We assure you that you’ve come to the right place! We opened Kanonia Hostel in 2004 and it became  a unique place on the map of Warsaw, wrapped in an artistic atmosphere. It is a charming hostel with soul and character, located in the heart of Warsaw’s  Old Town, enhanced by extraordinary decor and colorful interiors. It is also the only hostel in the Warsaw’s Old Town, where history is intertwined with modernity.

Unique spot on Warsaw’s Map

From our rooms we offer a magnificent view of Kanonia Square with its historic bell, narrowest house in Europe and Jezuicka street with its backyard of St. Jan Cathedral.

Kanonia Square not by accident became the inspiration for the name of our hostel not only because of its adjacent location. We did not want to be associated exclusively as a hostel in the Old Town, in addition we would like to draw attention to the charm of the less popular corners of the capital. Not every Warsaw’s hostel has its name derived from such a unique place with a unique history. In 1406 Canonry of the Warsaw Chapter received a plot in this place and they built narrow but high wooden houses. When the fire broke out in 1607, the houses have been rebuilt using bricks. For some time, three houses purchased by a priest Stanisław Staszic served as the first headquarters for the Friends of Science Society. Residents of these houses were also Archbishop of Warsaw – Jan Paweł Woronicz and author of poems and legends of Warsaw – Arthur Oppman known under the pseudonym Or-Ot. Kanonia along with the entire old town was destroyed in 1944. After the reconstruction they created this extremely narrow house.

We offer our guests rooms of different standards. We have both private rooms with bathrooms and without as well as dormitories with access to the bathrooms in the hallways. In our offer you can also find apartments for rent. Exceptional accommodation in Warsaw only with us. Kanonia Hostel & Apartments, Warsaw, ul. Jezuicka 2 – Welcome !

 

Peace and contentment in a living and vibrant capital

The location of our hostel makes it an ideal place for a romantic weekend just for two, business stay, an unforgettable outing with friends or a successful holiday with all the family.

Hostel Kanonia is located only 200 from the Royal Castle, 50m from the charming Old Town Square. Besides the historic sights worth seeing, in the close neighborhood of our hostel there are a lot of restaurants and atmospheric pubs serving regional delicacies and favorite polish and international dishes. The closeness of the major tourist attractions of Warsaw makes your stay with us impossible to be bored.

During the day the bustling capital draws you into the variety of attractions. At night somewhat calmed and muted, provides a sweet, quiet sleep. Although our hostel is located in the center of Warsaw, it inspires with unconventional, sophisticated taste, artistic energy, good atmosphere and … human kindness. The biggest advantage of our location is also excellent access to all the interesting areas of the capital.
