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,... More

I was travelling with my friend, and we spent one night in blues hostel. We were two 20 years old girls travelling for the first time. We stayed in a shared bedroom and went to bed early, before the pub crawl group came to sleep. We woke up to a terrible noise and someone was rocking our bed!! We were... More

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. But once you opt to stay in shared room you need to accept that there might be somebody not behaving according to your standards. We try to manage... More

The room was warm and clean with an ensuite bathroom. I would have no problem returning or recommending it to others. The staff were helpful and friendly offering what information... More

This is a lovely hostel with everything we needed. Staff were very friendly and could answer any queries we had about places to see or eat. Kate in particular was a breathe of fresh air. Location of hostel is only a short walk from Old Town

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.

Hostel Blues Bratislava. We were here 10/10-12/10. The hostel is an ideal place for a few days if you are travelling around Europe or over for football reasons like we were. Each floor is named after a different city. There was 3 of us and we were in London C a 10 bed dorm. The lift is questionable so I... More

The Hostel was in a great place and they took security pretty seriously. It was easy to get to from the tram (the trams are off to the side of the train station, down stairs), and even walking to the train station itself wasn't a terrible walk. The location is right outside the old town, and the staff was helpful.... More

Only stayed one night so this won't be a comprehensive review. The hotel has all the necessary facilities for a backpacker. Bed light and plug, lockers, luggage storage, free maps and tourist information, sell beers and other drinks, common area with some games and instruments, free computers, wifi and printing, and though the location is not the best it is...

Fun place, clean, nice staff. We had an amazing time here and had so much fun. The location is amazing and the room was very nice! They let us play the guitar and sing throughout the night and catered to all of our needs.
