The location is prime but the upkeep of the hostel is a little shabby. Atmosphere was great, staff was incredibly friendly, only thing was that the room was a little dilapidated. Would recommend to travelers nonetheless!

The location of the hostel and staff are the best thing. The breakfast was ok for the price you pay (milk, cereals, cheese, bread, juice...). We had great time here, I recommend this hostel for young travellers who want to meet new people because there is big bar area.

It's really about the people. That's why you choose a hostel instead of a hotel. Particularly in Poland where private hotels are not much more expensive. The staff at the hostel was warm and inviting. Taz in particular was great at making everyone feel at home and wanting to socialize. Highly recommend this hostel and hope they can maintain the...

I have just returned to the UK from a four night stay at Good Bye Lenin and have had an incredible experience. Rather than list what you already know, I'd prefer to address some things that a small number of people have stated as negatives (because having left the hostel yesterday morning, it's apparent how ridiculous they are)! Cleanliness -... More

Checked in after 3pm and was told to wait 5 mins as the staff were changing shifts. Was then given my room key (double room,... More

I stayed there just for a couple of nights but had a great experience overall. Very complete breakfast and the accommodations are clean and comfortable. Nice people and great parties within the hostel.

We stayed here for one night and were very impressed. The hostel is clean and in a good location, and is good value considering that it includes breakfast. It also has good communal facilities and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and spacious.

I stayed here in summer for 3 nights and even when it was full I could get a decent night's sleep. I stayed in a room on the 3rd floor. The facilities are basic but clean and the wifi is fast. Staff are great and can organize tours for you easily.
