Rado (the host) is very kind. Very central (tram right in front of the hostel). Very big and clean space and relaxed. If you're visiting during the weekend, the clubs might be loud nearby, but there are free earplugs available at the desk. Would definitely come back!

Owner and staff are very knowledgeable about the area and happy to help. Beds are comfortable and the social area has a big TV, Netflix and all that, and the hostel is right ok one of the main streets. I have stayed here lots of times and keep coming back.

It’s a great city. Super surprised and happy to have had a chance to get to know Bratislava. Rado is a really cool guy, who loves his work. He was very friendly, helpful and I wish him the best. Free coffee in the morning, chilled environment and great location!

I enjoyed my stay at this hostel. Our rooms and the bathrooms were immaculately clean. There was a decent kitchen, and a very spacious sitting area. I appreciated that I could do laundry here. Location was right next to the center of town, and very easy to get to from the train station. Good wifi.

My friends and I had an awesome time in folks hostel in Bratislava, we enjoyed a lot the shower, that was excellent, the washing machine, the cleanliness of the rooms, and the PS4 (and more) in the common room. Special thanks to Prado at the reception for the outstanding hospitality and constantly taking care of our needs and questions. We will certainly return to Folks hostel and to Bratislava as the experience was excellent for us.

I had a great time in this hostel. First of all the staff was always friendly and helpfull and they had very good tipps for things to do in Bratislava and where to eat and drink. Originally planned to stay for only 2 nights, but there were so many nice and interesting people from around the globe that I decided to stay a whole week there. But you also got your free space and you can totally chill out there, especially during daytime. Everyday the whole hostel got cleaned, they had free towels and you can also cook and wash your laundry. I definitely reccomend to stay there, everything is just fine there and if you want to go out to the city, you definitely just have to step out the frontdoor, it’s very central. It was worth it and I had a great time there!

We spent there 3 nights. The room was spacious and nice, heating was working fine. The room and the bathroom was clean. Hostel provides free coffee, water and tea with biscuits as well as WiFi with good signal in the room. There is also common space with a tv. Location is perfect, very close to the city center. Receptionists were friendly and happy to provide any informations we needed. I would definitely recommend, especially the price was very cheap.

The overall experience was phenomenal. There was nothing negative about it. The hostel is all round clean, with friendly staff that answers any question you have about the city. I was amazed at how cheap the place was compared to the actual experience. The location is excellent, right in the heart of Bratislava, close within walking distance to many tourist attractions. It is in a safe location and quiet at all times. Definetly recommend!
