Riverside Hostel
Ranked #24 of 225 Speciality Lodging in Gdansk
Reviewed 4 August 2016

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 money is great and I will absolutely recommend it for a short stay in the city.

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 of no use since it can't lock. Still it's a fair deal if you're looking up to visit Gdansk.

Room Tip: Most of the rooms are facing the channel so during summer humidity draws mosquitoes. Ask for one tha...

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. The rooms are cozy, the beds are comfier. Lockers were a bit DIY, didnt seem extremely reliable and sometimes needed a little bit of effort to open. Hostel might improve the cleaniness of bathrooms, but it is far from disgusting. The internet goes through an app which its annoying and the internet itself is unreliable, sometimes not working at all.

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 right by the high street, although a bit of a walk from the train station. The staff were very friendly. Breakfast was mediocre but a bonus to be honest! Bargain. Only one key a room though and yes I do note some of the other reviews here about small things that could be improved.

Room Tip: One room has a river view.

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

Avoid if you can.

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.
