Great hostel in a good location in Krakow. 5 minutes walk from the Old Town Square. I was able to walk everywhere in Krakow. The guy at the reception spoke perfectly good english. The staff is very friendly - always willing to help and give you info for whatever you need. Beds and bathrooms were fine for what we paid.... More

Yes nice sized kitchen and common room however was not used much when we were staying. Negatives - very dirty creepy court yard and stair well, I would... More

I stayed in Benedict hostel with my two sisters for two days and it is very good place for such low price. The stuff is helpful, and the atmosphere in hostel is very nice. The room was clean,hot water in the shower was always available, and you also get a free breakfast. If you don't ask for too much, this... More

Firstly, disregard most of these reviews as they are rather extreme even though I can see where they come from. Upon arrival, I was terrified due to the messy courtyard, which is used by several buildings. The stairs up are all broken too so this place is not one to judge by the cover, especially if you arrive at 1... More

This place is so damned cheap and I loved it. The staff were nice and breakfast although average, was free. 3 problems: washing machine wasn't the best, sometimes during the day staff didn't speak English, and some selfish old man staying there was being a moron. If you are reading this and are from the hostel, you should seriously kick... More

Ok if you can stay elsewhere then do. The worst thing about the place is the weird old men that live here permanently! We had two in our room and they made our stay incredibly uncomfortable. One has lots of boxes of his stuff taking up most of the already small amout of floor space. He was incredibly rude. He... More

I'll start with the 2 positive things about this hostel.. It's location since it is very close to the main square and has a nice park in front.. Also the price is excellent when travelling on a budget. However, the hostel is dark, gloomy and depressing. There are a few 60 year old men knocking around who have taken permanent... More

We stayed here for two nights and were not very impressed. Good points: Location- very close to the main station and next to a carrefour express Bad points: Rooms are dirty There is a weird old man (over 70 years old) who lives there permanently who thinks he owns the place. He walks around telling people to be quiet and... More

6 of us stayed in a big dorm room which looked pretty raggedy, but beds were comfortable and it was warm. You can't lock them, but you can lock your stuff in a cabinet. There was some noise during the night, so if you are a light sleeper bring earplugs. Facilities are small and a bit dirty, definitely the biggest... More

At first, the hostel may scare you a little bit, but things may change while you're there. It is unconventional, but it's cheap and has a good atmosphere. I booked one of the big dorms and I had a good experience. The facts that you should now: It's not fancy. Now they changed their name, but when I got there... More
