I should have checked to see if the hostel had an elevator, what were the laundry facilities and I should have requested a bottom bunk bed. The paid breakfast was decent for the price. The other people I shared the room with were nice and I liked the location.
Good location and good value for money. Breakfast is quite good unless you are expecting a Swedish buffet in a hostel. The mop for the shower is indeed old but showers and toilets are (or look) quite clean to me. Staff was quite nice and helpful. I like the idea of the code for added security as well as the free lockers.
A really nice hostel, perfect position! Very colorful and clean, I immediately felt home there! Breakfast is included and the common area/kitchen is absolutely adorable.

I would recommend they use new mop heads--the toilet rooms were great but smelled sour. Large kitchen/sitting room. Staff is good to ask people to be quiet after 11pm. Kitchen is well organized with plenty of utensils/pots. Seasoned traveler, over 50.
Super. Helpful and friendly staff. Nice room.
If you're not looking for a party hostel in walking distance to the old town and a big shopping center near the train station, this hostel is perfect for you! Good location, clean facilities and friendly staff make this hostel the perfect place to stay and relax on your trip to Warsaw!
Good position and very good service, cleaning and support.

Liked the breakfast. Beds were very comfy.
Nice location, clean and friendly. Reasonable price. See you, next time in warsaw.
Great location and staff is helpful enough... The cleanliness could be better and so could breakfast
This hostel has it all. Good location, amazing staff and outstanding facilities. For a cheap price you not only get access to everything you would expect from a hostel, but also a free breakfast. The dorms are big and quite originally decorated. I recommend this place to anybody visiting Warsaw as it is also situated at a walking distance from most interesting places.
I liked everything about it but the cost of the laundry service.... Will definitely stay here again because of the value and location!!!!
Pretty room with helpful and friendly staff!! Common spaces such as shower room and toilets are clean, too. It was the most comfortable stay in Poland.
Very friendly stuff, big rooms, enough toilets and showers. Close to the old town and not too loud.
The locks on the showers were broken and I got walked in on whilst having a shower The wifi is rubbish
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.
Clean, tidy hostel in a nice environment not too far from the city center. There were crates to stow away your luggage, but due to a mixup with other visitors, that didn't go according to plan. Breakfast was very basic, could've been more variety. Common room was a bit secluded.
Staff very helpful - for example went the extra mile to print my boarding pass for free when I was having problems with it. Nice common room with cable TV, cosy area and lots of books. The kitchen had a good range of facilities but was a little small (as was part of the common room). Security was excellent - CCTV cameras and a code that changed daily for the door. Only problem would be that in the room I was in caught the sun the whole day so was far too hot some nights to sleep. Nice breakfast.
