Only for a night, it was a short walk from the train station, close to the old town and castle. The showers could do with better lighting and toilets with being cleaned more often though. There is a kitchen (was quite empty though) and a fridge to use. Plenty of balconies too. With a bit of luck you can catch... More

Despite the location being ok and having no issues with the staff, I wouldn't stay here again. The bathroom and room we stayed in could do with a PROPER clean. You are not kidding anyone by just sticking a bunch of air fresheners in there. It still smelled bad and I don't think the sheets were fresh.

I think that fact tells everything... There was a man in the room (our fault: we did not lock the door of the room, because we were a whole group and locked the entire floor door to the stairs and lift) while the girls slept and took all the money until one of the girls woke up. The receptionist and... More

Pros: Really good location, good WiFi and breakfast a bit better than "hostel standard", nice and polite staff. Cons: Not wow clean, Cold rooms (heating wasn't working or was off), didn't have hot water on day 2, reception is not manned 24h. Overall a nice budget, simple hostel. Good because of the location and if you are not too concerned... More

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
