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.


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)

Just an average hostel, good for the money I paid. The staff hardly spoke English, and on the signs it says we can eat in the common room but when I ate in the common room they told me to leave and that I cannot eat there. Easy to find, close to old town.
