Disclaimer: I will use quotation marks in this review, to express the hostel point of view. I arrived at 00:00 tired, on Friday, and just after getting to the hotel one of the guys at the reception tells me "we have a problem" (how we have a problem? I just arrived!). Although I booked a room for four people, there... More

The staff is the friendliest and most helpful I've come across. Really comfortable and clean common areas. Despite its small size it was very social, perhaps because all the rooms are in close quarters. Also the price is really great! I would recommend this place to anybody.

Loved my stay here, staff super helpful and accommodating. There's no real bar but that doesn't matter there's plenty of places to eat and drink. Shower is tiny. I stayed an extra night and they went out of their way to get me a bed at short notice. Common room is nice as is the kitchen. Walls are thin so... More

The hostel was exactly what we needed it to be for our trip. Within a short walk of both the main square and the Jewish quarter, with a selection of bars and restaurants around it. Very good value for money by booking far enough in advance. The rooms were good, though a couple of the bunk beds were a little... More

I travelled alone round Poland and booked this hostel. I had a really pleasant stay: the prices were good, the room as well. The common living-room and kitchen were actually quite big and beautifully decorated. The showers and toilets were clean and looked really new, which feels good in a youth hostel! The staff is really super friendly, they would... More

Even if this hostel would have been dirty, expensive, and loud (which it absolutely wasn't) I still would have given this hostel 5 stars because of the staff. I have never felt so welcomed, accommodated, and cared for in a hostel. I was personally showed to my 6-bed dorm, offered a welcome drink, and given valuable advice on what to... More

I loved Ars hostel and Krakow. I arrived early straight off a sleeper train and the guy on reception put breakfast out early for me, made me a coffee and told me all the best places to go. A really homely, cozy feel to the hostel with nice decoration, I met some really nice people in the communal lounge who... More
