This place has the warmest, friendliest atmosphere with incredible staff. Literally everything a backpacker needs is here, a perfect place to rejuvenate before continuing your travels. Hit the bar downs stairs and enjoy!

Lovely hostel, very comfortable, very clean, the guy at the desk and his dog are very friendly and can't do enough for you. The bathrooms look like they have been newly done and the shower there is probably the best shower I've had during my trip around Europe...my only problem was that there are only two bathrooms for a whole...

Good location, 15 mins from the city center on foot. The staff is very friendly! Room and hygiene average. It's a great option if you're travelling by train (train station is just 2 mins away). Don't get a taxi as it will be too expensive unless you've called it, always use the public transport.

After 3 nights I am covered in bedbug bites! (50+) has a lot of potential and a really cool underground bar...massive shame it has bugs, don't stay here unless you want to get eaten alive! Facility's are what you would expect from a hostel, nothing special but does the trick! Great location, about a 20min stroll from the main areas

Small but very nice hostel. easy access while coming from the airport with 1 bus. Also on walking distance from the train station, if you want to visit Vienna by train. Private room was really nice decorated with green bottles. Just loved the bar in the basement.

We (me and 2 other friends) arrived in Bratislava with the intention of staying for one night only, and didn't book any place in advance. After searching for some hostels (all full), one of those managed to contact this hostel's staff, and they were amazingly helpful. They were able to accommodate the three of us, despite being almost full, and...

The hostel is well located, you can easily reach the center in 20 minutes walking. The room when I arrived was very dirty, the private bathroom as well it was awful. The bed wood boards was moving behind the mattress and at some point there was an hole. The garden is full of beautiful dirty cats who go around. The...

Dear customer, you have checked in at 10:48 which is an extra early check in. Our check out time is until 11:00 a.m. and check in time is after 2:00 p.m. Of course the room, bathroom, and kitchen wasn't clean yet, as we are cleaning the hostel every day between 11:30 - 14:00. In this time you were already exploring...
