Not an awful hostel but bring earplugs. Guests being loud in the common room is very common, and there is a karaoke bar directly underneath. The location is fantastic due to it being basically in the old town and you'll find there is tons to do. The staff seem a bit blasé at times, for instance you need to be buzzed into the building when you first arrive and there was no one at reception because she was doing something else; they didn't seem to care that we were waiting.


Very nice place, the staff help you with everything. perfect location and the breakfast in the morning is the best! I loved my stay there.


Great stay, but need to upgrade the TP quality.


This is the old Mamas Hostel, which used to be the best hostel in the world in my opinion. It still has much of the same atmosphere and everything is almost the same, so I definetily recomended it.


Really awesome location and lovely kitchen, plugs right by the bed and reading lights. Only problem was we weren't informed of a large group of school children arriving on our second day.

Only go here if you like party hostels. Not only do people party in the hostel, they party below it and all around it. People were screaming and throwing up till 6am in the morning. I'm just glad that the lady at the front desk was quick to respond when I told her someone threw up in the bathroom. We left a day early and didn't even bother trying to get a refund for the night we weren't there.


Excellent position, a few steps away from the market square. Good number of toilets/showers, rooms have enough space and also kitchen and common room are big. For sure one of the best hostels in Poland.


Nice quiet hostel to relax for a few days, hostel is right in the centre so everything is close by. Wifi didn't work in my room but worked well in the common areas. Staff not particularly friendly or helpful but this hostel is great for a few days!! And excellent value for money. Cheers


The hostel was in a very good location.The staff was very helpfull,and the dorm was clean. The bathrooms needed to be a bit more clean, but still were ok and also spacy.


Cant fault the staff, as far as a hostel is concerned, couldnt fault it! Experience of going as part of 18 guys on a stag do! We had 3 rooms of 6, and even though there was only 4 toilet/shower cubicles, we didnt wait long for them to be free. For the price and certainly locality, would recommend!


too much noise, party in the hostel on the evening, we were really tired after a 10 hours trip by car. and people were not respectful.
