  • Bratislava is a small city so everything was walkable. The train station is 10 minutes away and you can be down at the Danube in 15 minutes. I did ask for directions at one point and rather than tell me the way they encouraged me to get a cab. I did walk and it didn't take long at all. The bar downstairs can mean it is quite noisy but the free shot helped with that. I couldn't work out how to lock the door to the room but a wrist band is required to get into the hostel from outside.

  • Decent location, nicely decorated art theme rooms and convenient bar downstairs. Could do with a few more shower rooms for when hostel is busy.

  • The unique selling point is the location - so central and only a 5min bus ride to the main station. The hostel which I had actually stayed in 7 years before but didn't realise when I booked this time is definitely for the younger set. It has a charm of its own but I found the stairway cluttered with beer barrels and electrical cables. It is not suitable for people with a disability as it is on several levels. The facilities are only just adequate and need refurbishing.
