I like this place I have like "home"


This is great hostel with great, helpful, friendly staff. It's clean and comfortable. It's west of Old Town, close to a supermarket, and a great place to stay.


The windowindows were difficult to close and the blinds werr not efficient at blocking out the morning light. It made sleeping in after a lon night of polish partying difficult.


This place might not have the best location since you have to walk 30 minutes to the old town, but the rooms were clean and the staff very nice


Hostel is nice and beautiful. They have everything even a TV. One thing lack is towel. Location is ok bus is needed to connect to old part of the city but not that complicated and took around 15 mins.


We have only seen some at the reception at check in. So no question could be asked. The rest of the staff doesn't speak any english. Very nice and clean room. Location is ok but with convienient parking.


This hostel was hit and miss for me. In some aspects it was great: lovely kitchen, free breakfast, clean bathrooms and hot showers, nice lounge area. In others in was just OK; some staff were friendly, helpful and informative, others didn't have a clue were unfriendly and rude. And somethings were poor: directions on the website to get to the hostel; guys sort it out! The hostel was 3 tram stops from central station and about 25 min walk to the old town. Could be great but right now: average


Good beds, kitchen, fast internetinternet, free food. Everything you ned except TOWEL to use in bath.

The hostel wasnt in the very center but it was very easy to reac everything from there. Only downside was that you have to check in untill nine, later nobody will be at th reception. Breakfast was very good! And everythings else was good. Just like it should be in a hostel.
