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.

Clean and centrally located extremely close to the main square, the hostel is also cheaper than I would have expected. Perhaps it could be improved upon by the installation of room keys and a more secure entry system, and the showers were a little cramped. Apart from these honest criticisms, though, I immensely enjoyed my time there. I've read a... More

Benedict hostel is situated just two minutes walk to city centre, so it's a perfect location for a hostel. Rooms are clean and comfortable, with beds having their own lamps, which is very practical. The staff was very polite and helpful, for any information we needed. The spirit of this hostel lives through its common space (sitting room), because it's... More

Perfect place to stay on low budget. Good hostel on the edge of the old town of Cracow and a 3 minute walk to the Market Square, and 5 minutes from most attractions. I chose this hostel because of its super reviews and I was not disappointed. The staff were all friendly and helpful, they do offer free earplugs. Very... More
