I stayed in Blues hostel where I had great time the staff was wonderfull specially the Irish girl that provide me very good information about Bratislava.The hostel has very good atmosphere with travellers and very good commun area that you could interact with everyone.The only bad thing it was that the check out was a little bit early that I expected but i highly suggest this hostel in Europe.Thank you so much Blues Hostel for the great stance I had in Bratislava
We had a great stay. Very friendly and helpfull staff.
Best hostel we have stayed at so far!! Such nice rooms really friendly staff really nice vibe. Fantastic location !!!! Can't wait to go back! And can't say anything bad about it.
Very good hostel except no aircon so got quite hot in summer. Recommend it though
Had a great stay, very very good staff who helped us a lot in exploring the city. Great atmosphere in the bar for meeting fellow travellers, live music cheap beer etc. If you are going to Bratislava, STAY in hostel blues for sure.
We stayed at the hostel during a very hot period (39C). In the rooms airco would have been welcome, but we understands that this are exceptional circumstances. The reception/bar had airco,so we could go there to cool down. Despite of the hot weather, we enjoyed our stay at Hostel Blues!
8 bed mixed dorm was cramped, dirty and insecure. Our last night, someone managed to get into our dorm and we caught him in our room looking through our belongings at 5 am. When I mentioned it to staff the following morning, no one appeared interested in following it up. The ratio of guys to girls was 5:1, and the pub crawl had little atmosphere. Much better value for money around. Would not stay again.

Good Value hotel with a bar and common room and kitchen. Bedrooms are secure with lockers and room keys. Sheets are provided but no towels. No air conditioning in the rooms, there is a fan but it didn't do much in the August heat and it was a hot night. Bathroom facilities average. Very noisy outside with passing trams and church bells. Only a short walk from town which in the daylight is easy, but I felt a bit unsafe walking back alone at night and caught a taxi from the city centre.
Great hostel, nice staff and funny people in there!
Great place to stay. The staff make you feel welcome as soon as you walk through the door. Hard to not people and enjoy the city while staying at this hostel.
A little far away from the town center given the size of the city, but the staff and common areas really make this hostel. I had a great stay and will definitely return! No air conditioning made it hot, but what can you expect.
Great hostel, but seriously needs some fans in the dorm. Incredibly hot! Even though Bratislava was going through unusually hot weather, in normal summer heat the dorms still would have been unpleasant.
Loved my stay- all members of staff were extremely friendly and knowledgeable in whats going on in the city. The hostel common room was also the perfect place to make friends.
We really liked it at Hostel Blues and the staff were amazing. The only flaw is that there were a lot of outside noises in our room, very loud sounds from the tram and bells ringing in a church nearby very loudly too.

Great staff, great times! Wish they had aircon in the rooms as very warm at night, little fan tried hard though!
Cannot fault this place or the city! Wifi and facilities are awesome and it's clean. The only annoying thing we found was the Orange wristband they make you wear however this came in useful when we got a discount at a local restaurant (Slovak pub) which I couldn't recommend more. Take the pub crawl which picks up and leave at around 10 each night... We managed 6 pints in the one hour of free beer haha
24 hour large common room. Sometimes with live music. Staff was very nice and extremely helpful. Did have a power outage the last night I was there.
Group of three guys interrailing. We ended up getting a private room for three, (the Amsterdam room) which was very similar in price to a dorm room and so so worth it. Comfortable beds, nice large and clean ensuite bathroom. Staff were really helpful and gave us a great lost of places to eat and drink and things to see, cheap beers at reception. Decent washing machine facilities as well. Only about 15/20 minute walk from the main station. Really good place.
Really good central location, easy walk to all the main places! Staff were very helpful and had lots of information and lists of good local places to eat/ drink etc. which was great! We only stayed one night and the room was pretty noisy with the tram outside the window, in fairness we had the windows wide open because it was so hot so maybe this wouldn't be an issue another time of year!
