This is a very central hostel, perfect to go visit the city and close to all the restaurants, pubs and clubs. It has a very nice and warm atmopshere with a pub downstairs so you can socialize with other visitors. :)

Hostel is located in the center but on a very quiet street which makes you sleep very good. The center of Krakow is really crowded and busy so I was worried about the loudness during the night.
Also, the beds are basic but with very thick and comfortable mattresses.
Very nice free breakfast and knowledgable smiling staff.
I've stayed in a 6 bed dorm with private bathroom which was very spacious.
There are lots of great restaurants around the building as well.

Clean, spacious rooms with private lockers (for free), very thick mattrasses (I don't remember when last time I slept so well at the hostel). We have stayed in a 12 bed dorm and we were nicely sourprised when we saw the room - it was huge (made of two big rooms, new and clean with private bathroom. That was fantastic especially when it comes to the price which was less than 10 euros with tasty breakfast included!
Big plus for the staff which helped us with everything including all the tours that we wanted to take. They have recommended a great coffe place with best cupcakes!
Will be back for sure next summer

Room Tip: If you are looking for a cheap stay in a quiet street at the center of Krakow - 12 bed dorm is perfe...

We have chosen this hostel due to a low price, good location and nice pictures while we weren't really sure what to expect since it's a new place and there weren't much information about it online.
It turned out to be a great place in the end - very nice and helpful staff, tasty breakfast and especially: huge, clean, comfy and cheap rooms! Our private double exclusive room was located on the top floor (there is a new elevator so it's not a problem). Room was even bigger than in a good hotel. The only thing that was missing was a TV (if you like to use it while traveling...)
I can defintely recommend this place to everyone who is looking for a cheap private room in the center of Krakow.

Room Tip: We slept on the top floor in a private double exclusive room
