Me and my friend Karen had three nights at the hostel. To be honest we chose it a bit late and randomly, but we were extremely satisfied with the choice. At Riverside you meet the friendliest staff in the heart of old town, just next go the river. The rooms are nice, bright and clean. We had the dormitory with... More

I stayed here for one night in Feb and really enjoyed my stay. The hostel has a really nice relaxed atmosphere. There are loads of books to read and games to play on the ps3 in the reception area. The room was clean and had a river view. Each bed has its own locker with a key. The shared bathroom... More

Nice, helpful staff. An edible breakfast. Totally clean. The internet is good. The location is excellent and many rooms look over the river. It is noisy as there are bars around and many rooms come of the common room (there's a curfew but it's not stuck to). I probably wouldn't stay here if I was travelling on my own but... More

The view from our room was great. It was right in the center of old town. The staff was not the most friendly people I have ever met but they got the job done. The room was small- as to be expected but over all comfortable. The decor of the hostel was cozy and warm. They had a lot of... More

It was best hostel I've ever stayed. Clean, nicely decorated. Common room - you sit down and relax. Stuff is great, they are not telling you what you have to do, what you can not do, you're not intruder - You are the guest! They really know the city and always have some tips. Definitely recommend!!

Definitely the best! Super clean, best location, great staff, good beds, perfect! You have a great view of the beautiful river and stepping out of the front door, you are in the heart of the main street with the arches from the river. I had a great time everyday, the main cool student pubs are 1 minute walk. It is... More

Amazinh hostel. Location is great right in the middle of all the attractions and directly at the river. Rooms and the whole hostel itself are brand new and spotless clean. Beds are very comfortable and big lockers provided for free! Staff was very helpful and friendly (e.g. no problem to store luggage or to take a shwoer after check out).... More

I chose this hostel for its location and I was not disappointed, you just cannot get any better. It's in the very historical center, 3 sec from the Dlugi square (that leads to the Dluga street), and by the water which was really nice. 15 minutes from the train station by feet and very easy to find. The hostel is... More

I have read a number of reviews on this hostel before booking it. The hostel was very easy to find, it is opposite the five star Radisson Blu. The location was simply prefect, facing the river. . The hostel was very clean, no shoes allowed. Good wifi-and three internet for guest use. Breakfast is fairly simple but for the price... More
