The place was very welcoming. Good beds,shower reception, kitchen. I have no complains about the place. It's near by the old centre town and there're good places to eat near by. I have no complains about the place.

I spent 4 months backpacking around Europe, and stayed in dozens of hostels. hostel Blues was in the top 5 best places I stayed. Excellent location right near tram stops, nice, clean, large rooms with large lockers, and the staff was excellent. Make sure you take part in cooking class night.

Lovely staff. Well organised. Tidy. Good security. Comfy beds and nice warm rooms. Well located. The only thing is that it would be nice to have breakfast too... But in summary I think this hostel is excellent and I absolutely recommend it. 😀

Everything was perfect during my stay in this hostel. Very well located, good facilities, the rooms have big lockers, the shower have good water pressure. The staff are always friendly and extremely helpful, always smiling and concerned about your stay. I definitely recommend this hostel to everyone who is planning to go to Bratislava.

The hostel is quite nice and the staff are impecable. Super friendly and helpfull. The room is quite big,and the view was good. The only bad thing is only one bathroom per floor between two rooms with 12-16 people which is clearly not enough.

At arrival this girl Christy (I think) was really taking her time to explain the hostel's perks and like all of Bratislava's hotspots. I chose for a mixed room for 6 people and directly made friends to spend te evening with! The room had an direct visual on the castle and the memorial statue as well. After the first night,...

Dear guest, I am really sorry that you've left our place with this feeling. Our staff, as stated in other reviews, really try to do their best to make everybody feels comfortable.

Staff was very helpful. The rooms were devided in different apartments at each floor. At walking distance of the centre. The private room was a little bit too small, bur very ok. Near public transportation for the airport.
