Lovely hostel, great location & very nice, helpful staff. Would give it 5 if the bathrooms were a bit better - they were still clean, just one of them you had to hold to shower head & there aren't very many of them! Free breakfast was great & nice common area which was perfect for me travelling alone. Felt safe...

Our booking - 5 months in advance and confirmed twice by phone - was unexpectedly cancelled 4 days before arrival. The hostel employee tried to blame the booking system, which was obviously a lie. After some time on the phone they admitted that somebody came in with a pile of cash and booked the whole hostel and that's why they...

The hostel has an awesome location, next to the main street of Gdansk and as well to the river. Staff were super nice and helpful. However, some things could be improved. For example there were no lockers for the luggage, and the drawers for the luggage had a key, which didnt lock the drawer at all. Nevertheless the value for...

The place is located barely 10 meters from main street, just where promoters from striptease club relentlessly ask you to go there. The staff is friendly and comprehensible even that the place is not for people looking for parties. The free breakfast is a perk but the mattresses are really uncomfortable, not to mention the lockers under the bed are...

The best thing about this hostel is its location in the city, aproximately 20 meters form the main street, yet not too loud at night. Lobby feels like a small living room with reception. Although a lot of people were spending time there, it feels a bit quiet and not very "impreza" but I guess it depends on the people....

I booked this for a stag do (we were a respectable crowd for UK stags) and it was spot on. Was worried one room was not en suite but there are plenty of clean bathrooms with private showers. It is a small place right on the river with an amazing view from some rooms. The location is spot on and...

I was very hungover and trying poop, while right next to me a group of girls were brushing their teeth. I had to put toilet paper down to silence my plop. The TV was also rubbish and wouldn't let us watch the Euros.

A few points I need to mention. 1) Rooms lack basic functions such as power outlets that work, blinds, a lock on the bathroom, a shower head that stands on its own, toilet roll and hand soap. 2) over charged me when i left for reasons unbeknownst. 3) Can't seem to reply to emails explaining these charges. 4) Lazy staff...

This hostel is right in the middle of town. The room was clean and there was a good communal area to chat to other visitors with tea available! The staff were helpful. I had an en suite room which I was not expecting. It was excellent value. Not much variety at breakfast, but overall I had a great stay here.

We stayed at the riverside hostel for about 3 nights and we liked it very much. The best thing about this place is actually its location in the absolute center of the old City. You have to walk like around the corner and you are at the main tourist spots. The stuff is friendly and helpful too. Moreover we really...
