Quarto espaçoso com banheiro privativo e tudo bem limpo. Localizado perto do centro antigo, da estação de trem e ônibus. As pessoas que reclamam deveriam lembrar que se trata de um hostel e não de hotel. Para hostel é excelente!! Spacious room with private bathroom and clean everything well. Located near the old town, the train and bus station. People... More

This place is wonderful! Staff was very friendly, helpful and spoke good English. The man that checked us in actually carried our bags to the apartment! Very good size one bedroom apartment. Functional bathroom. Great kitchen with frig, plates, silverware, stove and electric tea kettle. Beds we're great for me. They have a futon-like mattress. The person I traveled with... More

The room we got was nice, big and clean. A bit old but classy furniture. The included breakfast is great with a choice of fresh bread, good coffee and a plate of ham and cheese as well as cereals. Only downside is that some rooms are south side and can get a bit hot without aircon. Staff also is very... More

We stayed in this Hostel for 1 night. The location is perfect. It was our first time in Krakow. The hostel is just few minutes away from the Main Railway Station, which is great. The service is great. In the evening we could just chill and watch TV, use Wi-Fi. The room we had was a double room with a... More

The place is very central. Near the main rail/bus stations and near the "Galleria". A big & fancy shopping mall (the best I have been to, in my visit to Poland). 10 min' walk to old town. The staff is extremely nice, spatially Arthur, who had a lot of patience to explain all and any detail about the city. The... More

This was a good place to stay. Clean and spacious rooms with helpful staff. Location is excellent; near to all transportation needs, interesting venues, shops and attractions. It is value for money regarding the cost per night. It is safe and secure. Modest breakfast and tea/coffee all day long. Five minutes walk to the central train and bus stations with... More

This hostel is centrally located, just a few blocks from the train station/Galleria and a few more from Planty Park, the Old Town, Wawel, etc. In a great building, but be careful: it consists of three stories (no lift). I was lucky to have a room on the ground floor, but had carried my 40 kilos of luggage up three... More

Excellent staff. Lovely warm welcome and they really went out of their way to make sure we had all the information we needed. They are very knowledgeable about the area. The couple that owned the hostel are exceptionally nice, and the night porter was extremely hard working and interesting to talk to about Poland. The location is excellent, very short... More
