I stayed here with a group of friends in the first week of March and found the place and facilities excellent. I've always been a great believer that you get what you pay for and, as this place was cheap, I didn't expect it to be the Ritz. If all you are going to do is sleeping here, then its... More

My friend and I stayed at Hostel Faust early December. The price of the hotel was really cheap and the room was great. The location of the hostel is probably the best feature. There is a bar right opposite the hostel with drink as low as 20p!!!! There is also nightclubs within 100 yards. Would definitely recommend this place and... More

The hostel is extremely close to the "movida" of Cracow and to the main square so it is suitable for young people who want to have fun. There is a bar in the basement where you can get a discount for your drinks. The rooms are comfortable (we had a double room with shared bathroom) without any towels, soap or... More

Thank God I read bad comments about this place only after I stayed over there. Perhaps they solved their problems, but i had no bad experience except that it was a little too noisy in the yard early in the morning for a short moment. And walls there are too thin so if you're staying whole day and night in... More

I stayed in this hostel for three nights. Checking into the hostel was a hassle - although I had given my credit card number I had to pay again and there was administrative confusion. You have to leave a deposit for the towels which they will try to forget to return. The hostel is right next to a party area... More

I stayed at Faust with my wife in a private room a few months ago. At first everything seemed fine and the front desk was fairly friendly and helpful. We checked into our room and when we went to bed, I noticed that there seemed like there was too much space between the lock and the door frame and it... More

Stayed in the Hostel Faust for 2 nights with a group of friends on a stag do. Rooms basic with just beds and a couple of wardrobes but rooms were clean and beds were comfy. Only one bathroom on each corridor meant a bit of a queue but the shower was good. Hostel is in a great location just off... More

I was a bit worried about booking this place. It is right in the city centre very close to the amazingly stunning main square, and it's only £12 a night. That means that there has to be something wrong with it right......wrong. It's a hostel just of a side street in a little courtyard. It has it's own little underground... More
