though, which is never fun. There ia also no real common room, but a few couches in reception, but this means everyone sort of congregates together, so it's kind of nice.
Great hostel and GREAT STAFF! Only wish I could have stayed longer...highly recommend for a couple of days stay in Bratislava!
I really like the concept of not having too much tourists that only come to get drunk until the pass out. sadly for our room that did not work. still the hostel is highly recommenable.. very nice, friendly and relaxed stuff!! :)
I had the most wonderful stay at Wild Elephants! The staff and the atmosphere are what makes this place great. You'll have a hard time not having something to do or someone to hang out with during your stay. Everyone became a tiny elephant family with their friendliness and inclusiveness. The facilities were clean, the showers warm and the rooms excellent. Shoutout to Seb, Grace, Attila, Stephen and any staff I didn't formally meet. It was an absolute pleasure to adventure with you! -Brit;)
Great hostel! Spent one night there and absolutely loved it! Hope I can come sometime soon!
It was a hostel for backpacker with a lot of free food and stuff. Great location and staff but no real common area as the only common area was the kitchen and that is really freazing during this time of the year. There is not enough eletricity sockets for everyone in the dorms.
