ABOUT MLYNSKA DOLINA

Mlynska dolina is the biggest student agglomeration in Central Europe. There is no such a concentration of students in Prague or Vienna or another major city of Central Europe. And this creates the special atmosphere, a distinct liveliness of this area. It lives here at midnight every day of the week during the school year. The majority of the people living here are young students. However, summers are naturally calmer, as students have their holidays.

Mlynska dolina is located approximately 10 minutes from the centre and 15 minutes from the train station. Several public transportation buses operate here including 31 and 39  taking you directly to the city center (Zochova bus stop). Night connection is secured thanks to the night bus N31 which is very convenient.

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?

This is probably the cheapest accommodation in all Bratislava. No kidding! The price starts from 3.50 € per night per person. And in case you book your stay for more than 4 nights, the price per night gets lower. Students but also tourists can get a room here during the summer, starting from 1st July 2018 until 31st August 2018. Booking online is possible here.

This type of accommodation is ideal for:

  • those who want to save on a room as much as possible,
  • those who need a room just to sleep in and plan to spend maximum time exploring the city instead,
  • those who are used to backpackers’s travel style,
  • those who want to try how Slovak students live.

We do not recommend it for:

  • families travelling with children or pets,
  • those who prefer more comfortable type of accommodation.

We love this area especially for its greenery – it makes you feel calm and relaxed. As for the buildings and rooms themselves, count that they are really older, so be ready for that. The tremendously low price is what should be motivating here.
