Wild Elephants is the only hostel in the historical city center and the only hostel managed by travelers for travelers. Small in size but big in passion.
WILD April - Hi everyone, spring is here, great sunny weather and new events like bridge jumping and camp fires on the river. So far the town is not crowded by tourists so get the most from travelling in the best time of year and come chill with the Elephants!
Welcome to Bratislava, also known as the beauty on the Danube. Our city has great potential for you to chill out in a relaxed, laid-back town. As opposed to cities like Vienna, Budapest or Prague, here you will find it easy to circumnavigate, find narrow allies with picturesque scenes, small tea and coffee houses and much more.
The Wild Elephants welcomes you to the only hostel in Bratislava run and built by backpackers for backpackers. As some would say, 'mi casa es su casa', you are welcome to chillax in the heart of the historical city center. Located literally 10 steps from the Main Square of Bratislava in a quiet alley next to a small fountain underneath big trees (cut down early march, replacement in may :) ).
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 5-6 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 narrow streets. We have free high speed 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 always improving the place and always welcome creative people with great ideas, so open-minded people are more then welcome!
We do not accept stag parties/birthday parties and similar groups of guys that fly in to Bratislava just to get drunk, whatever the number of people is
!Groups over 6 are also not allowed!
Kids who cannot handle alcohol and people under 18 are not welcomed and cannot stay here.
We love everyone else though ;)
