Incredible location and wonderful staff. The perfect place to stay if you want to experience the old town of Gdansk as much as possible. Everyone was helpful and friendly, would highly recommend.

Booked en suite room , we'll worth it , does have other showers etc but have to walk right through the communal area depending which dorm you are in .

Friendly helpful staff mainly students working long shifts.Free PC use,good breakfast with coffee available all day,my 6 bed dorm was fine with river view large lockers under the bed.Great location about 20yards from most famous street Dluga.No problem drinking local beers bought outside the hostel.

Great little hostel with a very friendly owner. Was clean and modern. Only downside was that some of the rooms open onto the communal areas meaning noise at breakfast time and the rooms at the back of the hostel get the noise of a loud boat bar until the early hours. Earplugs are, however, provided!

the hostel is located in the city center, and all the destinations can be reached on foot! The room is clean and comfortable, but it's noisy at the night of weekend. Some unavoidable noisy from outside the window is not good for sleep! The staff is very nice and hospitable, and give me many useful infomation!

Had an awesome stay at Riverside Hostel. Derek and the team are great hosts and really make you feel at home. This should be your number 1 choice in Gdańsk!

Great hostel location just near the old town, only really let down by the lack of atmosphere - perhaps this was because it was towards the end of the tourists season and he hostel was fairly quiet, bit mainly because (most. not all) of the staff were quite aloof and distracted. Maybe in the peak season the atmosphere would be better, but overall its a nice hostel

Perfect location and amazing views from the window of the dorm! Really friendly staff, enough showers and toilets and pretty clean. Every bed has a socket and self, which is very handy. I would recommend taking the upper bed, the bulk beds are not very high.

The location was absolutely perfect and what made it better was that the 10-bed dorm had an excellent view of the river with the Gdansk eye perfectly visible as well.

Ночью кто то пукал и храпел,мы жили в комнате из 6 кроватей. В первыую ночь, ночью кричали какие то посетители и что то разбили,приехала полиция и стало тихо. Хороший завтрак и персонал . Камеры для хранения личных вещей работали нормально. Рекомендую тем кому нужно совсем задешево заночевать в гданьске)))

Great and friendly staff. Perfect location. Fine space in rooms and lots of toilets and showers. Nice and clean. Well it would be nice to have a towel on the toilet. Will come back.

Had a great night in Gdansk! Perfect location on the river. Small and cozy but still social. Cute kitchen, but could maybe benefit with another bathroom or two. A fellow traveler (Michalina) had been there a few days so she showed me around and even helped me book my transport the next day. You guys should hire her. She made my whole stay awesome! Also staff works in 24 hour shifts and I think that's bogus but it didn't negatively effect me. Really recommend this place.
