I arrived very flustered and Olga and Paulina helped me with my reservation. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The accommodation was above average and I loved my stay in Kraków. I would recommend Kraków is an amazing city and to stay in the centre with such friendly staff was just perfect.

If all you want is a bed to sleep on then Cracow Hostel is a good find. Affordable and central to the Kraków old town which is really great. The hostel staff are also really helpful and accommodating and it has a very homely feel. Unfortunately for us, we had to share the top floor of the hostel with a... More

In fact they're AMAZING. Cracow hostel's right on the main square of the Rynek Glowny and you can actually look out the... More

Stayed at this hostel for a few nights and really really enjoyed it. The hostel is warm, comfortable, clean and has everything you need from a hostel. The location is absolutely breathtaking, especially from the top floor common room window, the view of the Main Square, is one of the best you will get! The staff are fantastic, Monica and... More

Truly surpassed all expectation! With the hostel being relatively cheap and situated on the square, it's safe to to say I was rather skeptical as to what would be the catch... I'm delighted to say no 'catch' existed and instead found the hostel very comfortable indeed! On one of the nights, as a group we decided to have a few... More

Visited Krakow with a group of friends, so we book ahead the beds and it was cheaper. Clean friendly and quite. The breakfast was great with a lot of options. Good price/quality option in a very well located hostel in the City centre. There was two bathrooms for my floor that were very clean and had everything in good condition.... More

The reception is open 24/7 and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Location can´t be any better and room with 6 beds are facing the main square with great views. Breakfast is very complete, one of the best i´ve ever had in a hostel.

Perfect place for a few days. Bedrooms were clean with lockers, staff were very helpful and there was a kitchen available for hot drinks. Great place to stay around New Year´s! It´s also located in the main square which makes things really handy

So this hostel is in a great location. The rooms are great, the breakfast is great, and it's just really enjoyable to stay here. The only thing I did not like about this hostel was the bad wifi connection. We had a lot of people in our group so many people were using it at once. I would just suggest... More
