Liked: Spacious dorm rooms and big lockers, comfy beds, large kitchen and a massive breakfast included in the price. Staff was friendly, helpful and informative. It takes under 10 minutes to walk to the Old Town and a grocery store (Lidl) and tram stop are located right across the street. The hostel is hidden behind another building, which keeps traffic noise down. There is a candy jar at the reception desk. :-)

Disliked: Susan left no negative feedback.

Liked: The staff, they re lovely, and the breakfast is great considering the price you are paying, good beds too. It is a short walk to the city centre and there is a giant supermarket nearby and lots of buses and trams.

Disliked: My room was on the basement, awfully dark, and so is the kitchen, there are no windows, it s stuffy. The bathrooms and the kitchen were quite filthy, it is very close to the Old Town but NOT actually there, it s in horrible neighbourhood were I would be scared to walk around at night.

Disliked: Not dislike, but what could be improved is maybe find a way to have non-mixed showers. It's not such a big deal either

Liked: Everything. The standard of hostels in Poland generally is quite high, but this is my favourite hostel. Having spent 14 months travelling* on three continents and extensively in Europe this is THE BEST HOSTEL that I have stayed at. Everyone is catered for from the party animals to OAP's. The decor is clean and contemporary without trying too hard, the dorm. was also clean and comfortable. Cleanliness is of a very good standard throughout (like the majority of hostels in Poland), all the facilities a backpacker require are well catered for. There is a decent breakfast included. The staff are knowledgeable and genuinely friendly without trying to be your new best friend. Although I enjoyed Gdansk and would like to visit again, this was the only place where the hostel outshone the city. *India, Nepal, Saudia Arabia, Greece, Turkey, Israel, Palestine, Italy, Spain, Morocco, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Bulgaria, Romania, Slovenia, Austria, Slovakia, Croatia, Bosnia+Herzogovinia, Serbia, Macedonia, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Germany.

Disliked: Nothing. It should be the template for all hostels - everywhere.

Liked: The staff were nice, the room was very clean and there was a printer that I could use free of charge.

Disliked: The hostel was a bit further out of the centre than I had expected and to get into the hostel you had to go round to the back of the building which was pretty dark, so I don't think I would have liked that much if I'd been coming back alone at night.

Liked: Good, clean place, good value for the money. Breakfast was the richest I've ever had in a hostel. Guests have free coffee, tea and even fruits all day long. Doing the laundry was also for free and the staff was kind to take care that the clothes are dry by the requested time. Recommend the place!

Liked: Very friendly and helpful staff. Free breakfast, linen, towel, internet. Short walking distance to phantastic old town of Gdansk, makes it a pleasant destination for every time of the year. Great value for westeners as Zloty exchange makes food shopping, dining and culture attractions inexpensive, while electronic purchases and the like have already reached western price level.

Liked: A perfect hostel to stay in Gdańsk without doubts! The location is not exactly on the main street of Main Town but you take 10min walking to it and 8min by tram to Gdańsk Główny train station, so it couldn't be more useful! All the things there are very good and the breakfast is awesome! Totally recommend :)

Disliked: Nothing was bad!
