Staff friendly but limited English, very clean but no recycling and really difficult to find. No lockboxes or cabinets that could be easily locked with a padlock, adding those would be good.

Locating the hostel without the Polish language is extremely difficult. The reception informed, in order to put up a YHI sign, they need an approval from the Government.I would suggest to perform a good homework, before you depart for the hostel. It is just a clean bed for you to sleep. Full marks to cleanliness.Everyone at the reception was very very helpful.No locker facility in dorm and the hostel closes at 12 in the night.

Good: Very large kitchen with many stoves, nice rooms, good beds, beautiful restrooms, the place seemed very clean, Lidl, Tesco and other stores within easy walking distance, ditto for tram station. Bad: Closest train station with departures for the airport is like 40 minutes walk away; easy to get to when you don't have any heavy luggage and can just take the trams but less convenient when you're schlepping heavy suitcases and the trams are full. Finding the entrance is not too easy.

El equipo humano que allí trabaja es excelente. Los polacos son bastante frios en general y cuesta mucho encontrar que la gente se dé a los demas, pero desde luego las personas de la recepción intentan ayudarte en todo lo que pueden y esto se agradece mucho. Muchas gracias.

Es un albergue muy limpio, las personas que trabajan en la recepción son muy amables y te intentan ayudar en lo que necesites. La cocina está bien y tienen una maquina de café. Es una pena que no se pudiera desayunar en el albergue y que no tengan una maquina con bebidas. Menos mal que muy cerca hay dos supermercados que estan abiertos hasta las 9 pm.
