Two American students, Josh and Paxton, are sampling the delights of Holland, whilst backpacking round Europe with an Icelandic friend, when someone advises them that if they want some real fun, they should head over to Slovakia and try one of the Hostel's there.
Notwithstanding, they duly head on over to Eastern Europe and find a nice looking Hostel in the Slovakian town of Bratislava. After checking in, they can't believe their luck. It seems virtually all the girls there are lusting after them, and they are only too happy to indulge in the party atmosphere.
They soon realise something's amiss, when their Icelandic friend Oli (Eythor Gudjonson) disappears, apparently gone off with a Japanese girl. Whilst his sudden departure proves little more than odd, the real mystery is why the Japanese girl went with him and left her friend Kana (Jennifer Limb) behind.
But then when Josh goes missing, Paxton realises something is definitely not right. Checking things out further they find the town is hiding a deadly secret, and a place where anything can be bought for a price...
Directed by Eli Roth (Cabin Fever) I was quite impressed with the levels of blood and violence in this, some scenes of which will certainly make you cringe, despite retaining a sense of fear, dread and suspense. Gore fans will love it, though it doesn't do the Slovak tourist board any favours.
