Good, basic accommodations for a very good price. The building is old and charming but be careful of the low doorways if you are tall. The breakfast included was basic and fine, and with such a large kitchen (and markets nearby) it is very easy to self-cater. The toilets and showers were not really sufficient for the number of people that the house can accommodate but are kept very clean. The wifi signal did not reach beyond the main common room. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Generally the hostel was ok, a bit run-down, but it's expected of an old rustic house. I only have two comments: it would be good if they got new linens, the sheet was too small and the covers were ripped. Also, their signs could use some work. For example, instead of saying that "making sandwiches will result in financial penalties" wouldn't it be better to say "please don't use the breakfast food to make sandwiches, there's a store across the street." Just something a bit m

Very good hostel. Staffs were hospitable and ready to help and give travel tips. Laundry service available. 10 mins to the main coach station and around 15 mins to the city centre. Very clean and good facility. The only concern is that there was no wifi access in room.

Very nice staff, charming old building, very good value. Free laundry and free delicious breakfast. About a ten minute walk from the tourist center of town, closer to bus and train stations. Highly recommend!

Close to the bus station but a 10 min walk to the main street. There are lockers in the room but only one room key. Beds are super thin and uncomfortable. Good breakfast

This hostel is very generous with its space; be it the room and the toilet. The hostel has great wifi connection as well. It provides free breakfast and has a fully equipped kitchen if you want to cook on your own. The receptionist was very helpful, especially when the electricity went off while we were cooking at midnight. Location-wise, it is 15 min walk to the station, which is quite difficult to find initially.

The location of the hostel is good enouph, 10 min from main station, 20/ 25 min. from centre (walking distance). The staff is nice and very helpful, they gave us somes suggesttions about to visit and help us with directions and timetables of the places. We could also keep our luggage in the hostel after check-out, that was very nice. The bulding is very cute and traditional outside and in the main entrance. Clean should be more careful in the rooms and in the kitchen.

A good, rustic hostel. Stara Polana means "Old Logs" in English.

Dilapidated, disorganized, poorly managed and overrun by its guests who party like the movie Animal House! The receptionist did nothing and the manager was worse! She is a child and had her boyfriend there petting her arm like a dog. Because of the low rate she's paid, she will not address certain issues. The staff's incompetence, ignorance, immaturity and unwillingness to apologize is beyond belief. Thanks for the lunch sandwich! I didn't follow rules since you don't enforce them.
