Found this place at short notice, and it is in a handy position and well priced. Considering the budget, cannot really complain although the rooms can be of variable quality - first time, we had a smallish room but the second (after Zakopane trip) we had a lovely, spacious attic room. Perfectly functional, decent service and worthy of its stout... More

Stayed here for three nights in a double room Number 355 with bathroom. Quiet, lovely bathroom, and bedroom. Good continental breakfast and coffee. Perfect position near the river and twenty minutes to the Old Town. .

To get to the hostel from the central train station, you need to walk through the shopping centre following the signs for the Old Town. Once out of the building you will see a tram stop ahead of you (above an underpass). Take number 10 to Plac Wolnica and you will get off at the end of the street with... More

We stayed in a double room, which was simple, but cozy and clean. For 4 rooms there were 3 bathrooms, which is more than enough. The breakfast was ok with a wide range of options. It is a little far from the city center, but not too far and you can use the tram too. I can recommend this hostel... More

The best place we have stayed out of all the hotels in Europe. Friendly, helpful staff that were very accommodating for everything we asked (needing an early breakfast, calling taxi and even printing boarding passes), simple but pleasant breakfast and the rooms are beautiful but simple. The bathrooms are shared but there are heaps and they are all spotlessly cleaned.... More

My friend and I stayed for three nights. Our room was studio sized, with our own kitchen. The accommodation was very clean and spacious, although the towels and sheets could do with replacing as there were several holes in each. Also be aware that if you book this room, hot water is limited. Location is good, as our meeting points... More

I've stayed here twice now, and I'm looking forward to my next visit. I used the airport pickup service (I think the train may be functioning now) and while my flight was hours late, someone was there to pick me up. Quiet, clean, and peaceful. I hoped to stay again this summer, but there were no rooms!

Visited here with 2 friends in October! Lovely little hostel, all the rooms were themed after herbs and flowers! I was on the herb corridor in the thyme room! Basic rooms but very clean and had its own heating so nice and warm, some rooms have shared bathrooms but I chose to have my own! Quiet at night! Close to... More

This is advertised as a hostel but it is much more than that. Rooms are lovely, if beds are a bit low down. Everywhere is beautifully clean and the dining room where you get your breakfast is open the whole time. Tea and coffee for free is available round the clock. Don't take your hair dryer. In rooms where they... More

Myself and 2 friends stayed here for 3 nights for a short break. What can I say AMAZING. The rooms were so hip and funky!! Really loved the themes. We had a double and a twin room both lovely and clean with great decor. Sharing a bathroom was never a problem rarely bumped into other guests. The shared lounge was... More
