“Okay for a short stay”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

I stayed in a dorm room, and it was SUPER dark and dingy--not at all like the pictures. The beds were terribly creaky, and the walls were pretty thin. There's constant cigarette smoke in the courtyard, which leaks into the common area. But I suppose that's Eastern Europe for you. The hostel is in an okay location, about equidistant from the train station and the old town--but if I had to choose again, I would have stayed at one of the hostels in the old town.

The good--the staff are super friendly and the wifi reaches the dorm rooms. Actually, the staff were so nice that they deserve a second mention--they are full of information, ready to provide recommendations, print things for free and always have a smile. There's a small common area with a tiny kitchenette. Each bed gets a big locker, but most of them are in a narrow hallway outside of the room, which is awkward but no big deal. The dorm rooms are really big, so there's plenty of space to walk around.

We loved the place. Location was nice. We stayed in a double room, which in fact was a part of an "apartament". We shared bathroom and kitchen with another room (triple) We had a free beer as a welcome :D

Great location, friendly staff, nice clean rooms- and a great price also. While the breakfast on offer was fairly basic (cucumber, tomato, cheese, bread) it was only 5PLN (1 euro) so handy to grab something quick to eat. Cheap bike rental, although i didnt avail of this option!

The hotel is clean and quite comfortable for me. Everyone is so kindly but little bit noisy at night.
Thanks to them, it was a nice trip there.

Great place close to the city center. We were there for 3 days and there were no sirious problems. You can rent a cicycle there for a low price. It is a nice way to explore Krakow. I'm totaly sure that next time I will chose the same hostel as this time.

The Dizzy Daisy Hostel DD Downtown offers no luxury but clean environment, helpful staff, good location... at a fair price!
The historic centre of Cracow, the former capital of Poland, is situated at the foot of the Royal Wawel Castle and staying at Dizzy Daisy helped us to get all those places just by wlaking.
It was a great trip and no doubt, i would recommend!
