downtown backpackers is a fantastic hostel! close to the center, nice kitchen, friendly and helpful staff and a nice atmosphere for meeting new people!
Great location that is easy to find from the main train station. I really enjoyed having the bar and restaurant here that makes for a nice way to start or unwind your time while here in Bratislava. My only complaint would be the lack of wall outlets for charging my phone...had to share a power strip with other bunk mates that didn't seem to reach to all the beds.
The location is excellent, close of all, the staff is friendly, there is a pub in the hostel very charm
not sure how this hostel has such good ratings. I found the staff cold and unfriendly, the common areas are dark and unused so it's hard to meet people and the shower is a dribble. also loud music is played so if you want an early night this isn't the place for you!
Good location, staff really helpful and nice. Restaurant on ground floor good for food and drinks.
I was here on a Friday night and had a stressful time because drunk guys were harassing women in the hostel. The staff were great and really helpful (and moved me immediately when I asked to change rooms because I didn't feel safe with the guys who were in there). The building is really old and could do with some upgrades (e.g. automatically locking doors) and the wifi signal was poor, but location is good and bar/restaurant cheap. Good hostel, but I wouldn't stay here again on a weekend.
I was surprise how great was this hostel for this price. I would recommend it to anyone , who would like to know new people and not to spend much money for accommodation. Hostel have 24 reception and bar so you don't really need to go out, if you want to taste great Slovak beer.
staff at reception were very nice and professional, rooms are clean and comfortable; but the whole hostel is too dark, very noisy, and staff in the bar are not very friendly
The staff was great, especially Bianca at the front desk. The food was good, tho breakfast is not served until 8:30. There was a problem with the latch on our private room so that it would not latch without locking, and the door would swing open unless locked. The slot for the key had sharp edges which could cut you when you tried to use the key! They had a washing machine available for free (thank you). We slept well except Sunday at 4AM when a very loud fight occurred in the dorm.
This place is nice and has a bar downstairs. You wear a wristband in order for the staff to know you are staying there, which I thought was good. The locks on the doors were tricky, the bathrooms small, but overall decent place. Hard to meet people unless you have others in your room who are friendly. walking distance to everything, nice kitchen with most utensils needed. Overall I would recommend and good value for price
Clean and comfortable beds, amazing food and great staff. Sorry about the party that got out of Hand in the common room that other night.
Awesome hostel!!! (Blew the Patio Hostel out of the water.) The staff was super friendly and helpful. It was nice and quiet at night, no crazy ruckus. Super convenient having a bar and restaurant downstairs. Discount on food and a free shot of the national liquor--can't go wrong! Cute t-shirts for sale. Would recommend BPH any day! Definitely staying here whenever I go to Bratislava :)
Really nice hostel. Its a bit pricy compared to other hostels around europe. The atmosphere is nice and the hostel is noce as well with a very nice common area. The staff was good in general but the poeople working in the bar kept forgeting my food and bill. Overall nice expiience
Amazing time at Downtown Backpackers in Bratislava! We loved it here- amazing charm, nice bar, great rooms. And Bianca at the front desk was incredibly helpful and funny! We had a great time here in this cozy hostel!

I really like this hostel, the staff was very kind and helpful, the location was great, and they have a very good restaurant in the hostel. I didn't have any trouble and I do recommend it.
Although I only lodged there for one evening, it was so comfortable that I felt as though I were in my own home. The common area, with a large and fluffy sofa as well as a flat screen television, attached to a full kitchen are very inviting for anyone who wants to lounge - basically all I do.
All was excellent!! Staff and location awesome :)

VERY WELL, EXCELLENT STAFF. I recommend
Quirky hostel in the old town - everything is within walking distance. Brilliant location. The hostel bar is very cheap and does lovely food. Overall enjoyed our stay and would recommend to others.
