Ever dreamed of waking up to the sound of horse carts pitter-pattering outside the window and having a view from your dorm bed? Then you have to stay at Cracow hostel. It was awesome! The hostel is literally on the main square! The hostel itself was quiet as long as you are not staying on the top floor (where the... More

There are 2 comfy common rooms and excellent kitchen facilities. Many bathrooms. Free breakfast was a great assortment of cheese, bread, eggs, cereal, fresh tomatoes and more! Couldnt... More

After spending two nights at another hostel in Krakow I switched to Cracow Hostel and was very happy I switched. So much better in every way. The location is excellent, although because it is situated on the main city square there is quite a bit of street noise audible until late at night. The common kitchen / common room is... More

Amazing location, clean rooms, good bathrooms, great common area, good wifi. My personal highlight was the Subway restaurant which is located at the back door of the hostel! On the hour every hour the trumpet man at the top tower of the church in the main square plays a tune on his trumpet.

Best location, friendly staff, nice and clean rooms and bathrooms. Love it . Be with 4 teen girls and they love it the idea that even they back to they room they open the window and they still feel like part of the outside live :-). Thank you. We will back again ( already booked room for winter :-) )

On the main square, couldn't be better. Staff very helpful, could do with a room for luggage instead of the reception but excellent anyway! Plus they forgot to charge me for the washing machine, no dryer but there are clothes rails! Bathrooms are excellent, breakfast is decent cereals, hot drinks, juices, milk and eggs and bread.

The hostel was very clean and the staff were excellent, however the hostel was really let down on the noise front, being on the square there was loud noise outside till 4/5am every morning and there seemed to be a lot of noisy drinking games going on while we were there, despite there being a no noise after 10pm policy....
