In the past years several new hostels grew in the centre of Bratislava, which offer accommodation also in shared rooms, a common kitchen at your disposal, dayrooms and often also internet usage. So they enable especially for the young, who travel with a thin purse and a backpack on their backs, to enjoy the advantages of an accommodation directly in the centre and concurrently meet similar travellers and exchange their adventurous experience.
The simple accommodation style, which the traditional tourist lodging houses provide, is recommended mainly for those, who do not plan to stay in the facility for longer than just for bed. These services are often used by groups of young sportsmen or tourists, who do not care for luxury and want to be close to nature, so that they can dedicate themselves to training or hiking.
In the summer season the offer of this type of accommodation is enlarged by budget priced student dormitories. Those can be found in larger towns.
