Great location, clean rooms, decent breakfast spread and excellent service/help from the reception about booking trips and tours. Right on the main square so impossible to lose your way when coming back from a night out. Within walking distance of all major city centre attractions - free walking tours leave from across the square on a daily basis.

The most important thing about this hostel is that its location is sublime. The 24hrs reception desk is pretty useful if you want to come in late/early in the morning. Furthermore, the rooms are clean, and there's plenty of kitchens and bathrooms, so you avoid the usual hostel ques.

I have visited many hostels from Western to Eastern Europe. Also Asia and America....best experience has been here so far. Why? First the rates are great, wifi has multiple routers so better than other places in reliability. Also bathrooms are clean and of standard you would expect. Lockers in rooms come with booking. The manager is very helpful, and the... More

The breakfast is very good. The heat works. The rooms are nice and clean. Location is perfect, in the market square. Cracow is the place people go to go out, get drunk and then get more drunk. I get it. Not all people, though. I went there for the history, specifically, the history of my family, which is not a... More

This was a lovely hostel right in the main square of Krakow. Despite its central location, there was little to no noise from the street at night, so got a pleasant sleep. The hostel had a good vibe - not too busy with lots of people partying but with enough travellers for you to meet people and head into town... More

Cracow Hostel is just amazing - the location, interior, spirit and people, everything fits. Location doesn't get any better.Staff is friendly and lovely (as Polish girls come :P ) and the price is also fair, no problem there. On my second stay there I did not even look for other hostels, just hoped they will have a free bed :)

Right in the middle of the old town square, perfect location, friendly staff and nice clean rooms for a cheap price. Breakfast was included and the kitchen was very nice Reception desk organised all tours, it was all very cheap and easy to see the best of Krakow. Would absolutely come back again as solo or with a group.

I have had groups stay in other hostels in Krakow over the years, but when we walked into this one, it was obviously the best choice ever! The view of the square is unmatched and the staff is exceptional. I have now used this hostel 4 times over the past few years and it is always welcoming. As long as... More
