Hostel Zappio is a fun, youthful hostel located right in the very heart of old town Gdansk, a minute’s walk from the Motlawa River. The Location The atmosphere of this upbeat hostel complements its location -- a lively, if noisy, laid back hostel which is ideal for the budget backpacker looking for a party (this hostel is not for those seeking a peaceful, quiet stay, and the walls are very thin). The location is excellent, nestled within the vicinity of a host of Gdansk’s famous bars, restaurants, and cafes. The train station is a mere ten minutes' walk away, as are all the major bus routes including the airport bus. Rooms and Bathrooms The rooms are clean, bright, and modern. Dorms have six, twelve, or fourteen beds, but there are also private rooms available (with and without ensuite). The rooms are a little sparse -- our room specifically didn't have a table and chairs although other rooms have slightly more furniture. Plenty of hooks, a reading lamp, and a bookshelf are the main (read: only) features out with the four beds in the private room we stayed in. The doors lock by mortise lock, but there are no lockers within the rooms themselves. The bathrooms are large, one on each floor, with both bath and shower facilities. The bathroom area has plenty of space for changing but the lack of hooks on the doors for hanging clothes makes it challenging to keep clothes dry. There is a wicker shelving unit for toiletries. Common Spaces The main social centre revolves around the busy smoking room, equipped with a large widescreen TV and table football -- which, for a non-smoker, is a bit on the smelly side. However, this opens out onto a pleasant garden with table and chairs, which, in summer would likely have been the ideal place to meet with friends. There is also a non-smoking common room with TV and DVD player, but this was largely lacking other guests during our stay. There is a large, well equipped, bright kitchen with a long table for food prep. The hostel also features a reasonably priced, small bar area at reception serving draft and can beers. The hostel also boasts a luggage room, laundry service, free tea and coffee, and ironing board and hairdryer. There is Wi-Fi in the rooms and common areas as well as a computer with internet access at the end of one of the long corridors. The hostel also has games and a shisha pipe to rent, as well as a small shop. Summary Overall, this is a friendly, modern party hostel, with helpful staff and a lively atmosphere. It is fully equipped for the needs of the budget backpacker and the prices are very reasonable given its standard. There is no curfew and few rules, and this leads to a rather noisy hostel with loud drunken ramblings until the early hours.

Cosy place right in the heart of the Stare Miasto
Superb location and great to stay in one of the old town merchant houses. Very comfortable, loads of space, nice kitchen, nice baths, friendly helpful staff. I love it. And it's warm, even when it's -10C outside. No breakfast but tea and coffee all the time and use of the kitchen. Two 24-hour shops on ul. Piwna, between the main square and the Mariacka church.
