2/10 Poor

Negativity tension racism

There was a blond guy really rude ..I have been misstreated by him without no sense or reason from the first seconds I came in ...he didn't want listen to me just he wanted speak ..and in really arrogant way told me : " you have to go out as your ceck in is at 2 pm " confusing me ...I said please I am not feeling well can I please stay in the reception welcome room waiting my ceck in at 2 pm? He said : you have to pay if you want stay in to don't get cold ... I went outside it was cold ..and I was already sick I needed to rest ...instead you sent me email my ceck in was at 12 am. Once in at 2 pm ..he started to create on me others problems : you have to go outside to withdraw 10 pound for the keys otherwise he shouted leave the hostel now ...I said ATM will let me withdraw a lots money and I will pay the fee ...please let go sleep I am not feeling well , I won't take the key with me.

4/10 Fair

Wouldn’t stay here again
Cons: The kitchen closes at 10 or 11pm, they don’t even let you get anything out of the fridge after then. The housekeepers threw away my soap and shampoo, I left it in the shared bathroom that was only shared with one other (empty) room. The Wi-Fi dropped every 5 minutes. The hot water didn’t work one day of my 4 day stay. The shower was super rusty. They have super sheer curtains on the windows, had to put up a blanket and a towel to sleep in after 5am. The cost to rent a towel is 5zloty, I could’ve just bought one for that much. Pros: it’s in a good area.

Amazing location with a view of Motlawa river
The stay at La Guitarra was good. I travelled with 2 of my friends and stayed for 5 nights at the hotel in a 4 beds room without attached bathroom. Location is well connected to main attractions. Bathrooms are cleaned regularly. Staff is friendly. Hostel also offers a very good view of the Motlawa river. Our stay was as good as we expected within our budget.

Great location with not bad service
There weren't linen on my bed when I arrived deep in the night and wifi credentials on the check didn't help to connect. Anyway, the overall impression was good, the staff is friendly and helpful and the location is just great.

The bed linens were clean and comfortable. However, being on the bottom bunk of a dormitory I could see some stains on the mattress above me. The breakfast selection is simple but good. The location is a bit of a walk from the central area, but 10-15 minutes is manageable and

Location is great, less than 15 mins leisure stroll next to the river, to the main square area, and to the main bus station. Each bed had a huge locker for use, which was great. Staff was helpful, especially when my delayed luggage was sent to the hostel, the attentive staff (didn't manage to get the name, but really tall male) remembered to keep it because I had mentioned something before leaving in the morning! Really thankful for such attention to details!

2/10 Poor

Beware! Worst management and dangerous premises
O NOT STAY HERE!! When I arrived I was buzzed in, at first the door wouldn’t open and was jammed, and the second time when I tried to open it the door slammed my finger and my finger- I now have a fracture and severe nerve damage that’s going to take months to recover from and possibly require surgery!! The first response I got when I entered crying in pain was “this happens a lot”. They don’t bother to fix it, or even put up a ‘caution’ sign!! This was/ is still a very painful injury and the owner refused to offer any medical assistance and wouldn’t even give me the WiFi info to contact someone!! And my booking was prepaid! This completely ruined my time in Poland and now I can’t write or use my right hand properly for at least a month. The owner is a terrible person. He showed no interest in helping, and acted irritated. When I asked to use the WiFi to contact family and get medical advice, he refused to give me the password until “check in” time which was 20 minutes away! He then left the front desk and refused to speak to me, leaving his employee alone to handle the situation. The employee was nice and more apologetic than the owner, but scared he would get fired if he helped me. What sort of business has these policies?! I’m not sure what local or international tort law is, but this is blatant negligence, and this business should not be in practice! I made the huge mistake of booking in advance and the owner (via phone) would not give the employee a straight answer
