Stayed at this hostel for a few nights and really really enjoyed it. The hostel is warm, comfortable, clean and has everything you need from a hostel. The location is absolutely breathtaking, especially from the top floor common room window, the view of the Main Square, is one of the best you will get! The staff are fantastic, Monica and...

Truly surpassed all expectation! With the hostel being relatively cheap and situated on the square, it's safe to to say I was rather skeptical as to what would be the catch... I'm delighted to say no 'catch' existed and instead found the hostel very comfortable indeed! On one of the nights, as a group we decided to have a few...

Visited Krakow with a group of friends, so we book ahead the beds and it was cheaper. Clean friendly and quite. The breakfast was great with a lot of options. Good price/quality option in a very well located hostel in the City centre. There was two bathrooms for my floor that were very clean and had everything in good condition....

The reception is open 24/7 and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Location can´t be any better and room with 6 beds are facing the main square with great views. Breakfast is very complete, one of the best i´ve ever had in a hostel.

Perfect place for a few days. Bedrooms were clean with lockers, staff were very helpful and there was a kitchen available for hot drinks. Great place to stay around New Year´s! It´s also located in the main square which makes things really handy

So this hostel is in a great location. The rooms are great, the breakfast is great, and it's just really enjoyable to stay here. The only thing I did not like about this hostel was the bad wifi connection. We had a lot of people in our group so many people were using it at once. I would just suggest...

Let me start with the positives: the staff was very friendly and helpful, the bathrooms were clean, and MOST of the guests were lovely. Unfortunately, my experience there was ruined by a large group of very loud, very drunk men who returned every night at 5 AM and shouted and sang in the hallways until 7 AM. The staff apparently...

Located in the center of old town; this hostel could not have a better location. The double room was clean and had lots of space. The lounges and kitchen areas were really nice. There was a big school group on our floor while we were staying. They occupied the lounge in the evening so we never met other backpackers. That...

I stayed here recently for a few days with some friends. The stairs going up are a bit heavy going but you get used to them. I shared a twin room and others were in a 6 bed mixed dorm. My room was very basic but clean and comfortable, although the pillow and duvet were a bit thin. The toilets/showers...

Really cool place with wooden floors, in the very centre of Krakow. Good atmosphere where it's easy to meet people. We could even bring some friends inside which is a big plus. Highly recommended!! :)
