Lonely Planet review
Another of Warsaw’s quality hostels, Helvetia has spick-and-span rooms painted in warm, bright colours with wooden floors and a good amount of space. Bicycles and scooters are available for rent, laundry and kitchen facilities are in top order, and with a limited number of beds, it’s best to book ahead in summer.
Our independent authors have visited Hostel Helvetia and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Warsaw.

The front desk staff is at your disposal 24 hours a day. They are all students speaking Polish, English, Russian, Ukrainian and a little bit of German. They are ready to help you to guide you to great places in Warsaw, to show where you can eat the tastiest 'pierogi' ever, to share their knowledge and passion of Warsaw. They are young and all in love with the busy life of our city.
