Hostel under the sign of cognition.
Do you like traveling with a thrill? Are you a person who is curious of the world, who appreciates the highest achievements of our culture? Or maybe simply you want to reside in a place full of art and science which you have never seen before? We created our hostel thinking about people like you - true explorers. Settle down nearby the Old Town, take rest after your trip and start to chase the real adventure, feel the vivid everyday life of Poznan outside your window.
Upon entering the hostel building you can feel the integrating power of the cinematography, then you can feed your eyes with the artistic photographs and this is just the beginning. Rooms dedicated to the greatest inventions of human kind are waiting for you on the four floors of the building. Coming upstairs you can hear the melody of mankind - piano, radio, vinyl - see how they were changing the world. If you have enough courage to go further, a real revolution will be waiting for you - a communication one. Be careful because the third floor accelerates a man and the fourth floor will get you high!
We are sure that you will appreciate our rooms design which contain gizmos dedicated in each peace only to one invention. On the walls you will find a bit of gossips about the inventor and the invention - in three languages. Unique formula of our hostel makes your every visit an unusual experience. You will come back - for more cognition.
Moreover during your stay you can taste moooore Poznan!;) In Explorer Caffe Restaurant we serve traditional cusine of Poznan, handmaded dumplings and much more! ;)

The bests things are the staff and the location which are superb . Beware that in July 2020 , there is no longer a restaurant or a bar, as stated still on some of the accommodation / hotel booking websites . Breakfast is ‘ basic’, but very fresh and good value for money . communal bathroom areas are a bit tatty , and ready for a refurb , but they are clean. If you want fresh fruit and more coffee , there is a JAbka across on Garbary st, together with cheap eateries . The old town square is around the corner. You will need to take a taxi or tram from the railway station or airport
Despite having good experience of my stay and being a regular customer at this hostel through my company I faced a rather racial and prejudiced behavior from a hostel staff asking me to leave the lobby as soon as my stay was over. On asking his name and the hostel customer service form he asked me to leave the premises and threatened to call security. None of the explorer offcials has looked into the case yet.I will be glad to receive an action in my favor against the mormimg miscreant. Its a very sad sad experience.
Between my two visits to Poznan I probably spent a week there. Clean rooms, nice English speaking staff, and ok breakfast. Being wall to wall to a restaurant is good for quick meals, and it is located 6 minutes from the Old City square, which makes tourism very easy. Restroom was clean and water was hot; however, I must say that all the other reviews that mention the clogged drains are true.
Very centrally located, I had booked us a triple room, which cost £40 for the night. It had a large bathroom and hallway area and a reasonable sized room. It was perfectly cozy and comfortable. Would recommend.
The location of Explorer Hostel is perfect for tourists: 250 meters from the Old Town Square but on a very quiet street. The staff is great, really helpful and friendly. The room is simple but very clean. You get what you pay for. The shared batrooms were clean and comfortable, never any queues. You can purchase a rich breakfast for small money. I will definitely return here.
