Nice hostel, location is perfect. Staff seems a bit bored.


nice hostel


place to stay,very quiet and clean.Close to all places to see in Gdansk.Would stay there again.


Could have more information about the town and its attractions (like guidebooks or more help from the staff). A female only dorm would also be good.


The staff were always willing to help, and full of local knowledge, which was great! The hostel was bright, beds were comfy and clean, as were the bathrooms. Common area was nice, breakfast plentiful. Literally can't complain. Would definitely return here if I ever go back to Gdansk.

Would definitely return! 10 min walk to the train station, and 3 minute walk to the center of town. Super clean, and cozy. Staff were really nice and laid back. We went in the winter so everyone had to take off their shoes to keep the carpeting clean, which worked out great, but I really liked having my slippers so my feet wouldnt get cold :)

Excellent hostel, couldn't be closer to the old town of Gdansk with cosy interior and friendly personnel. We've had an perfect 3 days stay!

It's homy and comfortable, and the staff is also friendly. The location is really great as it's close to many sightseeing spots. I accidentally walked by most of them :p The only setback is that there's only 1 toilet (with shower) on the floor I stayed (it accommodates 12 people), but there's 3 shower rooms so taking a shower won't be a problem. I really enjoyed my stay there and recommend backpackers to stay there :)


The hostel is close to the main attractions and you get breakfast...and that's about it. It could be much better, the bathrooms weren't clean. Most disappointing though was the staff. I've changed my reservation the night before arrival because I had to leave early and got an okay via email from the hostel. When I arrived though, they made me pay for two extra nights and weren't friendly at all for the rest of my stay after I complained about it. It would've been better just to not show up there
