We stayed here on Friday and Saturday nights and that was a big mistake. There is a restaurant and a Karaoke bar above your room, so when they start singing at nine o´clock in the evening, it is impossible to sleep. If you are in Krakow just for party, then the place is great for you, because it is very...

Totally surprised that this didn't happen to other travellers, but I am totally infuriated with my stay at this place. When booking this place, the idea of staying at a boat sounded perfect. I never go to hostels because I have a week sleep and hate people waking me up. For that reason, I chose one of their single bedrooms....

In late September I stayed in Barca Basia. The cost for three nights was £44 so this is dirt cheap accommodation. The boat is very simple, you have a locked room with a bed. It was clean and simple. There is one communal washing area with a sink two showers and two loos. The area is not gender specific so...

Well. It's a hoStel... with spider webs on the windows and shower drains that don't work very well. If you are in the shower and there's another person in the next shower, you will end up ankle deep in your and your neighbor's shower muck as the drain is not too quick at draining the water. The room seemed reasonably...

It's like a camping car more or less. The room was very small but it was really perfect- cheap, with bathroom (shared one of course), showers, warm water. It was clean, so what you expect more? It's perfect if you don't stay a long time.. Very close to Kazimierz!

My partner stayed here for 3 nights in November 2012. It was VERY basic but extremely cheap. It is a Barge on the River Vistula and located 5 mins walk from the tram-stop which takes you to the old town in 5-10mins. The room is very small but is OK if you don't plan on spending much time in your...

Nice place on the water, really easy to find your place when your are lost "just follow the river'. I like the outside patio and it's easy to find the Caste just by following the rivers pathway. All in all, it was real nice,,, a Big Thankyou...:)

We arrived here after a very early morning flight and took a nap straight away on the not amazingly comfortable beds. In the particular room that we had been placed in there were brown smears all over the walls and windows where spiders had been squashed..after a quick wipe with some baby wipes these were gone - a job which...
