The hostel room we stayed in was at 44 Dluga, across the street from the main reception and lobby. It is a very good location; it's right up the street from the Old Town, and just a ten minute walk from a huge mall and the bus/train station. There are also a couple of small supermarkets nearby, as well a bakery on the corner for breakfast, and an atm too.
The location pretty much makes up for the hostel's downfalls. Our room was located on one floor of the building, and there were about four rooms, all holding about two people. Unfortunately there was only one toilet and only one shower for all those rooms, so we found ourselves waiting for the bathroom and toilet on more than one occasion. Plus one of the guests kept leaving all her stuff in the bathroom as if it was her permanent home, which was annoying but no fault of the hostel. There is a kitchen with a kettle, microwave, and fridge, as well as complimentary tea and coffee, which is quite nice.
The room itself was quite large and comfortable. The downsides were the see through curtains, which meant that there was constant sunlight and that we didn't have much privacy come night-time. And the blanket was pretty small and barely covered us; since it was pretty cold at night(40 degrees F), that wasn't too fun. However, the room, bathrooms, and kitchen were quite clean. The wifi worked well, and the front desk service was very friendly.
