We try to talked with the manager before arrive about our reservation but we can't. Manager of this hostel don't talk with the customers because they only customers I think :) The room was simple and poor. The showers are very poor. No towels and you could buy a shower gel or shampoo (first time in my live I saw... More

To me, these are the three most important aspects of a hostel. Lwoska26 nails this while being reasonably priced. The shared bathrooms are cleaned often and the toilet paper was never empty. The showers are in pairs behind lockable doors, but you can shower without locking the door if you think a shower curtain gives you enough privacy. That way,... More

This hostel is quite cheap but... I personally had a few bad surprises. First of all, I've been waiting outside for a few hours (there was no one at the reception and the entrance door was locked); the historical city center is quite far away, every time you want to be back at the hostel you can count 20 minutes...

The Hostel is quite a bit from the city center but easily reachable by tram or walking for a bit. The beds are decent and have a big locker for everybody. There was quite a bit of street noise, especially from the trams in the morning, even with the windows closed but I guess this is an issue nearly everywhere... More

This hostel was very cheap which was great for us as we were interrailing around Europe. However, it is not near the city centre at all, you have to get a tram or a taxi (cheap) to and from. Rooms were clean but very hot. You have to pay for air con which was not made clear to us

Stayed in this hostel last month for about 5 days. The best part - it is cheap. The rooms are clean, there is a kitchen (fully equiped, but somethimes not so tidy at all), bathrooms are shared. What bothered me the most was the constant noise from the reception. Staff was listening to music (quite loud) or visitors were talking.... More

Lwowska 26 was the first hostel of our interrailing trip! The hostel is located in the old jewish guettos, leaving you in the heart of some great history, although it was pretty far from the centre, the trams were easy to reach and the staff are willing to guide you! The rooms where basic and kept clean! A Luagge room... More

The room was clean but towels, shampoo, basics are not provided. Kitchen is available and well equipped. The location is not in the city center but it's easy to reach. What I didn't like mostly was the part of the staff to be honest- the feminine part was helpful and nice but guys are very noisy and not sure what... More
