We loved this hostel. The location was good at only fifteen minutes walk from the center. It was clean, spacious and really uniquely decorated. There was a good atmosphere and the staff were nice and helpful. There were children in this hostel, but this does not stop an atmosphere for fun if you are a young traveller looking for a... More

I stayed there for 1 night in a 10 bed room. And didn't really like it. To start with the advantages I must say that the staff were very friendly and helpful, the sheets and rooms were clean, the breakfast was good, and the price was cheap. Besides?? Too much noise coming from some guys who work in Krakow and... More

The hostel has few ok things but too many downsize. I stayed in a private ensuite double room where the bathroom was bigger than the room itself. The room had no wardrobe, only 1chair, a bedside table between the 2beds and a little desk. There was no space on the floor for the luggage which had to stay in the... More

There is a big room for the breakfast where you can chat with other people, whatch tv and surf on the internet. Oh, and it's very close to the main square... More

Very good hostel, clean, every room has its own bathroom. Breakfast was included in the price. Near the city centre, which is very important, you can go almost everywhere on foot. The staff was very helpful.
