Small, homely hostel
Quiet
The staff were amazing, the hostel wasn't very full when we were staying there so they treated us as if we were staying in a B&B! They gave us breakfast at whatever time we woke up and helped us plan out our trip. Helped us figure out bus/tram timetables and which attractions to go see.

I loved my stay in this hostel. We stayed in a dormitory that was spacious enough to not feel crowded. It is a ssmall hostel that has a homely feel, and we even spent one of our quieter evenings sitting in the living room socialising with other people in the hostel. The kitchen was big enough to cook a meal/make a cup of tea...and the hostel was in a good location, not too far from anything.

Good location, just a minute walk from Wawel and very close to Old Town. Good value for money. Very friendly stuff. There were some problems with bigger group coming to the same room I was located in, so I was offered a solo room for the same price. Nice common room with internet, guidebooks and a place to socialize. Free breakfeast included (bread, cheese, joghurt, meat, tea/coffee).
I plan to stay there again in December.

This was a lovely hostel - the owners were welcoming and helpful, and the hostel itself was clean and comfortable. The location is great - ten minutes walk to the main square and 5 from Wawel Castle. The breakfast was good, and included brewed coffee!

We stayed here for 2 nights in May. It was a nice hostel.. very clean but a little overpriced. (€18 each for a 2 bed) When we stayed here we were rudely awaken at 4am by noisy australian girls burping the alphabet so that wasnt good! The night porter heard all this but did nothing to quieten them! Apart from that its okay.. id much prefer Greg and Tom's hostel in Market Square area though!! (Cheaper too!)
