Property Information:

The Ginger Monkey Hostel has been set up by a couple of backpackers, in the beautiful village of Zdiar in the High Tatras Mountains, of Slovakia. Our charge includes everything, there are no other hidden costs, the breakfast and all day tea / coffee is included and we pay the local city tax. The Hostel is cosy, friendly and feels like a home away from home, it is quite small and so quite sociable. We have various dorms,and a large shared kitchen and lounge. It is a traditional building with all the comforts you have come to expect.

Locally there are a plethora of activities, in the winter there is skiing / snowboarding within walking distance, ice hockey, trekking, caving, walking our dog 'wally' and in the summer there is even more trekking, paint balling, cycling, climbing, skydivng and loads more. If this sounds to energetic you can simply chill out in the lounge read a book or gaze at the mountains whilst drinking tea. We have restaurants and bars close by so you can get your Slovakian food and beer fix no problem, at a very reasonable price.

Continuing on from Poprad gives you loads of choices for destinations as you can catch a train directly to Bratislava, Vienna, Prague, Budapest, Kosice (and then Krakow), and Munich. We have traveled around these places and can offer information advice and timetables for any onward journeys.

If we are full we now have a second hostel called 'The Moose Hoose' which is just 50 minutes away in the beautiful town Stara Lubovna, it is tucked away neatly in the country side offering walking trails, hiking, local rafting trips, nightly fires / bbq's, mini olympics, 'Moose Hoose has Talent', and plenty more to keep you occupied for days. This hostel can also been seen on Hostel World.

    Great hostel, the guys working there make you feel like you are at home. Toast and coffee/tea for breakfast. Great location with views of the tatras from the porch and a bunch of walks nearby. The beds aren't to most comfortable though and mine was difficult to get into without waking the whole dorm.
