Reviewed 13 December 2011

We stayed there for 1 night in a group of 10ppl, the ladies at the reception very really kind, the rooms werent as awesome as those on the website but it was still okay. Its quite close to the center and 300 metres from the railway station so location is great. Just the wifi on the 4th floor really sucked and an elevator could be useful. But we paid 28PLN each (~6,5euro) so for this price it was quite awesome.

near to the railway station but about a 20 min walk to the main square (not 10 mins as on their website!).

Handy for local shops (24hr ones nearby).

Rooms not as funky as they appear on website, One toilet per whole landing is pretty dire,shower had no hanging facilitiy as if was smashed. Nothing to dry your hands with. Dubious stains on carpeted floors in private rooms. Smokey corridors, no lift so stairs everywhere.

I wouldn't go back, but would be ok if you were on a very tight budget.

Room Tip: Don't take the blue room, its right on the bottom, smells a bit damp, right at across from the f...

We arrived on our floor the 3rd and we could not breathe as we had already passed several smaller groups 0f smokers at 3 locations , a total of 30 or more mostly under aged young girls who were obviously using the freedom away from mum and dad to catch up on their smoking experience.At the reception I had just signed a document the First line of which stated that I would not smoke in the Hostel!!! A joke we are both non smokers.
Our room was the Green room and we were greeted by the overwhelming stench of Fresh Paint fumes. I tried to open one of the windows and failed I discovered on close examination that they were all screwed shut . 2 hours later after pestering the receptionist he finally located a screwdriver and managed to open one of the windows for us which after this we were unable to close again. Later I had to queue for the toilet there were 2 on the floor one of which had a shower located in it and the shower was in constant use so effectively our floor had 1 toilet to 60 or 70 people and during the wait I was forced to breathe in used tobacco smoke. When I gained access to the toilet It was filled with smoke as they smoke there as well . Best bring your own toilet paper too. and if you are travelling with young children their potty too!!
They advertise and told us before we booked that there is a kitchen Thats great if you are on the ground floor and if you bring your own cups, crockery and utensils.There is a shared fridge and if you want to risk having your food disappear in the night you can use it. We were even encouraged to use it by several youngsters but we are not green like our room was
Finally we tried to get to sleep on the beds and they were most uncomfortable we have come across look nice but not comfy.
Our advice to anyone reading this who is even slightly troubled by the stench of tobacco smoke is DO NOT USE THIS HOSTEL as we would never ever use this place again we would rather sit on a bench at the station than enter this place again.
Do not be fooled by the flashy website because that is an illusion the reality is Shocking

We just arrived back from staying at The Avantarde Hostel for 5 nights. We were are small group of 4 25 year old males from Manchester, England. We stayed in a 4 bunk bed dorm which was very clean and a good size. The room was immaculate and was fresh. The beds were comfortable. The only problem was there wasnt even wardrobe space but we didnt care as we hanged our clothes up on the rails of our bunk beds. he room was nice and warm. The shared bathrooms were constantly clean and stocked up with soap andd toilet room. We payed £6.50 each a night for the dorm. This made us a bit worried as to what it would be like as this is an excellant cheap price. The hotel exceeded our expectations and was very safe. The walk was around 10 - 15 mins to the Rynek but a taxi would cost 10 Zlotys (£2).

Overall the hostel is excellant value and we woudl stay there again. Any qustons please dont hesitate to contact me.

Phil
