Hostel Krokodyl
Ranked #93 of 312 Specialty Lodging in Warsaw
Reviewed August 6, 2012

I stayed for two nights at Krokodyl, they provide a top hostel luxury service (For only +-10€/night). At first i was reluctant on the distance between the town center and this Hostel, but the main street near the Hostel has a gigantic affluence of transportation methods, bus, tram, taxis, and they are ultra cheap (around 0,50€ one way ticket for bus and tram).
In the service "list" you can expect:
* Super clean rooms, very neat. I was here on August so it was a little hot in the rooms, but an opened window resolved the issue pretty fast), the beds are very comfortable too.
* Amazing bathrooms
* Hostel Staff super friendly and helpful
* Laundry service, at the end of each day you just put your laundry on baskets and THEY wash and dry your clothes during the night, so when you wake up it's all done. How amazing is that?
* 2 lounge rooms with television, 1 kitchen, 1 "living room", 1 backyard, some rooms got a cool balcony
* Breakfast included
* Wifi (Does not reach the third floor)
* 24h service, fresh non alcoholic beverages at reception for like 1€
* 1 locker for every bed in each room
* Luggage service, when you check-out you can leave your luggage in a locked(Safe) room for while (Which was my case), or just chill in the lounge while you wait for your train or plane.
Service wise, i never been on a better Hostel, and for this price it seems like gold!

Room Tip: Room on the third floor with the balcony on it.

Overall, we had a good stay at the hostel. The rooms were large and the beds were cosy. The hostel staff was extremely friendly, in fact, one girl even helped us plan a day trip to the Krakow/Katowice area, trains and all! The only negatives of our stay were the facts that the breakfast was pretty weak (though free), it got noisy at times (due to a large group of middle/high school students staying across the hall from us), and the hostel is not in the best part of town. That being said, the noisy kids were not the hostels fault and we never felt in danger walking home late at night, it just wasn't a very beautiful area. However, things were cheaper on that side of town which was nice, and it is just a short (free) bus or tram ride across the river to the nicer side of town.

Room Tip: I believe some of the rooms facing the road have balconies, but there was not much of a view when we...

The rooms and the bathrooms were very clean,modern and quiet, the staff really friendly and helpful, I loved the vibrant colours of the walls and the photographs on the walls. There is free breakfast every morning. The only downside is that it is located about 15 minutes by bus from the city centre, which was a bit inconvenient for us, because we wanted to see the Old Town of Warsaw,but it is okay unless you need something in walking distance.
