Had an absolutely amazing time at this hostel. All the staff are so friendly, rooms are clean and they encourage everyone to get to know one another. Really enjoyed the soup they made us for dinner and takes the hassle away of finding somewhere to eat. Would have loved to stay longer but hopefully will be back at some point!

Even if I only stayed just one short night, it was enough to feel the power of this wonderful hostel right in the city center of Bratislava! The dorm where I was staying had an amazing view and people were very welcoming. Everyone is so friendly and it seemed like there were many events organised for the internationals coming here....

The people make a place: the staff here were so friendly and welcoming. They were very helpful with places to go, things to do, and organizing get together for guests. In turn, the guests took advantage of the opportunities provided by the hostel, and we met some great people.

We had an amazing time with Hostel crew. Free Tour, abandoned hostel tour as well. Highly recommended. You should definitely join Spanish classes 👌🏻 During our trip we felt like at home. Spend some time in the reception room and draw whatever you want.

My friend and I had such fun whilst staying at this hostel, and recommended it to other travelers. The staff are so friendly and make every effort to make you feel welcome. When my friend and I arrived, Sircea and Simon who had just finished their shift showed us around the beautiful town. They also took us for 'tower beer'... More
