By The Way Hostel Poznan Reviews
affordable place in great location! May 13, 2012
Location: hostel is located on one of the most popular streets in Poznan. it's around 8-10 minutes walk from the Old Market. shops (one, open 24/7, is located in front of the hostel), bars, restaurants, tram and bus stops, cashpoints, book and gift stores, huge shopping centre, tourist attractions - everything is in your reach.
Rooms: clean, not too big and not too small, linen included in price. as far as i remember, the hostel can host around 35 guests at once. they have rooms for 10, 6 and smaller ones. there are lockers in the rooms (you have to pay small, refundable fee for the key, though), three bathrooms (two small and one big - but the showers in the bigger one don't have locks! that's a pity), common room, kitchen and a reception open 24/7.
Staff: very nice, friendly and smiling people. ready to help at any time, give directions and just talk if you want. you can get a simple map of Poznan at the desk, and check-out other guides if needed. there are no key-cards or anything, so you have to call to get in.
Food: you get a small breakfast - a sandwich and cereal. also coffee, milk and tea available 24/7. if you have big appetite it probably won't be enough.
Other: the hostel is a bit noisy, but i guess it was because of the people. staff should pain attention to what happens inside and react if guests are too loud. also, the beds are bit squeaky, so if you move, everyone can hear it. but in general, the rooms are quiet, despite of the location, which is amazing and nice.
Overall: i recommend! good balance between quality/price and AMAZING location.
