Sympatyczna i pomocna obsługa. Hostel położony w niesamowitym miejscu tuż przy Gdańskiej Starówce. Bardzo czysto, przyjemnie za niewielkie pieniądze. Polecam w 100%

The lady who received me was too serious but somewhat helpful when asked for information, while the man in reception desk didn't show any hospitality. The kitchen has NO STOVE so you cannot cook even a simple pasta nor hot soup. Overall, this is a good option for staying, although some details can be improved: the door of dormitory 7 got open several times by the blowing wind coming from the windows which have to be open since there's no air conditioner nor a simple fan. It's too hot in Summer.

One of the greatest and safest locations you can find in Gdansk. Facilities a bit out of date, but clean. Good value for money! Staff always helpful, but wired booking system! You may end up in another type of room, you haven’t agreed on, then your original booking! The situation has been resolved by the staff after a long unnecessary stressful discussion.

The hostel was in the perfect location just steps away from one of the main tourist areas but still off to the side so a bit quieter. it would be nice if there were some more bathrooms and showers though. Also a mirror in the rooms would have been nice especially considering there were only a few bathrooms.

we were 5 persons and stayed 4 nights: great, cheap place, very very close to the main street (Dluga, 1-2min) and the train - bus station (15min), I recommend it !

It's more a language school than a hostel, but has good value for money still.

ABSOLUTELT NOT RECOMMENDED!!!!

Owner Comment (Hide)
We are really sorry that you are so unsatisfied. However, if you can, please tell us why is that? We do not understand it especially because you have written the comment for the night 28-29.04.2014 in which you did not come to our hostel. You called us and cancelled it. Therefore we really do not understand your low rate. Regards, Universus staf.

They were renovating the exteriors but it didn't affect on my stay anyway. Very nice rooms and not that many other travelers so very peaceful place.
