Travelers' Choice
Our Hostel first opened in 2016. Warsaw Hostel Centrum was supposed to be a bit different, to stand out from the crowds. Our message is: We're Polish and we're proud of our heritage. We'd like to teach you a bit about our culture and history - isn't it one of the reasons we travel? That's why every room and common area is decorated with large wallpapers introducing famous Poles and important events from Polish history. You can learn all about it by scanning a QR code - simple as that. Looks cool as well! Obviously we couldn't fit in everything, the Hostel is nowhere near big enough for that, but it's a start. What else do we offer? 24 hour reception desk equipped with a safe to store your most precious valuables large common area with satellite TV guest kitchen & dining area free tea & coffee free luggage storage drinks, snacks & toiletries available at the reception desk secure key card system dorm rooms equipped with lockers, luggage baskets, reading lamps & small shelves laundry service, use of iron & ironing board towels for rent free Wi-Fi access throughout plus two guest computers in common area knowledgeable staff that live, study and party in Warsaw - an excellent source of local tourist and party information free city maps shared bathrooms equipped with hair dryers games to borrow (free of course) like jenga, scrabble, cards, dominoes, etc.

I stayed at this hostel for 3 nights in mid-September of 2019 in Rm 219. I think this is their best room based on the cost of the room. Do not confuse this hostel with Warsaw Central Hostel. They are totally different places from each other. The first thing you should know about this hostel is not quite located on Emilli Platter. Their website gives directions on how to get there. The reason why you need to know this is that you have to walk through a gateway off Emilli Platter to reach a courtyard where the hostel is located. If you go strictly by address you will have a hard time finding this place. Hence, follow the idrection given on their webiste or take my directions above which I think is better. I suggest the following insturctions. When you arrive at Warsaw Central Station walk down the corridor between the tracks until you reach a stairway going up between Track(Peron) 2 and 3. As you walk up the stiars you will see right above and behind you the large station’s schedule/track display board. At the top of the stairs you turn left and walk about 100 feet or so until you come the exit from the station. Do not go up the escalator in front of the stairs coming up from the track corridor. This leads to a food court where there is a McDonalds if you want it. Upon exiting the station, turn right until you see a pedestrian walkway going across the lanes. About 10 yards from the door. There is another entry into the station right where the pedestrian walkway is. After crossing the lanes keep walking directly away from the station following the walkway. Do no enter any doorways into buildings. It will have turns to the right but it will keep going away from the station. This will lead you directly to the street Emilli Platter, which is a wide street with lots of traffic. From the station door to the street is about a 100 yards. Once you reach the street you will see the very distinctive Palace of Science and Culture on your left. It is a large white building that has a large square bottom with a thin column going up the upper half of the bulding. It has been described as like a Ghostbuster building. Anyway, turn left and walk along Emillii Platter keeping the Palace of Science and Culture on your right. You will pass it since it appears Emillii Platter parallels it. Keep walking along this side of the street. You will pass the Intercontinental Warsaw hotel(on same side of street you are) as you go walking along here. You will pass 4 pedestrian stripped driveway from the station. At roughly 400 meters/yards away from the station you will come to the first intersection with traffic lights. There is a Starbucks Coffee(on the same side you are) just 20 feet from the street corner. Wait until the pedestrian signs says you can walk across. Once you cross the street, you will then immediately cross Emilii Platter at the same intersection. After crossing Emilii Platter, turn left to continue down Emilii Platter away from the train station. You will go about 30 meters/yards until you come to a driveway that goes through the building to a courtyard with trees. Go through the drive way to the courtyard. Upon entering the courtyard, you will angle right and straight down the parking/driveway area. You will go about 30 meers/yards until you see a sidewalk on your left heading away from the driveway. You will see a black sign with white 36A on it about 10 feet up on the side of the building and a wroughtiron gate below. it. There is also a sign next to to the sign for 36A that says Hostel Centrum as well. That is the main entry to the hostel. The gate is sometimes locked during the day. Just click the buzzer on the intercome box and they will let you in. Once past the gate keeping going straight until you come to the first door on your left. This takes you straight into reception. I hope these instructions help you. There is a fairly decent supermarket very close to the hostel. Less than 5 minutes walking. Just exit the hostel and turn left down the driveway instead of right like you originally came in. Once you reach the street turn immediately right and walk about 20 meters/yards and turn left crossing the street via the pedestrian striped lane. Keep going straight once you cross the street and the first store on your left is the supermarket. There is an ATM machine here as well. The supermarket is not large but it has some fruits and vegetables, like oragnes, grapes, grapefruits as well as salad and spinach bags. There are also sliced meats and cheese packages in the store for a single or two meals. A good place to get a meal and bring it back either to eat it or cook it. The hostel looks reminds me of a college dorm in many ways. The color white is everywhere. It gives me a sense of order and cleaniness. The bathroom was very clean and had that lemony fresh smell. The hostel has what appears to be a long term cleaning staff. Not the volunteers that other hostels have. The hostel felt very secure as well. The front gate as I stated before is usually locked. The only way to open it is with the key fob you get after registration or via buzzing the intercom in front. You have to use the key fob to access your room or the area where your room is located. There are kitchen area located around the hostel. The one nearest me had had a kitchen sink, microwave, small refrig, and a coffee maker. There were plates, cutlery, bowls, and mugs as well. There were also sitting areas where there were tables and chairs. The website for this hostel was good in detailing the various rooms you can choose from along with their detailed decriptions. They provided rates for each. You can reserve the selected room on the website as well. You have two option on the website when reserving your room. You can pay in advance or upon arrival. If you pay in advance you get a slight discount in the normal rate but it is non-refundable once you make it or whatever reason. I splurge on this hostel and got their best. I got Rm 219 which is all the way in the back. It is a very small room with a double bed. It has two blankets folded up like it could be for each person on the bed. There is only one foot of free space on the left and right side of the bed. There is a small bedside table on each side of roughly 1 foot square or ¼ meter square. On one side is a small reading lamp. There are two electrical soeckets above the bed which one is being used the reading lamp. Opposite the bed are two chairs side by side which I put my smaller bag and other things on. There is also a table of 1 foot square or ¼ meter square you can put stuff. There is a window that faces outside that hs curtains. You can open the window if you want. It appears all the rooms are on the 2nd floor. Just before entering reception there is a corridor that leads to stairs. You go up those to the 2nd floor. Then there is a long hallway with rooms on both sides. From the brief looks I saw inside the room they seemed lively and pleasant to sleep in. Certinaly not dingy and drab. Bright colors. There seemed to be a decent amount of space in them. Reception appear to know English fairly well or well enough to check you in and give you some info. The area around the hostel seem safe to walk around even at night. There are lots of shops and restaurants around especiallhy toward Warsaw Central. Like I mentioned there is a Starbuck Coffee very closeby. Overall, I enjoyed my stay at the very much. I would certainly recommend it to anyone. I think women would especially like this place

Excellent place and price for budget stay! The hostel is near from the buss and train stations and near from the Palace of Culture and Science. Near from the bycicle rental station (Veturilo). One of the main streets of city, very many shops and coffy places aroud, but in the same time, very sillent place in the inner yard of block. I arrived by bus very early on the morning and the staff was very friendly. I left my bags in the hostel luggage room, take a shower and hostels cup of coffy before rooms was cleaned and the chek-in started. Next evening my bus went very late- about the midnight. The staff allowed me to let my bags in luggage room after checking-out. On the evening, before to go to the bus station, I teke one more cup of coffee, use the hiostels microwave stowe. No angry staff. Reception staff speaks Russian, too- bonus for me- I speak Russian better, as english. Room, kithcen and shower was clean. Before to make reservation, I cheked hostel's offer in booking,com and in hostel's home page. Hostels home page offered half price by the birthdays. It was may birthday and wrote e-mail to hostel. As a result I got one place in 3 bed room for 7.50 euros! By the night, I was alone in the room. Good deal! Thank you, very much, for service!

Me and two friends stayed for five nights. Me and one other in a twin-bedroom with bunk bed, and one in a mixed dorm with four beds. All three enjoyed the stay. Really good spot in the centre of city, clean bedrooms, clean toaletts, clean shared kitchen, nice staff, modern interior. I used the laundry facilities one's and it worked perfect to pick it up some hours later. Do recommend this hostel! One of my friends have stayed here before, if I come back to Warsaw would I also stay here again.
