The staff were very nice and helpful. Excellent location right beside the old town as walking distance from the bus station.
We had a great stay here, although unfortunately only for a very short time. It was only about 15 minutes walk from the Bus stop and is excellently located next to old town where most things are. Our rooms were very clean and tidy and we enjoyed the garden terrace as well. Michael even woke up at 4 am to show us where to get the taxi, amazing!! Thankyou very much for having us and we hope you enjoyed the little gift as well! Love Aseem and Sarah
Igor was extremely helpful!! The only heads up is the showers. There are 3 in a single shared space, separated by curtains that dont necessarily stay in place.
Great hostel. The owner was so helpful during our stay, and he has beautiful eyes. Wifi is great in the rooms and hallway. The whole was clean and cleaned daily. Good location close to old town and to many shops. Would definitely stay again.
Hostel was good, not much going on, but that was because it was a national holiday in Bratislava whilst we were there. The free walking tour the hostel advertises was very good and interesting however the pub crawl was rubbish. We were taken to 3 average bars and clubs and left on the other side of the city with no instruction how to get home. Overall we enjoyed the city and the hostel was good. But avoid the pub crawl.
Stayed in a twin room, which was clean and comfortable. The location was great, with a short walk to tourist attractions, lots of food and drinking options right on your doorstep, and easy access to the train station and airport etc. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. The facilities were overall great, the exception being the showers which were (most unfortunately) truly horrid; the ladies had 3 communal showers, only 1 worked, with no tap for temperature regulation?
You could think about improving your room ventilation system. In the summer when you close the window it gets really hot in the room and when you open it the trams wake you up every time they go by.

This is my favorite hostel so far. This could be just because I am so enamored by Bratislava in general, and the receptionist Igor. The location is very central, everything is walking distance. Good internet connection. Snacks for sale all the time. Cool lighting creates a relaxing atmosphere. Free in-room lockers for your stuff while you go out. I LOVE BRATISLAVA!!! Thank you Hostel Mansard.
It was clean quiet and nice hostel. Good location too. The owner was very kind. I will definitely come back here.
We only stayed here for 1 night on our tour of Europe. One night in Bratislava was sufficient, as it was more like a small town, but we loved it. Everyone was really friendly and made an effort (a nice change compared so some neighbouring places!). The hostel was just what we needed: all facilities, free tea/coffee, laundry, kitchen etc. Staff great. Negatives: Room was too hot and there was no fan - it wasn't the hostel's fault that it was a 38c heatwave tho! Couldn't adjust temp on showers.
First of all, Igor is a real star! His warm greeting and helpful spirit really made us feel welcome right from the beginning. He's really the perfect host. We stayed in a twin room and it was impeccable - very clean and fresh. The location is also great and we loved the terrace where we could have our breakfast every morning. The temperature of the water in the showers can be improved as it was freezing during our stay.
Good hostel with friendly staff. The owner igor is extremely helpful. Showers weren't the best but besides that it was great. Would stay again.
We stayed two nights here and the atmosphere of the hostel was nice but you didn't really have an common area. There was one outside, but when we were there it was raining outside so nobody used it. The host, Igor, was really nice and helpfull and could tell us a lot about the city and where to go. The dorms and beds were very nice and also very clean. But the showers.. they were terrible. You don't have any privacy at all there because they work with (not so big) shower curtains...
Great Hostel ! Nice place to stay : Igor is really nice and helpful, it gave us helpful advices and he upgraded us from the common dorms to a private room ! We've got also a free drink at arrival, and the fre tea/coffee is cool :) Also great music, nice terrasse. Everything was clean. But it was so hot during our stay and the room under the roof needs really fresh air in summer ! Anyway thanks for the great stay !
Mansard is a great place to be. The staff was absolutely helpful and friendly and Igor is an amazing host (thanks again for the nice talk and all the things about Bratislava you told me, I will definitely visit you if I`ll come back). The Atmosphere was great and the location is also very good. The bathrooms are a bit small, but it was okay athough the hostel was fully booked. I definitely recommend Hostel Mansard!

It was very warm in Bratislava and so was our room. Woke up medium rare looking forward to a cold shower but it's sensor-activated and has no way of adjusting temperature. Its schizophrenic nature, however, makes sure you get a try of all possible ones. My girlfriend complained about girl's toilet cleanliness, men's was ok. They charge for towels and keeping bags after checkout. Great hostel, though, negatives are just minor circumstantial nuisances. Staff is kind and location very convenient.
Welcoming staff, very clean, great location and great value for the price, I definitely recommand it
They were locking the balcony after 11 p.m at this is really strange.No way to chill with people in hostel after this hours.

Igor, the owner of the hostel, is so nice and such a sweet person! The first steps I took inside the hostel, I immediately felt very welcomed! Igor was very friendly and gave wonderful tips about the city, where to go, what to do, etc.. Super nice! Hostel itself was quite nice, with interesting atmosphere! Only minus is that the internet was very slow, and at a times didn't work at all! Room was nice, beds are comfortable. I slept very well during my whole stay. Thank you for your kindness.
