(Just joined so this experience dates to May 2014) Location in the centre, friendly staff, quiet, and great value for money. I was there in the middle of the week in May and got to have the 6 bed room to myself for basically two days! Breakfast available was cereal+milk and toast+cheese/cream cheese. Tea was pretty awful but free. Clean... More

The best parts of this hotel are its location and value. It is right next to old town square and price per night is quite cheap. The downside is that the rooms are very tiny and the bed is horrible. The mattresses were old and stained and the bunk bed creaked every time I changed my position. The hostel was... More

Its location is the best (no more than 30 steps far away from main square!). It's clean, there are many shared bathrooms, a very simple breakfast is included in the price, personnel is very helpful... almost everything was more than ok. Rooms for two are tiny. I recommend it.

Wonderful location, right next to the town square. Breakfast was provided. Rooms and bathrooms were clean and tidy. Great value for money. Would have been nice to see some activities happening, we never saw anybody else while we were staying there.

I have spent 5 days in this great hostel: The location is just 1 minutes from the main square in Krakow(you can hear the magical sound of trumpet every hour), the rooms were very clean and everything in the hotel was new. But the best thing is how nice and helpful was the staff.

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.
