This is my second time to stay in this hostel and everything was just great! They improved a lot, the kitchen is cleaner and they added a common room with TV, too. The hostel is small and having a warm atmosphere. Staffs are super nice, so you can easily get touch with the others. The location is perfect, in the middle of the old town, so you can find bar, restaurant or massage right next to the hostel (but it is not noisy at anytime of the day). I love this hostel a lot. Thanks Wild Elephant:)

Loved our stay besides an issue with my friends bed resulting in having to move rooms etc. but staff are awesome and the vibe here is amazing too loved meeting so many new people. Almost impossible not to make a new friend.

A really nice hostel, the staff is really cool and relaxed, I would recommend to stay in the hostel for a few days if you want to discover a bit about the (day & night) life in Bratislava. :)

Stay here. The staff are young and travelers themselves. They make you feel like part of the team. At night they have community dinners and they also have chilled activities such as movie night, or chilled pub crawl. Bratislava is a small city and you could finish it in a day but this hostel made me want to stay the extra night. It just gives you that warm fuzzy feeling.

The was a best choice that I did, choose this funky hostel. Perfect location ( can't be better), middle everything. The stuff was very friendly, feel like in the family. I just like a view from my window on Frantiskarske Namestie. Room was spacious. really clean. Only one negative think was, the iron beds little squeeze. I would definitely recommended this Hostel.

I had a good stay here due to the other travellers I met there however the staff clique were trying so hard to make the place seem 'chilled' that I found the experience pretty unrelaxing.

I am sorry for that, I guess different people chill differently :( And you just were not lucky to be in the same chill mindset? - Einstein, A; 1935

One of my favourite places in Europe, the staff are amazing and make you feel right at home. The hostel feels more like a family holiday and this is the only place I'll ever stay in Bratislava. I'm missing this place so so much.

Don't stay anywhere else in town! Whether its a pub crawl or a movie night, the awesome staff here will make you feel at home any day of the week. Essential ingredients (coffee/tea/pasta/cereal) free; home cooked dinner for €3. Can't recommend this place enough.

I was only a few hours before of my flight to come back the next day to Madrid, Since i Was there , such as the owner as the crew give all kind of information, good treatment and even they invite me to dinner ... The bathrooms are new, the kitchen is cosy and the room are correct , for the price is absolutely cool. Althought For me the best is the enviroment. If you are travelling alone , as I was , is the best option.
