    good location and supernice staff, only thing that could have been improved is to remove the lock from the door leading in to the bigger shower/ toilet room as some people looked the whole room while taking a shower even though there was 2 toilets etc in the same room, and there was lockable showers so no point in doing that.

    This was such a good choice of hostel and I would highly recommend it to others staying in Gdańsk. The staff are friendly and engaging. The location is ideal for a city visit. The accommodation is clean and tidy. A mellow atmosphere in the common room is complimented by a long wooden communal table and vinyl record player, allowing guests to socialise freely. This became the heart of the hostel with guests sharing food and drink together. Finding this hostel is like finding a diamond.

    Really couldn’t recommend Slowgate more! Very easy to travel to and from, with the nicest hosts you will ever meet! Everything was very clean and the environment was so calming and friendly. Such a welcoming experience, would stay longer if I could!

    To be honest this hostel is very neat. It is super well maintained. The environment is very calm and it’s hard to be bothered by noise. There is usually just one person working there but since it’s not a huge hostel that is enough. He was pretty cool because he helped me checking in and gave me facilities with the time of the check in as well. The breakfast in the morning is a plus. It’s is about 20 minutes walking from the old town and 5 minutes by train which is next to the hostel.

    Anna was really nice and contacted me some days before my arrival, my flight got delayed so I came much later, but still I received help from her to find a way to arrive and check in. Everything was clean.

    Situated a 15 minute walk out of town, the location is not too bad — there are a few food joints around the corner, as well as some hidden sights. The hostel felt secure as there are different keycodes to enter the building and to enter individual rooms. I stayed both in the capsule-dorm and the regular one — both are very basic (but maybe of questionable cleanliness), with the capsules being the wonkiest I've been in so far. The big breakfast table is indeed good for making new friends!

    The location of this hostel (which I understand can’t be helped) was very shady and derelict. For a solo traveller I didn’t feel safe so made sure I came home during light hours. The first day I came there was a puddle of urine on the staircase in the building. There were frequently creepy men standing on the street outside or waiting just outside the gate. The only other issue I had with the hostel is that there are only two toilets for the entire place. And only three showers.
