We stayed at hostel Folklore because hostel bookers had over booked our original choice and Folklore was booked by that hostel (which was nice that we didn't have to look for a new place to stay). We had a private twin room which was clean but would have preferred a mirror and a towel that didn't feel like sandpaper over...

We stayed at this hostel 2 nights in the room 11 with the own bathroom. The building is very old and the ceilings are high, there was also an old furnace in the room with beautiful tiles, I liked it so much! The room and hostel in general are simple, but clean. There is a kitchen, so we could make...

Cheap. Safe. Clean. Great location right between the Old Town and trendy Kazimierz. Right near Przystanek Pierogarnia (a great pierogi place) and the kielbasa van. The girls working there were very nice and helpful, allowing us to use their printer and do laundry. It has its quirks as well - we had some trouble getting our room key to work...

The reception is very helpful (thank you for the welcoming) and the place very clean. However, the rooms are without souls, the facade is decrepit, the doors creak loudly, there are no shutters on the windows and there is a lot of traffic on the street. The bathroom is shared (but new and clean). This lack many little things that...

We really enjoyed our stay at Hostel Wielopole aCesar. The location is within walking distance of the train station as well as the Old Town sites. The room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. We had three wonderful nights of sleep during our stay. Also, the staff was very friendly and helpful. On our last night, they ordered us a cab...

The stuff of aCesar rescued our holidays. We booked a room for four persons for three nights on Hostelbookers.com, but in fact aCesar is not working together with hostelbookers, so they didn't recieved our reservation. However, they somehow managed to let us sleep there for two nights and also booked a room in another hostel for us for the last...

I stayed in this hostel once, and all I can say is that I slept really well. Because it was winter, the hostel was almost totally empty, so I was completely alone in 5-bed room. The room was spacious and clean, and the bed was comfortable. Bathrooms were ok as well. There were also friendly people at the reception. And...

I highly recommend staying here! I was greeted by English speaking staff and only continued to be impressed from there. Prices are very fair. Nice atmosphere, I had a great time hanging out with the other visitors and the staff that night. The wifi was a bit slow and the signal was a bit weak in my room but that...
