Went there with four friends. We just left the hostel. Now on are way to Budapest. We have been there for two nights. Great location, cheap as hell and the people who worked there were great. We even had a few drinks with the staff. We loved it! :-)

The location is the best as it could be. It is at the main street to the centre, so you are on the main square in a minute. The room was normal, nothing surprised me, but I actually didn´t expect anything special. Everything OK. The only thing I didn´t like was that there was only one toilet together with the... More

We went with a group of 21 students and didn't really know what we had to expect of the hostel. When we came there we were relieved (finally there) but also a little bit shocked as there were only 2 showers and toilets. With a group of 21 that was a big surprise! Other than that, we had a lovely... More

You can't find in a place any more central than at Krakow Backpackers. For roughly 10€ for two nights at a 10-person bedroom, it was amazing value for money. Free wifi, free blankets, free cereal in the morning--the hostel lobby is a cool place to hang out too. The minor downsides are that there is only one bathroom for the... More

If you're looking for a big massive hostel with the maximum potential for meeting new people there are better places than Backpackers. I stayed here travelling on my own during the summer though and I have to say, small as it is it's a great place to meet a few people. The reception area has some seating and the staff... More

A 'brand spankin' new home on the Krakpacker landscape. This spacious place in a Polish palace, though not a hint of royal snobbery here will ye ne find. Rather, this place reminds us of the good ole days when the hostel was all about the relaxed vibe, big common spaces & smiling faces. The location is prime so get ready... More

Best hostel we ever stayed at. The atmosphere and the location was nothing less than perfect. Also, the staff was so friendly, helpful and made one feel very welcome. I would definitely recommend it to all who are traveling to Cracow...

Hostel is tucked at the back of a building along Florianska. Perfect as it's away from the buzz and noise but yet ust a mere 5 minutes' walk to the main square! While the rooms look a bit worn and old, but it was in a nice, cosy kind of way. Although it said breakfast was not included, free cereal... More
