Too expensive for what it can offer to foreign guests. Location is simply good, just in the old town but extremely noisy for the same reason. Dawid was nice and servicial, cannot say the same about his staff mates. Atmosphere can be good, depending on who are the other guests. My locker and the door of the common toilet were damaged so those were easy to open from outside. This is more a club of friends than a well-cared accommodation, try staying at 'Old town hostel' instead.

this is a really nice ,clean and quirky hostel. great location! but... the lacking of a washing machine sucks and the place i was recommended to take my laundry was an extortionate amount of money! £18! so in future... please don't send people there. as for the staff... girl who checked me in was friendly and helpful. as were the guys that worked during my stay. but one girl... had a real bad attitude. kills the vibe. rants aside.. its still worth staying here.

Tiny hostel on the ground floor with big windows in all bedrooms facing the river. There's no real common room here, just two sofas in the reception/kitchen. Staff was nice.

Wonderful hostel with a really friendly, laid back atmosphere - great for meeting other travellers. Extremely central and just a few steps away from some of the main sights in Gdansk. Only downside was some of the bathroom doors being a little hard to lock. Thanks for a great stay.

An additional bathroom would have been good as we ended up queueing for a shower and to use the toilet. Also a mirror in the bedroom would be very useful and an easy improvement to make!

The 8 bed room isn´t really functional. We can´t even use the locker under the bed because it is blocked by another bed. It would be nice if you can put a curtain for privacy. Otherwise, the hostel is clean and bang for the bucks. Helpful staffs too.

I arrived at around 9 a.m. straight off a night train. Although check-in wasn't until 2 p.m., I had the opportunity to shower. Thumbs up for that! The nice kitchen and commons area created a sociable feeling. Two small downsides: For tall people, the space between upper and lower bunks may be a bit small and while staff members are very friendly overall, some could show some more initiative in telling guest about activities or giving tips. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed staying here.

Probably one of the best hostels in town. Lovely atmosphere, nice staff and clean rooms. If there would be a balcony or a veranda on the river side they will make the place top notch!

Riverside was a great Hostel! great location in the middle of the nicest part of town! great easy going, fun and helpful staff that even did some printing for free and stored my bag for 24 hours. Also free breakfast! Would definitely recommend this place and would stay there again!

Very good hostel in the middle of the old town. Not too far from the trainstation, and very easy to find. Staff were wonderful. I travelled alone, but luckily found someone to hang out with at night. Breakfeast was basic, but still good. Bathroom facilities could have been better, but loved the fact that there was one seperate private bathroom. Plug at every bed, underbed lockers. Staff were nice and very helpful. Bring good walking shoes.

I loved Riverside Hostel Gdansk! It is one of the nicest hostels I have stayed at. Not only was it affordable, but it was also in a great location. The staff was so friendly and helpful and I loved getting to know them. Immaculately clean rooms and bathrooms. While I haven't stayed at other hostels in Gdansk, I doubt it gets any better than Riverside!

One of the best hostels location-wise. You get a view on Motława river and old granaries from the window of your room. Also, the location is extremely great, right in the most touristic part of the Old Town, but you also still get as much peace and quiet as you want. Staff is very helpful - they really do take care of you while you stay there and go the extra mile to make your stay comfortable and adjust to your needs. Only the bed could be a bit less soft than it was.
