Great atmosphere and lots of perks such as free laundry, towels & linen. BBQ meal on patio available most nights which was great and the downstairs bar was really good. Computers and games such as table football & darts too. Only criticism would be lack of showers/toilets but on the whole a great hostel, definitely recommend
Very good location - short walk from the old town. Free beer or bottle of water on arrival. Room satisfactory in contents. Staff helpful and useful for recommendations. Often people chatting outside while we were there, and the option of a barbecue in the evenings, although we didn't try it. Main complaint was that there was a single sink and toilet between 4 private rooms and two dorms. This was manageable, but not the best. Also, we found a bit of blood on some of the bedding. Overall average.
The room was small and you could hear everything happening in the hallway and even in the showers. I could not sleep well, it was very noisy. The place is not very clean, and you have to pay for everything. Their breakfast is a bad joke and not even included in the price, so additional paying. I DO NOT reccomend this.

We got a room for two at Patio Hostel and it was great. Very big, clean, confortable, it almost felt like a hotel. The bathroom was big and they even gave us towels, soaps and shampoos. The location of Patio Hostel is good and we could visit every touristic point walking from there. The staff was helpful most of the times.
Pretty nice hostel, with good atmos. Free welcome beer was cool, and the room was good enough! Trunks under bed were very spacious but awkward to lock with a padlock. Conventional lockers may be useful. The patio and BBQ looked fun too! Lovely and helpful staff!
Well located in the city. The room was clean, secure and comfortable. We stayed only one night on our way from Vienna to Budapest and it suited what we needed. We didn't experience much of the hostel as we were out most of the time we were there but it seemed nice.
Mixed feeling about this hostel. Has good points but many flaws as well. Seemed more like a former student housing block turned into a hostel. Has kitchen on each floor but more of a kitchenette and not ideal for cooking. Computers in common room provided but they would have to be the slowest I've ever come across, like from the 90's. Crowd predominantly young and can be a bit noisy/inconsiderate at night.
Good hostel. Good location. Good staff. Good everything. Would definitely return
Really enjoyed my stay here, the staff are awesome and the 1.50€ BBQ is an awesome way to draw everyone down to the courtyard and be social. A really great way to meet people if you're travelling alone.
Very good. I stayed in a spacious 6 bed dorm, and it was true to the pictures advertised on their website. Everything was very clean and spotless. The linen provided was good quality. There were even spare towels available in the bathrooms incase you needed an extra one. The only thing that needs fixing is that the section that you need to attach your own padlock to, to lock your own locker is too far apart for any common lock to fit between. You had to leave the locker unlocked. Lack of safety.
Great place, needed more for the of people. But other than that. Awesome! Love the bar in it. Staff are great !
Lovely hostel, really nice patio area out the back (though the wifi was a bit sketchy there). Spacious dorms and great bathroom and kitchen facilities. Could have done with more chairs in the communal area on our floor (level 3) but otherwise really good. They even have a daily BBQ that looked delicious for only €1.50! We went out for local food during our stay but was definitely temped!
We spent one night here and one night at hostel blues and the difference was huge but with little difference in price. It was good but not excellent, the bar downstairs was good and let you meet people easily and the bbq would have been good if it wasn't raining. Lack of plugs in 10 bed rooms and only 2 showers per floor was a bit much. Overall good but not the best.

So nice hostel! I really enjoyed, thank you! Own bar was amazing! Here you get to know so many travelers as well because there was space to hang out :)
Patio hostel is great for meeting people! The patio outside and the bar downstairs create a great atmosphere. Rooms were spacious enough and they'd put a fan in our room due to the heat. There's also a fridge on every floor making sure there's enough space for your stuff as well. Staff was very friendly and the hostel was easy to reach. BBQ that they offer is on the small size and took an here. Could use more bathrooms on every floor. Elevator was useful!
Lockers were not very secure, they could be opened by several keys. Other than that, it was a fine hostel. Only thing that annoyed me, was that they made me change rooms, so i had to check out in the morning and check in again in the afternoon. That was really annoying, because part of the reason i booked two nights in a quiet city like Bratislava was that i wanted to rest and sleep long.
