The Hostel is close to the railway station, but a little difficult to find.
The rooms, or better: our room was ok. though quite small. If it had been fully occupied (6 beds) it would have been quite crowded in there, but as we were only 3 persons, it was ok. The hostel offers linen and towels.
There was a possibility to lock the room, but I have met other travellers at the hostel whose room was a passing room/connecting room (Durchgangszimmer), the staff (and apparently not only the staff ) lived in the room behind, there was no possibility to lock it.
The hostel offers moderate breakfast (white bread, eggs, cheese, honey, tea coffee), and there was even a simple dinner offered every night (e.g. soup, bigos, pierogi).
The common room was nice, there is one computer with free internet access, a tv, a radio.
There are two small toilets, they should have been cleaned more often. Two unisex showers.
There are no lockers, either lock your valuables in your room or carry them with you.
As I have mentioned, we had the possibility to lock our room, but one of those other guys in the connecting room was robbed, since then all of them carried their valuable belongings with them everytime they left the room.
All in all the hostel was ok, but the STAFF was somewhat strange!
I don't know exactly how many people work there as there were always some people around that weren't guest but did not belong to the staff either.
One of the girls working there was really not friendly, if you asked her something she would treat you as if you were disturbing her, kind of as if she was wondering, why you were actually there.
It seems that the staff often has some friends around, in fact these friends apparently live at the hostel too. Maybe some jobless people who can live there for free and have their meals there. Some really strange guys.
They would all sit together everyday and start drinking in late afternoon/early evening and drink all night long (maybe this was because it was Easter, but still, this is not, what you expect in a hostel, is it?). The unfriendly girl was also very loud, shouting through the hostel in the early morning, all of them always talking really loudly while sitting together at night. Not easy to sleep with this noise, esp. when you went out one night and came back late and then were woken up at half past 7 in the morning by staff conducting their conversation by shouting through the hostel!
