The hostel was fine enough but the noise from the street was terrible. It goes on for a while into the night.


very friendly staff.... had a pleasant stay


Good hostel -however the showers were all freezing when we were there for 3 days and no action seemed to be being taken to sort it. Otherwise, it seems pretty well maintained.


Location wise its great, central to everything. showers took ten minutes for warm water.. the womens shower doors were frosted glass and people often left the bathroom door open so walking down the hall and you could see people showering..or if someone waited outside of your shower door you could see them through the frosted glass. Awkward. Also above a nightclub so noisy at night with windows open because no a/c. In saying that i would stay here again for the location.


Incredible staff--both of the girls were awesome at giving a good primer for Warsaw as well as answering all questions. Wifi was atrocious in the dorms and essentially unworkable. Location awesome with great food recommendations. Atmosphere was terrible--one person said hi in 3 days. Groups hung out by themselves. They have a guitar in the back room. All in all a solid hostel.


We only stayed there for one night, but the hostel was worth it for the right location - near almost everything. You would have to walk a bit but not so much to the old town (10 mins). There are also great views of the city from the hostel rooms. Bathrooms were not always clean, but we stayed for such a short time that we don't know whether it was the norm or not.


Super location, can't get much better as it is very central to many places. Staff was ready to offer suggestions on bike trips. Met a great group of friends and we all partied together. Wish the stay was longer!


Wifi drops in and out regularly Never had warm water in the shower Paid for breakfast one day only to find out there was actually none left and receptionist wouldn't refund me Only 2 toilets in the entire hostel Had to wait an hour after I was supported to check in to get access to my room The only reason I didn't check out early is because I couldn't get a refund


One of the best location I have stayed so far ( in the heart of the Warsaw City), totally clean, nice staff and helpful, but it does “not’ compensate! No elevator, not comfortable bed (very poor quality mattresses) and this is one of the top noisiest hostels I have stayed in!! cos no air conditioning that the windows must be left open!! breakfast not worthy to eat (some very poor quality bread, Jam, butter and orange juice tastes like tap water). The most unpleasant breakfast I have had so far.

Dear guest Sorry for no elevator but we are located in historic building and it is impossible to interfere with it's construction. We do not advertise that we have air conditioning and we are sorry but it sometimes gets hot in Warsaw during summer, but we have a lot of fans :). Hostel's location is very good, but as it is located in the center of the city it might get a bit noisy during party days. Our breakfast is very cheap, only 5 zlotys (around 1 euro) and we also offer fresh waffles


The staff is very kind. There are lockers in the room. There are some pubs closed to the hostel and it is very noisy.


This place is alright, nothing special. The outside of the building looks dirty and it was the loudest hostel I have ever stayed in. You also have to pay extra for breakfast and their facilities aren't that nice. It is in a very good location which is a definite positive. Overall I found it very cramped and would not come back.

Dear Traveller Our hostel is located in the heart of the city, close to everything worth seeing or visiting. Unfortunately we are not responsible for what the exterior of the building. Nightlife in Warsaw in quite vivid which is a good thing for people who like going out. Breakfast is only 5 PLN (1,25 euro) which is quite a deal, especially for freshly made waffles. Anyway we would gladly see you again.


Very comfortable and nice stay. Excellent place for visiting and parting in Warsaw :)


This friendly hostel is very well located on the busy Nowy świat street, with lots of bars and restaurants around. The staff always try their best to help you with anything and the rooms are fairly spacious with big lockers and a table inside. You can get some waffles as breakfast for a small supplement. Good experience overall.


Great location in Warsaw


Excellent location, most of the stuff are very helpfu, and the hostel atmoshere is fairly dynamic. How ever, almost all basically necessary stuff like towels and laundry are paid, not free, and the great hassle are the showers who only after five miuntes of simoultaneous running of the water in the both cabins, have decently warm water. If location is imprant to you, go for it, otherwise try a different place.

Dear guests We are happy that you appreciate our atmosphere and staff. Hostels are usually cheap places for young travelers. It is hard to expect all inclusive when you pay 10 euros for a night. Renting a towel costs 1,25 euro and laundry 2,5 euro which is quite cheap.


The hostel is nicely located, and the rooms are nice and comfortable. Unfortunately, the toilets were extremely smelly and not clean at all. Also, when its busy, the facilities are no sufficient. But its really in an awesome location and quite cheap, so will not mind staying there again

Dear guest. We clean our toliets twice a day and each time a guest gives us heads up that the toilet is not clean enough. Unfortunately some guests have a strange habit of leaving quite a mess in the toilet for which we apologise but it is hard to check bathrooms after each use. We are a small property and our facilities are usually sufficient. We have 4 showers and 4 toiltes for total of 34 guests that we can accomodate.


second time I have stayed, both time excellent!

they have super thin walls, I could literally hear what people said in the common room and reception even they didn't speak very loudly. i had earplugs but did not work, ended up sleeping with my headphones.


Very nice hostel. I have visited this hostel a few times and the staff were always friendly and helpful.


Grest hostel with really friendly staff to welcome you and chat with! They make a mean breakfast with waffles for only 5zł!! There is not enough washrooms for the amount of space though....but beds are really clean and super comfy!
