Check-In and Check-Out: The average check-in time is from 15:00 (3 pm), while the Check Out time is before 11:00 (11 am). Hostels usually offer luggage storage in case you arrive earlier or leave later. Make sure you check if luggage storage is free or if there is an extra cost.
These are our favorite hostels in Bratislava. We want to make your life even easier, so we put all accommodations on a map for you. We even added our own tips for favorite restaurants, things to see, and more.
We really like how large and diverse their rooms are: you can pick from private double, triple or quadruple rooms to female-only dorms or mixed dorms with 8 beds (these rooms even feature seating areas where you can interact with fellow travelers during the day).
This Bratislava hostel prides itself on its social atmosphere thanks to facilities designed to promote interactions between guests (mainly their common lounge area).
Although the staff is super friendly and accommodating, the reception is sometimes unattended, so inform them of your departure plan or if you need any help or luggage storage as soon as you see them.
One negative thing about this hostel is that there is a club nearby, and the noise can sometimes be annoying on the weekend, but travelers are always provided with earplugs here.
Location: One of the best locations for Bratislava hostels, right in the middle of the city center. Shops and restaurants surround the area, and you’ll find St. Michael’s Gate across the street, leading you into the historical center and the heart of Bratislava’s nightlife.
The hostel is on the edge of the pedestrian zone downtown, but you’ll also find Hozovo Suqare nearby, which is one of the main public transport hubs in the city.

These include en-suite private, balcony private, triple room, and 6-bed dorm.
More importantly, the social spaces have been designed with nothing but a homely, chill ambiance. It’s honestly like walking into someone’s home, except it’s bigger, and there’s a sauna.

Free breakfast, tea & coffee
Snacks & alcoholic drinks on sale

The living lounge at Chill House is easily the main reason this is one of the best hostels in Bratislava. It has all the essentials like a flat-screen TV, music system and tables perfect for working on.
Beautiful modern design and up-cycled furniture create a chic feel, and tons of bright light fill the space.
Location: a calm, quiet area on a hill, 5 minutes from the tram stop, which will take you to all the top sights in the area. It’s around 20 minutes from the city center.
