Property Description

We are a group of enthusiastic, hospitable, open-minded people and before opening the hostel, we roamed the world, visiting many places, gaining new experiences and learning about other cultures. Recently, we have returned to Poland to pursue our passion and share our experiences with others.

At the Warsaw Downtown Hostel, we would like to receive our guests as hospitably as we were received around the world. We’ll do our best to make everyone feel like home. We have prepared comfortable, modern and clean rooms both shared and private.

Each room is provided with a separate bathroom, bunk or twin beds, fresh and scented linen and lockers. There is an electrical socket and reading lamp by each bed. Each guest can borrow a hair dryer and a clean towel.
In the morning, we provide all our guests with delicious sweet or savoury breakfast : for 15 PLN.

What makes our hostel really special is a big, common sitting room, where you can have a good time using the free Internet, computers, watching films, or integrating with other travellers. At Warsaw Downtown,nobody is anonymous. Each guest brings something to this place and we just try to keep up the good atmosphere.

Every day, we organize free events, such as common cooking, games, karaoke, film evenings, Polish cuisine specialities tasting or outings to bars and clubs. Also a fully-equipped kitchen is open for you, where you can freely cook lunches and dinners and share them with others.

We would like to show you Warsaw as we see it ourselves. As soon as you check in, we will give you a free map of Warsaw, show you all the most important and interesting sights, explain you how to reach them, tell you something about them and help you buy a ticket or book a table at a restaurant.

    I have stayed in a lot of hostels but this one was my favourite! So clean, friendly and welcoming with events every evening arranged totally for free by staff. I couldn’t have had a better stay and felt it was such good value for money! Couldn’t recommend more highly :)

    Had a great stay at this quirky little hostel. The location is perfect for exploring Warsaw and the staff were super friendly (especially Joanna!). Facilities are clean and convenient and they do their best to encourage a social atmosphere. Would definitely stay again!

    Warsaw downtown hostel is a great place with lots of security and facilities (bathrooms) are shared between only a few people. The staff were friendly and happy to help me book a tour to Auschwitz and Krakow. Would recommend to friends and family.

    The staff were amazing and made an effort to make the stay here enjoyable. Sadly for the 3 days I was here there was no hot water which made things a little unpleasant, but it was not the Hostels fault.

    Warsaw Downtown Hostel is a pleasant place. Security is good; you get keys for your room and locker, and the entrance to the hostel is gated. Beds are a bit flimsy, mattresses not very comfortable, but things are clean and it isn't bad as hostels go. The bathroom in the room I stayed in was small but sufficient. The staff were very friendly, and the common area is decorated in a lovely, vibrant way. Overall, the hostel itself was better than adequate, and vastly improved by the positive vibes.

    A bit far from the main tourist stuff and difficult to find the actual entrance when you first arrive but other than that it was clean, had a good kitchen, had security lockers, etc. so would still recommend if you don't mind walking a bit to get places.

    There was no hot water for two days. Location is a little far from old town. The event nights are nice, but not many people turned up for the social events.

    Pretty disappointed. Bedroom and bathroom were dirty. Found clumps of hair everywhere. No fans in the room, felt like a sauna. No breakfast included in the price. Location not so great but easy to get the tram/walk everywhere. Atmosphere was dead, not a place to meet other travelers. Hostel is hard to find and no one told me there was a code to get into the gate after 12. Had to wait outside for 20mins for a resident inside to come out before I could get in.
