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.


Great place to stay. Close, clean, quiet.


Nice little hostel but expected more for the price.


Hostel is small, but good. Its just apartment with many rooms. It was hot in the room during the summernight, because there was no airconditioning.

Thanks for being so kind and helpful! For most tourists you are the first contact in Danzig and your warm welcome made our day! :-)


In my decades of hostel experience, I would have to say Midtown Hostel is absolutely the BEST hostel at which I've ever stayed. It's a small hostel and has a very family-like atmosphere. The rooms, beds, and lockers are slightly above average. What makes Midtown Hostel so special is the staff. They are WONDERFUL! They are so helpful; there is no question they will not answer. And, when they are not busy answering questions, they are cleaning constantly. Breakfast each day was great.


Good place with amazing staff.


Staff were really helpful and knowledgeable. Free breakfast was great!

The hostel was clean and cozy, and staff were female staff were friendly and helpful. Only downside is the quiet hours between 11pm and 8am.

Needed to wait for a shower a bit


Great hostel in an excellent location! We had a private room and loved it, very big room with comfy bed. The receptionist was very nice and gave us great places to go to.


Very nice hostel! A few things though, that could be improved: Extra Toilette (2 are not enough); a little shelf and electricity plug at each bed.
