Ars hostel is perfect for a cheaper stay in Krakow but also not far from the main square, about a 10 min walk away.
The staff were great and helped us organize everything, with a great free breakfast (basic but nice).
The wi fi was fast and reliable. Great hostel for young travelers too with a comfy common room and plenty of atmosphere!

The staff were amazing, the hostel wasn't very full when we were staying there so they treated us as if we were staying in a B&B! They gave us breakfast at whatever time we woke up and helped us plan out our trip. Helped us figure out bus/tram timetables and which attractions to go see.

I loved my stay in this hostel. We stayed in a dormitory that was spacious enough to not feel crowded. It is a ssmall hostel that has a homely feel, and we even spent one of our quieter evenings sitting in the living room socialising with other people in the hostel. The kitchen was big enough to cook a meal/make a cup of tea...and the hostel was in a good location, not too far from anything.

Good location, just a minute walk from Wawel and very close to Old Town. Good value for money. Very friendly stuff. There were some problems with bigger group coming to the same room I was located in, so I was offered a solo room for the same price. Nice common room with internet, guidebooks and a place to socialize. Free breakfeast included (bread, cheese, joghurt, meat, tea/coffee).
I plan to stay there again in December.

This was a lovely hostel - the owners were welcoming and helpful, and the hostel itself was clean and comfortable. The location is great - ten minutes walk to the main square and 5 from Wawel Castle. The breakfast was good, and included brewed coffee!
