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.
This was a great hostel at a perfect location. A block and a half way and you are in the historic city center. The 93 bus and several other buses stopped several yards from the hostel, good enough to take to Most SNP or the train station. The rooms have names correlating famous artists. Restaurant had delicious food and it right in the lobby, in case you want a quick bite and brew for a great price. Staff was also friendly and helpful. The only issue I had was the door and locker door.
Everything worked just fine. Our twin room was really spacious and nice. Showers worked ok and were clean enough. Walls sounded a bit thin but we traveled during a low season so it was quiet. Nice common room and bar/restaurant downstairs were a nice addition.

Great place to crash, love the themed rooms.
It's a great place with good people. The hostel is verry well located ! It's about 5 minutes of walk from the old city ! Also, it's quiet for an hostel with a bar in it.
Great staff and a nice restaurant/bar section. Low prices !
An awesome hostel if you just want a relaxed and quiet time and aren't fussed about partying. By no means a party hostel so if that's what you're into you may want to look elsewhere. The hostel has a really good chilled atmosphere, with live jazz downstairs on some nights, and not your typical backpackers bar- it appears to be a local haunt as well. The free washing is a great thought, and its location is great, right next to the old quarter.
I have stayed in this hostel on three previous occasions and really like it. This was my first stay for a couple of years and it remains a friendly, well equiped hostel. Cleanliness is perfect; staff helpful; it is peaceful at night, with no noise from the bar downstairs. breakfast which used to be free is now charged for.
We were welcomed with a free bratislava an shot voucher which was nice, and whenever we had any questions the staff were very accommodating. The showers were a bit of a let down as the water jets spray just about any direction but down so it's hard to shower properly. The room decoration wasn't great for a 'Warhol room' however the beds were comfy enough. Good stay in Brat.
Great bar with live music. I wish the bar was bigger!
Frendly and helpfull staff, good facilities, excellent location, big like for artistic grafiti on the walls... :D
I really enjoyed my stay and I will come back for sure.
Most characteristic hostel I have ever stayed in, the building is beautiful. Staff were kind enough to print my boarding pass.. (Super grateful for that) And a free shot when you arrive is just what you need after travelling! Thanks
Going back to Bratislava one day just to stay in this very hostel! Great atmosphere: the rooms are cosy and the bar is brown and the live music is great. Met some very cool people as well. I loved it :)
perfect hostel! only the door lock of our room (mucha) should be repaired: the only way to close the door is to lock it with the key otherwise the door stays open...
+ Good location + Good and big lockers for you backpack + Wash machine for free - Really bad WiFi connection - No elevator - Breakfast not included
