Had an absolutely wonderful time here. It might be a little rough around the edges but the friendly atmosphere makes up for that tenfold. They had nice little organised activities each night and this made for a lot of friend-making and a very relaxed, homely atmosphere. If I ever visit Bratislava again, I would stay here in a heartbeat!

Some of the lightbulbs were out in the bathroom of my room so it was dark. Hand towels in each bathroom would be nice. Awesome staff!

Fantastic location and a warm inviting atmosphere. Staff really made the place shine. You can walk into the common room and feel instantly at "home". Would certainly visit again and wouldn't think of going elsewhere in Bratislava.

Wild elephants hostel is where you should stay in Bratislava! This hostel is one of the best hostels I have stayed at. The location is perfect! It's the only hostel right in town (look for the Thai massage sign when you arrive). The staff is all very friendly, helpful, and they give excellent recommendations! Each night they had a casual pub crawl which was excellent, went to local bars, had local drinks. This was the most social hostel I've stayed in and i highly recommend everyone stay here

This is the best hostel I have stayed at so far. No other place has felt more like home since I started travelling. The staff are incredibly helpful, and amazing at creating the perfect atmosphere for guests. This is a place where you could hang out all day, or site see with the amazing location, then your choice of chill or party all night. There are nightly pub crawls and other events held by the staff to make sure everyone is having a good time. I would definitely come back!

I would recommend this hostel to anyone! The location is amazing, it sits right in the middle of the old town, and is at an easy walking distance from just about everything. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, the create a fun and social environment. It feels like a small family here. I would even recommend this hostel to people planning on visiting Vienna, seeing as it's easy to make day trips, and you'll save a lot of money on accommodation. This is the best hostel in Bratislava!

Had a great night in the Wild Elephant. Made a relatively mundane city into a night of great banter and craic. Undoubtedly, the close knit relationships between all guests and staff were what made our stay brilliant. Would highly recommend.

Can't give the best review for cleanliness or security, but staff and atmosphere was best ever! Really enjoyed my stay and highly recommend for everyone who enjoys laid-back atmosphere. Definitely a place where u can meet other backpackers.
