It is a university dorm, very clean. It's the best thing if you are a couple that looks for a cheap private room ( but there are two single bed). With tram you can be in the city centre in less than 10 minutes but by foot is 1 hour and in the night the last bus is before midnight.
Good price. Next to a tram stop. Friendly and kind staff :)
Staff does not speak English, toilet paper should be provided (!!!), furniture and walls very old and partly broken
I think the "hostel" (not exactly, better will be "dormitory") is the one such big and only dormitory in Bratislava for 1000 people:) someone below used the word "labirynth" and that's what it is (try to find your room). do not expect more than fresh bedding, everything else is beyond reverie. main reason to stay there is of course economic. easy to get there, but you have to use bus and tram from main bus station and then from dormitory to city centre by tram is about 12 minutes. at own risk.
As Mlada Garda is a student accomodation, it seems a little unfair to compare it to hostel standards. In short, our room was comfortable enough (clean sheets), but the building is quite old and considerably run down compared to most hostel standards. The reception staff speak no english, and there is no tourist information available. If you're a resilient and easy going back-packer then its fine, but if cost isn't an issue then I would recommend looking elsewhere.
