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

A short tram ride outside of old town near the Jewish district. Up two flights of stairs to the stairway hostel. Originally had one night booked but this was extended to 2, due to trains. Very average hostel, rooms were ok, however bedding was poor. Interesting shower facilities, where the curtain didn't stop water escaping all over the communal bathroom... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, and had no problems staying here. It was nice to be able to lock our stuff away, the beds were comfy, the showering and toilet facilities were generally wet clean. One small problem was it was just a curtain for the shower. But the staff were happy to help, and book trips for you,... More

The best experience in a cheap hostel !! I spent 4 days @ STAIRWAY and I had a very good time. The hostel is the cheapest one in Crakow and far only 20 min walking from Market Square. The Jewish area is characteristic and full of 100% local people (don't be afraid about this). The manager of the hostel is... More

Our room was really cosy and clean. We all had a locker under our bed in which to store our things. There were quite a few showers and toilets in the hallway and we never had to wait to use one. There was a nice communal area with bean bags and the kitchen was really new. Breakfast was provided in... More
