Lovely warm, cozy and friendly atmosphere at the ginger monkey, with helpful and friendly staff. The location is incredible with a view of the mountains out every window, and close to lots of great hikes and other activities. Also home to the greatest dog in Europe. Really great for solo travels to meet people and welcoming to everyone. Would stay...

Cozy place well located for skiing in beautiful high Tatra winter. If you don't have winter gear they can sort you out. Clean facilities, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and the best dog in the world. What more could you ask for!

We were road-tripping through Slovakia a couple of years ago, and since Bratislava seemed quite vacant during the winter, we were advised to drive here, just to stay in this hostel. It's a really nice homey lodge house. We loved just staying in the kitchen hanging out with everyone or napping in the living room. The staff were all friendly...

Came here with 6 other friends and we were treated very well by the Ginger Monkey and of course, by Wally, the hostel dog. We took advantage of big beers for 1 Euro and the free coffee and breakfast. The hostel workers were very nice and friendly, gave us some good tips for hikes to do in the area. The...

This place has such a warm, homely feel and is right in the heart of the High Tatras so it's perfect for hiking in Summer and skiing in Winter (I've come back to experience both now!). The staff are always friendly, knowledgeable and promote an inclusive atmosphere for all the guests. Yummy breakfast is included, bathroom facilities are always clean...

This place was the perfect home in the mountains 5 years ago. It still is as authentic, homey and relax. No surprise, the view is still as magnificent and even if Wally the dog aged a bit, he still is the best dog in the universe. As always, book more than one night, you will stay longer anyway.

Thank Frédéric S
