The hostel is above a pub, which provides a good place to go if you do not have anything to do. In addition, the location is very good, close to bus and tram stations. On the other hand, the sheets aren't as clean as they should and the showers are not good at all. At least people there are very... More

This hostel is in a good location and good value for money. Our private 3 bed room was spacious and very clean (certainly no bed bugs in this room which one recent reviewer has complained about). The room looked like it had been recently refurbished and had the feel of a hotel, rather than a hostel. One downside is wi-fi... More

Excellent ration quality/price. Rather clean basic hotel with renewed bathrooms. TV set are just there for decoration. Do not expect that all of them work. No internet connection either : just one single computer is available for guests, at the reception. Now, the price is very cheap, and quite surprising because the quality of the rooms is quite good. So,... More

I've stayed here on several occasions and intend to return as it's reasonably priced, clean and central. The staff have usually been friendly with me and always willing to help. But the rooms can be awfully noisy as other guests come back late at night and chat in the corridors. Its location is excellent for cafes and a splendid little... More

Room is basic and clean but there are no hostel facilities. Staff were quite grumpy and not very helpful. Basically it is a very cheap hotel in a good location. We booked a double room, however they only have twin beds so we had two pushed together not too bad but you can get lost in the gap!

Clean enough, relatively comfortable bed. Room was en-suite which was a bonus. Reasonably pirced, 30 euro for a single room. Pointlessly small TV in the room, but all channels were Slovak in any case. Some of the drink they sold in the fridge was substantially out-of-date.

Its a room and bed and roof over a head for a relatively good price. Location is very good. Cleanness is average. We stayed at first floor, witch was good considering we had a toddler in a stroller. One member of staff was a smiling darling, another didn´t speak that much English and was not that good of a communicator... More

Advertised wifi and Internet, there was none and when enquiring were met with hostility. Advertised a common room, did not exist. Cabe tv, nope, etc. these things (expect Internet) weren't imperative but it leave a sour taste when it's what... More

We booked a triple room for one night, arrived late and left early. Price and facilities were ok for such a short stay. The gate towards the street was locked during the night and it was safe. Location is perfect - in the middle of the shopping street Obchodna ulica and not far from the main square in the historical... More
