“Great budget hostel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

A great low-budget hostel close to everything. I especially recommend Patio because of the following story: a small Roma theater group we consistently work with was recently discriminated against at another nearby hostel (when they showed up with a reservation for a performance in Bratislava, they were denied as soon as the management saw their ethnicity). Luckily, however, Patio Hostel then took the group in with open arms. I just found about this recently even though we've been staying at Patio for years; I'm happy to support a hostel that doesn't partake in blatant racist practice against the Roma (or anyone), and I think that others should do the same.

Room Tip: Request a room on the back side of the hotel if you want a full night sleep during on-season time/ T...

Nice little hostel, good location, really friendly staff, a nice common room, beds were comfortable and the rooms very nice. Nice garden and a full size fridge and small kitchen per half floor. Would recommend.

Bratislava was very much a stopover in our Eurotrip and we did not have high expectations with accommodation but this hostel was both great value for money, clean and in really close proximity to the Old Town- making it within stumbling distance from some of the local pubs, which really is a necessity given the availability of 1litre local beers for around 2Euro50. Each floor had a dining table and fridge, and with a LIDL 5 minute walk from the hostel its a great place to buy in snacks- (it's not like it is essential to save money in Bratislava however as the food and drink is very cheap). The only downside was the freezing cold showers, and slow check in but otherwise a great place to stay.

A really nice, clean hostel in a good location. Everything in the city centre is in walking distance and it is only a short bus ride from the train station. There is also a very large Tesco supermarket just across the road. The staff were all friendly and helped us find our way around. Our private twin room and shared bathroom were both good sizes and the bathroom was cleaned daily. Unlike some other places there were plenty of bathrooms and ours was only for the use of us and another triple room next door to us! The kitchen was a bit small with no oven, only a microwave and 2 small hobs, but it was fine for basic meals. There is also a bar in the basement (though it i snot noisy at all in the rooms), a laundry room, luggage storage, a common room and a lovely garden area where you can relax.

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...
