BE CAREFUL!! We booked a private room for two, but to get into it you have to get through another room of 8 people!!! Soooo private as you can see!! It was a lack of respect! CUIDADO! este hostel ubicaron 1 habitación privada dentro de otra compartida de 8 personas!!Si, como lo leen.Para entrar a nuestra habitación teniamos q entrar a otra en la cual dormían 8 personas y donde no pasabas desapercibido dado q el piso crujía. La habitación parecía a una caja de zapatos.

Very modern Hostel, friendly staff and very good location. You can reach the hostel easily by bus. (From the Airport bus 175 to busstop "Foksal") It is located close to Nowy Swiat and the most awesome backyard bars called pawilony. The hostel is very clean and even a breakfast is included.

The location of the hostel is very good and easily accesible. Also the facilities were clean mostly and beds comfy. What struck me was the unhelpfulness of the staff, during my stay only one administrator answered our questions and tried to help us. Everyone else just sat behind the table and listened to music or did their own stuff.

No common room. No curtains. It's not a bad place. There's just a lot better.

We have chose a mixed dorm for 4 people. The environment is very nice and well situated. Staff are very kind and helpful. The most important things is GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY with high quality of services.

Very beautifully designed hostel with great beds, very nice kitchen, nice bathrooms. Located in great area of Warsaw. Staff are being paid to sit on Facebook all day and barely even acknowledge customers presence. Could not even direct me to an ATM close by. A private room was ordered but have to walk through a dorm to get there so not that private. Could be a lot better with customer care but otherwise ok.

Chmielna 5 is a great proof that a hostel doesnt have to be an old dirty building. Very modern, great big kitchen, well equipped, clean and comfortable. Highly recommended!

Very central and well located, just a 10 minutes walk from the Main Train Station. Nice new facilities and nice decorated bedrooms, very clean and modern. The toilet paper runned of every day, and we had to go to the reception to ask for more... that was a little bit annoying... But for the price of the bedroom really recommendable!

Good hostel but its incredibly noisy outside! Its in the middle of the street with the bars, so be ready for not a very quiet night. There was a group of children that stayed in the kitchen (it was just next to my room) and they were screaming all the time what was very annoying. The breakfast is included but poor, you dont have any sausage of cheese. Kitchen is small but beautiful, the room is large (i got 6-bed) and the mattress is fantastic, very comfortable! The stuf is very helpful.

We had an ok stay here. The rooms were very clean and comfortable but there is not much in the way of shared space. Overall a good place to stay. One staff member was very friendly the others not at all. Great location and a basic breakfast.

Nice and clean Hostel, central and reasonable priced. The common area is actually small but you can still get into contact with people if you want. The dorm room and bath/shower were clean and staff was nice and helpful. Lockers were helpful, but since there is also someone at the desk 24h it felt pretty safe. The room was a little hot, since the heater can't be turned off at night for technical issues, and of course there were some noises from the street (bars near by), but overall a good place
