I must admit it's been a longer while since I last stayed at a hostel, so my first impression was, well, kind of confusion. However, after 2 nights I need to say it is a very good place for low budget stay in Warsaw. The rooms look clean, though very simple and basic of course. Bathroom (in a private room)...

Our stay in el hostel was very pleasant. It feels like home. It's located in a quiet neighourhood, yet not so far from the old town and city centre. The beds were very comfortable and the owner very friendly and helpful.

Friendly, helpful staff, and excellent value for money (presumably reflecting the fact that it's about a mile from the city centre, rather than at the heart of it), It also has a wonderfully quirky living room!

Incredible attention to detail. I am a bit of an 'expert' in hostels. This place does more than tick all the boxes... From the provided napkins to the thickness of the toilet paper... The quiet wooden beds... My stay is not over yet. Don't want to jinx it but this is the highest quality hostel I have been in, in...

My friend and I stayed at El Hostel the last 2 nights and had a lovely stay. We were greeted by a lovely lady and shown around - we were earlier than check-in time but they were happy to let us in our room early. We had a private room with bathroom - very clean. The breakfast was included and...

The bed! oh, the bed was huge, and extremely pleasing to my aching back. The morning welcomed me with fresh coffe and breakfast, although I guess it wouldn't hurt to add some veggies to the offer. The staff was very helpfull and friendly. Bathrooms were clean. I guess i would choose it again. In addition it is located very close...

Well honestly the only good things about the hostel was that the receptionists were friendly and the towels were free of charge. And everything else... To begin with, I marked in the booking program (booking.com) that I am checking in at about 11pm.. So I supposed there will be no problems with that. As it turned out reception is open...
