“Really good hostel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

The position of the hostel is perfect for visiting, being half way between the castle and the center of the city. At least this hostel helped me to have a good stay, the staff is amazing, very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and spacious (unfortunately no windows) and the whole structure has a creative style; you can play darts or play guitar if you want to in the common areas. There's no kitchen unfortunately but there's a microwave and the breakfast included in the price; if you want to stay in Bratislava it's definetely a good option!

I liked my stay here. The Hostel is clean, the beds are very confortable, the location is pretty well in the city, close to the castle, and there is free internet.

Only bad points: no towels for shower, that is not really nice when you have to take your wet towel away with you when you live the hostel.

Stayed here with my friend in July 2013.
The hostel is clean and has lockers which are big enough to fit travel rucksacks in.
The staff are friendly and willing to help, there is also a board in the common room with details of top attractions,restaurants, bars etc which is very helpful.

The breakfast is basic but nice. only bad point is the lack of plug sockets to charge phones etc, thankfully i was travelling with a friend so we shared the same one.

Stayed here with a group of 15 guys. Occupied 4 rooms, 3 of which had comfortable bunk-beds. Despite the airco rooms get warm.
Breakfast is basic, but for this price you shouldn't complain, and from 8-10.
Friendly receptionists.
Fridge with cheap drinks in the lounge area.
Free wifi.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Stayed there for a few nights last week. I agree with previous contributor - "Very close to Castle and Old Town. Receptionist was friendly and helpful. No noise from street". I didnt notice that "walls were thin (could hear everything in next room), ants in shower", However .... the breakfast was not great (but was included). My main gripe was that the en suite toilet was not clean on our arrival which left me wondering how clean the rest of the room / bathroom was. On the plus side the location is good, staff friendly and helpful, there was air con in the room and wifi and it didnt cost the earth.

Room Tip: We stayed in the 'Opera' room at the top of the stairs. Two single beds set out end to end...
