It was really nice to stay at this hostel. Especially the location is really nice. When comparing the price and the conditions, i can say Zodiakus is good for staying. Beds could be more comfortable...

The hostel was kept very clean. The staff were lovely and the location is perfect (close to the city center and bus/train stations). The breakfast was nice but not very varied (buffet-style). Highly recommend for solo female travelers (female dorm).

I was looking for somewhere near the bus station with space and this wouldn't have been my first choice by far. Th e reviews I had read on Hostelbookers about the hard beds and thin mattresses were true so I had to leave after 2 nights as my old back problems were flaring up again. Luckily I wasn't bothered by... More

Perfect location - very close to the old town, shopping centre and the train station. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We booked the twin private room which was very spacious and not too expensive. Lockers in the room. Free wifi. The place was a bit run down and the bathrooms were always filthy for our entire stay.

I originally chose the Zodiakus Hostel because it was close to the train station, but besides it being close the train station its located in a nice area close to a lot of things. The lady's that work there were very very nice to me. I arrived at the hotel pretty late and a lot of the restaurants nearby were... More

Me and my group of friends were moved to the Zodiakus from the original hostel we booked and what a fantastic stroke of luck that we were! The location of the hostel is fantastic - only a 5 minute walk from the Old Market Square. The facilities were of a good standard for a hostel, with brilliant bathrooms and a... More

Excellent location and very friendly, helpful staff! I don't think I've ever met a group of staff that made me feel so welcome. Immediately I felt like I found a new home. Clean, nice and great atmosphere! I was a bit apprehensive from reading some of the sour reviews, but after staying here I can say that much of it... More

I had a private room for 2 nights with my girlfriend, they gave us a 4 beds for the same price with private toilet too. Excellent location, close to the old town ,the royal palace/cathedral and the main train station. Staff was helpful and kind and breakfast was more than enough, what else could we ask for about 10 euros... More

Zodiakus Hostel was perfect for what we were looking for. Extremely close to the train station and Old Town. The train station was about 3 blocks away and 2 of them were across the square. Also, there is no need to cross a street since there is a pedestrian underpass complete with "toalety" & shops. From this same underpass the... More

Very close to the Main Market Square. A 5 minute walk through the great park. Staff very nice and helpful. The breakfast is amazing (if you're up early). Clean. Very nice common room, with tv, films, etc... The only "negative" thing is the slow wifi, which ends up by not being a problem since in Kraków you can find free... More
