Stayed for two nights at hostel possonium. The hostel is located within a 10 minute walk from the station which is great! However, there isn't a lot else around that area - a street of shops. It takes about 20 minutes to get to the old town, and then if you want to hit the main tourist sites it's a... More

The staff did not think at all how the guests were divided into the rooms. Beds, pillows and linen were all worn out. There was no air conditioning and when the other guests opened the window during the night, a lot of noise came in. It was very nice that the toilets were cleaned seven times a day (!) and... More

stayed here for one night and must admit it is quite a cool place to stay. only about 4 minutes walk from the train station.. There is a nice beer garden and you can bring your own drink outside and chill in the sun with a bit of music or you can even go the local supermarket and fire up... More

We slept there with my band while we were on tour, this hostel is amazing! It was so nice to stay in the outside bar,playing with the two cats, drinking a welcome drink, etc! Unfortunatly the "cave bar" was closed when we came back from the gig. Cant wait to go back there!

About a 10-15 minute walk to town, I stayed here with a 3 friends for a weekend getaway to Bratislava,we stayed here for a long weekend and it was 100% fit for purpose. Since there was four of us in total we opted for a 4 person room as opposed to dorms etc, this came with it's own bathroom which... More

He was very friendly and were in sync with us throughout the night. The receiption people were also great... More

We stayed at this hostel as it is quite close to the train station. We only had one night so didn't really get to enjoy the hostel facilities, but the rooms were good with comfortable beds and the staff were friendly. It is around 20-25 minutes to walk to the city centre.

I chose this hostel due to its proximity to the main railway station. This was because I knew I would arrive early in the morning and also leave very early in the morning and I did not wish to walk long distances at such a time. However, this also meant that it took about 15-20 minutes to walk to the... More

It is a bit out of the way from the places you'll most likely be going in Bratislava but the city is small to begin with and you can walk downtown easily in 15-20 minutes. It's only a short 3-5 minute walk from the train station though which was convenient. Laundry was free which was awesome, the beds were comfy... More
