My stay was wonderful. The girl at the desk was incredibly kind and accommodating. It felt like a home away from home.

Clean facilities, a spacious private flat with a bathroom, helpful staff, at times the other people staying at the hostel were too loud.


The staff here were very generous and even let me sign in late and pay the next day. The interior was beautifully decorated, and had both kitchen and living spaces. It felt like a big house. Walking distance from bus and tram stops.

Decent Mexican themed hostel. The staff were friendly, the beer was cheap and the rooms were large and well kept. A few points of interest: We arrived late (around 10PM) at which point the hostel was not manned, so we had to check ourselves in by calling the out-of-hours number. Instructions are on the front door. There's a Chinese place called restaurant Canton (i think) next door. It doesn't look like much from the outside but it's easily the best Chinese we'd had.


Nice and quiet, which is what we wanted. Staff were very friendly and helpful. A bit of a way out of the centre of Warsaw, but walkable, so that was fine. Would recommend.
