Guy always hanging around reception stole my beer from the fridge. Everything is good about this hostel, the staff. the building, the location, the computer, the beds, the showers, the bathroom, except him.

The Hostel is quite a bit from the city center but easily reachable by tram or walking for a bit. The beds are decent and have a big locker for everybody. There was quite a bit of street noise, especially from the trams in the morning, even with the windows closed but I guess this is an issue nearly everywhere... More

Get off and on the left side of the road on the corner. Reception is open 24 hours a day and speaks English. Rooms are clean. Yes it's... More

This hostel was very cheap which was great for us as we were interrailing around Europe. However, it is not near the city centre at all, you have to get a tram or a taxi (cheap) to and from. Rooms were clean but very hot. You have to pay for air con which was not made clear to us

Stayed in this hostel last month for about 5 days. The best part - it is cheap. The rooms are clean, there is a kitchen (fully equiped, but somethimes not so tidy at all), bathrooms are shared. What bothered me the most was the constant noise from the reception. Staff was listening to music (quite loud) or visitors were talking.... More

Lwowska 26 was the first hostel of our interrailing trip! The hostel is located in the old jewish guettos, leaving you in the heart of some great history, although it was pretty far from the centre, the trams were easy to reach and the staff are willing to guide you! The rooms where basic and kept clean! A Luagge room... More

The room was clean but towels, shampoo, basics are not provided. Kitchen is available and well equipped. The location is not in the city center but it's easy to reach. What I didn't like mostly was the part of the staff to be honest- the feminine part was helpful and nice but guys are very noisy and not sure what... More

by far the best part of this hostel is the lobby - with plenty of space to talk to people, watch a game, play scrabble together or have breakfast. the beds are comfortable and clean, and the only downside would be the bathroom - be ready to share it with everyone on the floor.

Stayed in the hostel in summer 2014 with friends (from Australia) who came to KRK to visit me. We stayed in 6 bed dorm. Great staff, helpful and friendly. Clean bathrooms. Not right in the center but at least it was quiet and without all the party noises from the street like in the market square. We paid only 30... More

Stayed at the stairway hostel in summer 2013 with a friend, we booked a shared room but had a nice room just for us which was very nice. Great staff, very friendly.
