This hostel is not big on the slick amenities that you seem to find everywhere these days but the great staff, fantastic location, and affordable price more than make up for it. The welcome was great with the front desk doing a walk through of the hostel and providing a city orientation and suggestions for activities. The staff was always organizing things and inviting everyone to come along. Everything was clean but the furniture was a bit ad hoc (think college apartment).
My favorite part was the location. Right in the heart of the old town with a lovely square in front. The square had a bubbling fountain and a little souvenir market. Everyday there was a street performer playing a traditional shepherds instrument you could hear it from the room. If you are staying in Bratislava staying in Old Town is the only way to go.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Wild Elephants welcomes you to the only hostel in Bratislava run by backpackers for backpackers. As some would say, 'mi casa es su casa', you are welcome to chillax in the heart of the historical city center. Located literally 10 steps from the Main Square of Bratislava in a quiet alley next to a small fountain underneath big trees. ... more less
