What can I say about the rated nº1 hostel in Slovakia in 2009, 2010 & 2012? It totally deserves its position. Big hostel so you can meet lot of people if you're travelling alone (or in small group), pretty rooms, clean, silent, and, most important, enjoyable staff, young and nice (when talking about big hostels it's hard to find good staff, but you do find at this hostel). It's pretty expensive (17€ plus taxes) but totally worths its value. I don't regretspending the money on this hostel.
Great location, near the center and also the busstation. The staff was really friendly and helpful. They explained everything, included tips where to eat, or to have a coffee. Cleans and wide romms! I definitely recommend this hostel!
The hostel is ok, good location, nice bar, staff attentive. In my room (London C) the bathroom could better. It was outside, so altought it was supposed to be exclusive for my room, the others rooms could use it.

If you plan to visit Bratislava, you definitely need to stay at Hostel Blues. It's the best and coolest hostel that I ever stayed. Everything was perfect.
I've been travelling for 11 years - been to 48 countries and more hostels than I can ever remember - and this was one of the BEST hostels I have ever stayed in- incredible staff, fun atmosphere and cool travellers!!!
It's a nice hostel and the stuff is very friendly and helpfull. The hostel is like a block with seperate apartments, it's nice and easily you'll meet with other travelers! It is not in the city center, but bratislava is very small, and you will reach the city center in less than 5min walk! Oh! Yes! The worst is the noise because of the tram running in the main street infront the hostel!
No Breakfast provided Provide a ceiling fan for summer heat
I went on a Sunday/Monday...felt really bad for the staff because there was a massive group of British 18 year olds being incredibly rude SO SORRY you guys had to deal with them. Staff were great. Bed was comfy. Just think it was a little overpriced for what it was.
Hostel is organized quite well and the staff was really nice, but the location of the hostel is not really good. Walking distances are quite fine, but the windows of the dorms are facing a main street, including a tram line. So this fact and only a small vent in the room didn't leave much room for sleep. Either you sweat or wake up constantly, when a tram comes or some noisy car.
Staff were very helpful with anything you needed to know about Bratislava and especially the best way to transit to your next city. Not much vibe but can't really fault anything about this hostel
Great hostel. Amazingly helpful and friendly staff, they are very genuine. Showers weren't the cleanest I've seen in my travels, but It wasn't a problem. Great location (Bratislava is pretty small anyway). On that note you can see this place in one day, we stayed a single night, and still felt like we had seen everything when we left the following morning. Definite recommend.
Wow, what a nice hostel. I felt immediately at home after the very warm and friendly welcome by the two female staff members that were working on the 17th of August. And also the rest of the staff was very friendly. They all gave me wonderful tips, took good care of the security and really brought a smile to my face every time I had a question. Thank you! The hostel is very close (walking distance) from a supermarket and the centre. Loved that there were no bunk beds in the women only room :).
The hostel blues was in a great location and was very clean. Only complaints were it was boiling in the night and staff were very slow at dealing with customers. We waited over 30mins for service without a free drink - after a five hour train ride, we weren't pleased.
Awesome atmosphere in the common areas and the staff are always willing to help in any way.
Lovely hostel at a great location. very helpful staff. the common room and kitchen are cozy and clean. we stayed in a four bed dormitory and it was beautiful, very clean and comfortable. highly recommended place to stay when visiting bratislava.
Great room, very comfortable and clean. And a kitchen to cook; and around the corner a huge supermarket! Very friendly staff. Only internet is to slow!
Good hostel within a 5-10 minute walk from the old town. Cheap drinks at the bar and friendly staff. Would stay here again.
I loved that they gave me a very extensive look at the city and helped me with a map when I arrived. The beds were okay but there could be more bathrooms. The kitchen was well equiped and rather clean. Since it is a big hostel I wad missing a little bit of the atmosphere.
