Hostel Helvetia is in a great location...within walking distance of Old Town, the Palace of Culture and Science and plenty of places to eat and shop. A code is required to enter the building and it changes every day so security is not a concern. There are also individual lockers (which are quite large) in the rooms and a locked... More

Very friendly staff who helped me loads while I stayed. The dorm was clean, great price for it. I was moved to a female dorm due to an 'unsavory character' in my dorm and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. I can't recommend this hostel enough!!

The location was great, just by the old town, and we also liked the facility. However, the bathroom was not clean, and it was not possible to lock the showers. Also, the beds were not so clean, as the hostel only cleans the linen part. The breakfast was okay, but not worth the money. However, we still liked the hostel... More

this was the perfect mix of things I love. Quiet enough to sleep easily but still has an active, friendly common area. Close to things you want to see, but still safe. The staff was excellent and super helpful. The place was quite clean! Great hostel for sure!

“Check on the website for the exact location of the rooms. Room 6 (3 persons female dorm) is the first after the common room so be prepared for some noise but I still like this one because there are no bunk beds !”

“If you're a woman, absolutely choose the 3 bed women's dorm. Sometimes you might be the only one there and you will have the whole place to yourself!”
