Hostel Downtown Backpacker’s is located in Bratislava’s one of the busiest areas. It’s truly a great hostel for backpackers & budget travelers.
I personally liked the location of Hostel Downtown Backpacker’s because it is not very far from the main square. The old city, historical parts & sights are within walking distance & can easily be covered. It’s approximately 1.5 km away from the main train station & there is a direct bus going from the station to the hostel’s location.
Hostel Downtown Backpacker’s staff is really friendly. They showed me a lot of sight & how to reach them via map. Also, they are ready to go to any length to make your stay comfortable. Don’t forget to take their recommendations if you want to explore Bratislava like a local.
The beds are comfortable, rooms are spacious & every bed has its own locker. Blankets, bedsheets, pillow & pillow covers are provided. You just have to put them on. They do not charge anything extra for these things. I personally liked the bed because its HUGE.
You will sleep peacefully here because the rooms & passages are generally quiet. People do not make much noise (in hostel & in Bratislava overall).
The kitchen of Hostel Downtown Backpacker’s is small. The usability of it is really high though. There are mostly all kinds of utensils, electric kettles, oven & fridge. When I stayed, some guests did not clean the utensils properly hence some were really dirty. That’s not really the hostel’s fault though.
Alternatively, if you do not want to cook, they have a nice restaurant on the ground floor where you can eat breakfast, lunch and/or dinner at really cheap prices. They also have a bar which stays open till late night. There are some welcome shots for guests as well. 😉
There are many complimentary services that you can avail at Hostel Downtown Backpacker’s. Wi-Fi, parking, tea-coffee, city maps, luggage room are just some of them. They also offer guided tours, bike rentals & international calling at nominal rates.
If you are looking for a hostel near the central area, close to the train station, bus station & all sightseeings (and in budget), Hostel Downtown Backpacker’s is the best choice.
