We only stayed for two nights in Chmielna Guesthouse, Warsaw, yet the stay was very satisfactory. Check-in is a bit complicated as you need to visit the reception at the hostel around the corner first which is nearly 4 floors high with no elevator, so watch out for the luggage. But to please you, staff is very friendly, gave maps, directions, and suggestions.
Located near the liveliest street of Warsaw, the hostel was easily accessible from everywhere you want; the airport, the train station and the main city attractions. The bus stop is right in front of the hostel. Yet because the Nowy Swiat is so busy and always alive, you might sometimes get annoyed from the noise coming from downstairs, especially there is a bar downstairs so you can hear polish teens shouting & drunk till 1:00 a.m.
The hostel only offers a few rooms, so make sure you book in advance to find a place. Each of the rooms has a unique character, each named after a different world major city, with the colors, furniture and the decorations that match with it. The rooms are a bit small, but very clean and comfortable. We were staying in rooms with private bathrooms, which were also very clean. There is a living room that all rooms share, where you can watch TV, work on your laptop (free WiFi), read books, eat/drink, etc. There is also a fully-equipped kitchen where you can make yourself free tea and coffee. We have not included breakfast in our package, so I cannot say anything about the food.
Overall a very nice place to stay and move from, although a bit pricy for a hostel, but it is not something specific, as it seems there is a lack in cheap hostels in Warsaw. We would love to go back if we ever went to Warsaw again.
