Nice and tidy rooms. Very good location. Staff was super friendly. Great prices. I would visit this hostel again with no hesitation, if I have to stay in Warsaw. Also, girls in reception helped us with some tips about the city, and they have lots of maps about all the big cities of Poland.

They let me check in really early which I really appreciated! I didn't even let them know in advance. The toilets and showers were unisex. The lockers under the bed were very big and have their own built in lock. The room itself was big and the beds were spread out.
