Property Description

The Ginger Monkey Hostel has been set up by a couple of backpackers in the beautiful village of Zdiar in the High Tatras Mountains of Slovakia. Our price includes everything, there are no other hidden costs, the breakfast and all day tea / coffee is included and we pay the local city tax. The Hostel is cosy, friendly and feels like a home away from home, it is quite small and so quite sociable. We have various dorms and a large shared kitchen and lounge. It is a traditional building with all the comforts you have come to expect.

Locally there are a plethora of activities, in the winter there is skiing / snowboarding within walking distance, trekking, caving, walking our dog 'Wally' and in the summer there is even more trekking, cycling, climbing, skydiving and loads more. If this sounds too energetic you can simply chill out in the lounge, read a book or gaze at the mountains whilst drinking tea. We have restaurants and bars close by so you can get your Slovakian food and beer fix, at a very reasonable price.

Continuing on from Poprad gives you loads of choices for destinations as you can catch a train directly to Bratislava, Vienna, Prague, Budapest, Kosice (and then Krakow), and Munich. We have traveled around these places and can offer information advice and timetables for any onward journeys. View House Rules

    I highly recommend the Ginger Monkey. Best hostel experience I've had so far, and in a beautiful location to boot. A small, homey, sort of place, with organised activities every night, it was easy to get to know the other guests. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I would definitely have stayed longer if I could have. :P Only thing to be aware of is transport there is more difficult during the low season, so don't be like me and plan ahead properly!

    One of my favorite hostels in the world. Zdiar is a beautiful town and the staff make the Ginger Monkey such a special home. Big thanks to Kieran, Lida, Rose, K2, Lilly, Rachel, Wally, and K1 for the time of my life. There are too many Kevins at the Ginger Monkey

    Loved staying at the Ginger Monkey. Staff are super friendly and helpful, really accommodating with all our stuff due to our awkward bus time when we checked out. Definitely will be going back!
