I picked this hostel for the area and good reviews it had. I arrived on a Sunday and my taxi did not have change to give me. I asked the hostel if they had and they did not. Then I went with the taxi driver to find an open shop that could change my 50zl. I only say that so you can be prepared with small notes. The room they gave me (no. 21) was not the one I booked. It was claustrophobic and I did not like the bed but I was too tired to say anything. The next day I told them and they gave me a much nicer room like the one I booked. The bed was too hard for my taste but it was clean, with a good shower and spacious. Have in mind that the rooms are not soundproof so if you don't want to be awakened by the hoover of the cleaner to the next room, bring your earplugs. Also note that in their site they mention they have laundry but they don't. There is a laundromat somewhere near though that you can use. At summer time it was hot and they give you a small fan since they don't have air conditioning. They were fixing the roads near the area so it's not a pleasure to walk around but you can choose to walk on the other side near the river and to the old town which is near. The breakfast is very basic, I only had it once for that reason. The staff is very polite and especially the girl who works the night shift is very helpful.

Have just returned from 3 nights in Poland & we stayed at The Secret Garden Hostel. The hostel is approx. 20 minute walk from the main square therefore it is close but also far enough away to ensure a quiet stay. There is free teas & coffees in the kitchen which is a nice touch, and the staff were extremely helpful at all times. The room was nice & warm which was great as the weather was extremely cold. We stayed in the Clockwork Orange room which had a double bed & a small sofa with a massive bathroom and great shower. Would absolutely recommend this hostel & would definitely stay again.

I found it very good, being a hostel. Its 20 minutes of the center and have reception 24h. The room is simple and has no TV. I stayed in ground floor and there was two bathrooms in the hall so it was good..not waiting long to use it. We stayed for 3 days and no cleaning or changing towels was provided. You can use the kitchen to heat water or coffee but they have also a breakfast buffet if you want to pay separately.

One of the best things was free tea, coffee and cocoa which is available any time in the kitchen. Much appreciated. Rooms are cozy and the bed was the most comfortable I ever slept in! Hostel is really warm, even in December when it is freezing outside. 10 minutes walk to the castle and 20 minutes to main square and old quarter. Lots of cute cafes and bars nearby the hostel. Breakfast is around £3 extra, but I didnt bother as for same price you can stock up from local mini market for a week and keep things in hostel fridge. They also let you use the kitchen to do your own cooking. Really enjoyed my stay. Only negative is they do not have a computer for general use, so I has to find internet cafe to print my boarding pass.
