    I‘ve felt like part of the family the second I arrived. The atmosphere is really chill, everybody is beyond helpful and relaxed. A special thanks to Alex, my favourite volunteer. The perfect place to stay in, can‘t wait to be back.

    First thing, I don't like Christmas, it is the beginning of December and the staff (especially Donald) here really showed me the true meaning of Christmas. I love Urban Elephants for teaching me this, changed my life. Stay here! And I'll see you here!

    Urban Elephants is a wonderful hostel, with fantastic staff and guests. My only criticism is that Carole, the receptionist when I checked in, said she would join me in a welcome shot, but clearly did a shot of water while saying 'oh, it burns' in a poorly acted attempt to convince me she was drinking borovička. Still, 10/10. Cannot reccomend enough!

    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!
