The hostel had a nice and helpful staff. The rooms was clean and the beds was stacked on each other. We had one of two rooms with windows facing the street making it somewhat noisy at night. The location was the best part. Very close both to old town and to the station and the giant mall. The visit was... More

The hostel is in a good location but the general feature is quite decadent. The manager canceled my 5days reservation which I booked online because I arrived few hours later that he aspected. I called advising about the delay and on the phone I was promised not to worry but when I arrived there the room was given to somebody... More

This place is 1st class - clean, well located and has everything you want. The people that work there are very friendly and helpful. A 5 star hotel it is not, but a 5 star hotel it is. Highly reccommended.

location is great, the hostel is (generally speaking) clean, but our sheets had a funky smell to them- I think they may wash them in the washing machine in the bathroom, instead of using a professional laundry cleaner. There is just one toilet and one shower for all of the 5 rooms (some of them dorms). The guy at the... More

The owner deserves a medal as he was the sole employee of his business 24/7 on call. its right beside train station and is fairly priced. the rooms are of a very good standard, more to a hotel standard than a hostel.

I booked this hostel based on the great 5 star reviews it had on this website. Now, having stayed there, I can only guess that these are not genuine reviews. We travelled for 3 weeks around Europe, and have done a lot of travelling over the last few years and always stay in relatively cheap accommodation. This is the worst... More

Apenna hostel simply highlights my journey in krakow. On my arrival I discovered the hostel I originally booked was shut down, and this hostel's owner kindly invited me in! The environment is so comfortable and location is perfect, just 5mins from the bus and train terminal, as well as the old city. The owner is so friendly and helpful, he... More
