“This is not a hostel; it's summer camp.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

This place was the normal: We're a hostel and we're so cool! type of place. Once you get over the "over the top" everything it's not a bad place to end up. The location is great for tired travelers coming in via train but otherwise everything is a good walk from here. The thing that killed the entire Oki Doki for me was coming in sometime around 1 am, had been writing a paper online, and being new to the room had to use the light for enough time to get my toothbrush out. I woke up a couple (maybe brother and sister) who went crazy. I tried to calm them down and apologized, climbed into my bunk and thought that was the end of it. About two minutes later I had the "guard" on duty -- the front desk girl -- climb up my latter to my bed and tell me that anymore disturbance would result in me being thrown out :-) This place is a joke, it's almost worth a visit just to feel like you're in 8th grade again, and anyone with more than a half-dozen passport stamps has no business staying here. TRUST ME~

Room Tip: A great room is anywhere else in Warsaw.

This must have been a horror. You entered the room with a noisy couple (after you waked them up). You were trying to calm them down and they were even louder. It’s a hostel, it’s a dorm. People must respect the others while sharing the room like this. Of course they were not allowed to misbehave, but why did you shout and cry for half an hour. Our receptionist came to your room because all the guests in the same wing were not able to sleep.
Location. Warsaw is a very large city, with attractions far from each other and wherever you stay you need to walk quite a bit. That’s why, we advise to stay at least 3 days, otherwise you will be tired. The hostel is located in the centric point of Warsaw allowing you to get everywhere by foot. We are exactly between the Old Town, Train Station and clubbing, bar zone.

This is a very different kind of hostel with a lot of colour and character which is so perfect for a holiday in Warsaw. The rooms are all themed, each room/dorm with a different theme. To start off with, the receptionists are extremely friendly guide you about the main spots to see, give you the daily event list. Thursdays and Fridays they hostel organizes pub crawl which you should not miss in Warsaw (with all the flavored Vodka shots). The pub crawl takes you to some of the good clubs and a lot of free alcohol. The hostel also has an in house bar where you can get beers, breezers and cider. The hostel bar is open till about mid night. The room and bathrooms are very clean. Overall it is worth the price you pay for the hospitality, stay and the great company you find in this hostel.

The location of the hostel is ideal, its walking distance to the old town and also to the metro stations.

Okie dokie was great; very unique and quirky, but perfect if thats what you like. all the rooms have a cool theme like santorini, saint tropez, bicycle, narnia, or rock star. it has a super chill atmosphere and is nice for meeting people. its located right between old town and a district with bars so there isnt much right near it. but it is very close to the centralina bus station and train station. the staff is really nice, fun to hang out with, and very helpful. they even helped my friend book his flight home! there is a nice breakfast but it is not complementary. drinking games, vodka tasting, beer tasting, and local food nights are organized through out the week too.

I visited this Hostel for the fourth time (previous visits in 07, 08 and 2012). The hostel is still being kept to a high standard by helpful, informative staff. The hostel is about quarter of an hours walk from Warsaw Central station. It's handy for the old town too. The lockers are large enough to store a full-size backpack and there is free wifi

The hostel is in the exact city centre of Warsaw and it is very close to all the important sites in the city. We stayed in two of the double rooms with a private bathroom, they were beautifully decorated and very clean. The staff are extremely nice, particular thanks to Zupa for all the help and advice. The breakfast was also lovely and tasty. I would definitely recommend Oki Doki Hostel for anyone travelling to Warsaw.

Whenever I am in Warsaw I stay here. It is fun, clean, and has loads of information on what to do in Warsaw. The staff is very nice ad helpful and the decor is very fun. It is also in a great location, a short walk to Old Town, the Train Station, and the Tower of Culture. Currently they are constructing a new metro line nearby, but you can't hear the construction from the hostel. Also, the breakfast is pretty good. Even the coffee.
