Liked: I love this hostel!!! Because they care about everything during your stay in Poland. I was surprised that the bunk bed there're curtains at two sides to make you have some kinda privacy when you sleep, maybe it sounds nothing, but I've never seen a hostel which is so considerate as Babel. Besides, the staffs are super friendly and helpful. I can get all of the information in Poland that I want from them. I think that is one of the best part of the hostel, the staffs are always willing to help us and provide the best service. Truely recommand you to come to Wroclaw and stay in Babel Hostel, you'll like it!!!

Disliked: There's nothing I don't like in this hostel.
