Liked: 1) Good location near to Old Town 2) The staffs was very helpful . Breakfast was quite basic but perfectly fine, consisting of cereal and bread as well as tea/coffee. Free wifi. Nice common area. Disliked: 1) I did not like the bathrooms - they are mixed and no doors.

I spent almost 3 weeks here, feeling like home. The main difference was the common room, where I used to spend evenings - sometimes just reading, sometimes talking to people from the whole world, sometimes going out with them and having great fun. If you open for the stories and inspiring people, you may find this place fascinating. If you... More

This hostel was great. The facilities were excellent and the staff were really friendly and helpful. They all spoke fluent English, and did everything they could go help me whenever I asked. The beds are also really comfortable and the rooms were nice.

Stayed for 1 night here in early July while visiting Warsaw. Very clean hostel, girl on the desk was very friendly and helpful and room was nice. Basic breakfast was included (cereal and toast) which was useful. Kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. Would stay here again if visiting Warsaw

The staff were in the average; I didnt find any special connection with them as heppens in other hostels. I guess it is not a very lively place.....but is a... More

The Hostel staff are great, they seem to just be able to recite the busses you'll want for any trips you enquire about. The hostel itself is chilled out, with a decent kitchen and good music. Fridge and freezer. Beds are comfy. It's really nice! I had a bit of an emergency regarding the hospital and Mat was great and... More

This was the second time I stayed in the Helvetia Hostel (first time was in 2011). The location is great. Is right on the corner of Nowy Swiat. I booked a bed in 3p female dorm but they made a little mistake with confusing the departure date for the arrival date. Fortunately there was a quick solution and a bed... More
