Hostel is not bad in overall, if youre just looking for a place to sleep, this is perfect for you. 10 minutes walk from the center of the city, well connected with the airport and train station. Nevertheless the staff does not speak english and the hostel is not really clean. Showers are the negative point as you have to push the faucet over and over again to have water all the time.

We sent email and sms about coming in after 5 pm. But when we come in, our rooms were rented. They had left us on the street, at the middle of night. After five hours, at the morning we found another hotel, but spend 4 times more money and had sleepless night. Deposit was not returned. Worker was speaking only in polish, was impossible to communicate. First time after spending lots of nights in hostels, we had such terrible service.

I spent just one night there with my gf, we had a private room very nice and clean and the hostel was very well located (only 2 bus stops from main train station and some 20min by foot to the main square) and with all facilities one might need, including wifi. I'd definitely recommend anyone to stay there, it's cheap and ideal for any kind of travel.


The staff were all very nice and incredibly accommodating. We arrived very early in the morning and they had a room ready for us to recover from our overnight bus journey. The place was cleaned daily so it messes and common living spaces never got out of hand. The biggest negative thing about this hostel was the noise. We had a private room which we thought would cut down on disruptions from other guests but the walls were paper thin and we heard everything whether it was beside us or downstairs


I found the staff really helpful, though I am not quite sure about their level of English. We were given a room with a bunk bed on the first day because no other room was available, but on the next day we were offered a better room automatically without asking for it - nice! The atmosphere was poor but I guess it may be better if you arrive in the high season (unlike us). Bathroom was really small but sufficient. Internet was not working on the first evening. The kitchen lacks a cooker I think.


Easy to find due to the large sign that can be seen from the road or a bus station. Good location, a ten minute walk to the city center entrance. Cheep rooms, nice little kitchen downstairs and you can't beet the view to the terrace ;) Mattresses in "marriage-bed" rooms were made of sponge, but I found them comfortable enough. Bathrooms were great, except they need a counter to put your things on.
