Carpe Noctem has a great atmosphere and the staff is superb. There is something going on every day/night so getting bored it almost impossible. The hostel is close to most attractions and bars so if you are visiting BP for sightseeing and/or partying, Carpe Noctem is the right choice!
Location is pretty good and the staff is relatively friendly. Beds are sturdy and include personal lamps. Atmosphere was not too good though. I stayed in 3 hostels while visiting russia and all of them seemed quite boring to me.
Pros: close to the main avenue; most attractions are nearby; friendly staff. Cons: extremely noisy, specially at nights (there are several bars downstairs and you can hear everything from the rooms); i found the hostel boring.
It is really close to the train station. Facilities were clean and relatively comfortable. However, for some reason the hostel was like a sauna... extremely hot everywhere even though it was around 5C outside. It is a little bit noisy because of the bar located on the 1st floor.
Bratislava is very small so the hostel is close to the main attractions (probably the case for all other hostels in the city). The staff was friendly and helpful.
This place is awesome. It might not have the greatest facilities but it is well located, the staff is great and there is always something going on. It is the right place to meet other travelers and enjoy Bp's nightlife. I look forward to staying in this hostel in the near future!
Top-quality hostel. Great facilities, pretty clean and neat. Everything seems brand new and in very good conditions. Besides, it is like 4 blocks away from the city center and there is a metro station nearby... so its location is convenient. By far the best hostel I have stayed in in terms of comfort and value for money.
I think the hostel is overrated. It has some pros (location, super friendly staff, complimentary food, comfortable beds...) but some things should be better; for instance, carpets were not really clean, wifi didn't work well in the room, bath towels were worn out, there were only 2 power outlets in the bedroom and only 1 worked, lockers in the bedroom didn't work either. I suppose I was expecting something better because of the rating (88%) but anyway, it was ok.
Not the best front desk staff. It seems like thay hate their job or just do not care at all about being polite to guests
Very clean and confortable.
