We got to krakow at 12pm all very tired and when we got to the appena we thought looks clean and ok for a base. 2 hours after being there and realised the trains run all night long about every six minutes and wagons do all the deliveries at night we realised we was going to get no sleep. In...

I can confirm that this hostel is very conveniently located, clean and with all services. However you book a sleeping room because you normally wish to sleep and you will not have the possibility to do it at Appena. Rooms are located on the ground/first floor facing a very noisy street and are not isolated, so you can not only...

A nice short walk from the centre of Kraków, very clean, well kept with a polite host who will give you a map and directions. A very good price per night and wifi available. We would definitely stay again at the Hostel as Kraków is beautiful historical city and we recommend going to watch an orchestra at one of the...

One for this issue and another for something to do with a problem in the bathroom. ..no idea what this was about. I...

Stayed here for two nights. Booked a room here because it was central, near the old town, and the Galleria, and still cheaply priced. Also easy to find parking close to the hostel. Difficult to see from the booking pages, what you can expect of bathroom facilities. We got a room with a shower, but without a toilet.

We were made to feel very welcome when we arrived. Free to come and go as we pleased. Free tea and coffee and a great little table to eat our breakfast. Fridge Freezer too. Lovely little kitchen with microwave and hob. Little fridge in our room with mini bar if it took your fancy. Everything was spotlessly clean and cosy....

first, it is not clear from the booking info if the bathroom is private or not (indeed it is not) ... the management of the hostel is completely inadequate, in a small common space the manager does everything from eating, watching TV, sleeping...in / out control is absent and, finally, at the check out the manager was not present and,...

My friends and I rent a small separate apartment belonging to the Hostel. The guy at the reception was very friendly and helpful. The apartment was new, tiny and quite. Cleanliness was not excellent, but for the price, the location I could accept it. One suggestion is to bring your ow towel as teh one they supply are old.

Close to the old town, close to the galleria shopping centre, close to the train station * pretty clean * the heater worked well The cons: * the 2 bedroom is not 2 bedrooms, it is...
