Spacious dorm rooms and big lockers, comfy beds, large kitchen and a massive breakfast included in the price. Staff was friendly, helpful and informative. It takes under 10 minutes to walk to the Old Town, about 25 from the bus/train station. A grocery store (Lidl) and tram stop are located right across the street. The hostel is hidden behind another... More

Terrible noise from the common room till 4 am during my first night there, on the second day something much worse - at 2 am some new people came to the dormitory where we were sleeping, they turned all the lights on, opened a bottle of whiskey and started a party. No reaction of the staff, just told me to... More

Me and 3 friends stayed here for 2 nights whilst staying in Gdansk. On arrival it was dark and the location of the hostel did appear a little daunting. However once inside it seemed friendly and welcoming. In daylight the hostel looks completely different from the outside. It is about a 10 minute walk from the town centre. The room... More

Arriving at night I wasn't sure what to make of this place and its surrounds, but by daylight (and once you know your way around a bit) it's a great place to stay. I thought the rooms were incredibly cheap (I stayed in a six-bed dorm) but still everything was really clean, there were plenty of toilet/shower facilities and the... More

I spent in Old Town Hostel more when a week during summer and I really enjoyed it. My room was nice and spacious, whole hostel was really clean and breakfast was perfect. I'm always a little bit affraid of eating in hostels because I keep healthy diet. It appears they serve a lot of vegetables, fruits, eggs, cheese, ham -... More

I traveled in the off season and got a four bed room to myself, so that may skew my perception a bit. I was in a basement room, which smelled a bit moldy. Although the walls were a bit thin, as are most hostels, the beds were comfortable and I still managed to get a restful night’s sleep. They had... More

First impressions of this hostel was that it is in a fairly rough part of town - apart from that, the actual hostel is great. We received a friendly welcome from the staff and they were happy to give advice on what to see etc. Breakfast was included although the kitchen is very small - perhaps up to 8 people... More

This hostel is 15 minutes walking from the beautifull Gdansk old town, not very difficult to find if you have a citymap. The accomodation is quite nice, we have very normal bunker beds and also very simple single beds, all of them functional, resting in a nice carpet floor. I felt good in the rooms and safe, as every safety... More
