I took my teenage sister here for a small historic/educational trip, so as you can imagine, travelling to a hostel as 2 young alone females was quite daunting, but when we arrived we were really pleasantly surprised. We had our own room and bathroom facilities, unlike other hostels where you would normally share. The room had everything you needed as...

The hostel is about 30min walk from the centre of Krakow, but a tram can be taken to the centre. The rooms were ok, however our room was next to the kitchen and so was fairly noisy. The breakfast was a simple hostel (cereal, bread, spreads), while the internet connection was awful and slow.

This hotel offered my mother and I an amazing stay in krakow! The service is very good, receptionists very helpful, they made sure to give us tips about restaurants and transport and also called many times to help us book a ski trip in Zakopane. Rooms cosy and clean, private bathrooms Free breakfast every morning with a lot of variety...

It is a short tram ride on the number 4 tram heading towards Kamilicka. It is the old gestapo head quarters and a miniature museum downstairs showing the cells where prisoners were kept. Their names still appear on the wall...free on tuesdays so i recommend it. The Hostel itself is clean and tidy, at 8 pounds per night each we...

It wasn't expensive at all when we booked it so a good choice in terms of walking distance from the city centre (ca. 20minutes). The place is fine, clean, simple and if you don't plan to spend lots of time in the room - it's OK. Breakfast included - nothing major but decent. So if you're not fussy about your...

We had a good stay at the Freedom Hostel. It was easy enough to find and the staff were always very friendly and helpful. The room was quiet and had a nice bathroom with a good shower. The only thing letting this place down was the breakfast. Would definitely stay here again.

This hostel is located very centrally in Krakow - the main town square is a 10-15 minute walk away and the trams go from just across the road. The hostel is clean with ensuite rooms and comfortable beds. WiFi worked well in the room, bedsheets and towels provided. The building was also previously used as a Gestapo headquarters and there...

Stayed here while on a long weekend away in the freezing cold weather of early January. Couldn't fault a thing, cleans rooms, warm showers, and a place to rest our heads; what more could you possible want for such a little price. Great little hostel.

Hostel is located 10-15 min walk to main town square. Just near hostel is beautiful park with fountain where we enjoyed to spend time. Also it is located in same buliding as Muzeum Historyczne Miasta Krakowa in which you can enter directly from hostel. This museum has free entrance Tuesdays. Hostel itself is nothing special. Furniture old, bathroom ok. Overall...
