Our room was really nice and clean with comfy bed but the wifi didn't really reach the top floor. The receptionist Jana was extremely rude, just horrible and the other girls were't too nice either. We felt really unwelcome. The place is almost really good.

The room was big and clean, the bathrooms was ok although the soap dispenser in the shower (who uses sth like that?) could need a makeover. The mattress was a disaster. You can feel every spring in it. The weakest spot was the wifi, not constantly working and only available in the lobby. That's not 21st century hostel standard. The... More

Brilliant location in the centre of Bratislava within easy walking distance of any of the major landmarks. Given the location the price was very reasonable however, the rooms were something to be desired. It was very tight for 4 of us in 1 room and a toilet door that didn't lock, sometimes inconvenient. Wifi was average at best and was... More

City Hostel is in a great position, only 10 minutes walk from the centre, along the main high street. The hostel was pleasant and our room was large, with a fridge and a sink. The bathroom was also decent. The only thing that let it down was the rock hard beds which meant we had 2 uncomfortable nights sleep.

We chose City Hostel for our short visit to Bratislava since we already knew it. My mother stayed there back in 2008 when I lived in the city for a year and the place was brand new at the time, clean and in a central location. Fast forward to 2015, this place is a time capsule in a very bad... More

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
