It is true that this is sort of an odd place, but it is also very cheap - just around 3 pounds pr night. The elderly man who lives there is a bit weird, but friendly. We had no problems and the location is great, just five minutes walk from the old town.

I was surprised with this great experience, this is the first time I stay in a Hostel, of course you have the option to stay in a 1 person (single) room, what makes everything easier. The breakfast was basic but very honest and it was great to talk to other people from all over the world. The great think about... More

So the worst part of this hostel is that it has BED BUGS. I have more than 40 bites, largest of which is bigger than the size of my thumb. So despite its other flaws of the weird old men, 3 bunk beds, smelly entrance, terrible wifi where all my friends couldn't connect to the internet, showers that run out... More

I went to kraków with four friends and stayed at this hostel. The management is not only friendly but also extremely helpful. They booked our trips to Auschitwz and other places and gave us all the important sightseeing information. This made our trip a lot easier. Additionally, the location and cleanliness of the place made our stay really pleasurable.

I stayed here back in october and have waited until now to write this. Me n my travelling buddy arrived late at night around 12am and I must say the building gave us the creeps. What made it worse was when the socially awkward guy at the front desk told us he ant take cards so we had to go... More

I liked this place so much. Room was very clean, beds are not so comfortable, but the atmosfere in this hostel is unique, you feel like you are at home. Free breakfast, hot water, wi-fi, helpful stuff and such a low price for all that. Thanks, you made my staying in Krakow even more beautiful!

When planning my travel I tried to be as frugal as possible as I have experienced some wonderful cheap hostels. To be honest this isn't really one of them. The shower facilities gave you no where to put your things and everything felt a bit dirty. Especially the bedding which didn't fully cover the mattress. Positives were the free breakfast... More

We paid 45€ for two nights for a twin room. we knew we had to pick the keys up in a certain street, no idea that it was at the benedict hostel, which is really depressing and smells sooo bad! We have been brought to the nearby street, 5min walking: location really close to the centre and the public library,... More

This looks very different when you come and see it. The toilets are not clear also the shower. There is no hot water. Service personal is not so kind and want to charge you something that you dint use like blankets. Dont come here. It is cheap but there is lot of places better then this for a same price.
