I traveled in the off season and got a four bed room to myself, so that may skew my perception a bit. I was in a basement room, which smelled a bit moldy. Although the walls were a bit thin, as are most hostels, the beds were comfortable and I still managed to get a restful night’s sleep.
They had a few bathrooms with lots of showers, which would be helpful in the peak travel season. There was free wi-fi available at a decent strength, though not available in all rooms (including mine). Breakfast was included in the price, which consisted of bread, meats, cheese, cereal and instant coffee. Coffee and tea were available all day
It’s about a 10-15 minute walk from the city center, though it gives you the opportunity to see the Gdansk that has not been scrubbed squeaky clean for tourism and shows you how the people really live. It is also a manageable 20-25 minute walk from the central train station.
The gentleman that works in the morning / day shift was fantastic, very helpful in terms of suggestions for sights and helpful with travel questions. The gentleman that worked the night shift was a jerk, who played video games on the shared computer his entire shift rather than helping guests.
