Amazing hostel. Good location, and a very helpful, friendly staff. The rooms are wide and very organised. You have a locker to put your things (although it doesn't look very secure, it's there anyway :)). I had a good experience there and I wish I had stayed more.

Stayed here for three days with a couple of friends in March 2014. Location was perfect - ten minute walk from the old town and surrounded by good bars and restaurants as well as being ten minutes from the main square in the city. Handy for the Stadium too which we were heading to for the scotland-poland game Hostel itself... More

I was a little worried about this hostel, because the price was quite low (at least for such a wonderful location - ten minutes walk to the Old Town), but I was positively surprised! The room was nice, wifi worked on every floor, the kitchen and the common room were spacious and cosy. Not to mention garden with barbecue and... More

This hostel is run in a hotel way, leaving the keys at the reception, many rooms etc. However the staff was always helping with my requests, the location is good, close to the nightlife core and to the old town. Big kitchen and FREE laundry are, surely, the big plus. The structure has a backyard garden that has a big... More

I tryed 3 hostels in Warszaw and Tatamka is my favorite. I sleep there everytime i pass by Warsaw. The rooms are clean and most of them new. You can find breakfast for 5 zloty (1,2 euros), internet (computer and WIFI), washing machine and dryer, all for free. There is a nice living room with couchs, available all the time.... More

Tatamka's rustic box-like building blends in with the urban landscape of the neighborhood, located only minutes away from a plethora of pubs, restaurants and sights. The somewhat rough first impression was shattered by an extremely warm welcome at the reception desk. The hostel stands out for its common areas: there is a fully equipped kitchen, including free coffee and tea,... More

Fantastic place - the location is great as it's so close to the old town and Nowy Swiat Street - full of interesting pubs and bars. The staff was extremely helpful and nice to me and my friend. When going to Warsaw I will stay there again ! Cordiali saluti Tatamka !

Brilliant hostel, nice open common room with a kitchen you can use yourself. Free WiFi throughout and very close to shops, restaurants, buses etc. Rooms are clean and bright. Such good value! Highly recommended.

I stayed here a while back, in November, so a lot has probably changed. However, it was fantastic value. Six bed dorm for a tenner? C'mon! That's brilliant, as far as I'm concerned. Guests and staff were all super friendly and helpful and it was easily accessible by bus from the main station in Warsaw. Cannot complain.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
There's no doubt that the Tamka hostel stands out above other accommodation in Warsaw. One of the biggest advantages is its superb location - the building is just around the corner from the most popular streets in the city, Nowy Świat and Krakowskie Przedmieście, and a short 15 minute walk from the Old Town. What does this mean? Put simply, you are within staggering distance of countless clubs, bars, pubs and restaurants.Other attractions of the capital city are also nearby: the business centre, shopping malls and numerous monuments - the Royal Baths included! With all these attractions around, you probably won't just be hanging round the hostel. That being said, it's good to know what this place has to offer: private rooms for 1, 2, 3 or 4 people (with or without bathrooms) as well as single places in bigger rooms: for 6, 8 and 10 people. We take care that the type of room and furnishings of the hostel suit each visitor - although the classical backpacker is well catered for because hostels are made primarily for them. That's why you'll find, amongst other things:- A common room with DVD player - an ideal place to relax and have a chat,- Free internet access (as well as wireless internet connection),- A fully-equipped kitchen,- Free coffee and tea,- Barbeque facilities.Because of the varied standards of our rooms and the many services provided on the hostel premises, our satisfied guests are also varied - foreign tourists visiting Warsaw, businessmen, organized groups and conference participants. Not only backpackers feel at home here! ... more   less
