The Ginger Monkey

The Ginger Monkey Hostel has been set up by a couple of backpackers, in the beautiful village of Zdiar in the High Tatras Mountains, of Slovakia. Our charge includes everything, there are no other hidden costs, the breakfast and all day tea / coffee is included and we pay the local city tax. The Hostel is cosy, friendly and feels like a home away from home, it is quite small and so quite sociable. We have various dorms,and a large shared kitchen and lounge. It is a traditional building with all the comforts you have come to expect.

Locally there are a plethora of activities, in the winter there is skiing / snowboarding within walking distance, ice hockey, trekking, caving, walking our dog 'wally' and in the summer there is even more trekking, paint balling, cycling, climbing, skydivng and loads more. If this sounds to energetic you can simply chill out in the lounge read a book or gaze at the mountains whilst drinking tea. We have restaurants and bars close by so you can get your Slovakian food and beer fix no problem, at a very reasonable price.

Continuing on from Poprad gives you loads of choices for destinations as you can catch a train directly to Bratislava, Vienna, Prague, Budapest, Kosice (and then Krakow), and Munich. We have traveled around these places and can offer information advice and timetables for any onward journeys.
