Tapir Hostel
Ranked #142 of 317 Speciality Lodging in Warsaw
Reviewed 9 May 2013

My friends and I stayed here for two nights and it was great. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The rooms are comfortable, though a little small. There is WiFi throughout the hostel and the connection is good. Because it's such a small hostel, only four rooms from what I gathered, the place feels like someone's home. The bathrooms are very clean and you can use the kitchen at any time. Hairdryers are available upon request. Breakfast is included and is pretty good. The location is great as well as it is walking distance from an ATM, restaurants and the central train station.

A few cons - the windows in the room don't have curtains. Also, the water setting in the shower is a bit off. We figured out that if both showers are being used at the same time then the water tends to fluctuate between warm and cool. Not a big problem though. Also, make sure you ask for the door code before heading out as there is no staff at night.

Overall, a great stay. I liked how relaxed I felt here. I would stay here again!

The first hostel of our trip and we hope the Tapir hasn’t set our expectations too high for other hostels! The Tapir hostel is a small hostel with just 4 rooms, 2 dorm style and 2 double rooms. We opted for a double room which had bunk beds! Neither of us can remember the last time we slept in a bunk bed. The room was basic as you would expect in a hostel but very comfortable and had everything you need. The hostel has two modern bathrooms which are kept in a spotless condition, luckily we never had a problem but with only 2 bathrooms for 12 people we are sure at times there could be a long wait! Included in the price is a hearty breakfast, not cooked but filling nevertheless. The hostel has a very fast internet connection which works in the room. One thing we would change would be the lack of curtains. You have to wake up when the sun does and people in the next building can easy see your every move. We ended up using a towel as makeshift curtain! Also the walls are a bit thin so you can’t miss the young’ens coming in after a night on the Vodka. The staff were extremely knowledgeable and couldn’t do enough for us during our stay and with a great location just a 5-10 min walk from the main train station we would recommend to other travellers.

Good hostel if you will just use it to sleep. The price is very good. Breakfast is included, it is basic but hey, for this price you can't expect "grand luxe". It is close to central station, so that makes it easy to come by train from Chopin airport.
