Nice, clean hostel in a fairly central location. The walled garden area at the back is nice for having a beer and hanging out. The staff are very friendly and know some cool local spots, so it's worth asking them for their advice. I liked the free beer on arrival, and the breakfast snack-packs for €2 were a nice alternative to the breakfast buffets in other hostels. Bratislava itself is a nice city, and you could see it all in a day or so, and I would recommend Patio hostel to a friend.

Room Tip: If you don't like climbing stairs, the lower floors are preferable, as the elevator is extremely...

When we got there the welcome reception consisted of getting a key, being told which room we were in (without any specifici directions), and a free beer. Compared with Hostel Blues across the road where we stayed for the second two nights of our trip, this was a little weak.

The room was basically furnished, with twin beds that we pushed together, two table lamps and a wardrobe with no clothes hangers in it. The beds were creaky and feeble.

The common area seemed pretty ok. There was a television in one corner and some seating around it. Along one wall were some computers with internet access available to guests free of charge. There was a bar in the hostel. Though I think we were there a little too far from peak season to expect this to be packed.

There was also a very creepy combover guy stalking around the place. It looked kind of like he lived and worked there because he was cleaning ''The piss'' off a toilet seat one time. But we could never figure it out.

We enjoyed our two nights here a lot. Staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms were very clean and nice. There was a decent bar and a nice garden type area outside. Good location only 10 minutes walk to the town.

I stayed in this hostel for only one night (weekday) while doing business in Bratislava. I was impressed at the friendliness of the staff and the welcome beer that I enjoyed. The room, restrooms, kitchen area, and linens were very clean -- a plus. Since it was a weeknight, the hostel only had the minimal noise of travelers enjoying their stay. All in all, I think I will stay at this hostel again -- and I definitely recommend this hostel to others.

We stayed in the deluxe double ensuite and the room was nice. The prices are much lower than in normal hostels so it is good value for money. The rooms desperately need some kind of air conditioning as the tiny fan doesn't really make much of a difference. It's a good location just a 5 min walk from the centre square and a short bus trip from the main train station.

This hostel was so noisy I could hardly sleep for 5 nights. The first two nights there was a disco downstairs pumping out dance music until 430am, plus there were people coming in drunk at all hours screaming and shouting. The walls are paper thin, which does not help.

I certainly won´t be coming back, and if you intend to sleep during your stay then steer well clear of this place.
