Very friendly and welcoming staff who were happy to show you the best bits of Bratislava. The location couldn't be beaten it was right in the centre. Also everyone staying there was friendly and welcoming worth a stay

Incredibly friendly staff and big hostel, very spacious, except for the kitchen area which can get very crowded easily. The stove was very small but other than that, good stay!

We stayed here for a night and honestly that was enough. When we arrived the staff seemed polite at first and happy to help. However in passing we recieved an unprofessional remark from a staff member, which left us feeling uncomfortable there. Two of us had to brave freezing cold showers and there wasn't enough plug sockets for all of us in the room. The atmosphere was cold and odd, but so was our whole trip to Bratislava. We left feeling we'd entered the Twilight Zone.

Everything you need from a hostel if you want to meet people and feel welcome. As soon as we arrived people were telling us about their plans for the evening and that we should join them. Everyone's friendship is very genuine. I think the main reason for this is staff who also live at the hostel. They will do everything they can to help you out (one guy even found a pair of shoes for me to wear when mine were wet). We only stayed for two nights but I wish it could have been more.

Fantastic hostel smack in the centre of the old town. About time Bratislava had a backpacker hostel, run by and aimed at backpackers and here it is! Thanks again guys, we had a great time :)

It is a good social hostel with a staff which are like a family. They will take you out every night (except on Sundays) so you don't have to worry about being alone - or bored.

The room was a bit run down but it wasn't too bad. It was right in the middle of the historical center. The kitchen and the common room were very small. It would have been overpriced if it wasn't for the location. The staff was great.

Great hostel. Amazing location - hostel is basically in Old Town Square. Staff are super friendly and are fellow travellers who are always ready for a good time and organizing nightly activities. It's like a little family staying there. WiFi was perfect in room. Would stay here again.
