Really cool and happening hostel, The reception/ bar is really cool. The cheapest bar I have ever been to!!! Big comfortable rooms that do not get too hot at night. Decent location about 300 meters from old town bratislava.
I very enjoyed the stay in Hostel Blues. All persons in the reception were genuine angels, being very helpful and warm-hearted. My room and the facilities were great.
Had the best time there! Helena at the reception, is GREAT, and has a lot of nice recommendations. It's within walking distance to basically everywhere. The common room has great atmosphere, and even though I was alone, I met a lot of cool people just hanging around there. we would recommend it.
Liked it very much, near the city center, walking distance, very good atmosphere and the staff were execelent, really very good giving indications, of everything. Loved it. wiil go back
The location was great. I loved the kitchen and the common areas. The staff was more than helpful. Sometimes there was a wait for the bathrooms.
Nothing bad to say about the hostel. Great staff. They have their own bar (whitch has a great atmosphere). clean and in a great location (dead center of the city) . I would defenitely recomend this hostel!
This most excellent staff team, cheered along by the indefatigable Helena, keeps the atmosphere conviivial. One evening a 3 piece blues set appeared. Everyone seemed to enjoy the music. The bar at reception works well and builds on the atmosphere. The kitchen offerings are meagre though: with no mugs, glasses nor tea and coffee on offer. You can have a nice but pricey coffee at the bar/reception. It helps if you stand holding down the button of the one small kitchen kettle as it boils!
The staff were nothing short of OUTSTANDING! They made my stay a delight their local knowledge was extremely helpful.
I only stayed here one day but the hostel was excellent. The location is perfect for Bratislava, very central to everything. The staff took their time in explaining to me the best places to visit, and I met a lot of nice people in the common room area. The security is good, and even though a lot of the rooms are on upper floors, there is an elevator. The shower for my dorm was great, and the bathroom was in the room but separated. Highly recommend if travelling to Bratislava.
Good central location good beds and plenty of space in room to chill. The kitchen lounge and bar were all clean and great.
If you are staying in Bratislava,you really have to stay here! Staff are very friendly and accommodating! I only stayed for one night but I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Everybody is so friendly and you'll instantly make friends!
Hostel Blues is one of the best places I've stayed! It's close to the old city and most of the sights, and it's clean and spacious. The staff were really great and helpful, and have loads of knowledge about the city they're happy to share! It also has a very friendly atmosphere - I met tonnes of awesome people hanging out in the common spaces. I wound up extending my stay, and I would definitely go back!
My first stop on my trip and I did not know what to expect from Slovakia. Hostel Blues, a big hostel but still able to keep it "small" in terms of making people interact and able to meet others. The rooms quite boring, but you only sleep there! Do the free walking tour while here, very interesting and good value for the money.
I have being there alone and it was great! Is very tidy, the staff very good and met so great people! very happy
The staff were extremely friendly and the hostel was very clean. It had a great kitchen and we highly recommend the Slovakian cooking lesson with Paula. Thanks guys!
Hostel Blues is in a great location. It is easy walking distance to the central historic district of Bratislava. My daughter and I shared a private apartment. The room was clean and comfortable and had a balcony with a wonderful view of the city. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Really nice hostel, view of the castle. Friendly staff, good common areas.
Soundproof the private rooms or put an out of order sign on the toilet next to the private room. As it's annoying when you think somebody is trying to come into your room every time the door is opened to the toilet. Other than that no problem

Oh man.. For hostels I've ever stayed, this is definetly one of the greatest ever. The staff is unbelievable! In a good sense, of course. The most friendliest and liveliest staff Iäve ever come to a cross with. Didn't matter who was behind the counter in the morning, it was always a pleasure to talk with them.
Good, comfortable and affordable, good location ... but not very social atmosphere.. not a party hostel.. which is ok because they dont claim to be one.
