Very dark and small room, old furniture, dirty walls, uncomfortable bed, used towels. Overall, it seemed unclean. Also, there was a constant noise from water running in the bathroom because of the leaking toilet tank. We informed the guy from front desk, he checked it out, flushed the toilet and said the problem is fixed. Of course, 5 minutes later,... More

The best of this hostel is that it actually feels like a hotel with hostel like price. Very clean and nice layout of the room. Breakfast is excellent and very well located near the center of Krakow. People working in the hostel are also very nice and always willing to give information about the city.

This hostel is a short walk from Krakow market square, so the location works out well. Hostel staff members were professional and polite but not necessarily warm and welcoming. We had a room with an ensuite bathroom which was nice and comfortable. There was a weird and quite intense odor coming from the bathroom initially even though everything seemed quite... More

This hostel was in a good area with a few bars and shops nearby. The rooms were clean but bed cushion were worn making the bed a bit hard to sleep on. For the price its great and they offer a nice free breakfast!

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.
