Made a reservation for single room for 3 nights, paid in advance. Owner doesn't speak English and is rough. Room measures about 6ft by 11 AND the only where you can actually stand up is by the door, from there on the roof is at a steep pitch all the way down to about 8in.!!! I've travelled in over 50...

The service offered by the hostel was very poor. From the moment I entered to the hostel, the hospitality was not even close. The old lady at the reception was literally didn't care about the guests and was shouting from Polish all the time which I obviously didn't understand. It was supposed to provide Wi-Fi and ended up having No...

the hostel is in the center in the old town. In the middle of everything abd 1min from the river. The rooms and bathrooms are clean. The staff, an old lady actually, doesn't speak English and is very impolite and unfriendly. She makes you feel unwelcomed. I arrived early in the morning and she denied to keep my luggage in...

The other reviews below look fairly positive but I have to say that this is one the biggest dumps I have stayed in. I found it by accident as I was actually heading for another hostel nearby. I agreed to stay 2 nights at Hostel Przy Targu Rybnym and wished I hadn't. The rooms were rather chilly and not pleasant...

I was (somewhat desperately) looking for a bed and got to this hostel at about 8 p.m. after two or three other places had told me they did not have anything available. After overcoming the language barrier (the employee Maria did not really speak English or German, but Russian enabled a simple communication, and I later realized that the manager...

Quiet, clean, perfect location that allows you to wander through the old city by night without worrying to spend another few hours for getting back to the hostel in the suburbs. The toillet and the bathroom could be bigger and it was pretty cold inside but for this price I expected worse. If you are looking for a cheap room...

A cozy room, couple bed and a sink. The sheets of bed were not big enough for the bed. Small room without shelters or wardrobe for belongings. Nice common room with fridge. Kitchen utensils that you can use. Helpful staff but not really good in English. Its cheap and enough for a hostel.

This quiet and clean hostel is perfect to accommodate your basic needs while visiting Gdansk on the cheap; located right by the Wisla River near the Baltic Sea, is steps away from the old historical parts of the city with plenty of shopping, cafes, restaurants, museums, and entertainment. The main train station is about a 10 minute walk, and so...

Simple, clean room with an okay bathroom. It's not bad, but it's not good either. The reception area has a kitchen that guests can make use of. But with the price of 40PLN a night, you really can't really complain!

The good thing about this hostel is the location. It is located in the city center and there are a lot of restaurants and bars in walking distance. It is possible to park your car next to the hostel for a small fee. The rooms and bathrooms are really small (8 sqm for 4 persons) and a bit run-down. Except...
