Absolutely not recommended! Someone on the first night robbed us. Very insecure place. There are no cameras, after midnight there is no one with the service, very easy to open even locked the door. In addition, it is dirt. DO NOT RECOMMEND!

The location is the only one positive thing, because the hostel is situated in a very old building and all electrical components doesn't work, the kitchen is so terrifying that we prefer don't use it! Everything is old and dirty! Then there is always a very bad smell in the air. Please chose another place!1

the bed broke when sat on and the shower didn't lock- luckily we weren't there for long, really noisy at night too!

Need to supply your own locks for the lockers. Generally very clean, there's a kitchen, the building it's in is pretty scary-looking (but perfectly safe!). Staff speak excellent english and are very helpful, and it's only a 2 minute walk from the old town, so very well located. Supermarkets nearby.

You get what you pay for and nothing more. Only good thing to say about it is the location. Within walking distance from the train station and close to the old town, the Castle and super markets. Creepy staircase and nasty bathroom. Our advise: use more money on your hostel/hotel in Bratislava.

The door of the bathroom does not close, please put curtains in the rooms.

Very good location

I had a single private room which had a nice double bed and some natural light, but other than that it was pretty unremarkable. The door handle in my room was broken and there wasn't a safe. The toilet/bathroom facilities were pretty clean, but a bit smelly. Staff weren't there when I arrived and weren't too forthcoming with help. It's cheap and central, but don't expect much for the rest.

This place was taken from a horro movie. it was dusty, the bathroom didn't work and the location was not good. Nevertheless, if you are planning to stay only one night i think you will survive as i did. For the money you pay, you will get the correspondent value.

Checked out before the first night due to unacceptable safety and appearance of the property. Completely mislead by the website and extortionate in terms of price. Wouldn't say it was worth half of what we paid.

Good hostel, we even went back and booked an extra night! The guy on reception was very friendly and helpful. Hostel itself was pretty basic but value for money and a good stay.

The hostel is good for a one night. The localisation is perfect. Bathroom was clean and the rooms are big. One of disadvantages is that reception doesn't work 24 hours, so when you come to Bratislava early you must wait.

Great location and cheap price. As a couple we stayed in a double room, which was very spacious but a bit ricketty and run down. Building seems very run down and poorly maintained, but despite dodgy appearance we had no security/safety issues. Not glamorous at all, but works if you're on a budget.

The toilets were not great, a lot of the time it smelt like something had crawled in there and died. The kitchen facilities were good, and we had huge lockers in our room that fit our backpacks. Staff were nice, she gave us padlocks for our lockers and helped us out with timings of tours etc.. location was excellent, we didn't spend any money on public transport at all:it was all in short walking distance. A good place to stay for a place to sleep for one night but I don't recommend any longer
