I was impressed with the breakfast. It has its own bar. They were very accommodating. But it can be noisy on the street side (ask for the back side). Close to the main square and just though the gate) FYI no elevator so consider this if you have problems with bags or stairs. All in all very good

The hostel is centrally located, clean and serves a decent breakfast. However, my stay was totally ruined by a group of extremely drunk English men rampaging the hotel and the streets outside all night. It got worse when they repeatedly tried to break my door down convinced it was their room despite my shouting through the door and their key... More

Pros- Excellent location. The hostel is located right on a main street, right down the road from the main square, and maybe a 10 minute walk from the train station. Awesome stay for the price. There were 4 of us and it cost us about 75 USD a couple for 2 nights, while breakfast included. Can't beat that. Free wifi... More

The hostel is located just a few steps from the main square, and it's surrounded by many cafes and restaurants, always alive and vibrant. The rooms are decent and clean, the location is superb! Breakfast was fresh and offered a nice selection. Overall a positive experience!

The hostel is close to both the station and the city center, which is very convenient. The room was comfortable, the bathroom large and clean. At night the street outside was crowded, but as long as you keep the window closed, it is not too loud. The breakfast buffet offered everything you need, the breakfast room was nice and comfortable.... More

I must confess that I had my worries about this ho(s)tel, given the fact that it was a last minute booking and that there were some negative reviews. However, everything was just fine: ultra-central location, beautiful view from the window, rich breakfast buffet, large rooms. The cleanliness was OK (not the best but decent enough) and the staff was more... More

Booked last minute on booking.com and got a great deal for a single room. Clean room with two beds and a table and a lot of room. Big clean modern bathroom across the hall - shared with two other rooms but it was never occupied when I needed it. Internet worked with no problems. Good breakfast with juice, breads, yogurt...

The Good - The location was excellent, right by the Florianska Gate and only three minutes walk from the main market square. I had a double room with private bathroom and both were basic but clean. The Bad - Despite the amazing location the one thing that would put me off staying here again is the noise in the night.... More

For me the Brama Hostel had the best location. Right at the Gate. 5 minute walk to the train station, 5 minute walk to the Market Square and St Mary's church, The breakfast was pretty good, and on the day of our Auschwitz tour, I was able to make a little sandwich and pack it away to eat on the...
