The hostel entrance is situated in the back of an alley, during the night it is very dark and looks quite dangerous. The bathrooms are very weird and also quite dirty. The rooms are small, any person that moves disturbs everyone in the room. On the other hand, the receptionist are great, they are very polite and can give information... More

44 of us have recently had a 4 day stay at the Hostel. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. The rooms were reasonably clean and comfortable. Great location - walking distance to town centre and the Jewish Quarters. Great Vodka!

First thing you'll notice is the quite hidden entry of the hostel, which in a way is quite comforting. Don't be weirded out, it looks strange how you get inside, but once in you will be warmly welcomed by the person at the reception. Who will explain to you where everything is and how things work. Also you will notice... More

The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Even though we arrived hours before check in and left hours after check out, they allowed us to store our items. Free wifi and breakfast in the morning. Comfortable common room. Bar downstairs. Fantastic location - it's a 10 min walk to old town and is situated in the Jewish quarter. The rooms... More

Bar downstairs was great, really cheap alcohol, try the local Polish beers they range from £1-2 and Polish Vodka was great, far better than any Russian stuff! Really close to the centre of town and ther staff are really helpful at letting... More

The couch at the living room is very comfortable and we know about it because we arrived very early and had to wait until the check-in time. They are very flexible cause when leaving we needed to stay for a couple of hours there after the check-out time, and they accepted to have us gently. The rooms are nice, large... More

It was a great experience although I was travelling alone, I had many great chats with young and less young people from many countries (learning a lot from their life experience) and I had the opportunity to have great underground knowledge of the city thanks also to a great staff of really dinamic people. Good Bye Lenin Pub & Garden... More

Top hotel for a top shagger Standard of rooms decent, need more ventilation...6 boozy shaggers start smelling after a while. Cheap bar downstairs, good location for bringing birds back 10mins from square. Cleaners dont appreciate you falling asleep on the benches outside. Hostel staff excellent, and all for day sessions as well!! Top shagger out
