Great staff, felt very welcome. Great location and they put on a fab bar crawl and helped us with everything we needed. Only Negative Is Lack Of Wifi In rooms


Great location in old town, clean, helpful staff.


Really nice hostel ! Would really recommend it. The staff was amazing. They showed us the entire hostel and told us where the nice places where around town. We did the pub crawl which is free and it was reallllly nice ! The kitchen is kind of dirty though, but overall a great hostel !


There are many staff members, they speak English, but they are not always knowledgeable about tourist places and travel arrangements. They do try to help though. The kitchen is small but OK. It is heavily used by staff dinner cooking, so not so convenient to use. Location is great.


The hostel was located in a very nice place, close to the Main square where was a Folklore festival by than. I absolutely enjoyed staying there and its friendly and all the time smiling staff. The only disadvantage of the hostel is that the toilet are together in the bath room, so sometimes there was a queue.


There is no Wifi in the rooms.


Really great staff. Nice rooms, lovely atmosphere.


Great, recommended and I like the uniquely design of the hostel, but for the first time comer need to pay more attention on their signboard which is hang it beside the Thai massage shop.


Perfect location for a low price! The staff didn't seem very professional, but was nice enough. The kitchen wasn't very well-equipped and the common room wasn't very spacious. Still a good stay for a short break in Bratislava.


Great hostel! Loved the place


Wild Elephants is easily the most central hostel in Bratislava, and probably the most personal too. It's fairly intimate, so it's easy to meet guests, and the staff will often lead you to a few local pubs - a refreshing change from organised bar crawls. The facilities are a little on the basic side, although it's still quite a new hostel. A few minor changes, like installing beside lights and providing bigger towels, could change this from a good hostel to a great one. Keep up the good work.


One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. This place really is run by travellers for travellers, which gives it an awesome vibe. The art on the walls is just phenomenal! I would come back to Bratislava just to stay here again! :)


This should be the next location for the next Hostel sequel. In a good way. Old building, no carpet, random writing on the walls and the staff, the staff are volunteers - they're a good fun but very unorganized and not so well equipped for this kid of stuff. Guys all you need is a bed anyway because Bratislava is a good place to have fun. This hostel will do. It's a bit grungy and if you ever need a Thai massage, there's a massage place in the lower lever ;) Bonne chance!


Super comfy mattress! Extremely large rooms, great atmosphere and staff were just great and always willing to help. Kitchen available too and free wifi. Not many showers or toilets but never seemed to be a large queue. Overall, one of our favourites in Europe.


Awesome hostel right in the center of Bratislava with friendly staff and nice atmosphere. Excellent value for money and one of the coolest hostels I've ever been to.


A really great hostel! The style is a little bit alternative than the usual hostels, but it is very attractive! The people are really kind, open minded and will help you with everything. They provide you the information you need and they even took us out for a pubcrawl! Next to this, the location is perfect!

This hostel is wonderful! I don't know what to say about the staff, they are really friendly travelers!!! I spent quality time with you! The hostel is simple, hyper well located. Kitchen, cleaning done daily, has lockers, but without access key. I see you around the world (chicken balls)!


Really weird place, but awesome. Super helpful staff... However the place is reeeeally hard to find.


The place felt really spacious and I liked the location in the middle of the old town. Great vibes and fun staff who took us on a night out.


Hostel situated right in the middle of old town, so it's close to most major attractions. Rooms are well-ventilated and kitchens are well-equipped in case you want to cook.
