While it may not be the most pronunciation-friendly place, Hostel Przy Targu Rybnym ("The Hostel by the Fish Market") is an ideal base for exploring Gdansk on the cheap. The hostel offers shared and private rooms starting at 50 zloty, leaving you plenty of cash to spend on the rest of your holiday. Though with its picturesque location right on the Motlawa River, you might not want to leave the hostel at all, but their friendly English-speaking staff can point you in the right direction when you do. Free breakfast, coffee or tea, and Internet access are included.

I hate to say this but; this is the worst hostel i have stayed at. It seems like it would have been a nice cosy place about five years ago but they have cut corners and simply haven't kept up with the times and it shows. The cheap cleaning products leave the rooms smelling like bourbon (and not in a good way - it leaves you searching for windows to open but they don't exist so you end up with your head spinning because of the chemicals in such a confined space), there are numerous holes in the walls, the walls are paper thin and let in all of the heat and street noise, there was one small window in my eleven bed dorm (which was not nearly enough to prevent it from becoming very stuffy, hot and smelly), the showers didn't seem like they'd been cleaned in weeks (once again; holes in the walls, moldy bath matt's and no fans), there was no wi-fi and only one computer for everyone to use (possibly purchased in the 90's). The computer was so slow and tedious that all i could manage to do with it was book accommodation somewhere else and leave. Despite all of those negative points; the location is amazing, the rooms are cheap (although they should be cheaper given what you're subject to) and the girl at reception when we checked in was exceptionally nice (all of the other staff seemed distant and uninterested). Once again, i'd like to point out that it seems like it was a great place a couple of years ago. Maybe a little renovating could see it return to something more welcoming.
