Midtown hostel was really nice. Staying there felt like Staying on a really nice hotel. Everything was clean and beautiful. We had a reservation for a basic twin private room, but since it was january and there were only tee people, we got upgraded for a even better room for free. The only negative thing was that the internet connection wasnt that strong. I would totally recommend staying here!


The only small issue is that we had a very bad wifi.

A lovely little hostel that felt very homely. Not a place for big groups or those looking for a party but ideal for pairs or those wanting a chilled, peaceful stay. Great facilities, amazing bathroom, equipped kitchen and good location. I'd stay again.


Stayed in the private dorm during our weekend stay in Gdansk and loved the hostel! Smaller hostel, with clean updated bathrooms, and helpful staff. Very centrally located between the Old Town and the Solidarity Museum. Everything is 10 minutes away or less. We will definitely stay at Midtown Hostel again next time in Gdansk!


Had a great weekend in Gdańsk staying at Midtown. The location is great, really short walk to old town and the train station - perfect for exploring. Stayed in the basic double private room, it was a bit small but well presented and the whole hostel seemed to have just been refurbished as it was all pristine! The staff were super helpful and we're happy to organise our transfers to and from the airport. Only downside was the atmosphere, it felt like everyone was tiptoeing around each other.


During the off-season the hostel was great. I had a 4-bed dorm for myself. I just wonder how two toilets work for the season time, when the hostel is grounded. The breakfast was bread and cereals - a good start for a day. The staff was very helpful and showed also the not-so-touristic places.


Nice location...Nice decoration...The staffs are helpful and nice...I love staying here


Cool one.


Thank you very much, we had a nice stay at your hostel! It was all new and clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful.


The hostel was very nice inside, I wish I had known it was in a bit of a sketchy alleyway, but it was only 5 minutes from the main sites so it was overall decent.


Excellent hostel with excellent staff, they're constantly cleaning if not helping you out. Free breakfast is a great addition too. Hostel isn't far from train station so is in perfect location!


Very clean and welcoming. Apart from the mattress, which was prob a bit old, is an excellent hostel. Go there, you won't regret ;)


One of the rooms(deluxe double) is located on the top floor, and faces the main road which is very noisy with traffic. In the main hostel, they ask you not to make any noise at night which is fine, but they make lots of noise from 7am onwards. The kitchen and living areas are too close to the rooms so it's loud in the morning. Some of the staff were nice, others not so nice.They charged quite a lot for towels every time you need one. Location good but on loud road. No atmosphere in evening.

Thanks for your review.As you know, we're located in the middle of the Old Town(which is one of our advantages),so there's not much we can do about the noise from the outside.We're not a party hostel and our staff during the check in gave you plenty of recommendations for the City's night life.Guests are welcome to spend the time in the common area,but not after 11pm.The night silence is till 8pm and we guard it strictly.We charge only once for towels unless you leave them dirty in the bathroom.
