“A good place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

I stayed in the hostel for one night, and everything was ok. Rooms and bathrooms were clean, beds comfortable, staff - friendly and helpful. The prices were low as well. And the location is good, not far away from the Old Town. But, unfortunately, it is situated next to clubs or pubs, so I actually didn't sleep at all, as the music was so loud. And it was really hot, but I couldn't open the window because of this noise. But, still, the hotel itself was pretty nice.

Really nice hostel few minutes from Wroclaw's Old Town. Hostel is on the street with lot of clubs, so it is quite noisy during the night, but it depends on room and your sleep :). Perfect for party-goers :)

I stayed in the St. Nicholas private apartment operated by the Absynt Hostel with 4 girlfriends in Feb 2013. We really enjoyed this apartment as it was ideally located a short walk from the old square and the bars and clubs, but not too noisy. It was clean and quite spacious with comfortable beds and a good shower. It came with plenty mod cons too such as an iron, a washing machine, a dishwasher and TV. Unfortunately there were issues. There was no stereo system, DVD player or any other means of playing music which would have been nice. When we arrived most of the light bulbs weren't working in the apartment but once we alerted the staff in the hostel, they sent someone over first thing in the morning. The apartment was very warm when we arrived but the heating seemed to switch off at some point and we couldn't turn it back on. Some instructions would have been useful to deal with this. We were only given one key between 4 of us and although we were told we could have another, this never happened. Also, we had to buy a wine bottle opener as there was none in the apartment and we had to ask for more towels as they didn't give us enough in the first place. BUT despite all these small problems, in general the staff in the hostel were very helpful and we were well looked after. They took care of our bags on our last day and booked us a taxi to the airport. The location really was fantastic and over all, I would recommend this apartment.......but be prepared to have to ask for a thing or two!!

I stayed in one of the apartments operated by the Absynt Hostel. When we arrived the front door into the building was full of graffiti, when we walked in the hall looked dark, drab and dismal with paint peeling off the walls. Walked up the two flights of spiral stairs to our apartment, opened the door and wow, fabulous apartment, lovely and modern, spacious for the three of us travelling together. Absolute bargain! Not only was the apartment gorgeous but it was less than 2 minutes to the main square... what more could you ask for. The staff at the hostel were very pleasant and helpful on check in check out. You need to pick up the keys and return them to the hostel on department. Hostel is 5 mins walk from the apartment.

Four of us stayed in a private apartment rental in Wrocław operated by the Absynt Hostel. The location was ridiculously close to the main square which was perfect. It was a well-appointed apartment with one bedroom, pull-out couch full bath/shower (two sinks), full kitchen with new appliances (dishwasher and gas stove), living room/dining room and balcony, really fast and secure wi-fi, HD TV (which we didn't really use). It also had all the little things like iron/ironing board, vacuum, cleaning products, kitchenware (even some tea and sugar) and yes, towels for 4.
The building was secure. The apartment was nicely decorated and furnished and was modern.

Check-in/out was easy and the ladies at the office in the hostel were very helpful, nice and spoke great English.

The price was great too. We paid $240 PLN for two nights.

All in all, I would recommend this option for anyone who wants to go the route of the apartment rental for a group. It was well worth it

...and Wrocław is a blast, by the way ;)

We booked this hostel for a stag party during the Euros. Very good location, only 65 zlotys for a taxi from the airport and walking distance (5 mins) to the main square. The rooms were very clean and secure and the reception desk was manned 24 hours a day. Defintley recomended!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing away from the square as it can get quite noisy! Keebab shop across the road i...
