Apart from in the summer season when University dorms open up, there is a shortage of budget accommodation in Bratislava. The tourist offices at the train station and in the center have information on most options - private homes, pensions, hotels and will reserve for you, 50sk charge. 30sk for students. (Information about student hostels is free).
At the train station you may be approached by people offering private rooms from 400sk, confirm the price and location, whether it includes breakfast, etc., before you go anywhere.
! Warning, If planning to visit at the end of June and the beginning of September - University student accommodation is NOT available and there are limited budget options. You should either reserve in advance or aim to get to the city early in the day to search for a place. The tourist office is a good starting point.
