We stayed there for a weekend it was 15 minutes from downtown and 30 from makn train station walking. With Tram from main station 10 minutes, really good located it seems an not so nice place from outside but inside ist great. Breakfasts is ok some ham, jam, cheese, cereal. Beds are comfortable but they move a little bit.

I enjoyed the stay at this hostel. It's about 10 mins from the city center. The surrounding area doesn't look very pretty but the hostel looks very nice. No problem with internet, breakfast included (breakfast was pretty good as for a hostel), clean sheets & towels included. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Definetely could recommend this hostel.

We arrrived without a booking, just swinging it and we weren't dissappointed. The staff was really friendly from the get-go and for the first night we had a six person room for just the three of us. Even on the 2nd it was just one additional person. The rooms were ok for the price you pay, the facilities clean and... More

We arrived in the old town hostel and really liked the room. We had to pay for 1 extra person to get a private room. We left all our cameras and car keys in our room since it was private. When we arrived in the middle of the night in our room there was two different people laying in our... More

Spacious dorm rooms and big lockers, comfy beds, large kitchen and a massive breakfast included in the price. Staff was friendly, helpful and informative. It takes under 10 minutes to walk to the Old Town, about 25 from the bus/train station. A grocery store (Lidl) and tram stop are located right across the street. The hostel is hidden behind another... More

Terrible noise from the common room till 4 am during my first night there, on the second day something much worse - at 2 am some new people came to the dormitory where we were sleeping, they turned all the lights on, opened a bottle of whiskey and started a party. No reaction of the staff, just told me to... More

Me and 3 friends stayed here for 2 nights whilst staying in Gdansk. On arrival it was dark and the location of the hostel did appear a little daunting. However once inside it seemed friendly and welcoming. In daylight the hostel looks completely different from the outside. It is about a 10 minute walk from the town centre. The room... More

Arriving at night I wasn't sure what to make of this place and its surrounds, but by daylight (and once you know your way around a bit) it's a great place to stay. I thought the rooms were incredibly cheap (I stayed in a six-bed dorm) but still everything was really clean, there were plenty of toilet/shower facilities and the... More
