Reviewed May 20, 2013

Stayed in May, groip of friends. Location is great, just outside of Old Town and its gates with the view of the Cathedral. However:
1. Reception is at different locaton then your room, in fact in different building.
2. Parking ( additional fee, make sure you ask for a receipt, becasue the next day they don't remember you already paid), is totally different place, its about 10 min walk, so either you drop of your bags first or carry them back with you.
3. The apartment we stayed was modern, clean and with a good view, staircase leading to was old, smelly and did not look very safe.
I am not sure if I would recomend it or stayed there again.

I stayed there in the winter, and when I entered the room, it was really cold. So I turned on the heater, and it became hot, and basically I couldn't get the appropriate temperature, which was really irritating. The room (4-bed) was extremely small, its size was rather typical for a single room. I couldn't complain about the bathrooms, they were clean, but this freezing cold again... The staff was friendly and helpful, but when I came back at night, it was all dark, all lights turned off, and I had to find my room in the darkness, that wasn't cool. But, the location of the hostel is perfect! Although I had troubles finding the hostel, even though I know the city quite well, so tourists may have even more troubles. To sum up, I think that the hostel owners should improve its quality, as it has a great potential.

Nice hostel in a great location between the old town and the shopping district. The hostel is clean, friendly staff, the rooms are well appointed and the showers are clean and hot. A good base to explore the city

Apartments have excellent location right next to old town. Two of them have balconies overlooking the street and church. New furnishings, bathrooms, fridge, stove, satellite tv, and best of all FAST reliable wireless. Free and close parking along Żmigród street. Only issue could be that the heat is not turned on until the temperature reaches freezing. Not too big an issue unless you like to walk around in your underwear inside.

Staff is friendly and helpful if you need any help with anything.

Well situated in the city center..very clean and easy to find from bus station or train station. Informations are available; coffee and tea, refrigerator, microwave, not cooking.. Some of the staff are very nice and helpfull
Well for us what was offered on hostelbookers is the only bad private room share bath of the hostel. 2m X 3m., bunk bed. with a balcony facing 8 hours of full sun, So the temperature in the room was over 40c., no fan... Something to melt yourself.... and for sleeping, 2 nice bus stop under the balcony from very very early morning to very late.
The owner said that if she had something else (according to her... all full) she would move us, but she didn't even if the room next to us was empty on the second night. So for us it was 2 nights without sleep
We can recommand the hostel...but forget room number 2 we booked on hostel bookers

Room Tip: It is a nice and convenient place but avoid number 2 room

We stayed here for two nights in total (May 2012). It is ideally situated but quite difficult to find - you have to go through the archway that runs between the buildings and there you will find a sign. If you are backpacking on a budget then this is great because its clean, reasonably priced considering its proximity to the old town, and the staff are really friendly. It does still have that new feel to it (the TV stand was still in its wrapping when we arrived). It has a well equipped kitchen area for your use, and you can help yourself to teas and coffees (there is no breakfast option). We stopped in one of the hostel's private rooms with shared bathroom (remember to bring your own towel!). The double bed had a single bottom sheet and single duvet......bit difficult for a couple to sleep in!! Also, at no point was there any hot water!! So we couldn't really shower. Overall, this hostel came below the standards we found in other hostels in Poland BUT it has potential. I'm inclined to think that maybe these are just teething problems?

Really nice choice for a short travel stay in Lublin area. Really good location in the city center. You will not pay much for this kind of location. It is quite a new hostel proposal in Lublin so you will experience new and fresh style. A little bit difficult to find it but for sure it is easy to correct in future.
