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. Not right in the center but that was better because got to see other parts of the city, and very close to beautiful river. We walked around a... More

The staff here were incredibly helpful and gave us some great tips for where to visit/eat, but I was disappointed by the hostel itself. We stayed in a private room which didn't have any curtains meaning we were woken up as soon as the sun came up and couldn't really get dressed in privacy. As the hostel is arranged around... More

Friendly stuff, clean rooms, clean bathroom and toilets, clean kitchen and all premises. Free coffee and tea in the kitchen is also available. Also play station room and small library. Easy to get to know other people as there are many common areas, like couches, bean bags and eating area.. Internet worked perfectly. really great place!

Stairway hostel is one of the best hostels I've stayed in during my travels. Right in what used to be the Jewish ghetto, the location is full of history. The rooms are huge and the beds are amazingly comfortable. The bottom bunks even have enough room for you to sit up without being scared of hitting your head. Staff are... More
