The hostel is very close to the Barbikan, old town and train station is less than 10 minutes on foot. The sign board is quite difficult to find for first timer and the entrance looks a bit scary as well. But once you step into the hostel, it is a very nice place to be in. The hostel is very...

The Globart Hostel wasn't the easiest to find, we managed to walk past it twice, so keep a look out if you're trying to find it. It's about a 5 minute walk from the main Krakow Glowny train station and ideally situated for the city centre. The hostel is quite high up off the ground floor, has quite a modern...

My wife and I stayed here recently for one night and found it to be a poor experience. Ok, we knew that it was student inter-rail season.. so a certain level of noise was to be expected. However, it wasn't the sounds of party revellers that kept us awake all night. Our bedroom was situated between the common kitchen area...

The next day we were broken out in bites on our entire bodies...they kept surfacing for a week....

We're sorry that something like this happened to you in our hostel. Immediately after your check out we called professional team that has disinfectioned room and all the things in the room. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to detect bugs and usually you notice them when there are many of them and they are big. Bed bugs like wood and...

Hostel Globart looks a bit rough on the outside, but it is great on the inside. Clean, lovely breakfast, helpful staff, great location - only complaint is that it can be noisy and they need to keep other guests under control more to stop spoiling it for others.

A very clean comfortable and spacious hostel. Excellent staff who helped me out with a bike problem. Be careful with safety though. I had some bits stolen from my bike’s saddle bag.

A nice and friendly place in Kraków, with good localization and well communicated with the rest od the city. Staff is very polite and helpful, rooms are clean, breakfast is ok. It's a nice place for backpackers who want to stay in the city for a good value.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to GlobArt Hostel!Looking for a safe, elegant and perfectly situated hostel at a budget price? Then GlobArt Hostel is definitely the best choice! Great location: GlobArt is a brand new hostel located in the very centre of Krakow, just across the street from the city's most vibrant areas and only 5 minute walk from the train/bus station. There are buses and trams going to all parts of Krakow just in front of our door as well as the bike rental, so you can get easily wherever you want! And there's so much more GlobArt Hostel has to offer! Magnificent view: As it is situated on the 5th floor (don't worry, there's a lift) it has a marvelous window view with sight to literally all parts of Krakow. Just imagine drinking your morning coffee in our spacious common room and already admiring the beauty of the city! Extraordinary atmosphere: The old town in a hand reach, Academy of Fine Arts around the corner and a traditional food market on the other side build up the unique atmosphere of the place. You will have the opportunity to meet lots of interesting people and get to know more about Krakow and its culture then you might learn from tourist brochures. Our multilingual staff is always there to help and give information. Supreme comfort: And if you get tired of sightseeing, and visiting museum and/or bars you can relax in a green area next to our hostel or go shopping in one of the biggest shopping centres in Poland that is situated only 3 minute walk from our hostel. In GlobArt Hostel we thought about everything to make your stay in Krakow as pleasant and fun as possible. ... more   less
