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

    Absolutely LOVED this hostel, by far the best place I’ve stayed at. Location is beautiful, staff & volunteers are so helpful and the hostel really has a family vibe, perfect for solo travellers & every night has a different fun event on.

    My word, this hostel is awesome. Be prepared to stay a bit here, a common saying you heard is "can I extend my stay". It's cosy and there is a dog. If you are coming from Poland, keep your money as there is a few hikes that go to the Polish side and there are cafes etc .
