“Great Place”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

We were looking for a hostel and found the flamingo hostel online. The price looked right so we went there. They sent us to their other building but this was not a bad thing. At first, I was a little frustrated that we had to go somewhere else. We were a couple and in the other building we got a room with just two beds which was perfect. The room was nice with a tv and the kitchen was nice. There was also a balcony to hangout on. We had a great time here. We were sad to leave it.

Excellent value.. staff good.. good recommendation from Paul on Reception for food. Facilities excellent and location fantastic. Breakfast little disappointing but was complimentary. How secure? Not sure.. any young person could be buzzed in and walk by Reception as no key or identity checks.

I'm so glad we stayed at this hostel. It was excellent value for money and the location (just off the Main Square) was terrific. We had a private room with en-suite which was clean and comfortable. The hostel felt safe and the staff were friendly. Its only fault was that we couldn't turn the heating down/off in the room meaning we had to leave the window open, and the street was quite noisy on the Friday and Saturday night. Other than this however, the great things about this hostel certainly made up for it

I stayed here for 4 nights as part of a recent euro trip....www.euro-by-rail.blogspot.com. (includes photos of the Hostel). The hostel is in a great location, just off the main square. Good security as entry is only allowed after pressing intercom. Friendly staff on the reception are very helpful. The rooms them selves are kept clean. I stayed in 12 person mixed dorm, with a great mix of people. Lockers are available in each room, and the bunks are comfortable. Each bunk has their own light and power points. Clean shower room is in the corridor, with 3 showers - although the hot water is a bit sparse. Nice common room and kitchen area with good facilities. Breakfast is included and is a case of make it yourself. Great value at about £8 a night.

The hostel is at a very good location. The staff were very friendly and helpful at all times! We were lucky because we arrived at a special celebration and got free donuts, lol.
Also, the rooms and beds are very comfortable, as well as the common areas

Stayed end of august/start of september 2013 with a group of 4 guys. All had a great laugh and met up with others there who made it a holiday to remember. Staff were absolutely fantastic and always willing to help and have a chat. Don't think i ever saw one without a smile on their face.Would certainly stop again if travelling to Poland.

Reviewed 17 August 2013

This hostel is located a 20 second walk from the main square which is a major plus. It also is next door to a McDonalds and opposite a small convenience shop. I stayed in this hostel with a female friend for 2 nights. Unfortunately it is not one of the better hostels we have stayed in in Europe. The first night we were put into a 6 bed dorm and we managed to sleep for about an hour with all the screaming and noise in the hallways. The second night we stayed in a 4 bed dorm with a private bathroom which was great. However, our room was directly at the front of the street, and with a night club opposite, it was impossible to sleep. Closing windows at night was not an option due to the intense heat in the rooms. I don't think we would choose this hostel again. The staff are extremely helpful though, and helped organise many buses etc.
