It is the perfect place to relax after a busy day of sightseeing & is always open from 7:00 – 00.00 with a self-turn-on system and guidelines for our guests.

And of course, it is free and included in the room rate.

Reviews

Very nice place to stay in beautiful area

Very nice room, beautiful common areas, a free sauna, and the historical background of the place make the stay an excellent experience. The toilets and the showers are very nice and clean and there is also a nice big common kitchen and dining room.
There is also a big plus for Polish tourists – the staff is Polish 🙂

Highlight of our trip!

We loved the location. I absolutely love this hostel and adore its simplicity. Well-equipped kitchen, every detail taught. Overlooking the water with a beautiful eating area. Simple beds but very comfortable and clean! I love the easy check-in. Our names were on the list with the room number. I wish we could stay over for more days. Thank you for creating wonderful memories. Highly recommended!

Wish we could stay longer

Following the Walter Mitty road, you arrive at the cutest, coziest hostel. Great kitchen, very well organized, 3 stoves, suitable for many cooks…
Savna is great after all day’s drive. Walking through the little town is very picturesque… Liked also the blueberries growing in the neighborhood…
