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.

The hostel is very good located between the royal castle and charles de gaulles place. The reception staff is very friendly and helpful. You will get free Wifi acces and free breakfast in the morning with cereals, toast and jam. The only major problem was the housekeeping team. They don't take any care of you in the morning and were... More

Overall a nice hostel in the centre of the Old Town. It is definitely not a party hostel and I met travellers from all age groups. The lounge area is very comfortable with lots of colours and nice furniture. The decor inside the rooms is worth a mention. There is a very secure locker for each bed, plenty of lights,... More

you get what you pay for really. We had the eight bed dorm and it was sizeable and comfortable. Intern was good, facilities were good. Some annoying room mates but the hostel can't help that. Directions for an early morning checkout weren't too clear and left us guessing at 5am

Liked: 1) Good location near to Old Town 2) The staffs was very helpful . Breakfast was quite basic but perfectly fine, consisting of cereal and bread as well as tea/coffee. Free wifi. Nice common area. Disliked: 1) I did not like the bathrooms - they are mixed and no doors.

I spent almost 3 weeks here, feeling like home. The main difference was the common room, where I used to spend evenings - sometimes just reading, sometimes talking to people from the whole world, sometimes going out with them and having great fun. If you open for the stories and inspiring people, you may find this place fascinating. If you... More
