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

After visiting probably fifty or so hostels worldwide, I'm happy to say that Helvetia definitely is at the top end of the pile. I stayed here for four nights, and aside absolutely loving Warsaw, I loved everything about the hostel as well. The rooms and bathrooms were clean, the staff was professional and the breakfast they provided was a nice... More

Hostel Helvetia is well located (a 10-15 min walk to the train station or the old town) and is quiet. The staff were helpful and kind, giving great advice and even greater service. The people that stayed at the hostel were all wonderful as well, and this really made the experience shine. I would for sure stay here again.

It is so clean, pleasant and well managed, where the staff do everything to ensure your stay is a pleasant one. All the staff are so enthusiastic about promoting Warsaw and all the sites, taking their time to guide you. On our... More

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
