    Never stayed in a cleaner hostel. Showers were solid compared to other places I’ve been. Staff were amazing, had a ton of good recommendations about the city and nightlife in Bratislava. They had daily activities exploring the city and family dinners which helped bring everyone together in the evening time so you could easily make friends to go out with. Definitely one of my favorite hostels, I will be back. Shout outs to Lucie, Luchia, Carole, Donald and Alice.

    Checked in by Donald, checked out by Donald. Convinced to leave a review, by Donald. Top bloke and a great member of staff. There are many others that deserve a mention - led fun, engaging activities and being able to hang out with people at the Wild Elephants has been a great bonus - you get the best of both worlds, a pub crawl experience and popping back to Urban for a quiet night. I would highly recommend that if you're passing through Bratislava, you give either this or the Wild hostel a go!

    Best of both worlds - chill at Urban Elephants, or party at Wild. The most welcoming staff with afternoon and evening activities along with nightly family dinners. This is one of the best hostels I've stayed at in a long time, and I 100% recommend it. The only hiccup while I was there was that on my last day staff didn't seem to know I was still staying in my private room, so they kept coming in at random times for whatever reasons but at least it shows it's well taken care of.

    Really good value for money! Amazing staff who were so friendly. The rooms and bathrooms were clean. A free dinner was provided each night as well as the hostel running a bar crawl even during covid. Very social, friendly and welcoming. One of the staff also owns a lovely dog who came to visit and was very well trained but super cute and definitely a highlight of my visit.

    I stayed with my boyfriend only one night in a double room, it's suuuper minimalistic (I think they are still working on the building, it seems pretty new). The toilets, the room and the showers were clean and all the members of the staff that we met were super nice. The city centre is very close and there are some supermarkets one block away.
