This was the first of many hostels I stayed in on my trip and one of the best considering the price. Staff were really friendly and helpful and were always happy to answer questions. They all spoke fluent English which was very helpful for us. The rooms were a good size, with individual lockers and plenty of power points. Linen... More

I visited hostel ''Tamka'' couple weeks ago when I was on my business trip in Poland. Very good location in center of Warsaw near old town. Very good and nice service. Simply but very clean rums. Definitely I recommend.

It's never nice to write a poor review, but this one does seem necessary. I had reserved a room for one night for one person. This was confirmed in writing and on the telephone in advance. On the morning of my stay, I was called to say that my reservation had been cancelled. I was offered no explanation and was... More

We stayed here twice, upon arriving in Warsaw and then on our way from Bialowieza to Wrocklaw. Hostel Tamka is close to Old Town and major bus/tram lines, so the location is great. There was a lot of street noise outside our first dorm on the 1st floor, the lockers were tiny, and there were only 2 bathrooms for the... More

...What killed it for me is lack of cleanliness. The place has fairly new appliances so it photographs well. But a dorm of 8 backpackers can trash a place in minutes - so imagine how bad it is when obviously no one has cleaned the shower and toilet areas in a very long time. Sure the kitchen is clean but...

I decided to visit Poland and this was where I stayed. I arrived at 2am and was greeted by the receptionist who spoke good English. The bed was ok although it did need repairing underneath. The cleanliness was good and the hostel had cleaners come in every morning. It also has a communual area and kitchen which were adequate for... More

Very good location, easy to get to from airport by bus and walkable from central station. Close to supermarkets, shops, the old town, everything really. The hostel is basic, the staff are nice but it's not a place to go of you like hostels which organise nights out/events etc. Rooms are ok but you can escape the noise of the... More

To be honest rooms and service are OK, but if you want to simply book a night in here and just don't worry about your trip anymore, this is the wrong place and you should stay away from it. I've been here once and I was lucky then, because their booking software had crashed so my reservation was invalid, but... More

Good location, very cheap, few steps away from nice coffee shops and etc. Would recommend the place for budget travelers. However the beds are not the best, old bed-sheets, but for the price it's ok. I had no idea there was also breakfast at the hostel, although I stayed there 3 days. That's a good thing. The city itself is... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
There's no doubt that the Tatamka hostel stands out above other accommodation in Warsaw. One of the biggest advantages is its superb location - the building is just around the corner from the most popular streets in the city, Nowy Swiat and Krakowskie Przedmiescie, and a short 15 minute walk from the Old Town. What does this mean? Put simply, you are within staggering distance of countless clubs, bars, pubs and restaurants.Other attractions of the capital city are also nearby: the business centre, shopping malls and numerous monuments - the Royal Baths included! With all these attractions around, you probably won't just be hanging round the hostel. That being said, it's good to know what this place has to offer: private rooms for 1, 2, 3 or 4 people (with or without bathrooms) as well as single places in bigger rooms: for 6, 8 and 10 people. We take care that the type of room and furnishings of the hostel suit each visitor - although the classical backpacker is well catered for because hostels are made primarily for them. That's why you'll find, amongst other things:- A common room with DVD player - an ideal place to relax and have a chat,- Free internet access (as well as wireless internet connection),- A fully-equipped kitchen,- Free coffee and tea,- Barbeque facilities.Because of the varied standards of our rooms and the many services provided on the hostel premises, our satisfied guests are also varied - foreign tourists visiting Warsaw, businessmen, organized groups and conference participants. Not only backpackers feel at home here! ... more   less
