I really liked this hostel even though I wasn't expecting much from it. I think what I liked most was that it had the feeling of an old 'traditional' kind of hotel. There is a small bar area downstairs, which is also where the reception is. The staff are friendly enough, and the drinks at the bar are very cheap. There is also a really nice kitchen upstairs where a lot of guests tend to gather around dinner time to cook. The rooms and bathrooms are basic, but this really fostered a community feeling amongst guests, which were a very international mix when I stayed here.

I liked this hostel and it definitely is made for young people. You meet a lot of different people from all over the world. It's a bit loud sometimes, so don't forget your earplugs. The rooms are all called like several artists, like Picasso, Klimt, Mucha, Van Gogh, etc. and they are painted with works of these artists. The lounge is very nice and so is the Bar / Restaurant of the hostel.

I didn't stay at this hostel but I did spend more time in the bar here than I did in my own hostel - it's a pleasant little bar, all wood and old charm which is obviously filled with other backpackers.

I spent most of the time propped up at the bar talking to the barman and passing travellers.

I wanted my three days in Bratislava to pass as quickly as possible because I had been backpacking all summer and I was meeting my girlfriend, a Hungarian, in Budapest. Downtown Backpackers Hostel managed to make my experience of Bratislava pleasant, if not exactly memorable. The hostel maintains a rare blend of low price and good style. The colorful rooms with exposed brick and murals are easy on the eyes. It's also the kind of hostel where you're likely to meet cool people to hit the town with.
