10/10 Exceptional

Great hostel, with a friendly host
The room was clean and pretty comfortable, although a slightly thicker duvet would have been appreciated, it was warm though and the showers were especially good for both water pressure and temperature. Towels and ear plugs are provided in case anyone needs to know! Great local knowledge and very informative on check in. Rado also recommend that we do the free city tour (11:30am and 2pm every day) and this was brilliant. One thing to be aware of is that if you are out late you will have to buzz security to let you into the hostel and the front gate is locked at some point between 10pm and 1am. I'd definitely recommend staying here, fantastic location, great value for money and overall a really pleasant stay.

One of the best hostels I have ever stayed at during my travels in dozens of countries! Go and see Rado - easily the best guy in all of Slovakia! He will take excellent care of you and all your needs! I was there as a digital nomad, so I needed perfect high speed wifi and a quiet space to conduct hours of video conference calls. Rado arranged a space for me so that I could work without interruptions. He also gave great city advice and I am so grateful for it! Hostel was super clean. Honestly these are the absolute most huge rooms I have ever seen in any hostel (or even hotel) anywhere! You will definitely not feel crowded here! Fabulous stay, highly recommended!

We had a great stay! It is a bit noisy from the street, as expected in a city! The location is perfect and the cost is excellent. We would definitely stay again.
