This was a good hostel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The kitchen facilities were good and there was a nice communal garden with a bar. It is right next to the main station and about 10-15 minutes' walk from the city centre. Some things could have been better - there were not enough shared bathrooms which meant that queues often formed. Some of the other guests were very loud during the night and the staff did not tell them to be quiet.
Easy to find from the train station, really friendly staff, nice rooms and great outdoor area
Only stayed one night, got in at midnight and there was a party going on in the bar, we went straight to bed like cool kids and the noise didn't disturb at all. Made use of the kitchen and free washing/drying which was super useful. Staff lovely and helpful when we wanted to store bags for the day. Only problem was that beds were slightly damp so not the best to sleep in.
Not enough washrooms and they were not clean! Everything else was okay. Staff were helpful!
Good hostel, little walk from the centre, but not a problem if you plan your days. Nice bar/chill area at the back of the hostel/ Would stay again!
Really nice hostel, with great atmosphere especially in the garden outside. the breakfast is cheap and really good. The bar downstairs may need better ventilation considering smoking is allowed indoors. The rooms were clean and airy. I will definitely recommend
Hugely enjoyed our stay here. Staff were friendly, helpful and always on hand. Bathroom was large and well equipped and our room was very comfy. The kitchen was excellent and better equipped than my own house! Even came with a beach bar! Would definitely return, favourite hostel we stayed in during our tour of Europe.
Worth going to just for the Hostel themed bar area in the basement. Staff could not have been more helpful and the country themed rooms were ace. Not very modern bathrooms but not a problem as the place has charm.
The hostel was really Close to the trainstation, but not that Close to the old Town.
Stayed for two nights at hostel possonium. The hostel is located within a 10 minute walk from the station which is great! However, there isn't a lot else around that area - a street of shops. It takes about 20 minutes to get to the old town, and then if you want to hit the main tourist sites it's a bit longer than that. Staff were always polite and helpful! The bar was very cool. Room was not too bad. If you are visiting bratislava, come at the weekend. Nlife is poor during the week.
Nice place to Stay. Really close to the Train Station. 15-20 minutes walk from Downtown. nice terrace Breakfast is a little bit expensive.
Excellent terrace, the only shame that it closed at 10 PM, but I guess that cannot really be changed (nighttime and all). Some of the staff could've been a little more friendly. The bed I slept on was very stiff and not very comfortable, by my 4th night there I literally woke up with a sore back. Other than this, I have no other complaints for an otherwise great hostel in a great location and for a reasonable price. The terrace ruled!
near train station, am alone in 8 bedded room.seems one of the receptionist not patience in answering my question when I check in around 18:30. he asked me to ask the receptionist next day.
If you don't stay here, then you are truly missing out! We ended up extended our reservation two nights in Bratislava because this hostel was AMAZING!! Out of 14 hostels on our trip, this one was our absolute favorite!! PARTY PARTY PARTY and also very relaxing!!
One of the best hostels where I have ever been to. Amazing helpful staff and incredible garden. I would like to stay longer, maybe next time...

Hostel Possonium is a great student & backpackers hostel. I was a bit unlucky not to be there during peak season and it was a bit empty, but otherwise it is really easy to have a good time. They have a bar, a garden, table soccer, lockers are included in the price and the staff were super nice! Would definitely recommend it to anyone in Bratislava!
I spent two days in the hostel. It was in cool location (close to Bratislava old town which is wonderful), the room was nice, the staff was smily and helpful. All in all i enjoyed my stay a lot, it think for the price it is really great what you get. (And I liked the garden with the chillout bar) :)

It was good, we had a good time in the bar from the hostel. Only bad point there was only one bathroom for a lot of people like 2-3 dorms room
Bunk bed creak and made falling asleep more difficult. On the other hand Brazil room should be ventilated, because the rooms was stinky. Having breakfast in the garden was very lovely. Stuff was very nice.
I feel like this hostel used to have a heyday but those days are passed. Everything was just a bit average and we were shown to the wrong room first. I was able to shower before checking in after a 30hr transit which was good, and were able to store our bags. TV is not worth watching with the reception. There was no hot water one morning
