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

I stayed here on a recommendation and it proved right. The hostel is based in a quiet street not far from the old square and the bus and train station. The room (a double) was clean and functional for a sightseeing holiday & the showers were great with hot water at all times . The breakfast was good value for... More

Great location just a few minute walk from the main square but on a quiet street. Rooms were clean. Each room has a shower and bathroom. Staff were friendly. Breakfast is included in the price. Selection of breads, cereal, tea, coffee. Great value for money.

The city hostel is located right in the city centre, in a nice area near the city's theatre, 5mins walk from the main square. The hostel was clean, our rooms were spacious - especially for a hostel - and, very important when it's freezing 10 degrees outside, very well heated. The staff was very helpful and patient, even when trying... More

We stayed here for 4 nights. Clean with everything you need for a short stay. Breakfast simple but great when on a budget! Only things that we would comment on is that we had no heating in our room and the walls are very thin so we could hear the neighbours! Sarah & Steph

This hostel is well located in Krakow and is a stones throw from the main square. I stayed in a 3 person room, which had a private en-suite. The place was clean and tidy and recommend this place to anyone who wants to stay in Krakow on a budget. As this is a hostel, you will get large groups staying,... More

I came here exhausted, with way too little sleep having a bit trouble to find the place (my bad). Upon arrival I learned something went wrong with my reservation through Expedia. I was supposed to get a 1 person room and instead got registered for a 11 person dorm. Quite shocking but the lady at the front desk was so... More
