This place is certainly off the beaten path, but it's worth the trip out to it. One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. The hostel itself is small and cozy, and gives a great social atmosphere for meeting other travelers. But the best feature is all of the outdoor activities nearby. Tons of great hiking, cycling, and in... More

I visited the Ginger monkey Hostel in the beginning of October 2013. I thorougholy enjoyed the staff, the scenary and the community atmosphere. The hiking in the area was suitable for all abilities and those seeking challenges as well. This place offered a key place to recharge after visiting the famous cities in the Central/East Europe. Highly recommend atleast 2... More

Recently stayed at the Ginger Monkey while passing through Slovakia. Great place to stay with friendly staff and good facilities, a brand new kitchen on the way. Great location near many nice hiking trails and local ski fields. Bus to get to and from Zdair confused us a little but the staff are happy to help you out with anything... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and after 4 months of travelling Europe I can definitely say this was the most charming place I stayed. The Ginger monkey is clean, comfortable and most importantly welcoming to all.from the moment we arrived Jim and the team looked after our every need from the five euro pizzas (a must have with a...

The ginger monkey is a must visit if you're travelling thru Slovakia. The hostel itself is perfect, exactly as advertised. The kitchen was being renovated while we passed thru so future visitors will have a beautiful new kitchen. Jimbo and Ian (the hosts) were awesome - very accommodating and helpful with directions. They took us out for dinner each night... More

At this hostel I stayed in the four bed dorm. The hostel itself is reachable by bus and definitely worth the getaway. Breakfast is included, simple but effective. The rooms are in good condition, it's decorated well and has a log cabin feel to it, the only thing it's missing is a log burner! They have a staxk if reclaimed... More

We had a lovely stay at The Ginger Monkey in Zdiar. So much that we extended our stay even longer! It is a very homely place and Danielle makes a real effort to ensure everyone is well fed and well looked after :) There was a BBQ on our first night and cooked breakfasts, the facilities are basic but it...

We recently visited and were excited especially after reading the reviews but we were really disappointed. We came to Zdiar from Krakow and were greeted warmly and offered a warm drink. We were introduced to the hostel and give a book on the local area but we were then told out room wasn't ready yet because the current guests were... More

This part of the world is great. Zdiar is a little set apart from the thick of the Tatras but definitely worth the extra trek. The hostel itself is a labour of love. The only thing I would caution is to familiarize yourself on the location of the hostel if you're arriving by bus as it is easy to miss... More

We chose this hotel because of the good reviews it had on Tripadvisor and LonelyPlanet. We could not be more dissapointed. The room and the house in general were very dusty. Cleaning is clearly never done. The shared bathroom was too smelly for us to take a shower. There are no lockers anywhere. As a result, you have a half-drunken... More
