“Very nice!”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

the location is ok for visiting Krakow: a 15 minutes walk to the Old Town Market and a 5 minutes walk to the Castle, and there are a lot of nice places to eat near by. The hostel has a parking lot, we paid 25 pln/day. The rooms are ok, very clean, nice furniture, the heating is working very well. There is a common kitchen on every floor which is very well equiped.

This hostel was very nice. It is a little hidden with all the other buildings, but we eventually found it. There were also small convenient stores near by, so that helped us get water and small snacks, which was nice. The weird thing was that this hostel is built up rather than wide. So it was hard to drag all our big luggage with us (5 with us at this time so had one big bag as well as a few own personal bags). At the check in, the people were very nice. I give their service 5 stars. They helped us with the bags, gave us great directions, and just very nice to foreigners.

Room:
We got two rooms because they were sold out of rooms meant for 5 or more. They both had 3 beds in it, so used the last for random things and luggage. They rooms were a little small. There was also a tv in the rooms, but don't understand Polish....so no use! There were bunk beds in both rooms. Not a lot of space to walk. But the rooms were clean and the beds
comfortable.

Location:
The hostel is close to old market square, which has lots of interesting things to do! We walked there so it was very close. And the other main reason we were there was for Auschwitz, which is in a different city and an hour away. We took a personal taxi guy we met- again, great service! Go Poles!

Bathroom:
Different conception at the hostel. It's a community bath, but a single one. There were two or three on each floor so we had to wait since it was a one person bathroom. But, they kept it clean...even between peoples showers- which was very nice! They also made sure we had hot water and soap and all the works.

Other amenities:
There was not free breakfast or free wifi here. Nor was there a common room at this hostel, but we still very much enjoyed the stay due to their warm welcome.

I would stay here again.

Stayed here for 4 nights, found the place to be basic but clean and the shared facilities were kept in good order. Quite noisy from the street outside so some ear plugs is a must. Only 10 minutes walk to the main square so the local is handy and also a supermarket next door which is open till 10pm for water/snacks. All in all good value for money.

Our stay in this hostel was very good, the staff are nice & friendly, there is a nice kitchen with fridge etc, if you cant afford to eat out while you are staying, the hostel is not to far from the city centre or the Vistula River, shops just round the corner,very clean & hygenic, would go back again.

Room Tip: we had a twin room, so we did not share with anyone else, we had room number 9, it was right next to...

We stayed at the Moon Hostel (2 Senatorska) on our one night in Krakow on our way to Zakopane. If you arrive at night, we'd suggest that you take a cab, as the street is slightly dark and might be tough to find when arriving by bus.
The room was clean and nice. Nothing extravagant, but you get value for money.
It is missing however little details such as a mirror and tissues for example, but of course, this should not be a deal breaker. Staff is helpful.
It's perhaps not the most "happening" hostel in town, but I bet it's one of the cheapest!
Quite close to the main square and a short walk from the river.
We would definitely come back for a short stay.

Room Tip: Take a cab there if travelling at night.
