The private apartment was very clean and the kitchen was extremely well equipped. The washing machine was a bonus and the bath was a luxury. A nice quiet patio was under utilised by me but is a nice tranquil setting. Only comment would be the bed wasn't comfortable (too hard) and the air-con didn't seem to work. Staff were knowledgable...

Homely, quiet, friendly, great location and brilliant breakfasts make this place an absolute gem. Its surrounded by great local restaurants you wouldnt find in the center so make sure you take notice of their recommendations. Plus supermarkets and bakeries are just up the road so if you fancy making a picnic its really handy too. The staff were so friendly... More

A friend and I stayed here for three nights in July and loved it. It is located on a quiet street in the Kazimierz district which is an area which is experiencing alot of development. Some great restaurants were located in a 5-10 min walk from the hotel. The staff is very helpful and accomdating and gave us extra blankets... More

I've been five times to Krakow, I've stayed in different places and this is the one I like the most so far. It's not a luxury place and it functions both as hostel and hotel but I was really satisfied. First of all, the members of the staff are very polite, friendly and helpful. The place, its common areas (there... More

Kraków is a city I've visited often and part of the charm is where one stays. I'm not a person of means so a well kept hostel suits me. Secret Garden is a clean, airy, hostel that suits students along with more mature travelers. It's located about 22 minutes walk from town center. It's near the river, the castle, and... More

Our apartment was very comfortable, and the free WiFi was a bonus. Fully equipped with a kitchen, washing machine, etc. and an outdoor garden area. Great tram links with the rest of the city, and just minutes from the Jewish quarter.

Room was clean, reception staff very helpful and breakfast was lovely. Location excellent being ten minutes from the main train stationby foot. €18 if you prebook airport drive to Krakow airport. Beds were average, they were not particularly comfortable. Shared bathroom amenities were very clean, however we could hear absolutely everything of our neighbours. At about 10pm on our first...

The apartment I stayed in was quiet, spacious and excellent value. It was located in a separate building. I later stayed in a room with shared bathroom which was of a much lower standard - a small room and bed with few facilities. Would not stay in one of these rooms again at this place. Definitely go for an apartment.

Very cheap hostel located roughly 20 minutes by taxi from the airport and 20 minutes by foot from the main square. Wawel Castle is only a 10 minute walk away. Both the room and the shared bathroom facilities were clean, although the walls are rather thin and therefore we could hear everyone in the rooms either side of ours very... More

We chose this hostel after reading the great reviews from TripAdvisor. We booked a room with shower/toilet. However, a few days before our arrival, the hostel called us to warn us that we would have to stay in room with shared showers/toilets. And they didn't agree to lower the price we paid! Anyway, after a few nights at the hostel,... More
