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.
nice hostel but old building. no air conditioning, no way to cover the windows in the morning.
We only stayed here for one night, but wished we stayed longer! The staff were amazing, very welcoming and helpful. We were given lots of information about how to make the best of our trip and where all the sights were! Rooms were very comfortable and very clean! Would reccomend this hostel to anyone staying in Bratislava and can't wait to return!
It was a little hot in the hostel but apart from that it was perfect!
This hostel was quite convenient but it was very regimented - our stay wasn't too relaxing. Atmosphere wass flat. Rooms were boiling hot. On the plus side, late night staff were very friendly and accommodating
The staff here are amazing. Friendly and informative. The rooms were spotless and comfortable. I wouldn't recommend staying in 'Moscow' only because it's on the 1 st floor, and the street noise is quite loud in the morning. Loved that they have do-it-yourself laundry facilities. Overall I'd definitely stay there again.
Good lively hostel in a good location. One for the younger crowd.
The Hostel have a great staff. The staff girls are friendly, beautiful and always available with a smile on his face. I stayed a night in which it was 40 degrees in the summer and there was only one broken fan in which the driver did not rotate, the night was terrible.
good hostel, great staff, well located... i didn't like that fact that they gave us the worst possible room for 6 people right in front of the church bell that sounds every 15 minutes, plus the summer heat and 1 ventilator in the room makes it a perfect receipt to be awake all night long even if you're wasted... besides that the hostel is great place with great atmosphere and cool staff... but never go to that room ;)
In terms of the essentials (facilities, cleanliness etc.) this was not a bad hostel at all, while the staff were incredibly friendly and easy to talk to. However, there was almost no atmosphere in the place due to its size and the high proportion of groups staying there. Not at all worthwhile if you are seeking a true hostel experience.
I had a great stay at Hostel Blues. I loved that they posted music performances and things to do each day - really helped add to my experience in Bratislava.
The hostel was very nice and the staff were fantastic. I would suggest for security reasons you have a key for the actual room as when you enter for example one block of rooms you could enter all rooms. Also more showers and toilets should be provided.

Lovely hostel with excellent staff and friendly atmosphere. Lockers and swipe card access for rooms. Kitchen was good but a bit small for the amount of guests ( it was Saturday night and very full). A great location and staff extremely helpful with maps, what to do and what to eat in Bratislava. Internet was very slow (unusable) at times. Highly recommend.
Really great place to stay if you can afford it :) awesome bar area and a nice chill out room as well.. Wifi is quite slow though, but i guess that's the only thing i can think of so that's not too bad, ey?
Perfect location for this hostel which has a very helpful staff. You feel at home at the moment you cross the doorstep. The room was spacious and clean, the bathroom was fine enough.
Although the staff were great I found the whole experience quite impersonal - Its a big hostel with many floors and even though there was a party on while I was there I found it lacked a bit of atmosphere owing to its size and layout so a bit of a let-down for a solo traveller. Perfect location though.
Staff was wonderful and the discounts for city tours etc is really good. They could use more bathrooms.
This was a very good hostel. The staff is a bit over enthusiastic but its very helpful to find some good food and locations in the city. If you are there try the pub-crawl especially the club at the end is good fun.
The staffs make the difference. They haven't air conditioner, so if you are planning to go on summer, be prepared! It's really hot.
Staff were very friendly and helpful!
