I stayed in this hostel during my Europe trip. Place is average. Quite noisy. People come very drunk in the middle of the night and make so much noise. When you check in they ask you to like their page on facebook so you can get a small discount. I liked it. Reception is quite good. Girl at the reception... More

We went to Bratislava for four nights on a cheap Ryanair weekend. We picked this hostel as it was recommended in the lonely planet. We stayed in the room for two people called Klimt. It was lovely. The showers and toilet facilities were average. The hostel had a bar and restaurant which was handy. Overall a lovely stay

We have only been in Bratislava for a day, and this hostel was kind enough to take us in when we arrived at eleven o clock. The prices are kind of high (18 euros for eight person dorm), and the rooms are average. It is impossible to enter without making a lot of noise, so when you come in late... More

I stayed in an 8 person dorm which was fantastic! The only downfall was that it was SO hot in Bratislava and there was no air conditioning in the room. The room was clean, and right beside the bathroom for added convenience. Located close to the main train station, it was an easy walk to the hostel and back to... More

Not the quietest or most private, but clean and comfortable enough. The communal set-up is great if you want to meet people, the staff are helpful and the food in the bar downstairs is also good. However it is rather difficult to find, and also the bathroom facilities are somewhat insufficient when it is busy.

Classic dorm style hostel so very social, but not too private. Surprisingly good restaurant attached! Loved the zucchini boat. All in all this hostel is great for young travelers looking to meet people. It was kept clean and each room was decorated with character. One of the better European hostels I've stayed in!

It was a nice place to stay. Went during a non busy time but 2 showers and toilets on a floor for 20 people would be bad had it been busy. The restaurant downstairs was pretty good and not badly priced. Service was pretty slow at times. The wifi was not the best. It cut out for 2 hours one... More
