    We loved staying here! All the staff was kind and helpful and spoke good English, we felt welcome. Very clean facilities. Space to relax and do your own thing, or meet people and make plans to go out. Drinks at the bar were cheap, events were fun, we loved our first hostel experience!

    The staff weren't anything special in comparison to other hostels, but they were nice and polite. There are lockers in the room that are assigned and they a built in lock. The location is in between the main bus station and the old town. Also there is a really good authentic (and cheap!) restaurant called Slovak Pub 2 block away that is 100% worth eating at. The common area in the basement is also worth checking out as they do have some facilities there as well. Wifi was great in my room.

    Showers weren't great but overall a fine experience at Patio hostel. The free laundry was a huge help and the staff were all really nice about helping me with whatever I needed.

    The hostel was in good location near to the old town and although could maybe do with some updating we paid a cheap price so that wasn't a problem. The only issue that we had was that it was very noisy at nightime (not just at the weekend but in the week too) despite 10pm being the start of 'quiet time'. The hostel also ran pub crawls and events in the bar downstairs which sounded a lot of fun - however these carried on until around 11:30pm so again was not really helping with the noise issue.
