Solo female travellers should opt for the classic capsule room with 4-beds. This room has independent capsules.

For ultimate privacy, there are three ‘business rooms’ with a stylish en-suite.

We really like the common lounge and fully equipped kitchen.

But wait until you see the all-you-can-eat breakfast! Forget cold toast and jam, this is a feast.

Reception is open 24/7 and there’s a cheeky little bar here to buy refreshments.

Other perks include high-speed Wi-fi, AC throughout the property and discounts on local coffee bars and restaurants.

2. Chill House

The name of this hostel is enough to make you feel at home, isn’t it?

Chill House is modern, spacious and home to just 4 different rooms.

These includes 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 ambience.

It’s honesty like walking in to someone’s home, except it’s bigger and there’s a sauna.

Yes that’s right: for a small fee you can enjoy a great time in the hostel sauna!

Oh and there’s more:

  • Free breakfast, tea & coffee
  • Snacks & alcoholic drinks on sale
  • High speed Wi-fi across the property
  • Garden w/ BBQ

As Hostelgeeks we love nothing more than a fabulous shared space.

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 real chic feel about the place and tons of bright light fills 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 to the city centre.

What about cheapest hostels in Bratislava?

Of course, there are always cheap hostels.

We think, it’s not worth it to go with the cheapest hostel out there.


The difference is usually 1-2€ ($1-2) per night, and a lot of amenities are not included. This can be breakfast or linen.

However, if you are traveling on a shoe-string budget and you wanna save every penny, there are ways to find the cheapest places in Bratislava.

  1. Open Hostelworld with full list of budget places to stay in Bratislava

Best Hostels in Bratislava for Solo Travellers?

What is seriously the best hostel in Bratislava for solo-travellers?

For the female solo travellers we vote Boutique Capsule Hostel CHORS. The female only dorms are out of this world thanks to the modern, private capsules.
