Had an awesome time. Went on the pub crawl every night. Cheap beer at the hostel bar. Staff were amazing. Bathrooms clean. Beds were nothing special (bunks) but that is hostel living. Location cannot be beat, right next to the main square. Any tours you may wish to go on can be organized at the front desk. Easy. Would definitely... More

Great stay with friendly staff, who will show you around the local bars and nightclubs. The staff will stay with you and you feel safe with them. There is plenty of city tours you can book with the hostel like Auschwitz and Salt mines. Great location just off the main square. I will be back again with a few friends... More

Guys who are working in this hostel are really amazing. They are trying to create the best home atmosphere where you have a lot of friends and everyone knows each other. For this only, you always want to come back here because at this place you have found a lot of new friends. All minuses are beaten with this hospitality.

The staff was a great help in setting the tone for this party hostel. Alicja was very helpful and sweet. She gave me some good tips on where to go and eat. I would highly recommend this place if you are in party mode. Also location is in the middle of the action. Bring ear plugs if you are a... More

After reading really good reviews about this hostel, me nad m husband selected this as the hostel to be in Krakow. We reached pretty ahead of the usual check-in time and the hostel staff did treat us very well. They helped us giving a small tour of the hostel, kept our luggage, showed us the common bathrooms to freshen us... More

In the middle of the city centre which is very nice. However the hostel was not very clean (especially in the late morning). Also the people did not know which actitivities and tour operators are recommended in the surroundings. Moreover the hostel was extremely hot! You could not dry yourself after a shower as the cabine was very humid. Breakfast... More
