First of all, the personal is really friend, they speak a good english and are always there to help you. The room is clean, modern and the beds are very comfortable. The breakfast is pretty various and except for the coffee, everything is good.

The rooms are a bit too small but quite comfortable. The toilets are not simply not clean enough, also they are not maintained properly and there are bits of fixtures falling apart or showers partially blocked. It is however a relatively fair choice. Bare in mind, Poznan is a city with a huge choice in affordable hostels and in that... More

It was an exceptional choice to use a hostel, usually I use a hotel. But this hostel is located in the historical center of this impressing city of Poznan. Although there isn't any good window view, it is lokated near amazing place. As it is a hostel you must don’t mind sharing the toilets and showers (at least exceptionally). Rooms... More

I'm not usually someone who sleeps in a hostel when travelling but I have to admit I was quite impressed by this place. The purpose of my visit in Poznan was a summer school.

We enjoyed a good meal here of chicken and pork cutlets served with a large salad and potatos with dill. The service was a bit slow but the food was good. Only a few minutes walk from Stary Rynek but worth a visit.

POSITIVE: The friendly reception staff spoke good English. Neighbourhood is very close to the old town. The room was a good size (16). The bathroom was a suitable size. We had dinner and that was okay. NEGATIVE: It was quite a walk from the main train station. There is no lift. The bed was a bit hard, yet good pillows.... More

My friends and I stayed here in May 2015. The hostel has a great location - within easy walking distance of the main square. The hostel has a characterful small restaurant along-side it and breakfast is served downstairs (help yourself buffet style).

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hostel under the sign of cognition. Do you like traveling with a thrill? Are you a person who is curious of the world, who appreciates the highest achievements of our culture? Or maybe simply you want to reside in a place full of art and science which you have never seen before? We created our hostel thinking about people like you - true explorers. Settle down nearby the Old Town, take rest after your trip and start to chase the real adventure, feel the vivid everyday life of Poznan outside your window. Upon entering the hostel building you can feel the integrating power of the cinematography, then you can feed your eyes with the artistic photographs and this is just the beginning. Rooms dedicated to the greatest inventions of human kind are waiting for you on the four floors of the building. Coming upstairs you can hear the melody of mankind - piano, radio, vinyl - see how they were changing the world. If you have enough courage to go further, a real revolution will be waiting for you - a communication one. Be careful because the third floor accelerates a man and the fourth floor will get you high! We are sure that you will appreciate our rooms design which contain gizmos dedicated in each peace only to one invention. On the walls you will find a bit of gossips about the inventor and the invention - in three languages. Unique formula of our hostel makes your every visit an unusual experience. You will come back - for more cognition. Moreover during your stay you can taste moooore Poznan!;) In Explorer Caffe Restaurant we serve traditional cusine of Poznan, handmaded dumplings and much more! ;) Visit us and check! ;) ... more   less
