Hostel was ideally located if you arrive by train into Bratislava, and with only being a 10 to 15 minute walk from town its very easy to get to all the main tourist attractions that make Bratislava a lovely city to go and visit. The advice from the staff of where to go to get the best views of the city knowing that we were only going to be in Bratislava for a limited time. Good atmosphere in the bar in the evening, and the breakfast menu was very tasty.
This place is right beside the main train station and is about a 20 minutes walk from the old town. It was pretty quiet when I was there so the atmosphere was a bit flat but the bar in the back garden was cool. The beds were rickety and the place could do with a bit of tlc but I enjoyed my stay!
We stayed in a 6-bed dorm. Naming the rooms after countries is a fun idea and the place is very personal style in other ways also. We backyard garden was cool and cozy. The dorm beds were kind of wobbly and there weren't electricity sockets for the upper beds, but everything else worked fine for us. The welcome shot of Borovička was the best! And the location is good, close to train station and walking distance to the old town. Would come again for sure.
the guy in charge was very stressed when we arrived but apart from that great hostel and we have a fantastic time!
Possonium is just great, if you visit Bratislava you should go to this hostel. Very kind 24h staff, we had a 6 room with own bathroom and lockers. It is close to the city center, you just have to cross 2 nice parks to get there. We went on sunday/monday, so nothing to do in Bratislava for nightlife. But the Hostel got his own bar both outside and inside, so we partied with about 15 people. General a great atmosphere
Great staff and close to the train station. The rooms were a bit small, but it was a nice place to stay at especially if you are on your way to Vienna or Prague. It had a relaxing atmosphere and even even had a welcome drink for free.
Nice hostel, awesome bar!
close to the train station. cozy inhouse bar. funny cool bartender. 1km away from bratislava's party heart aka st michael's gate. don't miss the local spirit.

Great bar area and cheap breakfast and drinks. The room was pretty good but very hot. Plus the guy working told us there was a big wasp nest and not to open the window. No air con, no fan, no windows open. Was a very unpleasant night trying to sleep. Ended up draping a wet towel over myself. If it had a fan would be no problem. Otherwise a cool place
Nice hostel, good location, nice staff, really nice garden bar in the back and basement bar for late at night, good place to meet your fellow travelers. Really enjoyed my stay here.
Lovely place and very close to the city centre (10min walk)! We loved the bar and breakfast in the garden! It was very hot during our stay, so we had to sleep with our windows open and because the hostel is situated near a busy road, we didn't sleep very well. Very friendly people and a good atmosphere; we enjoyed our stay!
This hostel was a best value for money. At the day chill atmosphere in garden with excellent breakfast, at night you can meet everybody from hostel in really cool bar in basement. Staff making your stay very comfortable. You can make your own food on grill in garden or in small but good equipped kitchen. They have free laundry, wifi is working excellent and dorms are nice with lockers in room. I will come back soon!

This hostel was perfect except for the location (15 minutes walk to town- still not a big deal). The garden was perfect to chill and meet people and the basement bar was better than most of the clubs in town and open until 3am!
The lady on the reception was not that friendly when we checked in and really did not know a lot about the place where she lived and what to recommend. The bar staff however were excellent a friendly. This was by far the most social hostel that we stayed in and met some really nice people here. Loved the downstairs and outside bar. The hostel is a bit out of town and a good 20 minute walk. The shared bathroom was kept clean and the room was adequate but basic. A good stay
Great outdoor area with a cat and her two kittens! Fun hostel. Very cool downstairs bar. You get to know staff here. 15 mins walk into old town. Majority of staff v nice and good fun. Free shot on arrival, super kitchen area, comfy bunks. there was no air con or fan and the ground floor room can get a little smokey if people are sat outside smoking. Recommend this hostel :)
The dorm in the summer night is just way too hot!!! Please do something to improve the condition.
I had a great stay here, met a lot of nice people and they have an awesome beachbar outside where you can also buy some drinks/food. After 10 the bar in the basement downstairs opens which is really cool! If youre going to bratislava stay here :)
Near train station and a short walk to downtown. Good and large lockers in the room. Free laundry and very nice bar/terrace.
Very poor location, close to the train station but far from the old town. This is a real draw back. Staff were overly laid back and we were made wait 40 minutes on our return to the hostel from our day out and about to check in with no explanation. The hostel was not particularly clean and while we stayed in a private room it was very noisy, hot (no air-conditioning and not clean). We would not stay here again, disappointed with the hostel considering the price and other reviews!
