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.

Disliked: Nothing!

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!

Liked: near the city centre, very helpful staff and extra facilities like a blow-dryer and iron available for free, the best breakfast I ever had in a hostel: boiled eggs, tomatoes and cucumbers, two kinds of meat and cheese, two kinds of cereal, milk, jams, honey, cream-cheese, in one word top-notch, very safe and everything was new and clean, lockers in dorms. I cant say enough nice things about this hostel:)

Disliked: although everything was new the toilet in the 4 bed ensuite dorm felt a bit damp but not unbearably. also, and this is not in any way the hostels fault, the walls are kind of thin so i could hear some door slamming and noises at night but that's just some guests not realising there's other people on the planet besides themselves.
