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!

    Good quality hostel with very good facilities. Excellent kitchen provided with plenty of equipment. Staff are extremely helpful and accommodating. One negative comment would be the rooms get extremely hot at night and there is no air conditioning so I found it particularly difficult to sleep during one night. I would recommend putting in a water fountain for filling bottles of water for when the kitchen is closed that’s not the bathroom sink.

    Great hostel with lots going on. It is very central to the Old town of Bratislava which is the popular destination. The hostel was clean, staff where friendly, great pub crawls. Only thing which isn't the hostels fault really is that when its hot in Bratislava the rooms get very stuffy and is hard to sleep.

    The staff at this hostel were so friendly & helpful. It was in a very good location, easy to find your way round the city from here. One of the best atmospheres I have encountered while staying in hostels, so easy to meet people by sitting in the garden or in the bar. Very cheap food every night too. Definitely would recommend staying here.

    They staff were very helpful. Free laundry services. The bar is kinda small and seats can get packed quick at night but there is a common area next door where you can play your own music along with board games. Over all would recommend to stay 😋

    If you're a social person, you'll probably love it. Most of the days, the atmosphere is great, they have drinking games pretty much daily and you can always hang around with the staff. Other plus points are the kitchen, one of the nicest hostel kitchens I've seen, and the laundry room. However, if you're looking for a quiet night away, it might not be the best option. The rooms and showers aren't that great and it gets very loud at night.
