Hostel's location is very good, because it's near the city center. 10 min walk and you are in Dluga street. Rooms and everything else inside is very clean and nice despite the fact, that some furniture or bathroom might look a little bit old. But this is not the reason not to choose this hostel if you want to save... More

Hostel is about 10min walk from the old town. Quiet hotel. Small but comfy and tidy rooms with bathrooms. Staff speaks English pretty poorly, but they try to help as much as they can. There's a terrace where you can sit and drink and eat, meet people, but remember to bring your own drinks and snacks they don't have a... More

I really recommend this hostel. Nearby is the Old Town and the most important tourist attractions . Very close to means of transport. .Amazing and helpful personel and tidy rooms. The breakfast is filling and worth buying.

We stayed here during Euro 2012. Clean and well run, very friendly and helpful staff. Good complimentary breakfast which we had not known was available. 10 minutes walk max from old town but area between is in the process of being upgraded and modernised. Very reasonable prices.

I confirm the other reviewer's impression on very friendly staff, just wanted to add that whilst for groups this hostel is a great value option, I wouldn't recommend it to single females - to get to it from the Old Town one has to go through an underground tunnel and then through a rather unhospitable, almost abandoned area of old...

We (a group of 15) stayed there in July. Close to the old town a short (5-10 mins walk), very clean and comfortable rooms (en-suite). Extremely friendly staff. Would strongly reccomend for visiting Gdansk if you are looking for a good value for money accommodation. We won't look for anything else for our next visit there.
