“Nice place to stay for vacation”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

Nice, clean and comfortable room, all you need for short vacation in town in good price. Friendly staff, good wi-fi connection (except floor 0 ;-)). Standard quality of breakfast, maybe not so variety, dining room is not comfortable for breakfast and has not enough seats.

The hostel is situated within short walking distance from the Market Square, which is the heart of Krakow. The staff of Good Bye Lenin Revolution was very helpful, giving advice on where to rent a bike, how to get the shopping center etc. and available at the reception desk 24 hours. The price is really good, as it also included the breakfast, which consisted of toast, jam, nutella, cereal, ham, cheese and hot drinks.
However we disliked paper thin walls, so we could hear every single noise from the other rooms. Our room was very clean, but it obviously lacked curtains and a mirror.

I stayed here at the beginning of March with my partner, we had our own room with a double bed, sofa, kitchen area and private bathroom, it felt more like a hotel room than a hostel, and for approx. £12 each per night its amazingly good value. You also get a free breakfast included which is a light buffet of breads, cheese, hams, cereals. There is also free tea and coffee all day and night.
It took us a little while to find the hostel, as it is not very clearly marked (we eventually found a little goodbye lenin sticker on the door buzzer!), the area appears to look a little run down but its all part of the charm! It was less than 10 min walk to the main square, there are cafes and a few shops nearby. The location is great! The staff were all very helpful, and we had no trouble sleeping, was very quiet at night. Would definitely stay there again.

First thing you'll notice is the quite hidden entry of the hostel, which in a way is quite comforting. Don't be weirded out, it looks strange how you get inside, but once in you will be warmly welcomed by the person at the reception. Who will explain to you where everything is and how things work. Also you will notice that everything is kept really clean. We had a great stay and would go back. Its super close to the city center and they offer tours for little money (auschwitz being one of them for 130 zlotys= which is like 40-50 $ and include the shuttle transport there and back, plus the tour through the 2 museums, expect to be out for 6-7 hours in total). Bus to the airport leaves nearby. 24 hours service at the reception. Breakfast included

Stayed here for a whole week (tuesday-tuesday) for our trip to Krakow. Good hostel, great staff and good breakfast. There was some school classes staying there when we were there that made a lot of noise, so that was a downer. The walls are quite thin, so you hear everything. Not a place to stay if you can't handle some noise. But overall it was a positive experience! Will recommend this hostel to all of my friends!

I stayed in the one bed room. The room was an average size and a single bed. The breakfast-included price is a bergen than other hostels around. The kitchen and the big living room are quite comfortable. It got a lift, so the people with a big suitcase can get to the room without hustle. One charm would be the location close enough to hear the trumpet from the cathedral. There is a laundry cafe nearby, so you can go there and do the laundry while you sip your coffee or tea.

Room Tip: It's just like an apartment building with rooms rented. My room was clean so I hope other rooms...
