Easy to find and a brilliant location. Kitchen is one of the best equipped kitchens I've seen in hostels. Rooms seem small but you have your own private and lockable locker, that are quite big so that's useful.
Clean, comfortable hostel, nice outside area, even nicer bar! Lovely man behind reception, really great, gave us loads of suggestions of things to do and was always happy to help!
NEVER AGAIN! Location great but...I didn't know about extra charge if I'm not a student - guy at reception told me about it when I came. Room was dirty, smell was horrible, awful. There was no air conditioning and when the other guests opened the window during the night, a lot of noise came in so I couldn't sleep. In my locker were someone clothes, bed was uncomfortable, old mattress and everything was dirty.

The hostel was overall quite dirty and the beds not super comfortable. They were very helpful switching room to help us avoid a particularly loud roommate. The welcome drink was nice and the basement was fun.
Only stayed one night but was a great hostel to kick back at. The staff were excellent, friendly and very helpful. Good beds and showers. Good beer at the bar and cheap as well. The cats in the outdoor bar area are a fun addition and are very cheeky! Great place to stay.
Doors had to be manually locked before leaving the room each time. Not very modern.
THE BEST HOSTEL I HAVE EVER BEEN IN MY LIFE, ROOM EXTRA CLEAN, BEDS VERY COMFORTABLE, STAFF WELL TRAINED..JUST THE GUY WHOM IS WORKING IN THE BAR OUTSIDE SHOULD SMILE MORE..BUT DEFINETLY I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS HOSTEL TO EVERYONE
Very polite staff, welcome drink included, great atmosphere and the downstairs bar, ambiented in the movie "hostel" is just amazing. Beer from 1,2€ !! The hostel is quite near the tren station, and a 20 minutes walk from the city center. I would repeat without any doubt.
Nice place to stay with friendly staff. There are 2 bar on the property with plenty of seating. This makes it easy to meet new people. Over all I had a great stay
Whilst the location of the hostel is not within the old town, the city is small enough for walking into the centre. The hostel is also very close to the train station. Great bar in the garden offering a cheap pint and sociable atmosphere. A kitten also roams the garden which seemed very popular with guests. Would recommend for those visiting Bratislava.
Great hostile, nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Location is a little way from the centre but the bus is only 90 cent for an hours travel! Would recommend
There were big lockers, it's near the train station and the bus stop. We slept there two nights (with a week in between), the first night in a 10 bed dorm and the second in a 6 bed ensuite. The first night, we slept at the street side and there was really a lot of noise, we really don't slept well that night. Second night was better because we slept at the garden side and there were less people at the hostel. Bathrooms and rooms should be cleaned more often.
A nice Hostel to enjoy the city if you are not just wanting to party, you can do that though. Helpful staff and a nice clean environment. Location is good central to the train station after a long day of traveling this makes a difference. It has cook facilities so good for those who are traveling for a long time.
Had everything a backpacker would need. Staff were great, good location to explore Bratislava from and has a cool Cafe in the garden. Breakfast is a few euro but was one of the best I've had Travelling. Atmosphere was fantastic as well and the themed rooms are cool. Will stay again for sure.
Good atmosphere but not the cleanest. A bit of a pain trying to have a drink in the garden with cats climbing all over the place and kids running around the bar. The cleaners seemed intent on causing as much disturbance as possible quiet early when cleaning the rooms

Hostel with a really good atmosphere. Nice Garden with a bar and cheap breakfast/Snacks in Summer, another bar in the Basement. Very kind employees. Cheap and good beer :) Located next to the Main Station, it takes about 15 minutes to walk to the old towncenter
The hostel was nice, clean, and really close to the train station. The staff was kind of helpful. Worst part was that it was so hot and there was no air conditioning, which made it pretty uncomfortable at night. I would stay again though.
Very Nice staff. Very good atmosphere
Nice hostel, a little on the older side but still fairly clean and comfortable. Nice garden that has a great atmosphere at night, a fairly quiet hostel but just the right size and atmosphere to meet people so ideal for solo travellers and perfect location near the train station and short walk from the old town.
the hostel was very welcoming and nice. very close to train station and about 5-10min walk to the city center. it is a party hostel with great atmosphere but it can naturally be a bit loud at night. especially because the hostel is next to a street with lots of traffic.
