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

I did an Eurotrip, so I stayed in a lot of hostels and this was by far the best ! Great services, great personnel. The hostel itself is nicely decorated. The rooms were great. There is not a single aspect that I can think that was not good. But the best thing of all was hospitality and friendship that lives... More

Cracow Hostel is the best place to stay in Cracow, just in the centre of everything. Perfect location, perfect rooms, perfect staff. Do not think of anywhere else. If you do not want to climb stairs, you can ask for a room at the ground floor, then the wc and shower is all yours.

Excellent location, in front of the main square. Reception staff friendly and they provided all the information that we ask about the city in general. Rooms are very small and it was not clean every day, but the bathrooms were clean all day long. Breakfast was included but there were few options of food. Wifi only worked in the first... More

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
