Me and my boyfriend really enjoyed our stay here! Our double room was nicely decorated and it even had a special 'tree house' with an extra bed upstairs. The views from the window are great and the location of the hostel couldn't get any better. Karol and other staff members were very friendly and accommodating. The communal area in the hostel lobby is very social and it is easy to meet new people in this hostel.

An great hostel with a fantastic atmosphere. The owner Chris and employee Jasper are always around and always willing to give you great advice about where to go on the Island or just have a fun chat. Also, the beds and pillows possible the comfiest of the over 75 hostels I've stayed in.

It was a great stay! Staff and Hostel Owner(Karol) are great people. Location is amazing. In some rooms there is a stunning river view. It was very clean also. They have board games, library, even a playstation in common room. Thanks for best hostel experience.

I stayed there for only one night, but it was pleasant. Really nice common room and friendly staff :) Location is awesome! As someone has said previously (I read it before I booked myself) you need to hold the shower.. still :D but it did not stop me from going there, I hope it doesn't stop you too :)

The staff was very friendly and really tried to make me feel comfortable and at home. Unfortunately, there were only two other people staying when I was there. The breakfast is basic but filling and the location is amazing. It's 10 meters from the main street in old town. I'd recommend it.

Great place amd friendly staff. The onky down part would be that the shower could do with but of a touch up.

Check in was swift and the woman at the front desk was super nice and knowledgable. Some of the other staff weren't as up to date with what to do/ is happening in the city. The dorms are clean and bright with comfortable beds. The location is great!! Just off of the main walking street and near a stairway entrance to the canal. 15-20 minute walk from the central train station. Unlimited coffee and tea. Can't say so much for the atmosphere, I was here in the down season.

Stay was fantastic, place is in a great location and the staff are super friendly! Gave me some great reasturants reviews and day trip advice. Beds comfortable and rooms clean, only thing is showers need a holder for the shower head, really annoying having to hold it all the time. Thanks for the nice stay!

This is a pretty good hostel. Excellent location right off the long pretty main street in the old part of town. My only minor complaint is that ensuite bathrooms could use with some renovations. The staff in this hotel were amazing - the boys were so friendly and helpful and very good looking too ;)

This charming, well-located hostel ticks all the boxes. After 4 weeks in hostels, the caring English-speaking staff stood out. I would highly recommend this hostel.

Great location & always clean, some fittings/fixtures could use a bit of a repair (but nothing serious). The thing that makes this hostel so great is the two female stuff members. They were always friendly & extremely nice, they are by far the hostel's best assets.

Cannot complain about this place one bit. Great location, helpful and friendly staff, and a cozy vibe. It's a smaller hostel, but it's in a perfect spot and has a good common area. I miss Gdansk already...
