The method I used to select the best Hostels in Warsaw

There are a lot of great hostels in Warsaw but I selected what I think are the best. I went through thousands of reviews and selected the following hostels taking into consideration the following conditions:

  1. Central location (either close to the central station or to the old town).
  2. Best value for money.
  3. Great standard of cleanliness
  4. Good Comfort
  5. Staff friendliness
  6. Facilities

I either stayed or visited almost all of the hostel listed in this article and I personally talked to the owners or to the hostel management and staff. This article contains my own opinion, after selecting all the hostels which excelled at the above conditions.

All the hostels with an average review below 8.0 on were excluded from the research.

This is arguably the best hostel in Warsaw. What makes it so good? The amazing staff. The central location. The original style. The competitive price. It was voted as one of the best hostels in the world in 2006!

Whether you are a solo traveler, a couple or a group of friends this is the hostel for you.

You can get cheap beer at the bar, socialize in the common room, join the pub crawl (organized by the hostel), play games, learn how to cook pierogi (traditional polish dumplings) or just use one of the desktop computer (you have to pay for computers but the wifi is free if you use your own device) to figure out your itinerary in the city.

This hostel is conveniently located in the center of Warsaw (near the central station) so it’s a good place to start exploring the city.

What makes this hostel particularly unique, not only in Warsaw but in the whole world, are the rooms. Each private room is decorated in a different style: the photography room, the Danish room, the Japanese room, the football room.
