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

Me and my 4 other friends booked a private room for 5 at blue hostel just a few weeks ago. When we arrived we already had in mind some of the bad reviews about service so when the manager was hostile we were not surprised.The room was average, but as i say our expectations were already set really low, we...

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

The staff was very rude and not very helpful. It seemed that when we wanted to inquire to stay an extra night, we were a burden to them... I was obviously pregnant at the time and they still had us on the very top floor which was 6 flights of long stairs up. It was fine, but, the hostel was... More

As most other reviewers on this page have observed, this hostel makes for a very unpleasant stay mainly because the staff are so damn rude. They really should not be in this business. Firstly the '24 hour' reception is unmanned, and you have to stand there and try the 4 different bells 10 times before the guy stomps downstairs to... More

Apart from being inexpensive the hostel is perfectly located beside the Old Town. The nearest bars and restaurants are only five minutes away. Blue Hostel has lovely staff that are helpful when in need of travel advice. I strongly recommend this hostel to anybody that is seeking to find accommodation in the perfect location at an affordable price. The only... More

Hostel is great. We stayed just one night and spent all time in city. When we returned, everything was good, lady was nice, bed clothes smelled fresh, WC and kitchen were clean. It is close to downtown and there is a market just around the corner. And is cheap. I would recommend this hostel to everyone.

I was staying 1 night in single room in ground floor. Room, corridors and shared bathroom were clean and very nice for a price I paid. Outside it's an old building, but inside it is refurbished and pretty nice. Room felt quite small ~2x4m, but had really high ceiling and was really warm for me :D had to open windows... More
