The hostel is very clean, the staff is very helpful and fun. There are 7 quite big rooms, we stayed at 3-person room, which had 3 beds and bedside tables, 2 showers and a detached lavatory. The beds are sturdy, the mattresses are not too soft or too hard. Very good quality for a reasonable price.

Thanks for all 5stars reviews and thanks for all other reviews too. It is nice to get 5 stars and would be great to have it always, but then we will be on our top and it won't be fair. Even if you see 5 stars for us be sure we always hide one for ourselves because we see so... More

I must say that this is an amazing and cost friendly place to stay in Bratislava. Not very far from city center, clean rooms, free wifi in rooms, adequate breakfast and a very helping staff. So all in all it was an excellent place and surpassed my expectations. Also its located near the river and provides a nice view.

My boyfriend and I stayed at this Hostel for a couple of nights after a music festival. It is in a lovely quiet location next to the river, it's spotlessly clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. Our room was large and had a big bathroom with bathtub.

Stayed for two nights in a double room at this great hostel in Bratislava. I found it on trip advisor and was not disappointed. Probably one of best hostels I have stayed in Europe. Relaxing on the river front, good breakfast and relaxed environment. Wish I had stayed longer! Not in the centre but tram and bus links right outside.

Thank you for nice review and for room tip. Second floor rooms are only for private use so we do not offer them to our guests. According to booking load we are offering riverside rooms, some customers prefer to have opposite side rooms, because sometimes in warm evenings we have cafe guests on the sundeck front of rooms until late...

“Though we didn't see the 2nd story rooms, those facing the river seemed to have private patios and great views. The 1st story rooms facing the river are best.”
