Not a nice experience at all. One of the staff who worked on July 31st in the morning (Westerplatte 12) was terribly rude to me and my mum who was trying to contact me on the hostel phone as my mobile phone didn't work in Poland. He literally hanged up on her while she was trying to ask him if... More

This hostel is up to date and clean with good facilities. It is located around the corner from the station and about a 2 minute walk from the main square of Krakow. You get good value for your money with blue hostel so I'd recommend it. I stayed here with 6 other friends for 3 nights whilst interrailing and it... More

We spent there two nights, i consider their room quite decent, I could smell the purity when I entered. So that was quite good, the bed was also comfortable. I think that the best advantage of this hostel is that it is really close to the main square, that was priceless for me. But attention, the breakfast is interesting, you... More

Its centrally located. It is a old building but the it has all the amenities. Jerzy (the owner) is very accommodating and was... More

I suppose to stay in the hostel with a friend of mine- as a last minute solution (most of the hotels been booked out by the time) however I have never met anyone as rude, incompetent in my entire life. The person who works there- dare to tell us that he can be impolite and rude and there is nothing... More

Sorry, this review is really late - had stayed here in early December of 2009. Good location within a stone's throw from the market square, and is relatively close to the Krakow Glowny. Had booked a private room with shared bath but room wasn't yet available upon my check-in so I was housed temporarily in a female dormitory. Easily secured... More

First - it is a really nice location - a few minutes walk from main square. What is typical for this part of town - you need to search a place to park a car by yourself. But as it was weekend, the parking was free of charge. Room and bathroom was clean, beds looked new, the same with bathroom.... More

It was 3 minutes walk from both the kazimir and the main square of Krakow. The place is nothing special, guests are mixed, families and teenagers too. The bathrooms are quite clean. The breakfast doesn't worth to pay for, you may buy for yourself in any shop. With the staff we didn't have much contact. One night someone was singing... More
