Stayed here for 2 nights with my partner. Arrived at the hostel location is 5 min walk from the train station which was good for us as our bags are heavy. However the location it is in is very rough sex shops on every corner, graffiti everywhere and complete weirdos walking around its about 3km to the old town. When we walked in to the hostel it looked fairly decent we arrived there about 2pm we tried to check in however but was told our room was not ready and hadn't been cleaned and was asked to wait in the common room. We were told 20 mins to an hour. After an hour we went back to reception where the lady was outside having a fag (classy) with the cleaners we asked to check in she said 15 mins then changed her mind saying the rooms ready now. The room itself was pretty good it was more of an apartment had a private bathroom, kitchen, sofas, tv and a little attic bedroom + a balcony. The bed let it down as it was just a mattress on the floor and not many plugs worked. We also had alot of ants in the hallway/ bathroom. After we got settled we went down to reception and asked where the best place to get food was we got a short reply back. The staff here seem really uninterested and they do not give a s**t. We asked to rent a dvd player as it rained the whole time here and we cant understand solvak tv + being 2 girls we did not feel safe wondering the streets of this backwards place, however the dvd player had been stolen along with the xbox so old mr bean it was. The hot water was poor, we could only have 1/2 a shower as you had to wait for the water to warm up which took forever. The radiators didn't work either. I will not be returning to Bratislava and definitely not to Freddie next to mercury.
