Wild Elephants Hostel Reviews

Wild Elephants Hostel is a great hostel for both solo and group travelers. The hostel provides guests with a clean and comfortable stay, with great amenities allowing guests to relax and make new friends. The hostel makes it easy for those who stay to fully experience Bratislava and staff are always friendly and willing to help. There is plenty of information available regarding things to do and see in the area and the hostel recommends a decent walking tour of the town.

The Location

The hostel is a short walk from the main bus station but can also be reached by taxi. Once passing through the Old Town, Wild Elephants is easily found, with a welcoming sign at the front of the building. Easy directions lead visitors inside the building to the reception where staff welcome guests. In regard to convenience stores, shopping centres, bars, and restaurants, the hostel is very well located. The heart of the city is at the doorstep of the hostel, which makes it easy for guests to immerse themselves in the Slovakian experience.

Rooms and Bathrooms

There are several dorm rooms of varying size within the hostel. The dorm rooms are set up with bunk beds for guests as well as one locker per bed. The beds are comfortable and include linen and a pillow. The dorm rooms are well lit and relatively spacious. Within the fifteen-bed dorm room there is one bathroom ("private" for the fifteen-bed dorm guests only). It has a shower (with curtain and hot water), a toilet, and a basin. This bathroom is cleaned daily and kept tidy at all times.

Common Spaces

The hostel provides guests with a common kitchen (also offering family dinners for an additional -- but very reasonable -- cost), with sufficient kitchenware and utensils, a fridge and freezer, stovetop, and spacious dining table. There are also common rooms on the upper level of the hostel -- a bar and several other "hang out" spaces. These areas are kept tidy and cleaned daily.


Overall, this hostel gives good vibes for those who stay and provides guests with a very convenient place to experience Bratislava both day and night. The hostel is very good at facilitating group activities and gives guests plenty of opportunity to make lots of new friends.

• MAIN Train Station (Hlavn Stanica, Bratislava Hl. St.) - First walk out of the station and down the road following the tram tracks until you see the tram stop. Take tram number 1 until Central station. When you hop off, walk to the right until you see a very green and big square with some statues (that's SNP Nmestie). Turn right on Potov Street and you'll see at the left corner 1-Day shop, then Vinopolitan, and then us, the New Wild Elephants hostel :D
• PETRZALKA Train Station (Some trains from Vienna) - Bus 80/93/94 (direction Kollarovo Nam., Hlavan Stanica or Blumentl, respectively), get off at the stop Zochova. Turn left from the bus, walk in the direction the bus IS going for 20m, and turn right, you are walking between a big ugly building on your left and an old monastery on your right. At the end of the street, you will see tram tracks, follow them to the right. To your left you'll see a square with some stone statues, and on the other side a cafe, a church, a store called Vinopolitan, and us in between. This should not take more than 10-15 minutes, in case you are not at the hostel by this time, just call us.
• MAIN Bus Station (AS Mlynske Nivy) - find Bus 210, leaving from in front of the bus terminal all the way to the Main Train Station (last stop). From here follow the directions from the Main Train Station.
• AIRPORT (Letisko) - Bus 61, leaving directly from in front of the arrivals terminal all the way to the Main Train Station. From here follow the directions from the Main Train Station
• In case you decide to take a TAXI, you should agree on the price before you enter and it should not be more than 10EUR from anywhere in town, except from the airport, which should not be more than 15EUR. Better to use Uber or Bolt, they are usually cheaper :D
• Arriving late at night? The door will be closed, just ring the bell on the right side of the door and reception will come to you soon.
• PS: Do not come here by car, we are in the pedestrian zone and your car will be towed...
