Had a stopover in Bratislava so I stayed at Hostel Blues. It's located 10 minutes walk from the bar district of Bratislava. But they do have a fun little bar onsite with cheap prices. Showers and toilets were located ensuite for my 6 bed room which is always a good perk. Lockers located in the rooms and the hostel even gives you padlocks. I wish it was located closer to the bus/train stations and the main square. But everything else was top notch
Very good hostel except no aircon so got quite hot in summer. Recommend it though
This was an amazing hostel! I met a bunch of cool people and the atmosphere was great. Would definitely stay here if I ever visit Bratislava again, although there is not very much to do in the city itself.
Great staff, location, price, common area, kitchen. They need more fans or AC's in the summer. Was a sauna. The one fan we had was useless.
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.
This hostel is great for people who travel alone. They have a great common room with cool music and a nice bar. The only disadvantage was that in my room on the 5th floor we had a van but it didn't work one bit. So I woke up really sweaty! Other than that a great stay! Definitly recommend it!
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.

Hostel was amazing. Definetly stay here if you can get a chance. As soon as I got there, got me to relax and have a beer in the chillzone. Great staff, gave me great advice of the city. Having a blues band the one night was a nice touch.
Great staff, great times! Wish they had aircon in the rooms as very warm at night, little fan tried hard though!
Staff here are great. The rooms and facilities are ok.
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.
