Hostel Blues is a comfortable, carefully decorated, boutique-style hostel located within walking distance of most of the city's sights. It's little wonder they were rated the best in Slovakia at the 2010 and 2009 Hoscars. Hostelworld guests have told us that 'all hostels should learn from Blues' because 'there is more atmosphere [here] than I've seen anywhere else'. This hostel features large, comfortable rooms, a spacious kitchen, weekly concerts and free Internet and Wi-Fi.

Overview

At Hostel Blues, we're famous for our welcoming, friendly vibe and our boutique-inspired décor. As well as live concerts every week, we also organise beer tours, cooking classes and film nights. You can meet other travellers while snuggling up to the oversized pillows in the lobby, stretching out on the sofas in the common room or catching a show on the flatscreen TV in the kitchen as you share a meal. We've also got a bar that's open 24 hours a day in case you're thirsty at 3am!

Location

We're right in downtown Bratislava, so you can easily wander round our cool and compact city with a free map from reception. If you're heading in from another city by train – we're only an hour away from Vienna, after all – we're just 20 minutes on foot from the Bratislava Hlavná Stanica station. Got heavy bags? Jump on tram 1 towards Jungmannova and get off at Vysoká, Tchibo Outlet, a 4-minute walk from the hostel. The journey should just take 12 minutes door to door.

Rooms and Dorms

Private rooms and mixed or female-only dorms have en-suites or shared bathrooms. You'll have bedding for free (ask at reception if you need a towel), and every bunk's got a lamp and plug socket so you can charge your phone while browsing on the free Wi-Fi. Most rooms come with a TV as an added bonus. There are hairdryers too, and plenty of lockers to go round. Travelling in a group? We've also got a six-bed flat featuring a terrace with views over Bratislava.

Extras and activities

Bit of a musician? Grab one of our guitars and start strumming. We've got board games, foosball and a book exchange to keep you entertained, too. There are public computers in the lobby, so there's no need to squeeze a laptop into your bag. Whether travelling alone or with the squad, you're sure to feel like part of the family.

    Hostel Blues was great for me. The staff helped with everything - from recommendations for eating & parks to getting me securely in a ride that would take me to my next destination (a somewhat obscure Austrian town with monumental Roman remains - Carnuntum). I felt taken care of which means a lot when traveling solo in unknown parts. Bratislava is absolutely charming & hostel is well-situated for seeing sights in all directions. I got good sleep, did laundry too.

    I was absolutely impressed with Hostel Blues. The atmosphere and rooms are really nice and fun, and everything was clean. The security is very good (you have to use a fob three times and a key to get into your room), and the staff was really helpful and accommodating. My reservation got messed up in the computer and they fixed everything for me without a problem. They had great recommendations too for things to do and places to eat. And at this price, it was even better!

    What a hostel, the staff are so kind and helpful (also very friendly). The pub crawl was an amazing feature to the hostel as well as them being useful in helping you commute around the city. I'd 100% recommend giving this hostel a try if you're ever stopping in Bratislava.

Hostel Blues says

I think the most important parts of our hostel are the extraordinary staff, the family-like social atmosphere and perfect location. And those are the things which put our hostel ahead of the rest and make this place outstanding. As we are passionate culture-lovers, we love to reveal the most hidden secrets of Bratislava. You won't have to walk for long to discover it, since the Old Town is just around the corner from our hostel. It is the centre of cultural life, where you can visit the main historical monuments, galleries and museums, try our local cuisine and of course experience Bratislava nightlife. Also we love to organize weekly live blues concerts, cooking classes and dinners, little spontaneous parties or movie nights. Hostel Blues Team, Staff
