Już po raz piąty, będąc w Warszawie, zatrzymałem się w hostelu Helvetia, dokładniej w jego części luxy. Najszybciej jak się da: czysto, świeżo i przytulnie. Śniadanie w cenie pokoju daje szanse najeść się każdemu. Obsługa miła, niewidoczna jeżeli tego nie potrzeba. Szczerze polecam. It's fifth time in a row, when during my stay in Warsaw I choose to stay in... More

Run by Varsovian bacpackers & tucked into a quiet side street of the bustling University district. The staff really walk that extra mile (kilo) to take care off U (hostel-bar-hostel). Loads of dorms for the penny- pinch'ers & or plenty of privates for you lobster-lunchers... Looking for something super special try their "plus" apartments on for size & watch your... More

Clean, bright hostel with helpful local staff. Affordable and central to lots of tourist locations in Warsaw. Furniture and rooms were good and relatively quiet. Only slight issue was the lack of bathrooms. Our room was at one end and the showers were at the other which made it a bit awkward. Nice common room and kitchen however. Recommended for... More

I stayed in an 8 bed mixed dorm here, which was always kept very clean by housekeeping. One of the young male receptionists was so nice and helped us out a lot!! However we witnessed another lady working there being quite rude to people several times. Breakfast was included and very good (tea, coffee, cereal, bread, bread rolls, jam, cheese... More

Our story is a bit unusual. We booked a 8 ppl dorm and we found ourselves in a twin room for the same price. We paid really few for the service we got, possibly it's a bit overpriced for the standard service. Our room was clean, lot of space, and good forniture. Beds were very good and the place is... More

We stayed here for one night and were impressed with the hostel. The staff were friendly and gave us lots of tips of things to see, and seemed genuinely interested in their guests. We arrived before check in time but were able to securely store our luggage, which was good. Getting to the hostel from the central train station was... More

The location of Helvetia is good, about a 10 minute walk from Old Town and nearby to many attractions. Getting there can be a bit confusing if you're using a map because the street seems to have two names, depending on which direction you come from. The hostel itself is good by hostel standards, we had a private room and... More

Good location near the shops and in the middle of the two main attraction areas and the man at reception was very helpful. Breakfast was quite basic but perfectly fine, consisting of cereal and bread as well as tea/coffee. Free wifi. The room and kitchen area didn’t seem very clean compared to a lot of other hostels we stayed in.... More

The common room was good - spacious and clean with comfortable chairs. Kitchen is a bit squashy, especially during breakfast when everyone's trying to eat and clean up. Not a big deal though. Staff is helpful and knowledgeable and they also speak English well. Location is very good - buses available a short stroll away and the nightlife on that... More
