I just got back from this hostel. Please don't visit. If it can be broken it is. You can't use the front door you have to go down a dark alley to get in which must be nice if you are female. None of the showers are in proper working order there is a dangerous lump in the floor in... More

i have stayed here regularly for several years but just returned (October 2014) and part is closed, things looking very run down (doors off lockers, floor of breakfast room a trip hazard, no security at night etc.). Breakfast from 0800 to 1000 but started an hour late on Thursday and not at all on Friday. Pity since I liked the... More

I think the Lonely Planet was a bit out of date when it recommended this place, either that or they were high on something and didn't realise how foul this place was. First thing, the locks on the bathroom don't work- not that that's an issue because the toilet doesn't flush and the shower doesn't work. This "villa" (lol) has... More

This hostel almost ruined my Krakow experience. Dirty rooms. Locks don't work on the doors. Bathrooms were filthy and covered in mould, always wet floors and some had holes on the wall. I almost threw up once because the smell was so bad. Kitchen was also disgusting. Downstairs bar was mouldy and musty. There was a weird middle aged short... More

Excellent location right between Wawel Castle and Kasimierz, and tram lines super close as well. Fun vibe - spartan breakfast included, as well as some kielbasa sand bread on sat nights. Basement bar was minimally stocked with beer, but still a great place to meet fellow backpackers. Wifi was very spotty. Not posh, but very comfortable!

I've stayed here several times in the last 8 years and I keep coming back. The location is amazing. If you stay on the "new" side the bunks are sturdy and wooden and the mattresses comfortable. Also you have a shelf, power outlets, and reading lights (if they work) in each bunk. There are ample lockers in the rooms, big... More

At our arrival we couldn't get the room that we had booked previously so we were offered separated rooms with other people. After that they gave us ancient towels that we had to pay at a ridiculous price as the bathroom was floated and the water wasn't running properly. Moreover, when we went to sleep at night there was a... More
