Property Description

First of all, please be aware that we are a PARTY Hostel! If you are looking for a quiet night this might not be the best place for you, but be sure to check our sister hostel Urban Elephants hostel, they are a little bit tamer, but you can still come and join our daily activities and party with us at night!

Secondly, let us remind you that we cannot accept bookings from anyone under the age of 18 years old since we sell alcohol on the premises. Also, due to previous experiences, we don't usually take bookings from guests over 34, but if you are in for the party and getting crazy with us please email us so we can discuss it further.

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! And obviously, wild animals also need to sleep: our quiet hours go from 00 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, air conditioning, 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, a 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!

Amazing. Just do it. Phenomenal location in the center of old town and great staff, activities, and atmosphere. Wish I could have extended. Instantly feels like a giant family.

I’m terrible with names but I’ll try my best; shout-out to Ruaidhri, Emily, Ellie, Lily, Ruby, Josie, Hector, and tall guy with the cool jacket. I think I might have just made some of those names up, sorry to those who I forgot about. The volunteers are really top tier, can’t imagine a better place to stay in Bratislava

Absolutely the best decision. Located in a quaint old building, it sets the vibe for the day. You walk through the street of the city center just arriving at the Hostel. Once get there you are greeted by the most lovable and heartwarming staff. Any reservations you have are quickly swept away when the drinks start flowing. Everyone is super kind and helps out. Rori did a great job on Pub Crawl. Hector was so down to earth and was always up for a conversation. Ruby and Josie were the hilarious Aussies that w
