“Amazing!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

After staying in 4* hotels our budget was tight so we opted for a hostel. What can I say the hostel is nice than most the hotels its nicely decorated, clean and the staff couldn't be more helpful. The room we have is a good size the bedding is good quality. Wifi Is provided free of charge there are coffee and tea making facilities in the kitchen. On arrival you get given a map and leaflets about the area along with information on the best things to do in krakow where's beat to eat and drink etc. The bathroom is beautiful it's got a fancy shower much better than what you would usually get. I would definitely come back to krakow and stay here it's got everything we require. :)

The best hostel/B&B I have stayed at by far. Location is approx 5 mins walk from main train station - conveniently located to all attractions. We walked everywhere. The rooms & bathrooms were clean and organized. We were even provided with locked cabinets (we paid deposit, but we get it back at check-out) The owner gave us all the information we needed - where to eat, what to see... he really knows the best of Krakow!

The shower is brand new (rainfall shower + massage) and the bedding is great quality. Breakfast, coffee and tea is provided as well. What more can we ask for? We will definitely come back to this hostel!

The hostel is in awesome location, is in the city center, so you dont need to use public transport for most of the cities attractions. The staff is amazing and the hostel is super clean. The Bathrooms are all new and with design. I was impress how a hostel can have such bathrooms, much better than some hotels that you will pay more. Another thing really nice is the WiFi completely free. The best hostel for sure in krakow, i will be back one day.
