You can't have a better location in all of Warsaw. You are smack next to the tram, a block away from the subway, and further down is the major train station to all major cities.

I like this place, the price was cheap, room were cleaned up every day, friendly receptionist.The wifi was free and it has kitchen. Shared toilete and shower should be more clean but we have to understand it s just hostel not hotel so it s normal that it gets dirty very fast. I can recomment this place for your stay.
