    I was very happy with this hostel: it was clean, cheap, in a good location, and had helpful staff. The atmosphere was very quiet, which is what I was looking for.

    Great hostel. Quite small, but has everything you need, including a lovely outside area and a perfectly equipped kitchen. Right outside the old town, staff was great, geat value for money.

    Would prefer the smoking section to be a bit further out. The smoking section is next to the building so the smoke/smell comes in when you have you windows opened

    Great place to sleep in Bratislava. The kitchen facilities are very big and well equipped. Patio is a very large hostel, you will meet plenty of people here.

    Not a bad hostel! Very good for the price! Felt safe and close to the main attractions of Bratislava. My room was unfortunately super smelly though. Also there was only one sink and toilet for several rooms but it usually wasn’t a problem. It is a hostel where they make you make your bed though and strip the sheets at the end. Not a lot of activity so it’s definitely not a party hostel. I would stay again though if I visit Bratislava again.

    Big lockers and nice beds. Huge kitchen, no oven though. Free laundry which was great!! (Detergent 1,5€). Helpful staff. Not the greatest security. Anyone could really walk in and up into rooms if the doors weren’t closed (they were closed at night). In the day you were supposed to show an assigned wristband to get in, but you didn’t have to. Lock your things! Great for the price! Would probably stay again.

    Stayed at Patio hostel for three nights and was not impressed at all. They proclaim that they will ensure that there is quiet from 10 PM, but still we experienced people running and shouting at night, keeping us awake. They even tried to open our door serveral times. The location is fine, close to a tram downtown but the overall experience was affected by this. Online it says that they have discounts on local restaurants but when we asked at the lobby, the woman did not know what we talked about
