Very good hostel, close to the central railway and bus stations, quiet and clean. The staff was very helpful and kind!
They didn't have our reservation from Hostelworld? We arrived having reserved a private room, but they didn't have it available so we ended up sharing a room with others. Our roommate was a very strange person that made us feel uncomfortable with her pornography, walking around naked (with my boyfriend in the room), dirty words, etc. I told the staff about it and they didn't do anything. The staff weren't very friendly and open towards us, this is the first time in over 20 hostels I've stayed in
I did my reserve with Hostelworld and I paid the reserve fee. The same day I had to stay in this hostel I received an email telling me that was a terrible mistake and they don't have any beds for us. There's no other cheap hostels in Katowice and was the same day, so we had to sleep our last night in a bench in the airport. So my opinion of this hostel is bad because of their administration and coordination with Hostelword. In addition, the hostel didn't make responsible of the mistake and fee.
Location is really good. from main station to hostel takes about 5 minutes by foot. The room and kitchen are little bit small. Common room, toilet and showers are quite clean.
Convenient located hostel near the station - good for staying overnight. There is not much to do in Katowice however. Staff were friendly and helped to get lost property back from the bus.
Perfect location. Really friendly staff. Room 6 was right next to the kitchen so that was pretty noisy in the morning.
Hostel was good and staff friendly. Unfortunately, on enquiring about maps and local info, all I got was a photocopy of a google map. Far better info from the helpful tourist info office but time wasted in finding it.
Very pleasant and central place to stay. The staff are really friendly and helpful. The staff work hard at keeping the hostel clean and up to scratch. If pushed the only criticism (and advice) to the management would be to invest in a steam mop to keep the floors clean and hygienic as well as making the task easier for the staff. Would stay again and recommend.
placed in a good position and with bright and clean rooms, only minor problem is that many rooms face a noisy road.
Hostel staff at reception were very helpful and spoke good english.
Not a bad hostel, not much going on but great for a few nights. Respecatbly priced and very comfortable. Can be a little noisy at night as the sound of people moving around the hostel really travels, though they do try enforce quiet time after 11pm. Kitchen was available and there are several bathrooms. Didn't stay long enough to be able to really say how good this place was but was satisfied with it for the night we stayed. Good beds.
Good hostel for a visit to Katowice. It's a short walk to the the main square. Tram to the station is across the road and takes about 10min the staff is very helpful Aussie Ian looked up bus times so we could get to Bouzov Castle. He also printed our train tickets. I Highly recommended Katowice to brake up the train trip to or from Prague!
The hostel didn't have my reservation and the manager wasn't helpful at all!

Last night in Poland before early plane.. Awesome staff and location.. really fantastic place definitely recommend!
Well... this hostel is not like the big hostels that you can found in europe big cities, katowice is not a turistic city so I think is imposible compare this hostel with others in big and turistic cities... considering that... the hostel is very good, it have a good localization (near katowice train station), the room is big but the bed not so good
Really nice room (the furniture even smelt new, though they could have spent a bit more on the mattress), brilliant convenient location and lovely staff.
