Staying at the Patio Hostel in Bratislava puts you right in the heart of the action. Cook something up in our kitchen, or grab a breakfast pack in the morning for just 2 euros. Get to know other travellers in our friendly bar, garden or common room – there's no better way to get chatting than over a game of table football! Need to check in with home? There's free Wi-Fi in all rooms and the lobby, as well as computers with headsets and webcams (to prove you were joking about that new tattoo).


We're in the Nové Mesto (New Town) neighbourhood, in a quiet courtyard (no getting woken up by party-goers). It’s just 10 minutes’ walk from all the best pubs, shops and restaurants – so less spent on public transport, more on schnitzel! Want to soak up some culture? Don’t miss the Blue Church (7 minutes by foot) – to see how it gets its name. It's 45 minutes from Bratislava Airport: just get the bus to Mariánska, a few minutes away from us. If you’re bringing your own ride, park it safely in our car park.

Rooms and Dorms

When you’re all explored out, head to your dorm or private room: all have a shared bathroom or en-suite. There are mixed and female-only dorms, plus twins and doubles. No need to worry about bringing change for towels or linen – they’re both free. Our apartments have a bit more space, so you can invite friends to your place! Every room has storage lockers for your stuff (just remember a padlock).

Extras and activities

Chat to our friendly staff to get the most of your stay – they’re all from the local area and speak fluent English, so nothing gets lost in translation. Grab one of our free city maps, rent a bike from our kiosk and get ready to explore. When it’s time to check out, just hop in the elevator – no lugging your bags up and down the stairs!

    Fantastic hostel for meeting people! Fernando & Nora were amazing hosts and made our stay so much fun! Wish we could have stayed longer and we’ll miss everyone. Hostel has everything you need. Cheap and easy food from the Tesco across the road. The lake is a short tram ride away and was the perfect place to chill and swim after a crazy night. You should definitely go and make some great memories like we did.

    Everything about this place was ok except that the WiFi was horrible. As a traveler I personally consider that to be an essential. It took me about 20 min to book a bus ticket that I needed because all the pages were taking forever to load. So frustrating. Other than that, the place was clean and in a decent location and the patio area was nice. Lots of mosquitos, so bring bug spray. Also the room was hot & hard to sleep in. My first few nights there was no fan but then the staff brought one.

    This hostel was good but it didn't have a great atmosphere. it was huge so it existed on many levels with no real central communal space, and felt like more like a huge Youth Hostel than a proper hostel. however they did organise pub crawls / events every evening which were fun and good for meeting people, and the staff who ran these were great. Location was fine. a bonus for me was that they had washing machines and these were free to use.

    Really bad BED BUG problem to the point were I have had to have my bedroom at home in the UK fumigated as they got into my clothes and bag. No side lamps in dorms and no AC. Staff were fab however and I’m sure if I had time to complain upon leaving they would have felt with the situation.
