It is a hostel located just blocked away from the main railway station (but not the old town), it is a walk of about 20 minutes to the city center. It is quite convenient for me as I need to stick to railway station due to my itinerary. Everything is quite nice but it may not be a good choice for party animals as it's quite far away from those areas. The rooms has good security which they provide the keys to lock the stuffs in the locker. The Wi-Fi has also good coverage.

Thank you very much for your nice review. Only 2 things we can´t agree with: To walk to the historical part is never more than 15 min. even if you walk veeeery slowly. For "party animals" we have our own fully equipped hardcore bar in the basement. Also there are 4 pubs/clubs just 3 min down the street.


This hostel is great. Value for money and nice staff are main reasons of my satisfaction :-) And bar in the basement with horror spirit is awesome.

Thanks a lot, hopefully we see you again...


Not just a great hostel but a great place to chat to and meet locals. The bar seems to have locals that come for just a drink every other night, really nice place, nice helpful staff with lots of info about the city, maps, train and bus schedules readily available

Nice to have a proper kitchen with everything you need to make dinner. The hostel itself is a little jaded needs some work doing the shower smells a bit damp and mildewed looked reasonably clean. Friendly staff. Good location 5mim walk from train station 15-20mins from centre if you walked plenty of buses going all over the place nice compact city with charm to it.


was a great hostel. very social, great location. kitchen was solid, however, when I was there because very cramped as many people wanted to use it, also because it was at the entrance kg a room. biggest issue I had was, there was a large amount of public display of affection, by the staff. which I think is really unprofessional especially when it meant people had to wait to check in.


Overall I had a good stay, but there were some staff issues. On my arrival the receptionist was doing her first day on the job and had been left there without any backup or support. She was trying her very best, but you can't expect people to wait 40 minutes to be checked in, especially when there isn't even a queue. Then on my last day the breakfast guy didn't show up for work. The receptionist recommended a café close by (Ranno Ptaca - GOOD breakfasts and gluten free (yay!) cake), but still...

Thanks for your review. We are sorry for the inconveniences and we are hoping to see you another time so we can retrieve your view.


great if you travel by train, very close to the main railway station. you get a welcome drink&every room is decorated in some other location(country) style-e.g. hungary, brazil, cuba


Nice place very close to train ststion


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.


It's was a far away from city center, but near Railway Station. Not much travelers in the Hostel at the moment my stay.

Hi thank you for your comment, if it is 10 minutes by walk far away, than you are right ;)


Easy to find from the train station, really friendly staff, nice rooms and great outdoor area

Many thanx, hopefully see you in the future...


Second time I've stayed here. Great hostel situated between the train station (5 min walk) and the centre (20 min walk/few minutes by bus). Relaxing beer garden out the back, and there is also the pub downstairs which can be quite lively. There are not that many toilets/showers, which isn't ideal if the hostel is full. Reasonable place to spend a few nights, although can be quite noisy in the summer months at weekends.

Thank you for yout review, we hope to see you many more times. One shower is for only 6,8 persons when the hostel is full, which is a high standard.


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.

Thanks for your review, we are happy that you´ve been satisfied with our staff and the hostel. Just 20 minutes walk to the historical part sounds like you´ve got lost :) It is 10 - 15 minutes maximally.
