What an absolute dump. I am sitting upright for the second night in a row due to cigarette smoke filling every crevice in this hostel. There is absolute no recourse or rules and everyone is smoking inside. I think of the website and of the fact that on Booking.com they advertised at 25zl, when I booked I paid 45zl which... More

This hostel is clean with a great friendly staff. The location is great right in the middle of oldtown quick access to everything you need. Pub crawl is super cheap. Had a good time staying there. Breakfast included but nothing wow

We arrived thinking we were going to stay in the hostel,we were then given difficult wrong directions. The apartment itself when we eventually got to it was ok problem with the tv but 24hr reception called me back and fixed it. There was a kettle but no tea bags. The apartment was clean and tidy with comfortable beds. There was... More

Originally my friend and I booked separate rooms, then in a desperate backpacking money saving plea we decided to call this hostel and ask if we could just have one room. Which they were very helpful with, not even a cancellation fee! We stayed in the apartment just down the road from the main hostel which was lovely, if you... More

This is a great hostel. The location is perfect if you want to party. All the clubs and bars are a stones throw away. If you do not wish to go out by yourself, the Flamingo does a great pub crawl. You are also two minutes away from the town square. There are plenty of places to eat around at... More

The location is the only good thing I personally found about this hostel. In the middle of the main square, surrounded by restaurants and night life. Couldn't have been in a better spot. Everything other then the location was terrible. We had a double room and it was tiny, couldn't have both of our bags open at the same time.... More

I booked and ensuite room months in advance and as I arrived there I was given a different one. I complained and the person at the desk just told me there was nothing he could do. After some fighting, he told me I would change rooms the next day, so in the next morning I went back to the reception.... More

It was a lot of fun. We were in Krakow for a couple of days and enjoyed the city and had a great time hanging out at the hostel. We were in a dorm style room, made some friends and had great fun during pub crawl. Dean, the guy who leads a bunch of drunk young adults around is really... More

Came to this hostel, wasn't easy to find. Room was okay but there were no sheets on the bed and seemed really dirty. Stayed in the room next to night club, loud which is understandable but people throwing up everywhere, one girl appeared seriously ill and thrown up all over the bathroom, appeared scared and was freaking out, seemed like...
