Very good value for money. It is walking distance to the centre and owner was very helpful with us. It has all the basics and is located in a quiet area. Owner also offer information about the place and gave us some maps and offer some excursions if we want

This is a great hostel if you are looking for a quiet place away from the hustle and bustle of the centre. Everything you needed was there including free use of the washing machine which is great when you have been travelling for months! Good value for money in a decent location, definitely walking distance into Rynek but also trams... More

We stayed here for three days & that was a good time. Clean room, quite & nice. Located in old town, 10 minutes by foot from Rynek. Double-room is like apartments, with own kitchen & shower. Next time in Krakow we'll stay here again.

Well-run family business. Everything was clean and orderly. Staff was helpful when we asked for assistance (e.g. finding bus times on the internet). We had a very spacious room for the price. The low cost may be explained by the varying standard and casual composition of interior and furniture. They obviously haven´t put much money into giving the place a... More

i stayed here with friends last year. It was easy to find, and our room was huge. The bathroom was good, had everything you would expect, and there was also a kitchen, and a lounge with a pool table. It was perfect for a few nights in the city, and its close to all transport links.

Easy to find hostel, approx 20mins walk from the train station - follow the tram tracks instead of through the center of Krakow - one straight road and fewer people to avoid with your backpack/suitcase! Plenty of 24 hour supermarkets and local restaurants near by. Hostel is situated in an old building spread over 3 floors, the majority of the... More
