we got to Krakow from Czech a little after midnight but the hostel staff were still friendly and welcoming. we quickly settled into our various rooms and retired to bed the next day breakfast was ready long before we even woke up to freshen up! simple place yet with a lot of character.

In this busy hostel, you can expect kind staff, abundant buffet-style breakfast, as well as poor ventilation in the bathroom and fridges for guests overloaded with leftover food. Consider that the interiors are consistently dark-grey and white. There is a groceries store opposite, and an excellent Italian restaurant nearby. There are some walking areas very close, but for the centre,...

Not very clean, strange smell in the room, very dark (even walls painted in black). Staff was friendly, but nothing else. Anyway this was the cheapest place we managed o find, but next time i would chose something else.

The rooms are really tiny and not maintained very well. We had a twin room and got a tiny room with a bunk bed and an attached toilet. There was practically no place to put your feet with the bags next to the bed. The room did not have hooks to hang clothes or a mirror. The electric sockets were...

It's a friendly staff, rooms are good enough for the low cost and it's a fair chance to meet up with backpackers here. I would stay in the hostel again, if I ever come to Krakow again! The breakfast was simple, but again - it was included in an already cheap price. Free wi-fi also gave us the opportunity to...

Stayed here a while ago now. Very friendly and helpful staff. Good value for money. On a frequent direct bus route to the airport and the city centre - No. 292. Kitchen facilities and free tea and coffee available all day, plus fast free wifi. Some walls a little on the thin side, but overall, very quiet after 11.00pm.

Great breakfast, great staff. I had the pleasure of meeting Justyna and Monika. Both were a credit to the hostel. Wifi was decent and the garden grounds were most pleasant. This hostel provides free laundry too which doesn't happen often which adds to the reason for coming here. Would stay again.

Staff was very friendly. Beds were clean. 4 person room was very small, no space for bags. Bathroom was tiny and simple and a bit old. For breakfast they provided homemade and nontraditional food. Quick bus connection to the city center, bakery just around the corner.

“Avoid the bunk bed private room.”

“We stayed in the deluxe double and were located at the top. There are plenty of pictures on the internet of this room. It feels nice as it is the last room and little away from everyone else. They have really made an effort to make the room feel modern and comfortable. There is plenty of hanging space in the wardrobe and the view faces to the front so if going on a trip you can watch for the mini bus arriving.”
