The hostel is a bit removed from the main drag, which made finding it a little tough (mostly because we first had to hunt for a tourism office to get a map at....we were super well prepared). The man at the tourism office actually gave us directions to the hostel, and between those and the map we managed fine. Its... More

Myself and 2 others stayed in The Patio Hostel for 2 nights at the beginning of our inter-railing trip. The reception staff were so helpful with directions/telling us the best places to go.The hostel room was spacious, with good wifi and it had big under-bed lockers to which fit your whole rucksack. The showers were powerful and always hot and... More

The service is ok and the room was alright, but 60 euro for a double room in a hostel in Bratislava is way too much. I'm pretty sure that there are better options - even though the city seems to be getting more and more expensive.

In a good location as everything was in walking distance yet didn't hear any of the street noise and the hostel itself was very quiet. Lack of toilets and sometimes had to wait to go but this was not a major issue. Met some really nice people in this hostel but the city itself is still up and coming and... More

We are a couple who normally stay in private rooms at hostels or cheap hotels, but given prices for lodging in Bratislava we had to stay in a dorm. All the reviews seemed great, and it is true that it is clean and well located, but what you need to know is that there are far too few washrooms. We... More

The staff was friendly and the rooms were clean. We had several double rooms and one triple room booked for a weekend. The noise on the street was not that disturbing, but if you don't have a good sleep you may want to choose a room situated on the back side of the hostel.

A great low-budget hostel close to everything. I especially recommend Patio because of the following story: a small Roma theater group we consistently work with was recently discriminated against at another nearby hostel (when they showed up with a reservation for a performance in Bratislava, they were denied as soon as the management saw their ethnicity). Luckily, however, Patio Hostel... More

Nice little hostel, good location, really friendly staff, a nice common room, beds were comfortable and the rooms very nice. Nice garden and a full size fridge and small kitchen per half floor. Would recommend.

Bratislava was very much a stopover in our Eurotrip and we did not have high expectations with accommodation but this hostel was both great value for money, clean and in really close proximity to the Old Town- making it within stumbling distance from some of the local pubs, which really is a necessity given the availability of 1litre local beers...
