The ginger monkey has been the highlight of my trip. The location is perfect - once you step out of the hostel you are basically at the base of the mountains! Stunning views from the front deck if you want to sit back and relax in the hammock for the afternoon. The staff were incredible- so friendly, fun and helpful. I found this place to be the most social so far- everyone was able to mingle in the common areas and great friendships were formed. This place is +++

Really enjoyed our stay here. very friendly staff who can tell you the best hikes and provide packed lunches. Also an amazing free breakfast is served with unlimited tea and coffee all day. Relatively small hostel which created a nice environment as you get to know the people staying there. Also good facilities and strong wifi.

This is a place I want to come back to (both the hostel and the area)! The Ginger Monkey has everything a backpacker needs, plus an awesome atmosphere, friendly staff & the cutest dog. I can't really say anything negative about this place.

The ginger monkey was the best hostel I have rated at yet. The beautiful surroundings makes the place so chilled and relaxed. The staff are so friendly and will ell you with absolutely anything, big or small. It has such a homely feel with a good kitchen to cook in and eat free breakfast each morning, lounge room to chill out and watch movies and a good verandah to lay back and soak up the mountains in front of you. It is so peaceful and quiet in the dorms and hostel and the beds are comfortable

Amazing stay in the most welcoming hostel we've ever been to. Being there, in the middle of the beautiful Tatras moutains and with the fantastic staff and travellers, was like being home!

Double room could maybe do with some kind of lock - not that we thought anything was going to be stolen, just for peace of mind with valuables left in the room. We loved that staff arranged things for all the guests to do together like having dinner, going out etc, made for a really friendly atmosphere. Overall had a lovely stay, thanks!

This is absolutely the best hostel we have ever stayed in. You will end up falling in love and you will extend at least another night (everyone we met did) . Between the warm welcome and amazing staff always willing to help with directions, laundry or food to the amazing location in the tatra mountains. You will befriend the staff, the other travelers, and Wally (the dog). Seriously, book it right now. Thank you ginger monkey!!!

Hostel The ginger monkey has everything a hostel needs. Location, good staff, clean rooms, but that is not really important. What this hostel has is amazing atmosphere! The other Travellers all have interesting stories, there is plenty to do: hiking, going to an ice cave, to the Slovak Paradise, to castles and villages nearby. Every night there would be people playing games, people playing guitar and singing, or just conversation in the hammock. And of course, don't forget Wally the dogster!!

This is by far the best hostel I have ever stayed at! The staff is absolutely amazing and everyone is incredibly friendly. No matter if you like hiking or not (hiking is fantastic here though) Ginger Monkey is worth a visit. Wifi connection is good, free breakfast, possibly the best dog in the world on site, there is nothing bad to say about this hostel. It is impossible to leave without having made several if not more friends.

The BEST hostel I've ever stayed in - I don't even know where to start & there is nothing I can fault! Fantastic staff and great atmosphere! It's a small hostel, so you instantly feel welcomed & you get to know everyone staying & working there. Chill in the hammock or around the campfire with an amazing dinner made by Caroline, play drinking games with your new family. Zdiar is stunning - beautiful hikes, river walks, fields for picking wild strawberries & places to take the dog Wally for walks.
