I stayed here with 4 friends in April, and whilst the trip was lovely, the hostel was a bed and thats it. No spirit or hostel culture, and even a free breakfast doing little to help. The very mixed crown of cheap backpackers and strangely old individuals living there was a bit wierd.

The rooms had three floor beds, so in the third floor is pretty scary, and the beds shake! The mattress was horrible too! To go to the bathroom you needed to pass on the common room, which I did not like! Has a good location but the staff is not kind.

Stayed here with some friends for my stag do and to be honest I wish we'd picked somewhere else. Barely fit for purpose, rooms were dark and dingy and the entrance hall and courtyard smelt like a sewer. The reception is also cramped. Although we purely used this place as somewhere to pretty much pass out each night I wish... More

If you want to try a real hostel feeling, let's book here. The hostel is located in the inner city. It is close to every spectacle. It is clean, and calm. I recommend it to everyone who wants to spend a few night in Krakow.

This hostel is great if you are looking for a cheap place to stay right in the city centre of Krakow. It's quite basic don't go there thinking you'll be wowed if you just want a bed to sleep in this place will do. The staff were friendly and very helpful. I'd go back again as this place is perfect...

This hostel is really ugly, the rooms are narrow and overcrowded: I had never seen in my life a three levels bunk bed, nine people in less than 10mq, like a concentration camp! The toilets are OK but you have to be really lucky to find warm water taking a shower. The common room is wide but full of creepy... More

Cheap hostel located in an old tenement near the center. Terms do not impress, but with this location and for that price, it is a good option for a short stay. Nice service, very friendly. I was check in at 2 a.m, without any problems. Good opportunity for a solo vacation.
