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.

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

it was just a strange place but the bed was clean and had hot water so for 1 night was ok. I had the feeling that nobody cares about the hostel...

Our stay in Pula was made perfect by the super cool couple renting the apartment. They offered to take us around Pula in their minivan and shower us the best places to see and go in the city. The apartment was well equiped and had a lovely garden with BBQ which was great for evenings! Really recommend this place:))

In a decent location and not a lot of noise on the 2nd floor. Kitchen facilities were good clean. Look past the outside and common area (namely the lift area).

Great location, right in the city. The owner gave us a map and basically planned our entire weekend for us. He was very friendly. Hostel was clean and definitely had enough space. It was a great value for the price. I would only note that you should make sure to bring a towel, as there were none provided. But everything was quite good in this hostel.
