I’ve stayed at Amber Hostel a number of times, and I would recommend it to anyone. It’s clean, inexpensive, located across the street from the Main Square – what more can you ask for? If you’re planning a trip to Cracow, and want to keep your expenses low, yet want to make sure you are staying at a clean place... More

I have stayed at the Amber Hostel twice in the past two years. The service was accommodating, the room was comfortable and both the room and bathroom were habitable. I'm a minimalist, so I don't ask for much. If the occasion arises, and I'm sure it will again, I would book another stay at the Amber.

There are much better places to stay. This place is very very boring. They have made no effort to make this place welcoming or social. This place is also basically underground which adds to the dullness The wifi is free and has been working ok for me. The location is close to the centre

Close to the old town and a short walk from the main train station. Hostel Amber is a good reliable hostel, with basic but clean rooms and friendly staff. Breakfast is available at the café in the YMCA across the road.

Great hotel....fabulous service....terrific breakfast! Magda was our favorite desk clerk during our recent trip to Europe. We'd stay at Amber for sure the next time we're in Krakow.

Location is superb to the main market square and the main train station. It is run by very helpful staff who is willing to meet your needs. The accommodation is clean. They do not tolerate noise in the hostel after 10 pm which is good. However, the down side is the single and double rooms are near to the road... More
