“A comfortable stay.”
Reviewed January 28, 2011

I booked through hostelworld.com this hostel (didn't write a review there as recently this site got the habit not to post my reviews publicly,so what's the point?) for 3 nights on January 2011.
When approaching the hostel, the impression is rather alarming,as it's located at the far end of a courtyard, in a not-so-nice looking building. Entering inside the building,(staircase) it looks rather shabby too. But when you finaly enter hostel reception (a couple of steps up), you can feel really relieved,as this is a brand new nicely decorated place. Theme is guitar and guitar players,so there are photos and stuff related to this, and rooms are named after guitar players too.
Reception offers two computers for use, free of charge unless if you are staying on one of the very cheap special deals that hostel offers time to time. That came very handy in my case, because exactly upon my arrival, a problem occured with Wi-Fi, and wasn't fixed till I left. Free computer use almost resolved this problem, but not completely, as I wanted to use my own netbook to be in touch with my boyfriend through Skype... This was the only problem I encounter in the whole stay though, otherwise I am very happy with this hostel.
I stayed in a twin private room so can't comment on dorms, but in my room- No 2 (Jack White) - the beds were comfortable with fluffy duvers, there was a small wardrobe, a tiny table and a chair, and decent space to put my stuff. Shared toilets and showers are very spacey, and were kept spotlessly clean - note of course that I was quite likely alone staying there, Poznan is extremely quite on off-season weekdays!
I didn't get to use the kitchen but seemed well-equiped to me, and common room has a huge LCD TV and all sort of this hi-tech staff ... Breakfast was very decent for a hostel too.
Security is an issue worthing mentioning in hostels, La Guitarra offers key cards to enter main building, reception and room, so this place is quite safe. I am not sure what's the situation with lockers, as I didn't need one and didn't ask about it.
Last but not least, location is very good, a stone's thrown from the square, and 10 mminutes on a tram from Glowny train station. Tram stop is exactly outside, but as the hostel is located at the back of the yard, you get the convenience without the noise.
I would easily stay here again, and would advice you to give it a try!

Reviewed November 6, 2010

I was a bit afraid as there were completely no recommendations of this Hostel and almost all pictures existing in the network were computer visualizations. Luckily, everything was fine.

The main theme is music. You can see this everywhere, rooms have names of famous rock guitar players. The hostel is pretty new (approx. 1 month of operations), but the load factor is satisfactory. Magnetic card access to rooms and lockers is a huuuge plus. A minus is additional fee for towels or hairdryer, however if you book early it is not so bad in summary. Additional plus for shower count (including separate cabins with shower + toilet).

One additional comment. The hostel is not placed in the building shown on the pictures, but in the backyard (no exotic views, just the wall).

In summary - big plus.
