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

There's no key, the room is open all the time, includes during the night or when you go out. Anyone can enter the room anytime, there is no security that prevents anyone, no guest, entering the hostel. The rooms are dirty, small and messy. We were hosted for 4 days, no time someone cleared the room and took out the... More

Booked a twin room under the name 'Pascal Rooms' on booking.com and ended up at this hostel. Wasn't clear on the website that we would actually be staying here, or even in the street where this place was! You have to walk through an unmarked door into a courtyard where the hostel is sign posted, but seeing as we were... More

I am not sure about the bad reviews but maybe we are not really hard to sastisfy. The hostel was cheap and we got what we paid for and more. To get breakfast in such a low price was surprising and it is definitely NOT a normal thing for hostel. Showers were clean when we arrived and if they were... More

I booked a 3 bed dorm and the 3 bed was bunk beds on each other... It was very annoying cos it was noisy when the other 2 people climbed in their beds. It was very cheap so I shouldn't complain about this. Although the showers were horrible. There was no space to put your clothes. Not even a single... More

I went to Krakow with a friend to spend a few days sightseeing and visiting Auschwitz, just for a mini-break. We booked this hostel as it was REALLY cheap, and we were realistic about what we were going to get! The location was very good, it was about a 10-15 minute walk from the train station that we'd arrived at,... More

The atmosphere was depressing. Dark and dingy and just sucked the happiness out of me! The showers were fairly dirty though not disgusting. The rest of the hostel was clean. Seemed to be a different staff member each day. Most were helpful, one had a BIG attitude problem, or I caught him on a bad day. The kitchen was a... More

After getting my bearings at the central railway station, it was easy to find the street the hostel on. However, it was at night so I passed it because the sign is not well lit and it's in the Polish name,not the anglican name that I booked under (Benedict Hostel) and you have through a courtyard first. Climbing up the... More

Incredibly cheap hostel (5$ for a bed in dorm) in wonderful city of Kraków. Location - perfect. 15 minutes on foot from train/bus station, few steps away from the old town. To me - it was easy to find as it's very well signed. Dorm room - not really big and very basic, but ok. Enough toilets and showers for... More

We booked a double private room at this hostel. The location cannot be better, it's literally steps away from the main market square, which is exactly where you want to be in Krakow. The hostel itself can be hard to find, but at the listed address, you have to enter something of a courtyard, and then another door, then go... More
