About Wild Elephants Hostel

The Wild Elephants Hostel is not just a cheap bed in a great location. We offer you an experience unlike any other. Our volunteers are backpackers who would like to involve you in various daily activities, cook you delicious dinners and take you for a wild night out in the best local venues of Bratislava.

The inclusive social environment we work on will easily make you a part of your new home away from home shared with our puppy and up to 50 of your future friends. We might NOT be fancy, newly furnished or even professional, but we love what we do and we share this love with everybody who seeks an open minded place to have fun and meet people.

We are right in the old town on the 2nd floor of a 200 years old historical building. Therefore we do not have an elevator, what we do have instead is a hip place with spacious common areas, artistic walls, well equipped kitchen, comfortable smoking area, table foosball, time machine, big banana room, etc.

Home rules (policies) to keep it fun and easy to socialize:

- Any kind of groups over 4 people are disallowed, even if they have separate reservations.
- Age restriction is from 18 to 45 years old.
- We do not accept stag, hen, birthday parties and similar kind of groups that fly in to Bratislava just to get drunk on their own.

We keep the right to cancel your reservation and immediately turn you away with no refunds if you violate our policies.

+ City tax is 1.70 euro per night per person and is NOT included (except students from 18 to 26 years old).

Accommodation Information

Our hostel is a experience unlike many others. We ARE NOT a cheap hotel, so if you are looking for one, write us an email and we will be grateful to send you a few tips. Here you find the complete opposite, especially the homelike atmosphere, where staff and guests form one bunch.This is why we prefer groups of less then 4 people because otherwise it is difficult socializing. The Wild Elephants are not about LCD or other amenities such as Xbox or Wii. It is about meeting travelers, socializing, cooking together, getting locals and visitors mixed up in bars and having the best beds, best staff, best location and best internet connection ;).

The hostel gives you the opportunity to explore the city just by walking out from the main entrance and getting lost in the surrounding narrow streets. We have free WIFI so you can continue doing the online social jazz, when not joining one of our activities.The best of all, our staff will do the best we can to make you feel at home, by offering different tours, movie nights, cooking events and all the enjoyable elephant activities. We mix hip eco-furniture with some rustic parts so when you crash on the couch you will feel like an elephant at home. We are real backpackers hostel so we are having only dorm rooms, but our property is big enough to find some spots and have privacy when needed :)

Location Information

Our location is without bullshit, THE location and cannot be beaten. Located in the pedestrian zone 30 seconds from the Main square! To get here from your arrival points you will need to use a tram or bus same as to every other hostel, but once you check-in you will need no public transportation, because you can reach everywhere just by walking. All the traditional restaurants, Bratislava Free Tours, theaters, bars, historical venues are in front, down the street or around the corner.

Cancellation Policy

Customers can cancel their reservation free of charge up to 1 day before arrival. After this date, charges will be applied by the property up to the first nights cost of the reservation, unless otherwise stated in the property’s conditions. Deposits paid are non refundable.
