The hostel is located 3 mins away from the old city, the staff are very nice and helpful, the rooms are clean and organized, the bathrooms and the showers are excellent, and you can get a good breakfast by adding 1€ to the price, so I'd certainly reccomend the place. It is perfect for young people because of the friendly... More

Avoid this hostel like the plague! I booked for three nights. Paid part of my stay via hostelworld.com, the rest they would only accept in cash and provided no receipt. On the second day, they claimed I never paid them and when I tried to leave, they attempted to lock me inside of the hospital and a 200-pound cleaning lady... More

Dear Customer, Of course you paid a part of your reservation via hostelworld.com (12% commission) and the rest must be paid at the reception after arrival, you didn’t do that as our terminal was temporary out of order and you didn’t have enough cash during the check in, that is why we asked you to pay on the second day...

It is one of the best hostels I've ever been so far. The location is excellent (however first we got some problems finding the place, we've walked through twice, without realizing that is the entrance), everything is from a walking distance. The biggest pro is the staff, they are nice and helpful, always smiling and they help with anything. The... More

Ideally located - in a walking distance to main square, but not too close to hear any loud noises, near to amazing fruit&vegetable market. Looks really nice, rooms are clean and staff is really helpful. I got my room cleand even an hour before scheduled, so that counts for something. Rooms are nice, but I had to make the bed... More

Good location and close to Krakow Glowny station, clean and tidy and facilities quite good, beds comfortable and room (twin, no bathroom) great size. Only negative is the front of the building is very off-putting as its a gated dark door with dark foyer at night and you just go up a old rickity lift but worth the nerves!

We enjoyed staying here very much, we were there for a week in february 2013, in a group of 8. Ideally located, walking distance from every attraction in Krakow and the station, nice view and everything you need is present. Cosy decorated, worth every penny. At first we had a little bit trouble finding it, but this is not a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to GlobArt Hostel!Looking for a safe, elegant and perfectly situated hostel at a budget price? Then GlobArt Hostel is definitely the best choice! Great location: GlobArt is a brand new hostel located in the very centre of Krakow, just across the street from the city's most vibrant areas and only 5 minute walk from the train/bus station. There are buses and trams going to all parts of Krakow just in front of our door as well as the bike rental, so you can get easily wherever you want! And there's so much more GlobArt Hostel has to offer! Magnificent view: As it is situated on the 5th floor (don't worry, there's a lift) it has a marvelous window view with sight to literally all parts of Krakow. Just imagine drinking your morning coffee in our spacious common room and already admiring the beauty of the city! Extraordinary atmosphere: The old town in a hand reach, Academy of Fine Arts around the corner and a traditional food market on the other side build up the unique atmosphere of the place. You will have the opportunity to meet lots of interesting people and get to know more about Krakow and its culture then you might learn from tourist brochures. Our multilingual staff is always there to help and give information. Supreme comfort: And if you get tired of sightseeing, and visiting museum and/or bars you can relax in a green area next to our hostel or go shopping in one of the biggest shopping centres in Poland that is situated only 3 minute walk from our hostel. In GlobArt Hostel we thought about everything to make your stay in Krakow as pleasant and fun as possible. ... more   less
