Reviewed June 7, 2012

Have to give a heads up, if you like everything cleaned, this is not the place for you. But otherwise, the staff is really friendly, the garden outside is exclent to drink a few beers before heding out to the clubs. Didn't really use the kitchen, but it seemed to have everything. Location is just perfect (if you go up the road, there's a kebab place you just have to try). Rooms could have been better, first 2 night we stayed on the 1th floor, it was OK, but then they moved us to the basment which was just horrible, expecially in the summer where the heat is just too much.

This place is great for budget travel. The staff are really friendly, they provide free breakfast, free towel, free laundry, and only a small deposit for a locker in your room, which you get back when you check out. The sheets were folded neatly on the bed when I got there, so it was welcoming AND I knew they were clean! Staff are so helpful, I can’t say that enough! And at around 17 USD per night, you really can’t go wrong! Great location—close to Old and New Towns, shops, restaurants, scenic views, etc.

The location is quite good, easy to reach and well equipped kitchen facilities. Wifi, lounge, overall a pretty chilled out place. Lockers right beside the beds are nice as well, so good security in that sense. The shared bathrooms were decent. We had lousy rude roommates but not the problem of the hostel.

They allowed us to change our reservation at the last minute (due to unforseen circumstances) for no charge and we appreciated that. The night staff sometimes sleeps quite solidly and you have to ring the bell repeatedly, but just keep on trying they will get up eventually.

Lots of cool travellers to bump into, and overall the price was quite good. Also a supermarket nearby which is nice.

Room Tip: Guaranteed to get late night people in the summer months in the big dorms, if you spring for a bette...

the title of my review kind of captures it all. the receptionists (females :) made our stay in tamka gr8. everybody got a welcome beer right away so there was a real party at the bar (aka reception). they also took us out and gave as early breakfast. guests who stay in tamka for a longer period may get the privilege of sitting behind the reception bar :D my special thanks go to lovely paulinka! :*

Room Tip: rooms on the street side are kind of loud, but we didn't really care.

We spent only 3 nights there but it was really great. Not only perfect location in the center, but staff which was super nice and helpful made our trip perfect. Everything was clean and rooms were worth their price. Nice thing was also common kitchen were you could talk always with other travelers and atmosphere was very cozy. I'm sure, one day we will come back to Warsaw and then our choice would be again Tamka hostel! :)

Hey, Tamka Hostel was great !!! We all really liked it... It is just about 10 to 15 minutes walking from the City Center. The Hostel was all over clean ( what I usually do not experience when travelling ) and moreover, the staff was very friendly and helpful. They were willing and able to answer all our questions about the public trasport, clubs and places worthy to see.
We would go there anytime again and I would recommend this to all who want to experience Warsaw with a pleasant accommodation...

Tamka Hostel is an amazing hostel, where i could relax and have fun at the same time, it has a huge common area where people hang out. The breakfast is good and free :D
The staffs at the Hostel are so friendly and helpful, i wouldn't have enjoyed the most of the city without some adivices from Paulina and Agata. They definitely know the best spots in the city for a night out.
Warsaw is surprising! you find youserlf walking around skyscrapers and historic places just minutes ahead. Old town is my favourite spot, you'll find unbelievable cheap restaurants around with good food! but nonetheless go for a meal in a (bar mleczny) Milk Bar :D
Save at least 3 days for Warsaw and totally recommend Tamka.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
There's no doubt that the Tatamka hostel stands out above other accommodation in Warsaw. One of the biggest advantages is its superb location - the building is just around the corner from the most popular streets in the city, Nowy Swiat and Krakowskie Przedmiescie, and a short 15 minute walk from the Old Town. What does this mean? Put simply, you are within staggering distance of countless clubs, bars, pubs and restaurants.Other attractions of the capital city are also nearby: the business centre, shopping malls and numerous monuments - the Royal Baths included! With all these attractions around, you probably won't just be hanging round the hostel. That being said, it's good to know what this place has to offer: private rooms for 1, 2, 3 or 4 people (with or without bathrooms) as well as single places in bigger rooms: for 6, 8 and 10 people. We take care that the type of room and furnishings of the hostel suit each visitor - although the classical backpacker is well catered for because hostels are made primarily for them. That's why you'll find, amongst other things:- A common room with DVD player - an ideal place to relax and have a chat,- Free internet access (as well as wireless internet connection),- A fully-equipped kitchen,- Free coffee and tea,- Barbeque facilities.Because of the varied standards of our rooms and the many services provided on the hostel premises, our satisfied guests are also varied - foreign tourists visiting Warsaw, businessmen, organized groups and conference participants. Not only backpackers feel at home here! ... more   less
