We picked this hostel as it was close to town and cheap. It certainly was easy to find and only a short walk from krakow old town. Check-in took a bit long because there was only one person at the desk attending to someone else but staff were helpful and friendly. I was expecting something different from the room as... More

Room was okay, breakfast consisted of one choice of cereal, one choice of meat, one choice of cheese and some bread, however, you cannot expect much more from a budget hostel. If the mediocre breakfast was my only issue with this hostel I would probably have given it another star. I have never met such rude staff in my life.... More

Small room with bunk beds. Clean bathroom. Breakfast was standard tea, cereal and bread. Staff were helpful on reception and gave us lots of information. Really good location for old town, about a 5 minute stroll, if that. Only stayed one night but would definitely recommend to backpackers.

Ridiculously friendly, kind staff, clean everything, stocked kitchen, mad location and a fun bar next door - it's a seriously tops place to crash. We're backpackers, and Kadetus was the best hostel to date. I would highly recommend it - even to my mum.

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
