Patio Hostel Reviews

Good place

Really nice hostel. Well located, good services (cleaning, reception). Free washing machine is a plus. It had everything i could ask for from a hostel. Basic, clean, and efficient.

Clean, friendly and helpful staff

the location of the hostel is good. main restaurants, shops, big tesco nearby but it is difficult to find (the very first time) because there is only a small sign indicating the direction. the staff is helpful and friendly. it is also clean. free laundry, a number of free computers, free tea bags.


Patio Hostel is a decent hostel with a nice courtyard where they have BBQs every evening for a small fee. It also has a bar in the basement for anyone wanting to have a few drinks and meet some people. There was no noise coming from the bar, either, that could make having a good night's sleep an issue. The staff were helpful, telling us about a free walking tour that was offered in town, and giving us a map and an explanation.

The Location

The hostel is located fairly central, near enough to the bus station, and a short bus ride (with one transfer) from the airport. Transportation is pretty easy and very cheap in Bratislava, so it's easy to get around. The hostel is located through an alley off the main street, so you have to pay attention or you could miss it. The alley isn't the nicest, quite rundown with lots of smelly garbage dumpsters. It is also a short, fifteen-minute walk from all the main sites, the Castle, the Old Town, several restaurants, and a Tesco grocery store. We recommend taking the free walking tour with Be Free Tours, which can help you get your bearings right away upon arrival; the quality of this particular tour is excellent.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The rooms are great, with single beds instead of bunks, which is always a plus. There are also lockers and a fan. Beds are very comfortable and the room is a good size. There is only one bathroom and two showers per floor, and this isn't too much of a problem. The cleanliness of the bathrooms and showers is average.

Common Spaces

The common spaces in the hostel are its nicest factor -- there is a courtyard, a TV room, a laundry room, and a bar in the basement. The courtyard is nice, with several places to sit and plants to make it homey. The nightly BBQs are a great place to meet people and get some food. There is also a lounge with a TV and DVD player, where a few people gather to watch TV, surf the internet, and chat. Also, the bar in the basement seems cheap and a great place to grab a few drinks with friends. There are kitchens on each floor, but they are minuscule, and we wouldnt recommend cooking in them. The food in Bratislava is excellent and very cheap -- enjoy a dinner out instead. There are mini fridges, which could be useful for snacks.


Overall, this is a good place to stay as it is centrally located and relatively inexpensive, with a comfortable place to sleep and common places to meet some fellow travelers. Bratislava is a lovely city, and this is a great base from which to check it all out!

Great place!

It has everything included! It was one of the best hostels i've stayed in. In fact I think it was a major in the city. When the entire city was closed the hostel provides you your own party! You can meet really nice people and have fun without leaving the hostel. Besides, it has free internet, laundry room, and a kitchen in every floors.

Great place

Really enjoyed my stay here. Staff was very friendly. The facilities were adequate and clean. Had free dinner the first night I was there which was quite nice. Good location in the city. Would recommend this place if you hit up Bratislava.


No fun.

Despite three sets of looked doors. The rooms were broken into, a bunch of valuables stolen while everyone slept. Makes you wonder who it could have been. Filling a complaint with the police was hellish. The place was utterly basic otherwise and not much fun.


Excellent Location

Everything is within walking distance. Friendly and helpful receptionist.

This is the worst experience I ever had with online booking ever. I booked the twelve-people dorm two months ahead, repeatedly asked if any payment in advance should be made, received no no no everything is perfect it's confirmed. Couple days before leaving for desired vacation I received an e-mail in which they are canceling my booked room because someone came and paid in the spot for the rooms! And all that with no apology or offering of alternative hostel, rooms, anything! How is it possible to pay for booked rooms? If their management is like this irresponsible and user unfriendly I can only imagine what does the hostel look like.
