Overall a really nice place to stay! Only spend one night there, but people are super friendly, helpful and are happy to give any advise! Only thing is that its not the cleanest, but the people make up for that!

A Wild Elephants Hostel has charakter. That's how we calles it. Sure maybe it's not like "modern and new", but who needs that on a backpacking trip? It's about atmosphere, so i love this little chrunchy look. And important to say: it was always clean, the staff is absolutely helpfull and friendly and the location is perfect!

Staff here are great and do their best to organise evening events, but there's no common area except for reception so the atmosphere is pretty poor. Location is great but not much signage so could be difficult to find (its above a Thai massage place!). Beds are comfy, toilets are regularly cleaned, showers are OK (no hot water one morning), kitchen is suitable and there are laundry facilities. No plugs next to beds was pretty annoying. All in all, it was good enough but I've stayed in better.

friendly and helpful staff. They organise lots of different activities and will go round the dorms to check if people want to do them before they go, which is lovely. The back of our dorm door had glue on the lock to stop you being locked out accidentally, however the people we were sharing with locked our dorm door as they were going out while we were still in there and we had no way of getting out without knocking hard on the door and hoping for someone to hear us.

Sorry we were rather dumb, whilst thinking we were smart with the doors... we are solving the problem already!! Happy you had a good time and you can always rely on us coming around if you are locked in to take you for a beer, haha. Seriously, sorry!!

Really great and friendly place to stay. Easy to find, easy to get to just about anywhere, staff are fellow travellers and are super friendly with different organized activities every day, like night swimming in the nearby lake, or burgers for dinner, and will go out somewhere each night, with or without you! Could maybe use a bit larger common, but I would recommend Wild Elephants to anyone travelling to Bratislava, especially as it is small, well run project with great spirit.

It was perfect! nice decoration and a more alternative solution to meet people instead of going to the typical party hostels. They do nice stuff every night, we went to a lake for night bath, I really enjoyed my stay. The stuff is so cool and relaxed people.

Great hostel in the center of Brastislava, with a good reception and really clean room I spent a very good night in this hostel.

The staff and atmosphere here is great - it's a small and incredibly friendly hostel! You'll feel right at home. The staff are always up for a chat and they organise nightly activities which are awesome to meet new people. Also cannot beat the location. Only downsides are: bunk beds are very shaky and creaky; and the bathrooms are not very well maintained.

Fantastic hostel, excellent atmosphere :) they run a nice little bar crawl which is more intimate than the standard expensive crawl.

Perfect location, although a little hard to find since they don't have a good sign (yet). Fun staff that go pub crawls every night. Clean enough and decent breakfast included.

Love this place. The atmosphere is 2nd to none. The staff make you feel at home and are very friendly. The decor is on point. The location is right in the centre of the old town. There are cooking facilities and lockers that you need your own lock for. The staff take you on bar crawls to some cheap local places where you can get a 1 euro beer = a good tijme.

Loved this hostel, the staff were exceptionally friendly and took you on a free pub crawl every night making it a very social able and fun hostel. If going to Bratislava definitely stay in wild elephants!

Awesome hostel! Jakub and the rest of the staff are so fun and friendly. I felt immediately welcome within seconds of stepping inside. For solo travelers especially, this place is one of those rare gems that provides close access to the city, ease of meeting people, and tons of cool activities going on. Highly recommend!

The thing about this hostel is the people that you meet there, its especially made so you can get to know other travelers and have a good time. Jakub is the man, hell keep you entertained. Taco taco burrito.
