Clean comfortable warm rooms (individual thermostats on radiators). Useful or drying coats after rain. Bring your own towels! Friendly reception when asking for travel tips. Breakfast is simple but adequate, jam, toast, bottomless real coffee. Occasional... More

Our stay at Hostel Helvetia was great! The location is perfect for visiting the city as it is close the heart of it and close to the metro and bus stops that will get you anywhere you want to go! It was clean and always a warm welcome when we returned from the freezing outdoor temperatures! It is also very... More

The basic breakfast was more than enough and very good. I just can recommend this hostel, is well located and the people who... More

The location is good. It is near the university and the old town. However, it was hard to find the location at first. The apartment that they offered us is not next to the hostel(3-4mins walk). Breakfast is included. However, the reception was rude and impolite. He was impatient to help you.

Booked a double room and for the price was happy with the amenities even though the building was quite old. Friendly staff, great location and simple breakfast included. No aircon, had to open the window to cool the room down which can make it easy to hear the body street. :(

The Helvetia Hostel is very clean and on a quiet street. The staff are friendly and helpful . They will call a taxi for you, if needed. You can also call Uber. The hostel is a ten-minute walk from Sigimund's Column. Free breakfast is simple, but adequate.

I spent one week in an 8 bed dormitory. The staff and the location were very good. I slept well the entire week. There was one lockable box for each bed with enough space for both my bag and my backpack. The simple breakfast was toast and jam, cereals and milk, which was enough to get you started for the...

We stayed at Helvetia only for 4 nights. The room was small but nice and clean. Bed very comfy, everything was working well in bathroom. Location is huge plus. We had little problem with taxi or food we ordered since there is no sign of number on the building. Wifi was rather bad and disconnecting all the time. All though... More
