    The staff was really helpful and friendly. The Urban Elephants is well connected to the airport and the train station in Bratislava. The common areas are clean and well equipped. I enjoyed my stay at the Urban Elephants hostel. I would totally recommend it.

    Urban elephants is amazing. They are the calmer, less party oriented sister hostel to Wild elephants. This is perfect as you can walk over to the sister hostel to hang out, but still sleep in a nice calm environment. Atmosphere is amazing, with home cooked meals, group events, and friendly staff. Price is also great

    Really great new hostel. Rooms are nice and spacious, the location is excellent. Dinner was always very yummy and prepared with lots of love. Pubcrawls are great as well and it‘s nice to meet people from the other hostel as well. Also the staff is fantastic, everyone is outgoing and talks to you and happy to help with anything. Also big shoutout to Lana who even gave me medicine when I wasn‘t feeling too well!! ❤️ would definitely recommend and I‘ll be back for sure!

    The best thing about this hostel was the incredible staff. They were amazing and I cannot understate that their ability to provide information and their willingness to help my friends and I were the best. The only thing I was a little uneasy about was the lockers in my room did not have locks. But I just took my important stuff in a pack with me for the days and it was not a big deal at all. It was nice they have a sister hostel which has the bar, so this one was not loud at night.

    Still feels a lot like a work in progress and not really what I was expecting. Security issue for me was that the reception rarely had any staff at it and the front door was always open. The beds are pretty average with paperthin pillows and no blinds or curtains meant early morning wakeups. Socially there wasn't really anything happening because the majority of guests were 40+ and keeping to themselves. Decent enough location, good showers and the place was clean.
