    This was a fantastic hostel in the heart of Bratislava. A must place to stay. What makes this place so special is that they have hosts that organize a fun time in the hostel bar. My host Angie from Argentina was one of the best! The memorable experience I had meeting people from around the world is one I won't soon forget.

    Patio Hostel is closely located to the city center and only a short 15-minute walk from the main bus station. The staff at check-in were very friendly, the rooms were clean, as were the bathrooms. The people in the room were very nice as well. Overall, a great atmosphere. The hostel offered common areas, a kitchenette on each floor, and it seemed like there were many events to participate in as well, though we did not partake in them. Can definitely recommend staying here.

    Very Good

    Good points - Hostel was as described, and is in a very convenient location for the old town. Bad points - When we checked in we made it clear that we wanted to pay for the 6th bed in our room (we were a group of 5) rather than share with a stranger. This all seemed fine until checkout where we were asked to pay for the 6th bed, which we thought we had done when checking in. Had to rush off for our airport taxi and hostel made unauthorized charge to my credit card despite it being their error.

    Overall my stay was nice. The only downpart is that the common room is right next to the hostel bar which closes at 23u00 so everybody that's in the bar then comes into the common room. So at one point I was watching a movie on my laptop with headphones one and this group off people walked in being really noisy together with one of the staff so I couldn't finish the movie or relax after a long day in the common room.

    Spartan, characterless place facing into a courtyard... Which means the noise of every drunken guest arriving/leaving is sure to echo around and up to your bed... Inside, the layout and all the shiny hard surfaces ensure you'll get more of the same. Awkward (see noisy) room locks resulted in people leaving room doors open. Small common room and no breakfast. Keep looking; nothing to recommend.

    The worst hostel i have ever been, you will get bitten by bed bugs, when you check in they will give you a card with which you mark your bed, also the bed sheets so you have to do them yourself. At the 2nd night i found somebody else sleeping in my bed, my towel dissapeared, so i had to find another bed and put the bed sheets on again, it was totally the same the 3rd night and this time my pants were gone! One of the stuff members was totally unfriendly. This hostel is a mess. I do not recommend
