The hostel is tucked away out of the centre, but we walked in every day and it took about ten minutes, and there are loads of really great and extremely cheap restaurants nearby. I can highly recommend Chata. We had a lovely two course meal - four pints of beer and it came to the equivalent of £12! The décor... More

The hostel has a 1920s theme, meaning it's decoration is pretty cool. It's a bit of a walk to town, but it is walkable. Bathrooms were a bit of an odd layout but were clean. Unfortunately, the wooden beds and wooden floors in the rooms creaked an awful lot whenever you moved, making it noisy anyway but also disturbed sleep.

This is a probably a nice place for budget travellers looking to make friends, with lots of common space including a small garden with terrace outside. However, many visitors (including groups of high school kids) didn't clean up after themselves, left dirty dishes and garbage. Big flies were swarming in the garden and jumped into our room when we opened... More

We stayed in an 8 bed dorm and the beds were so comfortable and there was plenty of room for everyone's things. The location is good - 10 minutes into the old town and near lots of good supermarkets and cheap restaurants. The kitchen facilities are good. As well as common room and bar areas. The showers and toilets are... More

The rooms of the hostel are clean and the beds are very comfortable. The bathrooms are very clean and everything works well. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It is a 15 minute walk to the City centre. There is nothing going on in the area where the hostel is located, even though there are a couple of convenience... More

We stayed here in March 2012 and loved it! From the outside you may have doubts but once through the door it's fab! We booked a double room (cabaret) which was warm, spacious and romantic!(though the bed was squeaky!!) There was a huge heater in one corner - which we cranked up one night to our mistake - hot!

We were put up at this hotel by the Krakow Shanty Festival. We stayed as a Shanty Group. The rooms were pleasant and beds comfortable and warm. The all you can eat breakfast each day was lovely. The receptionists were very good and attentive and had plenty of time to help us. Clean shower rooms and toilets. Showers a bit... More
