Property Description

Current news are: Slovakia is being under lockdown. First of all it does NOT mean that borders are closed. In fact the word lockdown doesnt really justify what it really is. We are keep on receiving guests who are crossing the borders without problems. Rules were made more strict with many exceptions for example: Its forbiden to go out unless for necessary shopping etc. With exception if you are going for a walk in nature. Bratislava has many parks and even big forest across the bridge so going around the town direction to the nature is whenever you will decide to go. This also means that we will keep on organizing EVERY single day our daily & nightly activities etc. To make sure you have the most fun possible!!! Basically government is trying to scare people with word lockdown, but in reality schools remain open, people can go to work, even majority of non-essential shops are open However the only thing you will need before entering is your covid certificate with QR code.

Please note that we do party EVERYDAY! If you are more into relaxing please check out our sister hostel Urban Elephants. (we run daily activities and pub crawls together with both hostels but meeting point is Wild Elephants.)

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 50 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 or unlimited hot water, 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

    This place is unreal and everything I could have hoped for in a hostel. The rooms are clean and well heated with the strictly enforced quite hours making sure everyone can sleep. There are also common room areas on a separate floor which are always open and have no quite hours so you can hang out or party as late as you want. The staff was extremely helpful and contributed greatly to the social atmosphere. 10/10 will come again. Also I would shout out all the staff if I could, but kate was great

    HI! In this hostel I found everything I could wish for. Great advices for sightseeing Bratislava, well equipped kitchen, clean facilities and AMAZING PEOPLE that made me feel at home right when I arrived. The stuff organizes activities in the afternoon and the night every day so even with the lockdown you'll have a lot of fun. Also vegan dinners every night are outstanding! I highly reccomend you to BOOK AT LEAST 3 NIGHTS to explore Bratislava and enjoy the hostel! Give Pierre some free booze

    It was my first time in a hostel, and I can now say the bar is set extremely high. The atmosphere is amazing, its extremely social, always something to do and someone to talk/chill with. All the volunteers are great and welcoming people, it was an honour getting to know them. Kate is extremely kind and really fun to talk to, and you will never be bored if Pier is round, that man is a PARTY ANIMAL. I hope I get to see you all again :)

    Amazing hostel. Right in the city centre. Run by volunteers who organise really cool activities during the day and night and also cook a really nice dinner. Beds are comfortable and bathrooms are very clean. Best kitchen out of any hostel I've stayed in, cool design and a ton of free stuff like herbs and spices. Atmosphere is really social and great place to meet people. Only issue is cold-lukewarm showers about half the time, but worth it. Shout-out especially to Sylvie, Izzy, Inez and Kris :)

    One of the best hostels Ive ever stayed in. Parties happen frequently and are truly wild but they are upstairs so you never hear it in the dorms. Staff were amazing and fun to be around all the time.
