Nice hostel rooms were clean, beds comfy you get your own outlet and reading light which is nice. Showers are hot, but a little privacy in them would be nice... Kitchen was clean and you get breakfast. Nice hostel would stay again.
Nicest hostel I've been in yet.. 3 women room, no bunks.. the price was low but it was very clean.

Very comfortable, clean, and modern. Peaceful stay. Walking distance to city center and metro.
Loved that size of the hostel (small) and its location (near Old Town).
Apart from one rather sexist signs (18 year-old Brazilian supermodels? Come on...) the hostel was good value for money we enjoyed our stay. Breakfast was a nice plus too.
Hostel was exactly what we needed. We arrived on a very late flight and the last bus had already left. Got a cab over for 50PLN and there was still a member of staff on shift who gave us a lovely welcome. Room was comfortable and breakfast absolutely fine. We spent the whole day walking around different parts of the city and found we were never more than 20 minutes away from the hostel - great hostel, would recommend.
Super Hostel. Nice room. Clean. Very helpful and nice crew. The receptionist knew The Warsaw very well, I had a interesting walkin tour after this.

Great place, clean and friendly!
Thank you for nice atmosphere, I like HH very much and I'm going to recommend it to my friends.
Overall a descent place...location could be better...
I had a terrible stay at this hostel. I was harassed and woken up all night by the six drunks in my room. I tried to contact reception about this but the shutter was down despite the hostel advertising a '24 hour reception'. I was then woken up at 8am to find the police in my room.
The hostel was a bit run down but close to shops, restaurants and old town. The staff was either very helpful and service-minded or very confused and lost and had no idea what sights or activities to recommend, or where parks, museums were located. The beds were comfortable but there was a strange smell in the room. The kitchen and lounge was quite small and not very welcoming. The showers/toilets were cleaned every day but still didn't feel clean. The walls were very thin, bring ear plugs!
Nice quiet hostel near everything.Very helpful staff. They change the security code on the door everyday, and noting this down each time is a bit annoying.
stayed 4 nights, received a warm welcome on arrival and the staff were very friendly and accommodating for the duration. good location, reasonably quiet except for some obnoxiously loud Italians who were staying at the same time.. obviously not the hostel's fault though. WiFi coverage was great, showers and toilets were quite good and never had to queue. beds comfortable enough, locker for every bed. breakfast basic but filled a gap each morning! would recommend. thank you
Put better curtains in room 9, because they don't obstruct any light so you're awakened at 6 am.
This hostel was very good located. Every important part from the city is reachable from here. It was very clean and we had everything we needed.
decent place to stay. not very special, but still nice.
What a great place to stay. Absolutely wonderful. Staffs are fantastic. always helpful and not only that some of them were partying with us. Ample place and option to mingle with others in the hostel. Breakfast was very good and there was a special breakfast during Easter weekend. I will certainly recommend this hostel and will live there again if I am around.
