The location of Hill Hostel is just stunning. Nearby there's the most beautiful square of this town and a castle of 13th century (if I'm not mistaken). The service there is quite good, receptionists speak English well and try to give an answer to all of your questions. Suits are typical for hostels. In the evenings, you can just come... More

Hill Hostel has a great location just off the old market square in Poznan so many museums, restaurants, bars and attractions are only a short stroll away. We booked a double room with en suite bathroom (room 5 - the Cathedral Island Room) that was modern and clean. The only disadvantages were the very thin curtains so we awoke early... More

The lighting in the corridors and stairs is not automatic. This means that you need to walk along pitch black corridors groping along the walls to find the light switches (which switch off after about 10 seconds). Due to this I fell down some steps leading from the roof terrace to my room and twisted my ankle badly. I then... More

For the money, it was fine - in fact the room was no better or worse than the Ibis where we stayed the previous night. Hostel has small kitchen available as well as breakfast incuded in price (breakfast not as good as the... More

The room was dirty, but the bathroom was the most disgusting thing. It was broken, when I flush the toilet, the water overflood. The shower didn't work either, water goes everywhere. They didn't repaire it. Next day we found a cockroach! IT was the worst experience we ever had in a hostel. I do not recommend this place.
