“Great Hostel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

We loved our stay here, our double room was large and clean with a nice view over the extensive garden area. Our hosts bent over backwards to make us feel very welcome in their hostel and I have no complaints with anything at all. The bus from the airport was a doddle, and we enjoyed getting the bus into town every day, we never waited more than 5 mins for a bus and it takes no more than 10 mins on a busy day. Apart from the most extensive cd and dvd collection I have ever seen, there are also 2 PC's and wifi for unlimited free use. HIghly recommended - gutted to be home, wish I was back at Mamas and Papas

I've just got back from Gdansk and stayed at Mama's & Papa's, I cannot recommend it highly enough, don't be put off by the location - its only a couple of minutes walk from the bus stop and takes ten minutes to get to / from centre and the buses run 24 hours a day. We stayed in a double room and the hostel is immaculately clean with plenty of bathrooms, great facilities and you even get a bit of breakfast included in the price - you feel like you are staying with friends!! We will definitely be returning to Gdansk, its a great city with plenty to do and I would never even consider staying anywhere else. Do not be put off by the word hostel - this place is better than a lot of the hotels I have stayed in and is run by two of the nicest people you will meet. Fantastic - stay there!

We stayed in a 2 bed private room for two nights during the Euro 2012 finals. Very nice place, staff are extremely friendly and helpful. A bit out of town but the bus service was good. Taxi was only about €5 from the train station. Free wifi and continental breakfast.

The best hostel, great atmosphere, wonderful staff, Mama and Papa are great! You feel like staying in a family. We stayed there for 4 nights and were more than satisfied, rooms are clean and nice, breakfast is very good, and the living room where you can watch movies, listen cool music and meet new people is really amazing! And the location is good also, in a quiet and nice area, just 10 minutes by bus to the center! I would definately recmmend this hostel!

We had 4 amazing days at Mamas&Papas! Probably one of the best hostels I've ever been to. The staff is very friendly and you feel like visiting a family. The rooms are lovely and the breakfast is nice. There's also a big garden to chill and in the cosy living room you can watch some movies or have a chat with the other guests or with mama and papa! If you want to have some relaxing days stay at Mamas&Papas!

we spent two nights there and we can just say that everything was simply perfect. we slept in a double room the first night, then we shared a 6 beds room on the 2nd night. both rooms were big, comfortable and very clean.
breakfast was good as well.
the owners, Mama&Papa and their daugher, are an amazing family and they do their best to make you feel at home. there is a a nice common room with a lot of books and films.
the only negative aspect, if I am to find one, is the location. the hostel is not in the city centre, but there a several buses that can take you downtown in less than 15 minutes.
if you are looking for a clean, easy and very cheap place for your staying in Gdansk, then this hostel is just perfect!
