I spent five days at Kajzer Hostel together with my students and we were...family!! The owners are extremely friendly and Maria is an excellent cook. We were treated like friends. I hope I will have the opportunity to visit them in the future.

Wonderful place with great location (walking distance from Old Town and Kazimierz). Room exceed our expectations. We've stayed in hotels in higher ratings with just a fraction of conveniences offered at Kajzer Hostel. The owners are fantastic hosts, who contributed to family like atmosphere. Amazing food!

Exceptionally friendly, polite and accommodating staff - a very warm welcome! The foyer offers free city maps and tourist information leaflets plus a couple of shelves of reading books in a variety of languages if you forget yours. The room was more a suite than a room, with a fully equipped kitchen (and very well stocked mini bar!), shower room,... More

I have stayed in places with a higher star rating that are not half as nice as Kajzer Hostel. We had a lovely room (number 1) which was spotless when we arrived, comfy beds, a spacious room with a small balcony, good kitchen. Located in the former Jewish ghetto it is close to some historic sites, also close to some... More

This is a really nice place to stay, it's quiet, clean, very well appointed rooms, hair dryers, fans, TV, fridge, kettle, Tea / Coffee & mineral water etc... I have stayed in many 3 star hotels that could not come close to the KAJZER in all respects, I really recommend you give it a go. I have to tell this...... More

If you want to make a nice city-trip you must go to Krakow. And book your stay in this hotel. Friendly crew, good food and very clean rooms! Taxi to town center costs nothing... The hotel manager booked the trips to the salt mines and Auschwitz for us and that was a good deal!

We liked that Kajzer Hostel is located in a residential neighborhood rather than a touristy one. It was a 10-15 minute walk to Wawel Hill and just across the river from Kazimeriz. It is also on the tram line for times you don't feel like walking. We enjoy having space and this room was very large with 2 lounge chairs... More
