Not a Shithole, But Only Spend 1 Night
We got to Bratislava late in the afternoon, so as soon as we got into our dorm we had showers and went exploring into the old town. We were both surprised at how nice Bratislava is (although the walk from the train station was a bit dodgy with a Kurwa guy).
We just wandered around old town for a while, looking at all the nice buildings and restaurants. We looked up a good restaurant and went there for a 5EU meal, it was okay but it was nice to have salad again. We then walked through the random Italian markets before heading back to the hostel.
We got woken up pretty early in the morning, around 7 by the Spanish girls in our room. So we just went to Tesco to get a cheap breakfast and again, wandered around Old Town for about 1.5 hours (nothing is really open until after 10am). We went back to the hostel to check out and then headed out for lunch. We found a small food stall and got some pulled pork sandwiches.
After walking around the city again, we got bored and headed back to the Hostel to do some bookings. There was a stag party in the common area, so we had to listen to 25 Spanish guys yelling and drinking for 2 hours before we could leave for our bus.
We got to the main bus station to catch the bus to Budapest with Regiojet/StudentAgency. We randomly bumped into some people we met in Zdiar along the trail, very weird.
Regiojet / StudentAgency is really nice. They have TVs, although they have less left room than Flixbus and WiFi only works in Czech Republic.
Apart from the cafes/shops and restaurants, there isn’t much to do in Bratislava. It’s a nice place to have a stopover but that’s it.
