“Good, quiet hostel”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

This is a good hostel in an excellent location (right near the city center). Having read some of the other reviews here, I agree with much of it.

- The rooms are large, clean and have comfortable beds.
- The lockers are also large, but also extremely loud. If you have any light sleepers in your room, it will wake them up whenever someone opens one.
- There is a significant lack of sockets in many of the rooms. I know mine only had two in it, I think.
- The wifi is indeed very fast.

That said, if you're looking for a crazy party atmosphere, this is not the place. In fact, there was practically no one there (though I do understand that it's October and not the high season).

Also: I wouldn't stay more than two days in Bratislava. I did four, and there is not remotely enough around to justify a stay of that length.

The hostel was very clean and had many facilities such as a kitchen and Laundry. It's 5 - 10mins walk from the castle and to the centre of Bratislava.The complimentary breakfast was worth waking up for. The beds were comfortable and we both had our own locker .

Stayed for 2 nights in an unisex 6 people bedroom. Only good thing to point out, is that it is really spacious. It has quite comfortable beds but the lockers beside them are so annoyingly loud, that you cant use them without waking everone up in the room. We needed to leave early so we decided to not lock up our stuff in there. Although there was only one power outlet for 6 persons.
Dont get fooled by the "Art" in the Hostelname, there are just some added pictures on the walls.
What i really didnt like was the mold in the mens shower.

The position of the hostel is perfect for visiting, being half way between the castle and the center of the city. At least this hostel helped me to have a good stay, the staff is amazing, very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and spacious (unfortunately no windows) and the whole structure has a creative style; you can play darts or play guitar if you want to in the common areas. There's no kitchen unfortunately but there's a microwave and the breakfast included in the price; if you want to stay in Bratislava it's definetely a good option!

I liked my stay here. The Hostel is clean, the beds are very confortable, the location is pretty well in the city, close to the castle, and there is free internet.

Only bad points: no towels for shower, that is not really nice when you have to take your wet towel away with you when you live the hostel.

Stayed here with my friend in July 2013.
The hostel is clean and has lockers which are big enough to fit travel rucksacks in.
The staff are friendly and willing to help, there is also a board in the common room with details of top attractions,restaurants, bars etc which is very helpful.

The breakfast is basic but nice. only bad point is the lack of plug sockets to charge phones etc, thankfully i was travelling with a friend so we shared the same one.
