This is the cheapest hostel that I've ever come across only 5 euro a night!!!! This means that you can stay the night for the price of a pint of beer in my native Ireland. The hostel is unreal value. The hostel is decent especially for the price. The rooms and showers are standard enough but clean. The cooking facilities... More

I went to this hostel with my class and it was okey, the beds aren't so comfortable but that's just matter of taste. Bathroom is available in every room which is a big plus. Breakfast served every morning, not the best but edible. The hotel is located centrally. I could recommend this for school classes or a big group of... More

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
