Decided to visit Gdansk on my stag do at the end of March and after getting a cheap deal on the flights we decided that as we were not expecting to spend much time in the accomodation we would look to get somewhere cheap just to get our heads down. This hostel ticked all the right boxes and we were not disappointed!!!
Rather than try and make our own way to the hostel from the airport we got a taxi which was 60 Polish Zlotes (approx £12). Check in was quick and efficient with the reception staff speaking really good english.
We were charged a deposit of 10 zlotes for each room key and set off to explore the bars and "delights" that Gdansk had to offer. The reception staff were really helpful in pointing us in the right direction for the main bars.
Had no problems upon returning to the hostel late at night and as others have previously put, the area is safe although you maybe wouldn`t think this upon arrival due to the look of the hostel and surrounding area.
Drinks and food were exceptionally cheap, and we were paying approx £1 - £1.40 a pint in most places - obviously the prices did incrase the nearer to the old town you got.
As there were 12 of us on our trip, we shared 2 dorms on the lower floor in the hostel and we were vey close to the small kitchen where breakfast is left available to guests. This was sufficient to start the day on with it mainly being a continental style selection of bread, cold meats, cheese, boiled eggs, jams etc
Opposite the kitchen area were several toilets/shower rooms and we never had any problems in using these.
Our rooms consited of 3 bunk beds which were more than adequate for getting a few hours sleep before we were up and hitting the bars again the next day.
All in all a good place to stay on a budget as the old town was only 10 minutes walk away and shops and tram stops ver close nearby.
