Personnels don't know english. But in todays world if someone has a hostel and hasn't any staff who knows english then it must be a big problem. Because we had to express ourselves with our body language and it wasn't so good. But they were cheery people anyway. And the last night we heard a lot of men's voices and it's annoying because we couldn't sleep well because of them.


They don't answer emails. I got in to hostel after 5pm, BUT she couldn't find my booking even when I showed her the confirmation. She advised me to their other hostel but couldn't show the place on map, only name and address. I had to ask elsewhere to find the street. When I arrived to other hostel, the staff there found out that I had valid booking in B.D.! They kindly gave me ride back with car and I got my room. The hostel itself is quite decent but has very poor soundproofing and acoustics.


The Hostel was quite nice. It has a nice garden. The receptionists and the Cleaningladies were really nice. The kitchen is fine and the other common areas as well. we didn't feel that well in our room. It was small and dark. And if someone was smoking in the garden, the smoke would get into our room. (It was summer so we had the window open some, to get fresh air).


Our room for 2 should be max. for one person, because it was extremely small. There Was no air circulation so it was impossible to stay there without doors opened all the time. Maybe you should consider air conditioner? Shared bathroom on the top floor was a disaster! It Was small and uncomfortable. Although there Was one pleasant place there - garden/patio with a lot of singing birds in it :) The location was good (~1 km to the city centre) and the staff was OK.


We booked the hostel but although we got a registration confirmation and all rooms were available the hostel was over booked and we had to find a new place to stay. An online reservation system should be up to date!! And the staff was not very friendly and did not apologize!


The location was a short walk from the tourist hub in Gdansk. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The staff were alright.


The staff didn't greet us and they didn't speak english almost at all. There were no social room in this hostel or we didn't just find it. Water was quite cold in shower. Cleanliness was questionable. The hostel was restless during the nights.

Security: excelent - it is possible to leave bags into a storage toom after check-out before leaving the city. Location: good - close to the center. Staff: good - they dont speak English but at least they understand basic nouns and actions then respond kindly and helpful. Atmosphere: excelent. Cleanliness: good - however, aromatic spray for toilet is needed. Value: good - some beds have a tiny sponge instead of the proper mattress. Facilities: average - please consider to provide electric stove.


Nobody doesn't know english as a receptionist. Rooms are dirty , especially sheets.


I stayed here for two nights. The hostel is located just outside of the city center of Gdansk and is well-kept, clean, and has a nice atmosphere. The staff were very friendly, but some of them did not speak any English, which seemed to be an issue for some guests. My biggest complaint was the bedding quality: the two pillows I was given were pretty old and either hard or had lost most of their inside and were odd sizes. Between this and the thin walls, getting a good night's sleep was difficult.


The hostel is located in a weird area, very quiet and without significant movement during the day, but it's only a 10 min walk to old town, so that's great. The rooms are tiny, but I wouldn't expect anything different paying 60zl (15 euros) a night for a private double bedroom (towels inc) . The hostel is simple but complete, it has a little outside lounge area, kitchen and a tiny indoor lounge by the reception. It's great value for money considering the avg price in town is absurd (for Poland)
