Bratislava is the capital of the Slovak Republic. It's the center of business and education (with several universities), as well as the Slovak city with the most cultural and public institutions. The city has a lovely pedestrian zone in its historic center which is juxtaposed with massive communist housing blocks across a futuristic bridge over the Danube. You may enjoy taking in this extremely juxtaposed city from the castle, which is fittingly a very communist reconstruction of the city's past. The city is further known for its cheap yet hearty gastronomy and Slovak pub culture. Don't overlook the monuments in this city, many are quirky relics of the Czechoslovakian era.
Bratislava hostels are located mostly around the pedestrian city-center or just a few blocks outside the pedestrian zone. Though there are many choices, it's good to note security in choosing a place to stay. Some hostels in Bratislava have too little security and thieves have taken note, though there are also many good hostels in Bratislava. The few hostels near the Presidential Palace are particularly good, in terms of security, as well as for getting into town by train or plain (as the airport bus goes to the main train station) since they are between the center and the station. Those arriving by bus could look for a place on the west side of the center, though be leery of poor security reviews. If coming from Vienna consider that trains to Hlavna Stanica (Bratislava Central) go to the main part of town and those to Bratislava Petržalka stop among the markets and malls in the communist-built suburb.

Bratislava Travel Tips & Suggestions
It's a small and cosy city, beautiful, and with a "village" essence. Things are very cheap! It's small so everything is reachable by a short walk! There are nice Slovakian people! There's not enough party -- even Bratislava inhabitants say their city is really boring! I would recommend visiting the city, though.
Bratislava is indeed a rather dull, boring city -- becoming more and more like a non-place inhabited and frequented by people who found a new religion called consumerism. Not to mention the "Partyslava" tourists and expats who would vote for this city.
— JR, Bratislava
Bratislava is a relatively uneventful and boring city. I probably wouldn't come back again.
Bratislava is a perfect place for cheap holidays! It's a quite nice and picturesque city with very friendly and pure people. They have great and very cheap food. Just great!
Everyone should come to Bratislava once in a lifetime if only to remind yourself how lucky you are to live in the West.
My tip for Bratislava would be to take your time looking around the city and enjoy the cafe culture of the city. The old castle deserves a walk up to as well as the oldest church in Bratislava - looks creepy though!! I found the food to be very good while the prices are amoung some of the lowest in Central Europe.
Bratislava is a great little city. It's extremely compact, and it's full of people relaxing and drinking in outdoor cafes. Good luck finding good accommodation though...
