We chose this hostel because it's 1 minute away from the bus station and we were both arriving late at night and parting early in the morning. The staff were really nice and instantly upgraded us to a WHOLE APARTMENT (having booked a small room for two people) for having booked in advance. They also offered breakfast and recommendations of... More

Good location - Near the Kraków Central Railway Station & Bus Station. And its big shopping mall. Easy walk to the old town area. Nice friendly staff. Good breakfast even though I didn’t eat any. A bit costly compared to other Poliish hostels though. I stayed there around Sept, 2014.

I stayed here a couple nights in June 2014 and had a wonderful visit. The hostel is in a historical building that is very well-maintained. It actually felt more like I was I was staying in somebody's home as opposed to a hostel or hotel. The common area has the feel of a living room. The entire place is very... More

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

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

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
