I spent three nights at heynow hostel with my boyfriend and we were very happy with our choice. The hostel is located literally 20m from the old square and nevertheless is very quite. It is true that you can hear the trumpet playing every hour but I think this adds some atmosphere and was not bothering us at all. The... More

This excellent hostel is steps from the main square in Krakow Old Town, perfect for rolling out of bed and going straight to the free walking tours that leave from in front of St. Mary's Basilica! I visited Nov 30-Dec 2nd, and the hostel was very quiet (although you can hear the trumpeter from the square every hour); my friend... More

We were two female travelers (in our early twenties) and a bit picky so decided that we would book a private room (rather than the dorm)! The room was lovely with two single beds and was furnished nice and was clean and warm. The hostel it's self was tastefully decorated and the staff were very nice. Location: This hostel is... More

We went on November 2012 to Krakow and stay there for 4 nights. The location is wonderfull in The main street of Krakow, Florianska. In less than one minute on foot you'll be on the main square. New and clean. The rooms were simple but enough. The reception was friendly and helpfull. Very recomendable if you go with friends.

Dear travlers, We have stayed here several nights. Although its a little bit more expensive than a dorm, it is well worth it. Rooms are great and clean, staff is very helpful and friendly. And the kitchen has everything you'll need and clean! The location is also perfect. All in all a very nice hotel. Don't hesitate to book here.... More

Himself and I booked into Heynow Hostel in a private twin room (#6 on level 2) with shared bathroom, staying four nights - Thursday through until Monday. Our overall experience was not one of a 'home away from home' but rather just a place to stay that's central. My experience is worse than Himself's but we agreed that we wouldn't... More

We stayed here for 1 night before catching the train into western Ukraine. The hostel is in a fantastic location only seconds from the main square and easy to find. It is in a wonderful old building which has only recently been renovated, the fittings are all Ikea type furniture and it was nice and clean. They seem to discourage... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our newly opened (June 2011) hostel is where history meets modernity. Feel the atmosphere of Krakow in a comfortable, cosy and quiet place, situated in a newly restored medieval building. You will find us on Florianska - the main street of Kraków, few steps (about 20, to be more specific) from the heart of the city - The Main Market Square. ... more   less
