Nice hostel but not very much fun while we were there anyway....very weird collection of people! You can't really fault the facilities; three free computers, kitchen, nice communal room (in which they let us sleep while we waited for our rooms!). Showers weren't great but they got the job done. Pricing is fair from what I remember and location is great.

When I'm in Krakow, I'm always staying in Hostel Yellow. Very well located, great staff, nice atmosphere, and low prices - what else to expect? Once I did a late check-out from the hostel, and it wasn't a problem for staff - many other hostels would probably charge me for that. All in all - definitely recomended!

The Hostel Yellow was decent, but could definitely use a face lift and an employee morale booster :)

We were greeted by a young woman who looked as though she wanted to be anywhere but there. She was curt and edged on rude. Needless to say the remaining staff was not much better.

The hostel was located on the outskirts of the city center, but still within walking distance. The building itself was dark and dirty and run-down.

No air conditioning meant trying to sleep with the windows open on a busy highway with 14 roommates snoring... so not very relaxing. The beds were very uncomforable.

They do have internet, but no rules about usage. So you may end up waiting hours for someone to get off the computer.

Breakfast was not so great, although the kitchen facilities were nice.
