“Student feeling”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

I stayed 4 nights for approx. 220PL zloty at this student hostel in Krakow which is 30-40 mins walk from the centre of old town. Taxi price from the hostel to the downtown was 22PL zloty. There was no wireless network. Two rooms shared one bathroom, which was clean enough, towels were not changed during my 4-nights stay. Biedronka supermarket (you can't buy alcohol there) is next to the hostel with reasonable prices. The hostel has it's own bar open till 11 pm. The staff don't speak english/german well.

Low cost hotel in students dormitory. Hotel rooms are seperated from dormitory. You can eat very cheap breakfast and lunch in students canteen. About 20 minutes to the Old town by tramp and walk. Hotel is located on the grand floor, dormitory is from the first floor to the top. In a building is a small pub for students. Near hotel you can find discount with good prices

For the price, you get an OK good deal. Two rooms are connected to one bathroom. The Hotel is not far from a bus stop (a 1 minute walk) and only a 10 minute walk away from the tram that zips you into downtown (a 10 minute tram ride). The Hotel was almost entirely full of students, but there were a couple families. The dinning hall on the first level of the hotel has delicious Polish food. Overall though, there are probably better places to stay closer to downtown with better rooms.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2009

I stayed in the Piast Hotel for about a month while in Krakow. I stayed in a double room by myself which was located on the first floor. The first floor has been recently been remodeled; while it is not anything special to write home about and while the walls are bleak, the rooms are very clean. The upper 7 floors have not been remodeled to my knowledge; however, I have been to multiple rooms on the upper floors and while they are not as new, they are still clean.

There is a bar downstairs, as well as chinese restaurant (pretty good, too), a Milk bar-esque cafeteria, a hair salon (solarium), bank, and ATM. Also, there are two major grocery stores within 5 minutes of the hotel. The Beidronka only takes cash and remember to bring extra change.

The staff at the hotel are some of the nicest people you will run into. They are extremely helpful and will do what they can to get any problems worked out for you. Even though it is a student hotel, anyone is welcomed there. And although many would think the combination of students and a bar would be a problem, there is 24 hour security so noise is never a problem. In fact, I saw many families staying there.

Piast is a good 30 minute walk from the center of Krakow. However, the walk is a good chance to explore some different restaurants, see the suburbs, and walk through some nice parks. I would highly recommend Piast.
