  • Comment from Buddy, who visited Warsaw in October 2004: Just read the comment on gaysauna Galla. I am also an asian looking guy but live in amsterdam. When I walk through the streets of warsaw people are really looking at me like an alien, no asians nor blacks to see anywhere. Strange but also special I think. For colored people: be prepared! Now back to the sauna. I really had a good time in Fantom, Its very hard to find but keep searching and you will find the door where you have to ring. You enter the sauna but there is also a darkroom labyrinth and shop connected to the sauna but that area has an own entrance that I did not find. I was surprised to find a sauna and asked for the sexshop. The staff spoke a bit of english and were very friendly to me. They brought me to the sexshop which was crap (ok, I\'m spoiled and from amsterdam), I had a look around and than drank something at the bar. Cruised around abit , but the boys there were very pushy and I did not feel very comfortable. The average age of the guys there was pretty young between 18 and 30. I decided to check out the sauna and asked how much it costs. They said 25 slotty normal price (which is about 6 euro or 7 dollars), 15 if you already payed at the sexshop for a visit to the darkroom. I did not pay for this darkroom so again I must say these people were really friendly! They let me in for free. So the man of the sexshop brought me to the sauna where I had a good time! The men were much more atractive here. Probably because the entree is higher. A mix of young and old and everything in between. No blacks, asians or colored people. Just polish but that was also what I came for :-P The sauna it self is not vey special, small and not to clean. Bring your own slippers! They provide slippers there but they are old and not to clean aswell. Cabins are allright and the sauna and steamroom are not to bad. It is not a very high class sauna but its also in a county which still has to develope it self... I liked it. greets.
  • Steve, wrote in June 2005: 'The sauna is smallish, but the dark rooms are interesting, with windows between cabins. There is also a cage for interaction with the guys from the bar. The bar also has a nice dark area, only one booth has a mirror. Open late, which is good, but be careful, can get a little rough.'
  • Rolf wrote in November 2005: 'During my recent stay in Warsaw I visited the Fantom Sauna 3 times and was pleasent suprised of how polite and nice everybody was. It is very hard to find the club but dont give up. Itīs worth the trouble.'
  • Olivier wrote in June 2006: 'I want to thank the team of Fantom for their help & their kindness. I had a good time there, in both places, Club and Sauna, although the Polish guys are very shy ;-). I must say, it would be hard for me also to have sex with a boy, if I was wearing like most Polish men, a neckless with Jesus hanging on a crucifix (and of course, with the souvenir of Jean Paul II, who wasn't precisely a gay lover). Anayway, it was a good experience. Thnx a lot.'
  • Martin wrote in April 2008:'Very horny place. Sauna is definately for one purpose, lots of hot action going on. Many different types of guys, most are Polish, in their 20s and 30s. There is a passage to the Fantom Club for free if you get too hot in the sauna.'

  • Comment sent by Andrew Lee (August 2004): I would like to make a complaint about this gay sauna Galla at ulica Ptasia 2, Warsaw. I visited Warsaw this weekend for holiday from the UK, where I live. I am Asian in origin and as soon as I entered this sauna, at about 6pm, 28/8/04, the man on the desk looked at my face and said in a poorly spoken English, 'no locker, we are busy.' So I left but just as I was stepping out of the door a white man entered and he was given a key and towel right away to go to the sauna. This man (and the management of this sauna) is clearly a racist and does not want foreigner/tourist to visit his sauna. Please could you remove their business from your guide as what they do is disgraceful to their country and a complete waste of our time to visit them if they don't want to do business with tourists.
  • Reply from Dominik, who lives in Warsaw: It's not a racism thing. They are busy, and sometimes you need to have a locker reservation before you go there. It happened also to me.
  • Comment from Ivan, who visited Warsaw in November 2004: Don't go, Don't waste your time. They do refuse entrance of foreigners with unfriedly 'sorry, no locker available'.
  • Comment from Dellas, who visited Warsaw in December 2004: I went yesterday. Bit difficult to find on corner next to a shop selling sunglasses. Across the road is a big apartment block. The entrance has a small grey marble plaque on it. I nearly gave up i nearly missed it. Hope the above makes it easier for you all. I got the tram from Centrum. Normally you get the metro to Ratusz but it was not working yesterday. It was a clean and pleasant place so I was surprised by the other comment. Maybe it has changed hands or something. Mixed crowd some nice young guys. Bear in mind it was Saturday night dont know what other days are like. Fantom is still the best though but it made a nice change. Worth a visit.
  • Comment from Jimmy Wang, who visited Warsaw in March 2005:I am Chinese and I had a great time. Not only they let me in, both the staff and patrons welcomed me with a smile. Since prices are very inexpensive, I went for the full package of 1hr massage, couple drinks, slippers, and the use of the Sauna. I was well fed and I even took a guy back to hotel for more action. The total came out to be 74 Zolty. It was so cool. They are not racist at all. Andrew, you just have to be a little patience and they kept the men at the doors waiting for their locker. Learn your patience like a typical Thai person, you will be welcomed everywhere.
  • Comment from Rob, who wrote in October 2005:Great place, claean and friendly. I liked the orgy room upstairs with comfortable matraces. Free internet is convenient too. Nice younger crowd, few trolls. I was there in July and as a good by gift I was given a free ticket for the next visit. I used it next day and I was not disappointed. Highly reccomendable spot.
  • Comment from David, who wrote in November 2005:Visited 4-6 pm on a Friday and predominantly older guys although managed to find a guy to play with. Took the massage and have to say satisfied with that and for the price has to be a bargain but Gym? Cabins? Bar? Stretching the truth a little. Facilities leave a great deal to be desired.
  • Comment from Ninno, who wrote in January 2006:I am not a polish citizen and I had never a problem to go in. It is true sometime it is very busy and you need to wait or come back later. Friday, Saturday and Sunday are full. Go early, before 16.00.
  • Comment from Maayan, who wrote in May 2008:'We spent a couple of nights in Warsaw so checked out two saunas. One was Klub Sauna Galla. We found the location easily thanks to the directions given in the review below. This sauna is quite small. The entry level is just the check-in desk. You get a locker key and a towel. Pay 20 PLN when you leave. Upstairs there's a small seating area with porn on a TV. Everything else is downstairs: showers, restrooms, dark room, steam room, dry sauna, a couple of lounges. We didn't find any cabins, so there appeared to be nowhere to have sex in privacy. Although there were quite a few good looking young guys there, the sexual temperature was quite low. No one seemed to do anything except chat and chain-smoke. Cigarette smoke is everywhere, not just at this sauna. The floor was wet and slippery throughout the space. We don't think we will return to Galla. Another sauna in Warsaw - Fantom - is larger, nicer and has a lot of sex going on.'
  • Comment from David, who wrote in October 2008:'Sauna Galla is a dirty place, dark and unfriendly. I spent 30 min trying to make sure I do not touch anything and unfortunately anybody. It is below any hygienic standards and I am amazed people spend any time there at all. For me it was first and last time.'
