Building looked a bit scary from the outside but as soon as we got inside it changed our minds. Very cozy place with a nice garden, the staff is extremely nice and very helpful. The location is pretty good, around 10minutes away from nowy swiat and 30minutes from warszawa centralna station. Breakfast costs 5zt and is totally worth it, there's... More

I spent one night in Tatamka hostel, building looked a bit "communist" style from the outside, however, nice and quite new furniture inside. Rooms were nicely (for hostel) equiped with "funny" pictures on the walls. Breakfast was simple but good enough. I was quite pleasantly surprised that there was garden with place for BBQ where with other people for few... More

The staff in this hostel really make it worthwhile! Everyone in reception was so friendly and helpful, and I wouldn't have made it to my next bus without their help. Beds were comfortable and the hostel was clean. My only complaint would be that there were two bathrooms, toilet and shower in one cubicle, and it was a little difficult... More

I would definitely recommend staying at this hostel if you are going to Warszawa! As others have stated, out provides all the services one could expect from a hostel, and the buffet breakfast costing a bargain 5 złoty is as good as found in a 3 star hostel. Rarely had I seen such a well organised hostel. Although I did... More

A well run hostel that excels in all aspects. The rooms are clean and spacious, and although there was any one shower for a room of 8 people, this was never a problem during our stay. Situated in a great location, too - just 10 minutes from the Old Town Square, for example. On top of this, the staff were... More

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

I really enjoyed my staying in Tatamka hostel. Really good location, it takes only 5 mins to the Old Town. And very helpfull and positive stuff. Especially Veronika, that was friendly and advised us some cool parties in Warsaw. Overall experience is very positive. Good hostel for a good price.

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

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
