A really lovely hostel, right in the centre of town. You are literally on the main square. There is wi-fi, clean toilets, washing facilities, great breakfast and top-quality staff. If you are going to stay in krakow, this is the place to be! The only improvement would be that the lagers in the lobby could be a bit cheaper, they... More

Fabulous hostel, in the best location you could wish for. Unfortunately, that means it's quite loud on the main square - but nothing that ear plugs can't block out! Bathroom facilities were good and clean - only had to wait once for a shower. Kitchen facilities were average - good amount of seating and space, breakfast was average, however, found... More

Stayed in a 10 person dorm and there was plenty of personal space along with two tables in the middle of the room also Good size lockers and storage space. Good location to... More

Hostel Cracow has a great location in the Old Town and has a wonderful staff, they were very helpful with our questions. The dorms and bathrooms were tidy and the kitchen was clean. The location is very central and probably more youth friendly than family friendly because of several clubs close to the location. We were up one night until... More

One of the best hostals I have ever visited. We have travelled around 9 countries in Europe the last 2 weeks and this is the best localized and the most confortable we stayed in. I think one of the positives things that shines in Cracow Hostal is the great treatment of his recepcionists.

I stayed at Cracow Hostel for 3 nights, and was happy with my stay. I really like the quaint, historic building it's located in, and the location could not be better, as it's situated right on the main square. The rooms were comfortable, as were the beds. The common area is convenient, and the layout of the bathrooms seems sensible... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed in the apartment for a night. I have to say that it was way beyond my expectations. Apartment is filled with everything you can ask for and it is very modern. Staff is really friendly and made us feel welcomed. Yet the best part are two huge windows with view on main market!

The place was no only nice and clean also really cheap. It's exactly at the square and everything is around it. Breakfast is served at the fourth floor in the kitchen area. The staff is really nice and helpful. You get a locker, big enough to put your stuffs and a key to lock it. Without doubt a good option... More

Ok so this Hostel is centrally located but that's about it. The rooms are overheating with no windows to speak of. Some windows have no curtain.The people are very loud at the hostel and finally lots of noise from the street. If you go ONLY to party I guess you're good but if you wanna see stuff during the day...
