Nice hostel in old town in a small street. It could be hard to find. Clean, quiet and helpful staff. No complaints. Of course it's a matter of whether you want to stay in a hostel near the train station or prefer the university atmosphere of Old Town. I booked it because it was recommended by Lonely Planet.

We were offered this apartment because the double room we had booked at the hostel was offered to a group. We were told this was a good deal; it wasn't. The apartment is small, pretty empty, feels and is cold, and smells. There is no tea/coffee/milk which there is at the hostel. A few minutes' walk to the Old/New Town... More

This was our second time at the Kanonia, mainly due to the great location and helpful staff. The hostel was very busy with a group of kids so the owner/manager gave us a one room private apartment with kitchen just a few yards away. Its easy to get to and tremendous value.

This hostel is the best located and brings you the best prices for groups. It's easy found and excellently situated in the very heart of Warsaw. It has good connections with local transport which takes you to any bus or railway station or airport.

Stayed for a long weekend in early December - snowed from start to finish and we were grateful for the lovely warm apartment at hostel kanonia. Although the facilities are quite basic - you'll need to pack towels and a soap bag - we had a fairly well equipped kitchen and could have cooked quite happily. The location is right... More

I've stayed in many hostels around Europe and this is by far the worst. We requested a double room but were given a twin, when we asked we were told to push two beds together until a double became available the next day. Just as well we moved because the desk (slab of wood protruding from a wall) collapsed under... More

Myself and three friends stayed for four nights. We were given the private apartment, which is located about 200m down the road, just off the Old Town Square - easily within walking distance of main tourist attractions. The room itself was very big, with our own internet and TV, both worked fine. There was a small kitchen with basic cooking... More

The hostel itself is ok. Our group stayed in a 4 person room which was fairly spacious, however the upper level of the bunk bed appeared to be broken (no one slept on that part!). The bathrooms were fine for a hostel, and there was a small kitchen downstairs with coffee and tea. It is located in the old part... More

Great location (but a bit tricky to find), friendly staff (even the ones that were grumpy about working Christmas eve), crazy guests, comfy beds. A bit cheeky that they pass off 2 beds and a couch as a "private 4 bed apartment", but sorted it out pretty quickly.
