Pro: near central station and Centrum Metro. Nice kitchen. Awesome staff! Cons: no lockers in rooms. Three floors up. 4 bathrooms in total (2 downstairs), but I never had to wait.


Although it is close to the main train station, it's a bit far from the old town. However, the staff was really nice and the hostel was good: the kitchen is really big, they also have wifi in the rooms and there are laptops available for guests. The weak point: only two baths and three toilets, but it was everything very clean and our stay was perfect there.


cleanest hostel ive been so far; very (very) nice and cool staff, well equipped kitchen, comfortable common room; no real locker as you know it from other hostels (only at reception for small things) - but still possible to lock your luggage at the luggage room (but not really necessary); Location is quite good; 1 big minus Point: there are only 2 bathrooms for - i dont know how many people - so you have to wait, if you want to shower at rush hour

Thank you very much for you opinion. It was great having you as a guest and we are glad we could make your stay in Warsaw a pleasant one. ​ The two bathrooms you mentioned are in fact the only ones, but only on the top floor; two additional bathrooms are situated on the bottom floor and also available for the Guests. We hope that soon you will visit us again and maybe then you will get a chance to see all of them. :-)​


Good and cheap hostel on a nice street close to the centre and Plac Zbawiciela. The staff was helpful and dowstairs there was a popular vegan burger place. I highly recommend!

Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts. It was nice to meet you :)


The building that the hostel is in is very very worn down, but for £5 a night my brother and I could not care less! It was a really really good hostel, hot showers, nice staff and creaking floor boards! We didn't make use of the kitchen facilities although they all looked fine, and the bathrooms were very good. There was a little bit of dirt/dust around the place but, again, for £5 a night in July, we were both extremely happy with our stay and would recommend it to anyone. Cheap and cheerful!


Hoza is a basic hostel with basic amenities. It's in an upper floor of a communist-era apartment block, and gets very hot and stuffy. I was there during a heat wave and my night was a bit miserable. No fans in the rooms, and the only ventilation was a tiny window. Also, there are no lockers, only a large locked desk in the common area the staff will put your things in. Not very convenient if you want to quickly grab something and lock it back up again. Staff was very friendly and helpful though.


Great location. Only 10 minutes walk from the train station. Probably the smallest hostel i've ever stayed but it was decent. Good thing that you had the opportunity to cook dinner yourself but lacked a common room where you meet other people. Still i would say recommendable.


The hostel it is very well located, close to the train station and also close to the city center (15 minutes walk). Staff it is very friendly and helpfull. In addtion to that it have a very good kicthen. The only thing I could say about this hostel is that should have one or two bathrooms more. Because there are only two for the intire hostel.

Thank you very much for your feedback. We love to cook and hopefully it shows in our kitchen - always trying to improve it. As for the bathrooms - in fact there are two bathrooms on the top floor, however two additional bathrooms are available for the guests on the bottom floor. Hopefully, next time you visit us you will have the chance to see them all. :)


It is one of the best hostels in Warsaw. For small price you get very nice room, friendly staff, and the most important it's the cleanest hostel in Warsaw :)

Thank you so much for the comment. We want to bring everything what's best for our guests and such words always inspire us to go further that road :)


Hoza hostel is like the best hostel I have ever stayed in. This hostel resides in a really old building, built in the 1890s and whenever I used to look out of the window, I saw those old bricks still somehow glued together. It gave me a feeling of being in really olden times, a sort of haunted feeling, and I just went crazy there. The hostel is also very centrally located. Highly recommended to anyone, just for the crazy, unique and haunting, but charming ambience.

We are totaly amazed you liked the building. It's very beautiful and has rich history but it's tough love if you aim for modernity ;) fyi: we didn't get any claims about ghosts. yet ;)


If you want to visit Warsaw and stay in a nice hostel, go to Hoza. :) It's cheap, clean, well organized, perfectly located and, most importantly, the staff is really nice. They have always been kind and thoughtful to me.

Thank you very much for taking the time to grade your stay with us.


If you're looking for a hostel in Warsaw, you're done. Don't even waste your time scrolling through the rest of the list, just check in here. The location is absolutely excellent, and you will be close to anything and everything you will want to see and do. But more than anything, the staff are the best I have ever stayed with. They are constantly working to improve the hostel, but will stop at a second's notice to help you in any way possible. They are the best, great guys. Hoza Hostel!!!

Thank you very much for the feedback. We are really happy to hear you liked staying with us. Hope to see you again soon! :)


The WORST hostel I've ever been to. You don't get a key to the hostel or to your room and you need to ring a bell and wait for the staff to open the doors (you could wait for 15 minutes - we did once). The staff is minding their own business, you don't get the impression that they are there to help you, talk to you or even exchange an eye contact with you. One of the guy receptionists was also arrogant at some point. The bathrooms are small and ancient, one is even located in the kitchen.

Thank you very much for your feedback. It's a pity you didn't tell us a thing while staying in the hostel. The key to the biggest dorm is upon request as it's normally left open by guests anyway, although there is CCTV just in front of the doors to secure it. We always try to be the best to our clients and help then in every way and always have nice replies about it. I don't know what was the issue here and once again we are very sorry you didn't complain while here so we could do something.


There is an unbelievable shortage of showers in this place! When I stayed, the hostel was less than a quarter full yet I had to wait in line for twenty minutes to get a shower. The place should close down until more showers are installed. Also, there are no lockers in the rooms. You can leave valuable at the reception desk but that's not enough - every hostel must have lockers. in the rooms.

Thank you very much. We find 3 showers and 4 toilets for two floors enough most of the time. However if someone takes a shower for an hours, people have to wait and there is nothing we can do about it. Obviously, it's impossible to have 40 showers at one place. We are sorry you had to excperience any difficulties because of that. We resigned from lockers as there are a lot of stealing from unguarded room, while in front of the locker at the reception and luggage room we have CCTV installed.


This hostel is on top of the best vegan burger restaurant ever. And there's some cool bars in the area too. The bathroom was a little dirty on some nights, but other times it was cleaner. Not all the staff spoke great English, but most did. And they were nice, and helped me with posting some stuff. Kind of annoying having to haul your bag up 3 flights of stairs if you have a heavy suitcase.

Thank you very much for your feedback. We hope that your parcel arrived safely at home. We are trying to do our best with bearing with the staircase - but as the building is historic, our options are quite limited, nevertheless we will keep on trying.
