Our room was TINY, if you had big suitcase, then you couldn't open it , there was only space for the bed. The other rooms with private toilet were nicer, because we could see it from the outside. The hostel is 15min from the centre, but still good location, the kitchen was very clean and the living room area cozy. The kitchen had a lot of mugs, forks,etc, but there are no burners so you cannot actualy cook. There was a computer which you could use. So good and bad things all at the same time.
Good hostel, a little far from the centre in not the nicest area but in reality only a few minutes to walk. I wouldn't want to walk back to the hostel at night on my own as you have to pass through a long underpass that doesn't look all that safe. The hostel itself was really good and clean. Would certainly reccomend to anyone.

We had a pleasant stay in this hostel. Rooms were small but spacious enough for us because we don't usually spend much time in the hostel. The location was good. It took maybe 10 minutes to walk to the old town and the bus stop for airport bus line was close. All staff members didn't speak very much English but we were able to communicate everything that was necessary. Some problems with electricity appeared but it wasn't really the staff's fault and they always fixed it quickly. Recommend :)
The hostel is in a very good location, within a walking distance from the main railway station and the old town of Gdansk. It's quiet and clean, and the staff is helpful, although they should make sure there is someone who speaks English at the reception at all times. It is a really good place to stay for rest and relaxation after a day of walking around the city - and there's even a backyard were you can sit and meet with other people who stay in the hostel.
Hostel is located next to the city bus station what was very nice. We also had only 20 minutes walk to the main train and the bus station and only 10 minutes to the old town. The area was quiet. We had a grocery store in our neighbourhood.
Difficult not having an English-speaking staff member all the time. Also I did not appreciate having two new people shown loudly into the room I was sleeping in after midnight. It could have been done quietly. I had an early flight to catch the next morning.
If you are just looking for a place to sleep, this is a very good spot to stay at. The rooms are quite small and there isn't much of a common area, but the bathrooms are clean and it's just a short walk to the old town. I'd recommend it.
Area was a little unnerving at night (although tbh, we rarely saw anyone past 10pm), but it was worth it for the SERIOUSLY GOOD VALUE HOSTEL. Quiet, clean and guests who caused no disturbance - perfect. Kitchen facilities were great and all of our meals could be bought at the supermarket literally next door :-) til next time!
The room was very clean and comfortable. However, the kitchen was quite dirty and there was no cooking facilities. Wifi access was limited, not in all area of the hostel.
