This hostel is in a great location, and easy to get to with the bus stop only 5 minutes away and 10 minutes from the old town square. The owner was excellent and always very helpful with maps and full of useful information about tours and where to eat and what to see. Highly Recommended !!

A fantastic little hostel! I really enjoyed my stay there. The owner is brilliant, goes well above and beyond expectations to help you out with any info you need (transport, sights in Warsaw, Poland, whatever!). He runs the place himself and you can clearly see he is passionate about it. Can definitely recommend it

I stayed here last year and it was one of the best hostels of my entire holiday. We were welcomed to the hostel late at night, the owner stayed up to let us in (after we got lost!) and get us acquainted to our room. The building it is in is a little sketch, but the hostel itself is wonderful... More

Fest Hostel was one of the best stays I have ever had in different European cities. The hostel is small, cozy and minimalistic. The owner really loves his job here and is very helpful with solving all the problems you could have. Hostel location didn't cause any difficulties, you can reach all main Warsaw's attractions from here. Hotel is really... More

I really enjoyed staying here. 3 friends and I stayed for 2 nights. It was my first experience with a hostel and it was great. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. He makes you a delicious breakfast that is simple yet filling. The location of the hostel is hard to beat. It is easy walking distance for the old... More

Fest is a very good hostel. The location is perfect, there is a direct bus from the airport that arrives right around the corner, and you are a few minutes walk from the old town. The hostel is clean, from the kitchen to the bathroom. The 6-pax bedroom was large enough with quite new furniture and clean sheets and towels,... More

This is the most welcoming hostel I have ever stayed in; within 5 minutes of arriving I was invited for tea and Polish cakes with the man running the place and his friends. They helped me plan what to see the following day and when I didn't get up on time for check out (I needed a rest due to... More

Right in the heart of the city, this hostel is a good choice for travelers. Don't let the location in a run down former Uni residence fool you: the hostel itself is new and nice. Pros: location,friendly staff, good breakfast, clean. Cons: noisy at times, uncomfortable for couples. Credit Cards not accepted.
