Reviews by others
Homey and friendly atmosphere!
The hostel is red-colored, brick walls, and has many personal items in the lounge, creating a homey and friendly atmosphere than business. You feel being welcomed as a guest than a customer.
Many nice guests in hostel.
The hostel is continuously renovated by a professional house-engineer, Mr. Jacek.
Most other hostels in Poland are well stylized; The design is clean and clear yet a bit too typical and uniform. This means they are decent but too much business-like.
The hostel is right in front of the seashore and Hilton Hotel.
It is 5 min north from the main street (ul. Dluga), and 8 min east from the main train station (Gdansk Glowny).

A homey hostel is not perfect for those who demand delicate services.
Lockers are available but there is no personal one.
The heater is working when it is cold, but not all the time in Winter.
The internet wifi cannot cover the 4th floor.
No gorgeous interior or equipment. Rather, every room is simple and classic.
No sign board of hostel. It just says “Hostel” because the hostel is the oldest.
No fire in the kitchen.
Breakfast is not included but has the best bakery store in 2 mins from the hostel.
