“BED BUGS”
Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

We had bed bugs!!! I was shaken in the middle of the night from a door slamming and looked by my head and saw 3 crawling things so i smushed them as i tried to figure out what they were...blood smeared everywhere. The next day we were broken out in bites on our entire bodies...they kept surfacing for a week. We also found smushed bed bugs on the walls by the computers once we identified them as bed bugs. So freaky. Besides that the hostel was perfect but no way would i stay there again :(

We're sorry that something like this happened to you in our hostel. Immediately after your check out we called professional team that has disinfectioned room and all the things in the room. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to detect bugs and usually you notice them when there are many of them and they are big. Bed bugs like wood and can also live in a clean room. Often touristrs bring them in baggage.

A very cozy hostal, with free coffee and tea, 2 pc's with internet. The people at the reception was very friendly, hostal is close to the shoppingcenter and downtown,there is a foodstore next door so you can by your breakfast there, for me was great since I like just yoghurt ,,,remember you need earplugs because you can hear when people goes outside your bedroom at night :-) otherwise you save a lot of money at this place.

Hostel Globart looks a bit rough on the outside, but it is great on the inside. Clean, lovely breakfast, helpful staff, great location - only complaint is that it can be noisy and they need to keep other guests under control more to stop spoiling it for others.

Room Tip: small hostel so all rooms lovely.

A very clean comfortable and spacious hostel. Excellent staff who helped me out with a bike problem.
Be careful with safety though. I had some bits stolen from my bike’s saddle bag. Admittedly this was my fault as I left the bag on the bike in the blocks entry area which is outside the hostel. So the hostel is not to blame and security inside the hostel is fine.
Highly recommended.

A nice and friendly place in Kraków, with good localization and well communicated with the rest od the city. Staff is very polite and helpful, rooms are clean, breakfast is ok. It's a nice place for backpackers who want to stay in the city for a good value.

I stayed in this hostel two times. First of all, it has a great location, it's quite cheap, and the staff is friendly. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and comortable. The only thing that perhaps irritated me a bit was the fact that even though the door was closed, I could hear conversations from the reception. But that wasn't really that bad. Summing up, everything was ok in this hostel, but there was also something exceptional - the view from the windows of one room, on the clock tower, which at dawn looks amazing. I recommend this hostel especially to people who need peace and quiet as well as comfort.

I was going to stay in Katowice but nobody gave a room for one night in Katowice. Then i went to Krakow and saw the Globart Hostel and i asked them if it s possible for me to stay there one night without booking and the answer was positive. It s clean and service is really good. Staff is always smiling. There is free tea and coffee.
