This hostel is only a 15 minute walk to the main town center and it was really easy to find. Our room was warm, clean and comfortable. We had a lovely private bathroom with an excellent shower. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was ok, we had it the first morning and decided the next morning to eat... More

This hostel is rather quirky, our room was decorated with the theme of one 1920's actress. The location is out of the city about a 15 minute walk into the town square. It has no real common area vibe just people coming and going. The heating isn't the greatest one night really cold and one really hot.the beds are very... More

Deco Hostel has a 1920s feel to it - the lights, the decor and the furniture. The place is really suitable for solo travellers as it is not a party hostel. It offers free super fast WiFi, a free laundry service (1st one) and has plenty of power sockets everywhere. Breakfast is not included but you can buy at a... More

We have been to Krakow on a grade 10 trip for the past years (around 5 or even more). We stayed in this hostel. The owner of the hostel organizes amazing program for a week including all of the major sites in Krakow. The hostel is pretty decent and is good for the school groups. It is located in a... More

It's warm like home, easy to reach from the bus or rail station, just 15 mins walk to the market square but won't be bothered by the crazy night noise there:) The staff are super friendly and really helpful with local info including whether to do tours or just do it yourself. This hostel was very good value for money... More

One of the worst places I have stayed ever. Internet didn't work the entire time, the beds were squeaky & some of the rooms are right on the street and you hear vehicles at all hours. The reception staff are rude and not at all helpful. Do yourself a favor and don't stay here

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.

The hostel was wonderful! The price was increadibly cheap, the staff was nice, the bathroom was clean, the rooms were big and cosy. The beds were very confortable and the there is a nice common room with a pc, television and an x-box. The common kitchen was very well furnished and always clean. Only 10-15 minutes walk from the city... More

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
