Stayed for 2 nights in an unisex 6 people bedroom. Only good thing to point out, is that it is really spacious. It has quite comfortable beds but the lockers beside them are so annoyingly loud, that you cant use them without waking everone up in the room. We needed to leave early so we decided to not lock up our stuff in there. Although there was only one power outlet for 6 persons.
Dont get fooled by the "Art" in the Hostelname, there are just some added pictures on the walls.
What i really didnt like was the mold in the mens shower.

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.
