A very good and nice hostel, with warm personnel and friendly atmosphere. On top of all these the hostel is next to river but in a central area. Just perfect for a trip for pleasure. Plus, the personnel is always willing to help and advice you regarding the city.

Riverside Hostel is nothing special but it's a good choice. The stuff is super friendly and helpful, they are glad to help if you have any questions and give advises about what to do during your stay. Breakfast is quite modest but it's nice to know there is coffee and something little available when you wake up. Rooms are very... More

The most amazing location you can imagine- overlooking the Motlawa river and literally a minute from the centre of Gdansk with all its clubs, pubs, bars and restaurants... The breakfast was simple, the hostel neat and tidy and the staff friendly and helpful - what more can you ask for?! 24h reception and check in a big bonus if you... More

the only advantage of this place is its address. close to the river and old town, located in a very quiet street. Unfortunately, it was dirty, the bathrooms were old, smelly, dark and dirty. Staff was unwelcoming and a bit rude. Wouldn't stay there again

I think it's a nice hostel in reasonable price in the heart of the lovely Gdańsk. The service was VERY friendly and I also like the atmosphere in the hostel. Breakfast was included in the price. Maybe it wasn't very varied. The kitchen is rather small, definitely relax area is bigger and better- there you can read books, watch movies... More

A decent hostel. Nice ambiance and perfect location. The rooms lacked ventilation. Though there are ceiling fans, I felt rooms were slightly suffocating. 3 showers and 2 toilets were ok. I would love to visit again only because of the location.

I stayed here on 2 separate nights during the Dominican festival at the end of July. On both occasions I stayed in the same room which had bunkbeds for 8 people. In our room there was a bathroom with a large shower, a toilet and a sink. The beds were decently comfy and bedding was provided free of charge. In... More

Had a lovely stay in for three nights at Riverside Hostel on way to Sopot and on way back too. Excellent location at the main square. A couple of rooms have the river view and some face the road. I preferred the room with the river view and with the larger windows. The view was great as you can see... More

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
