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 only 38 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.
