I stayed here in 2015 during the dog show in Poznan with my friend and our dogs. The place itself is really comfortable and well-designed. I really loved the location as it's very close to bars, pubs and restaurants in the city centre. For such a low price you get a free wifi, some hot drinks and a fridge available...

Retro Hostel is a very comfortable place where to sleep during visiting the city: it's cheap, 30 seconds by walk from Stary Rynek (Old Square Market) and it has a good connection with the rest of the city. They offer you rooms for 1 person, 2, 3, till 8, and they include coffee, tea and wifi for free 24 hours....

We were 7: 4 girls and 3 boys, so we got two rooms (4+3). Even though we all paid the same, the rooms were very different. The room for 3 had the beds already made and had more comfort than the room for 4, which had bunk beds and we had to make our own beds. Other than that, the...

I found it not comfortable, loud and off putting. Thin walls, noise travels well, you can hear every person walking to the communal bathroom for drunken wee at 3 am or to the kitchen for 7am breakfast. You can easily hear people talking in the next room. Place is not greatly maintained, walls just dirty, doors squeaky, electricity socket hanging...

Fantastic location, just a block from the Old Town Square. It was a little hard to find at first, as there's no signage outside, but was able to find it with the help of good old Google Maps. Right across the road from a convenience store if you need to grab anything. I found the staff friendly enough. The rooms...

Hostel is located right in the city centre so it is great. The staff could be a little bit more friendly. The rooms are spacious and tidy, so are toilets and showers. Stayed there in November, and the heating was not on so had to ask them to turn it on because it was too cold for me. It the...

Rooms are OK, Kitchen is quite good. Shower cabins could have 1 or 2 shelves for you to put things (a drill, two holes... 20 min work, but no...). Don't expect the staff to help you solve any problem, but if you get a good discount it is, no dout, a pretty good option.

The hostel is really very close to the center and itself very nice and clean... BUT very noisy! we couldn't sleep at night before a very important meeting. We could hear the people talking in the street, some visitors' party and at 6 AM personnel of the hostel talking to each other.

I stayed at this place twice for one night with my family. The rooms are very clean and made with love - they have different colors and themed wallpapers. The shared bathrooms were also neat and friendly-looking. There is a kitchen and living room to spend time in but the old town is so near (one minute by foot) that...

“Rooms to the side street are more quiet and the second floor was just renovated, so the rooms are newer there.”
