Liked: The staff were really nice and helpful, there was a free (simple) breakfast in the morning. The location is great and the hostel is nicely set up.

Disliked: Everything was good but if I had any suggestion it would be to fix the fan in the room I stayed in. It was way too hot for sleeping, especially since one entire wall is windows which face the sun all day.

Liked: Really friendly atmosphere. The staff gave us loads of tips about the best places to visit and the best bars for a night out. The room had a great view of the river and was really big (we stayed in the 10 bed room). You can't really get a better location for a hostel in Gdansk, it is right next to the main street. I also really liked the decor and the communal space was great for chilling out in during the day and in the evening

Disliked: I can't think of anything really, the breakfast wasn't really to my taste - quite cheese heavy and in the UK we don't really tend to have cheese for breakfast. I would have been happy with just some cereal.

Liked: Actually it's one of the best hostels I've ever lived in. Huge lounge zone with tv, music, games (PS3 available). Staff is friendly and ready to help anytime. Breakfast are also included. P.S. It's situated in the heart of the beautiful city of Gdansk!

Disliked: Honestly I didn't found anything I disliked. Hostel had everything you need for making your staying comfortable.

Liked: The location of this hostel is great. Next to the big pedestrian street, next to the riverside. The staff was friendly and mostly helpful. The rooms were light and spacious and with a river view. comfortable beds and enough plug sockets for everyone. I didn't need my multiple socket at all. And of course the included breakfast.

Disliked: there could be two or three more showers. sometimes there was a lot of trafic. nothing more to complain...

Liked: Location is perfect, its easy to find - when you come out fo the rail station/bus stop walk right for about 5mins, you then want to across the road towards the old town and walk straight, you'll go past Neptune Fountain and its the turning on the right by the bridge/gate. Close to 24hour shops. Hostel was clean and tidy. Self catering facilties. Note: if you are getting on the bus to Sztutowo concentration camp, it is behind the main rail station and there are only a couple a day. Bus to the airport is any easy ride only about 30mins. Gdynia and Sopot are really close by train, cheap and the beaches look amazing.

Disliked: There is a club that opens till 6am on the otherside of the river so if your room faces the river then you may find it hard to sleep. It didnt open on Sunday or Monday night though. There was also a group staying at the same time and they made lots of noise every night until 6/7am. Where the common room is adjacent to a few of the rooms you will have problems, ours was down the coridoor but the sound carries and we could hear everything, it was impossible to sleep. I stayed in the double room - it is very small and no storage, if you are a couple then get a twin room, they have a double and single bed and storage for your bags, one of the twin rooms even has a loft bed! Beakfast was very basic, literally some sliced bread and cheese and butter, they put out salami one day too. supermarket in the shopping centre opposite the train station is cheap, you can get cereal/yogurt etc there for really cheap and keep it in the fridge.

Liked: The location is great! Just off ul. Dlugi and within walking distance of all the sights in Gdansk. The rooms were clean and spacious, everything felt new and well taken care of. The shower was excellent for a hostel - lots of hot water, great water pressure and a heater in the bathroom to keep it toasty and warm.

Disliked: My room was freezing! I don't think the radiator was working. Other than that... there is not much to complain about. Perhaps breakfast could be improved with better variety of food.
