Not only are the staff very friendly, the breakfast included, and the prices cheap, this hostel is excellent in every way. The first time I stayed here was in the summer of 2014 and I had such a good experience, I decided to use it again in the spring of 2015, only this time was bumped up to one of... 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

Stayed here for 3 nights. The receptionists were extremely helpful (they even upgraded us free of charge due to a large group of students booking in, and thought we would prefer an apartment) Was clean, and central for everything including the Jewish quarter, the main square and only 20-30 mins from the airport. Great value for money and helpful staff.... More

Great value for money, went there for a one night stay, was very clean, staff very friendly and helpful. Beds slightly uncomfortable but hey, its a hostel after-all. Nice decor for rooms and hostel in general.

Third review and revisit in this hostel (within 1,5 years). This time my situation was a little bit odd/different. Went on a X-mas holiday (Wroclaw/Krakow) with my mom (83 years of age) but she is still pretty mobile without the extra gear. So i went for a room with 2 beds separate. Stayed in room 24 (solo i was in... More

Very clean, very colourful, lovely people working there (so nice and willing to give us direction of help or anything we wanted), the breakfast was simple but good, the rooms were small but sweet-looking with flower paintings on the wall. There was a play room with sofas and computers that were free to use and also free WiFi. For the... More
