Hostel Helvetia is your place in Warsaw. I travel to Warsaw regularly and stay for 7-10 days. Hostel Helvetia is where I stay, period. It feels like home. Location is unbeatable (minutes from metro, university area), it's quiet and safe (on a side street, good security), it's spotlessly clean (floor sparkles even under the beds). Major strength is Office Staff... More

Stay at the hostel was okay. the shared bathrooms were clean, the hostel beds were comfortable and the location of the hostel is central to the attractions (esp old town). breakfast selection was pretty limited though.

Stayed there 3 nights. Thanks to maja for her advise on what to do in the city and her help for trying to book a tour. Common room with breakfast is basic but it's all you need! Rooms are nice, think about putting better curtains. Location is great, right in the middle of everything in walking range.

I had a great time with Hostel Helvetia. It was clean, the room was nice, the breakfast was good and the staff was really nice and helpful. I stayed in my own room with private bathroom tucked away in the corner of the building. The location is pretty ideal. It's within walking distance to a lot of the major spots.... More

Stop looking and start booking, this is the one! Helvetia is a really fantastic hostel - great location near the old town and metro station, delicious free breakfast, super-comfy beds and a cosy common room where it's really easy to meet fellow travellers. Best of all are the staff! Always willing to help with anything from food and bar tips... More

The location is perfect...very close to Old Town and the Metro. My friends and I stayed in a 3 person room in the building separate from the main hostel building. The room was a fine size and clean. We had a shared kitchen with a few other rooms, and a breakfast of breads, meats, cheeses, juice, cereal, and milk was... More

Everything was spotless, the staff were really friendly and even the free breakfast was quite good. The location is perfect, the Old Town is within walking distance, the new metro station is just a minute.

Very positive. You can't get more for the price.The place is a bit hidden but actually very central in Warsaw.From the outside looks like an old and ugly building,but inside everything is renovated,with new furniture and colorful rooms.At least in my room (mixed wth. 8 beds) everything was clean. I really liked the fact that you don't need to have... More

Good price, great situation, comfortable ... BUT the staff does not care about us at all 😒 no hello no bye nothing... An other problem is the noise. People chatting in the hall is like they were in our room... Not a good place to make friends at the moment we stayed...

The hostel had a friendly 24 hour reception and allowed us to borrow their phone. The place was modern, clean and well furnished with good facilities. Not a bad walk from the old town and there are some good sights on the way. Good kitchen facilities. Would recomend this hostel.
