Brief historic flashback
In the 19th century it was decided to build the Warsaw Railway Station at 118 Obvodny Canal Embankment. The first building of the Warsaw station was completed in 1851-1853. The first section of the new railway was opened on November 13th, 1853. The long-distance line connected Petersburg with Gatchina. The railway station was getting bigger and better with each passing year until World War II broke out. During the war the station was partially destroyed. In the post-war time the building was restored and two adjacent squares were nicely arranged.
In 2001, the station building housed the Rail Transport Museum and in 2003-2006 the building underwent another reconstruction as designed by Giovanni Bartoli. Warsaw Express mall was opened here.
Following the opening of the mall, Waiting Room nightclub was started in the former Warsaw Railway Station, thus preserving the continuity of style and names.
It didn't take us long to come up with the name for our hostel –SV Hostel. SV means a first-class sleeping coach and we offer comparable comforts. Therefore our logo and a peculiar design of our website.
