    Nothing good in this hostel. Old rooms dirty beds and rooms are very cold. Not renovated. The bathrooms are in very bad condition. It's not worth to go there. There are better hostels than this. It says that they have breakfast. But this is not breakfast like that we expected. It's very poor. JUST DONT GO THERE

    This hostel may be in good location and most of the staff was very nice, but the hostel itself was disgusting. The sheets did not fit on the beds all the way, there were spiders and spiderwebs on the walls, there were nasty marks on the walls, holes punched in the door, the toilets smelled horrible, there was no soap...

    It's a dirty, smelling, humid place. Rooms aren't cleaned before arriving, there's dust everywhere: not only under beds, but also on the chairs, radiator, in the toilet and bathroom. Lockers are metal and they make noise when you walk around the room, there's also problem with locking them. Staff is not taking away trash ot checking if toilet paper is...

    In the description of the room was info that the towels and breakfast are included. Towel was a small piece of ugly cloth and breakfast was not eatable (old bread with marmolade plus cheap instant coffee). I ended up with searching for a clean, decent towel in the city centre (not too easy) and breakfasts ate outside. Walls in my...

    It was conveniently located, within walking distance of every interesting sight. The hostel staff is very friendly and helpful. However, the shared bathroom smelled funny and by the third night it was very dirty. The showers worked perfectly though (great water temperature and pressure). The room floors were dirty, looked like they barely clean them. The entire hotel needs some...

    A friend of mine booked this hostel without reading the reviews. I was skeptical about it but actually it wasn't so bad for 1 star hotel. Our room had its own bathroom. And it was clean and proper. It is an old building but I hope that if more people stay there they will put some money to make the...

    This hotel has a regular location, outside Stare Miasto or downtown but it can be easily reached by tram or walking. It's cheap and clean, but not very comfortable. Wi-Fi never worked. Staff is really helpful and friendly, though.

    Definitely dirty! Location is great, but... apart from that... If you're older or having difficulties with walking, do not even try it :/ Most of the rooms are on the second or third floor, no lift. I had the room with a shower, so I expected at least the tiniest bathroom, but it was really room with a shower, the...
