    Great hostel in an amazing safe and beautiful city. They offer free laundry, and a big kitchen to use. Staff was very friendly and plan events every night. Ten bed rooms are big and separated by a small wall, feel smaller than they are. No a/c but big windows so heat wasn't too bad. Nice people staying here and nice bag garden and bar.

    Have been travelling with my friends for 2 months across Europe, this was by far the best hostel experience we’ve had. Staff were amazing people and very friendly, Hassan and Nina are 2 of the nicest people we have met. Amazingly helpful and great to party with, the staff gave this hospital a wonderful atmosphere that made us not want to leave. Facilities and beds also very good.

    The hostel is a good location between the train station and walking to bars in Bratislava. Check in took a long time. Downstairs there is a big bar and staff make effort to host activities (but you can skip the karaoke). Even though the bar is open to all it felt safe as it is a separate entrance to the dorms. Showers are really small and uncomfortable - I had to hold the shower head as it was broken in one.

    Reasonably comfortable, fairly welcoming, well used facilities in a great location. With so many guests - most respectful - common areas got dirty and messy quite quickly, e.g. bathroom floor flooded, lift being repaired, smoking in many common areas. My experience of Slovak hospitality and services elsewhere have been better!

    In terms of value for money the hostel was fine. But the rooms are tiny. The bathrooms are nothing to write home about… but functional. Staff are nice though. The beer garden and bar are great. It also has a nice recreational area. Free drink on arrival is delicious and the hostel organise social activities every night which we enjoyed! Overall we do recommend for a short stay.

    Alright place if you need to spend the night somwehere. Staff was great, however the cleanliness was an issue. Especially the bathroom. Water pressure quite weak on the higher floors. Rooms have no air-conditioning, but only a small standing fan, therefore you'd literally get cooked in summer. Overall, spending a night is ok, but not recommended for a longer stay, or if you are looking for some comfort.

    Staff were very friendly. Elevator was broken so we had to walk up five flights of stairs all day. There is no air conditioning and the room faced the morning sun so it got very hot very quickly. Also people were smoking outside the window all night long so either your room smells of that or you shut them and it is unbearably hot.

    The hostel didn't worry about cleaning, we had a glass with some drink in it with mold in our room so i cant imagine for how long that would've been there. Even the sheets and blankets had blood and some stains.
