I stayed here from the 2nd July to 6th July. The building shares a communal hallway which is a bit dark. The reception is on the 2nd floor. The staff were really nice and friendly and very helpful with our questions. The room is basic but for about £25 per night was great value. The wifi worked really well and... More

Stayed at the hostel for 3 nights with my friends. The room was spacious and nicely decorated. The view from our balcony was amazing. There was wifi in the common room. Not all the beds were very comfy, but mine was fine. The location was perfect! Staff was friendly. Great stay!

Good place for youth groups. Quite cheap, helpful staff, not far to the city centre. On the way to the centre there are many restaurants and places where you can eat cheap and delicious meals. You can meet Jewish history.

spacious rooms . we got room of 8 people divided to 2 rooms. there is free WiFi but the entrance is sort of hidden in a shared building entrance. this is downside means that you can be too loud in there. the 24h reception is handy if you are planning to come late. the location is really close to Kazimierz...

this is not a hotel, it is a hostel, dont get confused. the rooms are basic but clean. the hostel is not very welcoming as it has a rather dull shared entrance which you need to buzz to be allowed in to a dark cold corridor which leads to a staircase which is equally as cold and dark which leads...

What I liked the most about this hostel is our room. It was actually an apartment divided into 3 separate rooms, each with three beds so we had a lot of space. There was a little table with a couch and a balcony as well. Staff was friendly and the breakfast was better than expected. Love the location because Kazimierz... More

I chose Tara Hostel because I wanted to stay for one night in good location and I did'nt want or need much (no TV, radio, chance to boil water). The room was renovated, spacious, clean and colorful. It was simple to get there and the 30 minute walk from there to city is one of the best thing about the... More

Dorm rooms were very large and spacious with clean and adequate shower, toilet and kitchens. Hostel is 40min walk or quick taxi/tram ride from the central train and bus station. It is located very near the old town and castle and is an excellent base for sight seeing. The free breakfast served across the street is pretty poor.

We arrived from London to Krakow airport and then to the main train station. At first it looked complicated to find the hostel but once we were out on the street it was very easy. The hostel is located in a nice area between the Main Square, River Vistula and the Kazimierz. Public transport is on thr door steep too.... More
