We really enjoyed our stay at the benedict hostel. It has a great location, just outside the city centre. The common room is really spacious and the kitchen well-equipped. All rooms are clean and it has a very good price-quality ratio. They offer tours and there is always a board with local events and happenings. Overall a great experience!

Hard to find at first, but when found a great and cheap accommodation. Sometimes the bathroom gets a bit busy with only two showers and two toilets but not a big problem since it is a rather small hostel. In the hot summers they put up fans in the common areas. Nice seating areas to hang out and mingle. Free... More

Booked for the price, haven't known many people who have been to hostels in Krakow so not a lot of ideas were thrown around. Took a while to actually find the hostel, no neon signs here, just a small A frame which was propped up inside the door. Upon first seeing it it's a bit of a shock after staying... More

Great location it is a few minutes of walk from the main plaza and you can go walking to most of the main attractions and terminal buses and train., the building is old but this leaves the place a little charming. The facilities are ok, the staff too. It have a guest kitchen with the basic things.

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
