The Secret Garden Hostel was recommended to us by a member of our family who had stayed there before. We arrived at night having never been to Kraków before. We arrived at the hostel and the staff was polite, friendly and very helpful. We were directed to the apartment on Josefa street... Eventually we found it and when we entered... More

Like many other people I had booked a single room with shared bathroom, for 4 nights, £53. Reasonable enough, on arrival I'm told a party of students will be arriving, so they thought I might enjoy a private apartment at no extra charge, and enjoy it I did, ensuite bathroom, small kitchen complete with tea coffee kettle pots pans washing...

I was pleasantly surprised by the Secret Garden Hostel since the quality of the services provided for the budget price are exquisite. It's a very clean place, decorated in good taste, quiet during the night in a central but remote tranquil street in the old Jewish quarter Kazimierz from where one can walk through the beautiful neighborhood or over the...

I enjoyed my time at the Secret Garden hostel. It is only 15 minutes away from the main center of Krakow by foot. Yet far enough away from the noise to get a good nights sleep. The staff were extremely helpful in pointing out different attractions Krakow had to offer. Breakfast and towels were included with renting the room. Internet... More

A neat and tidy hotel on a quiet street not very far from the historical city centre of Krakow, Secret Garden indeed has lot of surprises in store. Go for a room at the rear side of the building and you get a view of a lawn and a garden. That justifies the name! The rooms, just about enough in... More

We booked a private room and our room was actually in another building, which gave us lots of privacy, and the room also included a small kitchen, with all necessary equippaments. The included breakfast is good, with everything you need. It is not really central, but def within walking distance. It is located in the Jewish Quarter, full of history!... More
