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.

Good and helpful staff, perfect and diverse breakfast included. I was surprised by the rooms, the seperate shared restroom and our own bathroom with a big comfortable shower. The rooms are very good and spacious and very close to the big square! (thumbs up!)

The hostel was very good, the staff were excellent! One of the receptionists was lovely, she was so helpful and gave us advice for best places to eat and to go clubbing which was fantastic. The staff are at the desk 24hrs so let us in after our night out which was great (although we felt a bit guilty!). It... More

I stayed in a 5 bed dorm with an ensuite. The room was large and windowless, with lockers (you need your own padlock). The bathroom was clean but we were only supplied with one roll of toilet paper. You have to leave your key at reception every time you leave, which can be inconvenient when the staff are dealing with... More
