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.


This hostel is amazing! The environment is simply perfect, the staff is awesome, the hostel it self has an nice decoration and the localization is 10 easy minutes to the center by walking and 2 minutes to the central train station. Really loved it! Back packer spirit all the way! :) Probably my favorite hostel until now.


great hostel, has everything you need as a traveller. Only downside is its a bit far from the old city, but then again Bratislava is small, so its only a 15 minute walk. very close to the train station which is super convenient


The hostel has a great atmosphere: the beer garden out back and the pub downstairs are great for socializing and hanging out. The prices are very affordable, too. As a bonus, the hostel has two adorable kittens roaming around the garden for guests to play with. The rooms and facilities are nothing fancy, but solid for a hostel: everything works and is clean.


Fantastic place if you like a casual relaxed decoration and with some humor and personel touch - Both bars are super. BUT the staff - except for one new guy - seem like they were tired of working there - No nothing could you expect - no smiling, no speciel service, no talking to their guest - They didn't seem to have fun, and that makes it a lot less fun for the guest AKA me!


they made bratislava way more fun than I could have imagined! the beer is cheap and available until 3am, and they have a really good breakfast menu to help soak up all the beer you'll be drinking in their social areas!


Fantastic atmosphere! Great staff, and they have kittens! Easy to get to from the train station, and only 10-15 mins walk to the old town. Great hostel!!

Hi Meaghan, we liked having you here as well. You know where to stay next time you are around!


Staff were very helpful and the atmosphere was great with the outdoor and underground bar. Location requires a bit of a hike to town centre but totally worth it since Bratislava is such a beautiful city. Price is well worth it had a nice time.

Hi Nathan, yeah, no matter what elements there are out there, you can always enjoy a beer in our place, in or out =,D Hope to see you again mate!


Great atmosphere. Clean. Free laundry. Super nice staff. Lovely garden, and the bar in the basement is convenient as there is not a lot going on in the area at night. We really enjoyed our short stay here!

Hi Maria! Your description could not be more to the point! Hope to see you again, Tack!


A very nice place to stay, not over crowded and the lockers were really good in the rooms. Great garden bar for relaxing. Staff were friendly and gave great directions.

Hey David, thanks a lot. We sure know our way around Bratislava (and our customers) as you yourself noticed.


This was an amazing hostel! The staff was super friendly, provided me with great maps and told me where to eat and things to see. It's right on the tram and bus line or you can walk into the old town center in 25 minutes. There's a courtyard bar and basement bar and you get a free shot upon arrival, I had so much fun just hanging out here. It was very clean and spacious and I felt super safe outside and with my stuff inside.


Nice hostel and near station. Lovely outdoor area too. Beds quite uncomfortable but nothing a traveller can't get over. 15 minutes walk into the old town.


It was odd.


Good bar, cheap drinks! Slowest check in I've ever experienced! The rooms are really cool!
