ATTACKED IN NIGHT

by written on January 22, 2012

DO NOT STAY HERE IT IS UNSAFE!!!!!A group of 4 of us stayed a few nights ago at the Baltic Hostel it was the stuff of nightmares. When asleep a man broke down our glass door and had to be dragged off me by the police. Blood was everywhere and my phone got trodden on. But all the hostel has to say was they arent responsible for peoples actions. But how can someone be able to repeatedly ram a door and break the glass a room which was opposite a reception we were told was manned 24 hours a day. We are all very shaken and upset we did not get any money for compensation and were told it was a hostel for the lower end of society not travellers. WORST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE. Apart from this hostel Gdansk itself was lovely and I would well recommend it but staying in another hotel more in the city centre!!!!

Directions: Near Old Town

We spent 3 nights in the hostel, over new years '08-'09, and had a pretty good time. Our choices were quite limited before we went, this was one of only 3 hostels that had any accommodation available - but at the end of the day, myself and Asia had an 8-bed dorm all to ourselves, for our entire stay.
The service wasn't bad, though some would say it's slightly unprofessional... But it IS only a hostel, not the Ritz. Breakfast consisted of eggs, pate, jams, and bread.
The hostel is, literally, only 5 minutes from the station, and about 15 minutes from the old town.

Unique Quality: Well, i wouldn't really say there's much unique about the place, but there's a very nice atmosphere, and everyone meeting together in the common room results in a great time being had by all.

Directions: When leaving the train station, head left toward the bridge. Take the 3rd set of stairs on the bridge, and the hostel is the nearest door to the base of the stairs.

Very Zen

Since I visited Gdansk in winter, the place was quite quiet. I was the longest staying guest of the week (that was partly due to the fact that I couldn't get a ticket back to London asap!).

The decor in the living room is kind of Zen-like with little Buddha statues around (mixed with pictures of the Sacred Heart & Jasna Gora on a wall-corner), a skoe-pouting water feature and low lighting.

Unique Quality: You get free internet access and the place is kept quite clean as the manager of the day will clean it every day. Linen and breakfast are provided.

Directions: Just a three minute walk from the bus/train station. There are markings on the road which reads "Hostel =>" from the bus station!
