Really lovely rooms but quite far from Krakow town centre. Aga was extremely helpful. Breakfast is not included but there are local shops where you can pick up what you need. Only downside was that is was more B&B than hostel and sometimes I felt bad if we were coming in late etc

All I wanted was an overnight between journeys, and this was just the job. Hostels are not B&B so you always have to sort your own food. There is a good bakery and medium supermarket about 10 minutes walk; make yourself a brew and you are sorted. Make sure you have adress and contact details; Krakow taxi drivers have never... More

I love this hostel. Aga (the owner) was really friendly and helpful with any of our queries regarding the city or Poland in general. Pros: Quiet place. No late night partying to wake me up from my slumber. Friendly host. Clean rooms (and bathroom). Good kitchen facilities. Cons: The location is a little awkward. There is a tram stop about... More

We had an enjoyable 2 night-stay at this lovely hostel. Aga, the owner, was very friendly and helpful (and had answered promptly all my numerous email queries before we got there). I chose this hostel because it was within walking distance (25 mins via the river walk, but we are good walkers) of the historical centre and because we were... More

We only stayed here for 2 nights on our trip around Europe in 2011 but it was by far our favourite hostel of the whole trip. The lady who owns/runs it was warm, friendly and extremely helpful. The breakfast was amazing and we even got a doggy bag to take away with us on our very early morning leaving the... More

One could not ask for a better hostel. It is conveniently located, clean and cozy, and best of all, has a caring and extremely knowledgeable hostess, Aga, who is an expert about "all things Krakow." Loved my visit and will never stay anywhere else in Krakow if rooms are available.

Spent three nights in this great wee place and I don't think we could have asked for more. Aga was as helpful as anything and from the minute we set through the door couldn't do enough for us. From helping us plan all our trips, checking the weather and tram times I don't think it could have been much better.... More

spent four nights in this wonderful hostel. Aga is a lovely host and immediately makes you feel at home. It is just far enough away from the city centre to give the sense of a peaceful retreat but within walking distance of all there is to see. would highly recommend a stay here, Thanks Aga

Delightful, knowledgeable and helpful hostess with immaculate conveniently located hostel. Aga may well be the font of all Krakow knowledge! Booked our Auschwitz trip with her and used her guidance to explore this incredible city. Enjoyed the generous breakfast and interesting conversation with the other guests and Aga of a morning. We moved on to stay in another part of... More

We recently stayed during the Easter break in April with Aga. As we were travelling with our eight year old daughter we felt it was important to be out of the main city centre area to ensure a decent nights sleep. We stayed 4nights in total. The hostel is more like a B&B, the breakfast consisted of cereal, bread, meats... More
