Located on a quiet street just outside the Old City walls is this great hostel. Rooms names after famous painters in an old building. Clean and with all the amenities you could wish for. Restaurant/Bar on premise with budget prices. It's location also makes is walking distance (15 minutes) from the main train station and the WWII monument. Highly recommended.

I've been travelling by bike beside the Danube and stopped in Bratislava to visit the city. I firstly looked for a camping, but since it was in the outskirts I ended sleeping in this nice hostel that is really not expensive and close to the city center and in the street of the nightlife. The young personnel is very nice.... More

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!
