I had a very nice stay here during a short budget business trip. The single rooms with shared toilet have their own private shower and sink and are very comfortable. The WiFi connection was excellent, enough to Skype and stream if you wanted to. The location cannot really be beaten - right in the old town and one of the... More

Lovely little hostel. Not very busy when we went but I suppose it is January! Double room with shower reasonably priced, clean and comfortable. Staff friendly and a very convenient location for the station and old town. Would recommend. Thanks!

Located in the heart of old town Krakow, this is an easy 5-6 min walk from main train/bus station. Accommodations are spartan but adequate. The rooms are spartan and some have shared toilets. I would advise this hostel to those of us who consider it a place to sleep. We relax/live out life elsewhere. The staff was always very friendly,... More

It is our 2nd time to use this hostel, main reason - it is right in the Old Town! The location is perfect, only 2, 3 mins walk to the main square (Rynek), however you need to bring your ear plugs with you because it is very noisy. A lot of cars passing by even in the early hour of... More

The location could not be better. The hostel is comfortable, but basic. Rooms are not ensuite, most have showers etc, but toilets are found in the corridors. Breakfasts are good. We ordered packed lunches which were very good value. This was my second visit and I would use them again. The staff were very helpful.

The hostel is very central and really easy to find! It is just a 10 minute walk from the main station. the easiest way to get it to is to leave the station front entrance, go down through the large subway and emerge in the park. Go to the top right exit of the park and take a left just... More

My friend and I stayed in this hostel just before Christmas. It was in an ideal location and a safe area with plenty of cheap restaurants within walking distance. Hostel was lovely and clean with comfortable beds and helpful staff. Only downside was the long walk up the stairs to the bedroom but I would highly recommend this hostel.

The best location is difficult to find. Not far from the train and bus station, shopping center and old town. There is a lounge, microwave, shared refrigerator, free instant coffee and tea. Washbasin and toilet in the room, shower on the floor (one for 3 rooms, so it's not a problem). They didn't clean the rooms even once (we stayed... More

the location was great, half way between the train station and main square. The room was cool and spacious, with a clean and large bathroom. The only disappointment was breakfast, however it was included in the already bargain nightly price, so we shouldn't complain.
