Highly enjoyable stay and staff were pleasant and helpful when answering queries. Would definitely recommend for short breaks on a budget and backpackers. Wifi was the only slight issue as it was frequently down, however this wasn't really a concern for us.

We booked a room for 3 people and they gave us a spacious room with four beds and one was above the others (climb a ladder to get to it) - very funky room great for backpackers. The bathroom was also spacious and clean. Reception staff helpful when booking tours and breakfast was standard toast, tea coffee etc. Overall fab... More

We stayed at Kadetus Hostel back in May 2009 and we were lucky to have a refurbished room with en suite to ourselves. We got a very cheap laundry service from the reception and found the place excellent value for the service. The hostel is also within walking distance of all the Krakow main tourist attractions. Highly recommend it and... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this hostel. The location was perfect, being just round the corner from the castle, about five minutes walk into the old town and three stops on the tram from the central station. The room itself, although basic, was really nice and the shared kitchen and bathroom facilities were excellent. Above all else though the... More

The highlight of this hostel was the big kitchen and the clean bathrooms. Our bedroom was nice, and even had a balcony, although I agree with other reviewers that it could do with a little attention to detail. The free breakfast in the cafe attached to the hostel was a lovely touch.
