“Cheap and comfy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012 via mobile

Four of us booked a room and enjoyed it.

Great location, very close to old town just down a wee alley.

Clean rooms and friendly staff. The girl there at the time was gorgeous!

Nice enough brekky and free net, well worth the stay.

Localization of this place is excellent! 2 minutes from the Old Town. Really great! Our room (two single beds) was pretty clean, bathroom with fancy shower, however there was only one chair... Staff was nice, decent included breakfast (you can bring your own food - La Guitarra has fully equipped kitchen). Nice tv area. Free internet. Genuine old building is impressive.
I also like the theme of this hostel which is guitar and the most famous guitarist ever.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet.

Liked: This was a great place; I had a very enjoyable stay here. It has everything you’d expect from a top-of-the-line hostel. Everything is really nice, modern and clean. It was very well located, within walking distance from the train station and very close to the old town square. There’s free WIFI everywhere. The bathroom/showers area particularly were really impressive, I really liked the layout and functionality. The rooms themselves are great also, very comfortable beds. I’m not sure if there was central air conditioned or something, but the temperature was very comfortable everywhere and also in the rooms, so you could get a nice night’s sleep as it wasn’t sweaty and muggy during the hot summer months as other places. You get a special keycard that unlocks both your bedroom door and the full-size locker in your room. You also get a very good breakfast included in the price. The staff is also nice and helpful.

Disliked: Nothing really. The price was a bit on the high end of what I paid during my trip, but definitely worth it for everything I got.

Would I recommend this hostel? Yes. It’s a great place and it’s definitely worth staying there if you’re in Poznan.

I strongly recommend this hostel because staff is excellent, location is very good, cheap price, instalations in good conditions and don´t forget free breakfast and free internet!. In a nutshell, if you visit Poznan, you should try " Guitarra Experience". However, the only problem is once you leave Hostel La guitarra you will miss it forever. Enjoy your travel!

The location is really nice 5min walk from city center and 5min from the old market where all restaurants pubs and clubs are located. Lockers and doors are on magnetic card, which is very usefull. Breakfast was ok, quite comfortable bed.

Be careful with this hostel, looks cheap but then money will be charged to you for breaking rules that you have not done it. I explain to you my case. Everything was fine until you get to my house trip to Poznan, I saw that I havi charged 50 euros more than an unknown name. We sent a very polite email saying it was wrong and he said, which he had breached the rules when it was not true. It was stupid face.

I honestly do not go, you prove more expensive than you think.

Great staff, E N O R M O U S breakfast (English, German, French an US hostels - you should rather feel ashamed of what you serve! :)

Very clean and shiny rooms, the place is brand new has dish washer, "big rain" showers. It is not a hostel - it is a shared appartment!
