    The bar is in the basement which is nice because I never heard anything. I did go down there once and there was people playing beer pong and having a good time. If you want to be social, this is a good spot. If you're looking to not be bothered, this is also a good spot. Very clean place. I stayed in a 12 bedroom and everything went well.

    We had a twin room with a private bathroom and we stayed one night. The room and the bathroom were very, very clean, the furniture was somewhat new, the room altogether smelled really nice. The common kitchen area was nice and clean. There was also a bar-room and it was also nice.

    Good location, a short walk from the old town. Good bar for meeting other travellers, and a really good kitchen. Close to a tesco supermarket and a Lidl too. There are nearby local bars which are cheaper than the central ones, and it's close to restaurants too.

    Cracking little hostel - only downside being that a friend I made whilst staying had possessions stolen from a locker that was forced open. However, other than this, a wonderful stay. German and Marco were fantastic in giving us ideas what to do during the day, and having a great time in the evening - would definitely recommend this hostel!

    Good spot for five- the room was fine with communal toilets/showers for the floor, nice bar and common room with cheap drinks and a bit of atmosphere . Very good value for money and not too far from most places in Bratislava

    The Patio Hostel suited our needs well. We appreciated the location, large kitchen, free clothes washing/drying and good room security. There was a strong vibe that the lockers weren’t trustworthy (signs saying to leave valuables at the front desk). We needed to ask for fresh sheets/towels as ours were stained, however the staff happily replaced them. Good location- easy walking distance to groceries and the Old Town. Handy USB charging points and a shelf next to each bed.

    Too big to actually have an atmosphere. No toilet paper in 3 of the bathrooms, even overnight it was not refilled. That being said, it is fairly clean and the rooms are spacious. There is a big kitchen, and the staff in the bar were friendly.
