I recently stayed in the Hostel Famil in the Kociewien capital city of Starogard Gdański. Hostel Famil opened in 2017 and is the first hostel in the city, and as of 2018 it’s the only hostel. It’s a beautiful city ranked with Włocławek and Zamość as one of three Polish lesser known cities you need to backpack in.

I had been here before in perky Starogard Gdański. This time, i was visiting the city again to support my Polish football team of choice, Klub Piłkarski Starogard Gdański. Surprisingly they made it into the last 32 of the Polish Cup this season. A huge achievement from such a small club, although in fairness I did visit Nieciecza in 2017 and witnessed how a village of 750 people had a team in the Polish top flight!! In fact, Klub Piłkarski Starogard Gdański should be a big fish. Football aside, I was here as a backpacker and loved the Hostel Famil.

1.Great location
Situated just a few minutes walk from the main old town square (Stary Rynek), Hostel Famil is central to all the main sights. I covered the sights of the city before as well as reviewing the bars, cafes and restaurants. The main square, the top 3 churches and the football stadium (famous for its Kazik Deyna statue) are all within walking distance.

3.Cosy Rooms
I was in room 8. One day I mean to compile a list of every bed, room number, Hostel or hotel I slept in. I was on the 3rd floor in a room with a kitchenette. The room itself was excellent.
