    Very good hostel close to city centre. The building certainly has its climate ;-). Although staff members are not always present, they send access codes by email. There is a large dining area to hang out with other travellers. There is even a gramphone !

    My friends and I really enjoyed our stay in Slowgate Hostel. The location was wonderful (a really easy walk to everywhere basically!) and the facilities were really nice. It has a friendly chilled feel and we couldn’t have asked for more. The free breakfast every morning was a fab bonus and the staff were really amazing! Would 100% recommend and come again.

    I loved staying in this hostel! It’s cosy, safe and close to town. The owners are really kind and genuine people and will tell you everything you need to know about Gdansk to best enjoy your stay. Super up beat and super chilled vibes. The breakfast is delicious and usually everyone gathers together for a natter around the table each morning - making it easy for people to make friends. I would highly recommend this hostel to travellers!

    I had a good stay at Slowgate. Keycodes are used to access the building and rooms. Reception isn't 24/7 but you can self check-in if you arrive late (you will receive instructions via email). Some people may not like the location but you can always walk along the main road (with the trams) if coming from the main town at night. The "vegan" breakfast was simple but a nice change to have.

    Considering the COVID -19 situation the hostel was very dirty. The staff was super friendly but I wished they had a reception so it would be easier for visitors to turn to them for info.

    The hostel is an old building, but is renovated quite nicely. However, the immediate district felt unsafe, 'capsule' beds felt cheap, areas lacked cleanliness and some of the things were broken (like my bed lamp). Difficult entry and lack of light made the atmosphere feel like a bunker. Breakfast and lounge area was okay though, and they even have a turntable!
