Welcome to the highest hut in the Polish Tatras (1670m a.s.l.)

We have 67 beds in rooms of 2, 4, 7, 8, and 10. In the centre of the hut lies a big, but very cosy dining area. You can either eat meals served by our kitchen, or use your own provisions. It is also a meeting place and social hub.
Besides the kitchen, a bar sells soft-drinks, beer, and snacks. At a reception desk you can, additionally to confirming the reservation and paying for your stay get souvenirs, maps and guidebooks. All three: the kitchen, the bar, and the reception are open from 08.00 – 21.00 with a break from 10.00 – 11.00.
Just left of the entrance to the hut you will also find the ‘tourists’ kitchen’, an area designated for those who choose to prepare their own meals.
You can rent winter-tourism and ski-touring equipment in the hut.
If you are aiming at acquiring new skills, or perfecting your mountain knowledge, you are sure to find something interesting among the courses prepared by the 5plus Mountain Academy.
If you decide to spend some time indoors, you will find a wide range of books, games and videos for your use.
If on your day-treks you would prefer travel light we can keep your luggage safe.
“Lakes” as we call it, is a beautiful traditional mountain hut situated in the heart of the High Tatras. There are plenty of walking paths to reach it but there is no road access. As the only people that can get there are walkers you will find yourselves amongst like-minded people. It is you and our guests who create the wonderful atmosphere of the place.
The hut, owned by the PTTK (Polish Tourism and Sightseeing Association,) was completed in 1954 as the fifth successive Refuge in the valley, but the first one to be situated by the Przedni Staw (Front Lake)
