Good location, standard rooms it was just what we needed, however noisy at night as guests aren't quiet. Staff are very helpful and friendly. The toilets are in an awkward place if you are far away there located in reception.

One big downside to our trip was on our second night a group of about 15 school kids on a trip, no older than 14 were allowed to...

The staffs at the hostel are friendly and location is centrally located. Complimentary shots are appreciable. The kitchen is clean and system works punctually. The shower can be maintained even better, hope it is better now. Overall worst the stay.

We were a group of students from Prague visiting Krakow. This hostel was rented completely for our group. Staff is very friendly and helpful, hostel is clean and neat. It is a good place, as it is only a few minutes to the city centre. I can only recommend this hostel for a visit in Krakow.

The hostel is near the main square so that's a pretty good thing. Rooms are big and okay, but at night it gets very hot and you can sleep without any covers. The bar and the kitchen are pretty cool, they have all this games and coffee and tea to drink for free which is pretty cool. You get free...

Extremely disappointed with this hostel. The positive was the location which was close to the central area. That was it. We were happy to stay at a hostel with a bar however we did not expect the bar goers to have free reign to come into the hostel area. First we were unable to use the kitchen at all as...

A good hostel, with basic facilities. Clean, relaxed, and quite quiet. Beds are OK. Good value for money! Located in a quiet street near the old town (the main square is easily accessible from there) and the train station. However, it is quite far (25 min walk) from the Kazimierz Jewish quarter. There is a basic but sufficient breakfast served...

Lovely hostel, we had a shared room with other travelers and we didn't have any problems. Staff is very kind and helpful (they do the washing for you!!). Very close to centre and simply a lovely stay, will come back!
