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....

This hostel has tons of character. It is partially a listed building, and the reception area is wonderful, with three sofa, drinks machines, old stone paintwork and great views over the main square. We had a twin room at the very top (if you don't like stairs don't stay here, it just goes up and up), and although our room,... More

Just had a lovely weekend there. It was kept very clean. The staff were lovely and there is no better location. We ate most lunches and dinners at the restaurant below called Max 18's because despite its fabulous location the food was very reasonably priced. I only stubbled with the number of stairs because I am probably 20 years older... More

Had an absolutely wonderful experience here. The location is perfect for tourists, with easy (<10 min walk) access to almost anywhere you'd want to go. The staff is really helpful and friendly! I stayed in an 18-person dorm and it was cleaner and quieter than other smaller rooms I've stayed in.

My boyfriend and i stayed in a private double room. Hostel itself was great, staff were nice and beds were comfy! Couldn't of asked for a better location!! Found it extremely noisy at night due to the other guests, but other than that it was great.

This was my first visit to Krakow, and I could not have stayed in a better location. Right on the old town square, which my room looked onto. I stayed in a twin room, which was bright and spacious. There are plenty of showers and toilets. On the top floor there is a large dining room/kitchen/tv lounge. Breakfast is included... More

Couldn't of had a better located hostel. The view from the hostel overlooking the town center was nice. Wifi and breakfast were free. Nice and helpful staff, would definitely go again. There are tours that will pick you up in the main lobby which is also nice.
