Property Description

PLEASE NOTE our AGE LIMIT is 18-34. (read our House Rules for more info) and that we are a PARTY HOSTEL! If you are more into relaxing please check out our sister hostel Urban Elephants. (we run daily activities and pub crawls together).

Welcome to the Wild Elephants party hostel!

The Wild Elephants Hostel is not just a cheap bed in a great location: we offer fun-loving backpackers an experience unlike any other. Our volunteers are backpackers who would like to involve you in various daily activities (which range from having great local beers in underground bars, and lake trips to visiting secrets spots that only we know of), cook you every night delicious dinners (always vegan), give the best recommendations about what do to and what to see and take you for a wild night out in the best local venues of Bratislava with the Drunken Heroes Pub Crawl. From teaching you wild drinking games, and how to properly do a beer bong to helping you plan your day: we are here for you 24/7, 365 days a year! Ah, even though we are wild party animals, we also have every night chill activities at our sister hostel if you are keen. And obviously, wild animals also need to sleep: our quiet hours go from 10 pm to 7 am to ensure you have a great sleep!

The inclusive social and party environment we work in will easily make you a part of your new home shared with up to 50 of your future friends and definitely give you amazing memories, both day and night. We might NOT be fancy or newly furnished, 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 center of the old town on the 2nd floor of a 600+ years old historical building. Therefore we do not have an elevator or a parking space. What we do have instead is a hip place with spacious common areas, artistic walls, a well-equipped kitchen, a comfortable smoking area, table foosball, time machine, spaceship, and more!

Just on a side note, we also have wi-fi, printer, hair dryers, and straighteners, all for free :)

And also, if you are as competitive as we are, come and try to beat previous guests and volunteers on our Door Challenges - and maybe get your name on the door FOREVER!

See you soon!

    Literally couldn’t recommend it more. If it’s not on your route, reroute, come to this hostel. It’s a non stop party with a super welcoming atmosphere- if that’s not for you then don’t come. Shout out to Rory, Coline and Amelia for being super chill and leading great activities! Enjoy ur freebies ;)

    This is the best hostel that I have stayed at, bar none. The volunteers at Wild Elephants are some of the kindest, most fun-loving people I've had the good fortune to meet and they have created an extraordinary vibe and atmosphere that is impossible to describe until you experience it for yourself. The dinner each night is great for socializing and there are parties every night, typically involving an event (Pub crawl etc). Do yourself a favor and book a few nights, just stay away from the 72s!

    I had the best time here, staff all really nice and friendly and the after parties were so much fun plus you can still get to sleep without it being too loud at night. Senpi behind the bar was a great laugh as well. I would recommend this hostel to anyone who’s going to Bratislava!

    Only did one night he but really enjoyed my stay. Everyone was super friendly especially the 2 volunteers Senan (sorry if spelt wrong) and Joao! Only thing I would mention was that there wasn’t a lock for my dorm or any lockers to put my stuff. Everyone in the room was super friendly though and didn’t feel like my stuff was unsafe

    The hostel is centrally located it was a little confusing to find just because of signage. Definitely a very social hostel and you will meet people. The second floor party floor allows smoking inside which may be a pro/con for you but it wasn’t advertised as such so just a heads up. Level of cleanliness was as expected for a party hostel. As a women in mixed room, the ratio was heavily men - again just something to be aware of.

    If you don’t smoke, is not a place for you in the chill area. It’s no clean at all, and they doesn’t have lockers.
