Property Description

The Wild Elephants Hostel is not just a cheap bed in a great location. We offer you an experience unlike any other. Our volunteers are backpackers who would like to involve you in various daily activities, cook you delicious dinners and take you for a wild night out in the best local venues of Bratislava.

The inclusive social environment we work on will easily make you a part of your new home shared with up to 40 of your future friends. We might NOT be fancy, newly furnished or even professional, but we love what we do and we share this love with everybody who seeks an open minded place to have fun and meet people.

We are right in the old town on the 2nd floor of a 200 years old historical building. Therefore we do not have an elevator, what we do have instead is a hip place with spacious common areas, artistic walls, well equipped kitchen, comfortable smoking area, table foosball, time machine, big banana room, etc. View House Rules

    Exactly at the centre of the old town. Well-equipped kitchen. Good vibes. The party is upstairs but not affecting downstairs so you can party or chill depending on your mood. Friendly staffs especially Rocco. Prepare more days to extend your stay.

    We absolutely loved our time at Wild Elephants! The staff are what make the place so great with daily activities, cheap family dinners, lit pub crawls and everything in between. Was also super easy to see the city from the hostel and we appreciated all the recommendations for places to see and eat at. Shoutout to Lauren and Fabian and everyone else for the best two nights! Pro tip: just accept that you’re going to want to extend your stay (we did within an hour of our arrival haha)

    Wild elephants has a great hippy vibe, more than any other hostel I have stayed in. You can draw on the chalkboards and write on the reception wall. Parties in the seperate bar upstairs that you won't hear from your bed. Rooms are a little small and the aircon isn't great. Only major downside is the hot water system. We had no hot water the whole time we were there! This is common in Slovakia though haha.

    Staff is made up of volunteers and the current group of volunteers aren't the most welcoming bunch. You'd expect maybe a slight smile or headnod but these guys would stare at you with the most blank face ever then look away like a deer staring into headlights. So awkward. The bathrooms looked clean but reeked of mold and the beds were the creakiest hostel beds I've ever slept on. Location and price are the only good things.

    Was reccomend this hostel who stayed there and loved it. Unfortunately I didnt but could of been just not the best mix of things. I loved the two dogs and the family dinners were good to meet people. I found some of the staff a bit rude. The door in the dorm I stayed in was constantly left open and never locked. The decor was super interesting and fun. The upstairs was cool tho wasnt big enough for the drinking games.

    If you are booking in advance, just beware of their pricing scheme, where two weeks out the price is much higher, then the price drops steadily, so your cheapest price will be the day of booking. Also, paying €5 for the pub crawl is a complete waste of money when they don't take you to any clubs that require a cover charge anyway, and they definitely don't give you enough shots to justify paying. The vibe there is also very creepy, like you wonder if you will leave with all your kidneys.
