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.

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.

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.

Hi thank you! We can be party hostel as well ! :) It depends on what kind of guest we have at the moment. Sometimes it is quiet and relaxing and sometimes it is loud and wild :)

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.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi, thank you! We're glad you're keeping coming back :) It is true that breakfast use to be for free, but it was very simple breakfast and our guests were not very happy abut it, so we prepared a breakfast menu - 10 different types, very nice and rich meals for nice prices. Not to mention that you have 10 % discount for everything you buy at the restaurant.

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.

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

Owner Comment (Hide)
We are so happy for the fact that you like the historical building! We love it too :) And printing out the boarding passes is a sure thing! Hope to see you again :)

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

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi, we apologize for the wifi connection from the other day, but we fixed that as soon as possible.. About the breakfast - it's not possible to include them to the room price, because we have 10 different types of breakfast with different prices and it's big and really delicious. As our guests you have 10 % discount for everything you'll buy at the hostel restaurant.
