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

Stunning architecture. Frustrating that we only had two nights there....could have done more. Superb location. The reception staff are excellent! They go out of their way, the lady that checked us in could not do enough to settle us in and she had a great sense of humour (And I love their accents!) which made us a feel very welcome.... More

Firstly, this is NOT a hotel... It is just a converted block of flats. We arrived to find the main door not even locked. We had to climb to the 3rd floor to get to the "reception", where the staff were more interested in payment than welcoming us. The rooms themselves are dirty and only a few rooms at the... More

tarahostel, Owner at Tara Hostel Krakow, responded to this review

We are very sorry to read such a bad review. Still, we would like to make some comments. First of all, we have never claimed to be a hotel. What we offer are guest rooms. Secondly, the front door were unfortunately broken that day - now they are locked. What is more, to increase safety level in our hostel we... More
