Overall if you just need somewhere to wash and crash then look no further. On Arrival we weren't really greeted at reception with the best of welcomes. 2 Gents behind the desk almost seemed annoyed we were staying. Gathering by the pictures in the kitchen, he was one of the 3 chaps that started the hostel. Overall average staff, not... More

Fantastic central location in the 13th century square. Watch the world go by from this 3rd floor apartment. Clean and modern Ikea style. Free wifi. Unfortunately during our stay we were woken by builders at 8am every morning, working in the apartment above so it was not very peaceful to say the least! Wroclaw is a beautiful city and I... More

We stayed in an appartment at Rynek near Witaminka bar. A place is in the pure heart of the city though there is a sufficient sound isolation thus you won't be bothered by noise from the square. A renovated room with a tiny bathroom is clean and equipped with modern furniture but we were missing any pegs or racks for... More

Came with two friends to watch a band. Stayed long weekend. Rented one of the apartments. Great location. Dead in the centre. Flat was clean and service in the hostel was great. Only reason for 4 stars is that the flat is quite small and the website got an idea it would be bigger. All in all its great value... More

Ok don't get me wrong this is still a nice place. Its comfy and very close to the centre. All we had to do was turn right out of the hostel cross the ring road and head straight to reach the square. But there are a few bad things.... So theres pictures on here and it doesn't seem to represent... More

We stayed for two nights at the Malarska St (Not Ruska St) apartment. The location would have been superb, if it was not for the major building works going on at the back of the property! The apartment is located in an old building with a staircase that, if decorated, could have been incredibly grand. The flat itself was newly... More

The hostel is located very close to the city center and is easily to reach by tram and bus. The hostel has big rooms and are clean. The staff is very friendly and also there are no complains about the common area and the kitchen. Free breakfast is included where you can get at a café close by.

Spacious apartment right in the center of Old Town, good equiped, with 1 bedroom and big sofa. Window view is great. On the negative side it was late check-in time. By the rules it was 15:00 but in fact we have checked-in after 15:30. Also I was not fully satisfed of cleanliness - there was garbage, hair on the floor.... More

I was in Wroclaw only for 4 days, the hostel is located in the centre of the city. Is 24/7 open with nice and kind people working there, always at your service and trying to help as much as they can. I highly recommend this hostel mostly for the service, close to old town and the room was also nice

Great location, close to cinema, restaurants, main square, trams, and bus to the airport just around the corner. Found it a bit noisy due to it's proximity to the street, and the building works going on across the street, but that was outside their control. Helpful staff who spoke English, and gave me advice on where to get the bus... More
