Very nice and clean hostel with smart system of personal lockers per each bed so eventhough you are in a shared bedroom with other travellers you have a chance to lock your stuff. Luggage room to store the bags before leaving to bus appreciated. Friendly stuff!

Very comfortable, clean, and modern. Peaceful stay. Walking distance to city center, shopping, and metro. The kitchen / lounge area is cozy and well-decorated, too. Staff can help direct you to the best places to find pierogi : - )

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.
