“Great Staff”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Great location. Really friendly and helpful staff (especially when I picked up the wrong luggage from the airport, they contacted the airport for me and helped me track down the person who had mine). Nice clean rooms, good communal areas and an all-round good hostel.

The location is ideal, just on the edge of Old Town. All the reception staff were very welcoming and helpful. The breakfast included is cereal, ham, cheese etc. - a really good buffet. We had a twin room in the back of the building, which overlooks a quiet courtyard. (The dorms are in the front, I don't know what they are like). All the bathrooms are shared, but they were clean and there seemed to be enough showers and toilets. There is a small lounge and kitchen in the back, a much bigger lounge and kitchen/dining room in the front - you can use both. Security was good, with a buzzer for the front door, and another locked door into our section. I would definitely recommend this hostel.

Room Tip: If you can afford a private room in the back it will be quieter.

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!
