“Couldn't have been better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

This place completely exceeded my expectations. We booked the New York apartment on the top floor which was really clean and tidy. The only minor issue I had was the strangely low fixed position of the shower head. Otherwise the room was excellent, and it had an enormous balcony with a great view over Bratislava's Old Town.

The staff were really informative and friendly, especially Eva, and they were all really helpful when it came to any question asked.

Will definitely come back at some point.

Room Tip: The New York Apartment had a balcony with an incredible view.

Lovely hostel in a great location. Staff are wonderful, speak good English and are full of useful advice. We stayed in the Barcelona room, which was fine.

The toilet and shower facilities were clean and functional.

Basically this is everything you could ask for in a hostel and would highly recommend to others.

Great place, great location and on the top of that great staff! I'm delighted with my stay in Hostel Blues, the rooms are very spacious, clean and comfortable and the staff is lovely.

You can even attend to a slovak cuisine workshop with the lovely Paula!

Me and two friends booked two nights in the Hostel Blues in Bratislava to go a concert in November 2011 and we were not disappointed. We had the suite on the top floor with a nice balcony with a wonderful view over the city and enough room for us. The value for this hostel is unbeatable because we only paid around EUR 18 per night (if my memory serves me right) and I must say I have stayed in hostels for far more than that which weren't half as good as Hostel Blues.

The reception/bar is very nice, the staff is friendly and helpful, a 1.5 litre bottle of beer costs barley more than 1 EUR and everyone is helpful and cool. The room we were in was clean with a nice bathroom and enough space for everyone. The balcony was wonderful to hang around in the early evening, really, for this value, you couldn't go much better. Also, 10min by foot from the hostel and you're in the middle of the city centre with everything you need close by.

We definitely enjoyed our stay in the Hostel Blues and if Bratislava is a destination again, it'll definitely be our first choice again. Thank you very much in any case for a brilliant stay and loads of fun in Bratislava.

Room Tip: Go for the top floor rooms with balcony, it barely costs more and you got enough space and an awesom...

I went in blues hostel for one night with a friend and I have to say that I really liked it.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. The 6 dorms is big and comfortable. There is a bathroom outside the bedroom but just for the room. The bathroom is clean and big.
The common areas are very cool because friendly, it's easy to meet some people. The kitchen is also full equipped.

The only bad point is the towels: they are too small !! (but for free)

I totally recommend this hostel !!!!
