“An adventure in itself!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2012

The stay at the hostel is an adventure in itself (kids love it!) - it's about 10 meters away from the train tracks - so it's not a quiet place (even with windows closed) but it is interesting to observe trains right outside your window. There are some trains passing at night and morning traffic starts around 6am. The trains don't go by too often - a few per hour at the most. The hostel is newly done so it's clean and fresh. The lobby has a train station theme to it and it's very pleasant. The outside of the building looks a bit dodgy but it grows on you once you find out the inside is not run-down. The room we had was very basic - just beds (very hard mattresses) and night stands - no tv, no table. The bathroom was clean - no towels though (you can get some at an extra charge). Breakfast buffet quite simple but decent. Wi-fi internet works fine. It's a 15-20 minute walk to the centre of the centre, however the shabby area nearest to the hostel (some 150 meters) is not well lit at night.

Internet yes for free;
Parking yes for free;
Clean yes, looks a bit old in the rooms;
Appearance less acceptable, no TV in room, very hot, when we arrived, towel costs 5 sloty extra each;
Restaurant was not opened, ordered through reception a pizza, but that was good. The salad from the pizza service was not so good;
Breakfast poor, only the most necessary;
Courtesy good;
Price/Performance just acceptable;

Observations:
Since the hotel is in front of the station, it is very loud when a train passes. You can wake up quite often.;
Children get bored here.;
The toilet paper is of a recycling type, that was smelling. Not usual to comment this type of things, but could be interesting for the one or the other.

Room Tip: Try to get the rooms opposite to the train station, maybe there it could be less noisy. This hotel...

First, this is a hostel in premises of a railway station! Situated in a renewed brick warehouse at the staion Torun miasto (Torun-downdown), it might seem a little odd for a family with pre-school kids, but surprisingly it was very good. Some may dislike the access via steep stairs from a street inder a railway bridge and lack of lift inside the hostel, which is rucksack(not suitcase) friendly. The hotel was overall comfortable, friendly and clean. We awaited noise from the cargo traffic, but our room windows were on the quiet side and well sealing (if you are a trainspotter, I think the hotel has some observation rooms on the rail side too). Room door let some corridore noise in. Otherwise the room and its bathroom was really neat, clean. The breakfast was just small. We liked the atmosphere of the entrance, the corridors and the room itself. At entrance you have to beep him using a telephone, the guy appears in a while, so do not panic. The reception staff was very helpful and welcoming. Torun is a truly beautiful city, well accessible from the hotel.
