“Great hostel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

The hostel is really great! I like everything there. The location is not in the centre of Krakow, but it's more positive characteristic than negative. Girls on the receotion desk is very sweet, they will help you with everything. Room is clean, tidy and comfortable. I live in 8-bed room, in fact I come late just to sleep. On every floor is toilet and bathrooms. Also you have a key from you locker box where you can left your things. For only 3.5 euro you can have delicious breakfast. On the first floor is room with 2 computers and living room. If you give 10 zlotych deposit you can have towel, than when you check out you will have you money back.
Next time I'm also stay in this hostel, thanks them for everything.

Really clean hostel with everything you need! Staff were very kind and helped with any questions - they also helped us book a trip. The location is not in the very centre, but it doesn't take long to walk there (10mins to the square) and it's an easy route, also is pretty close to the train station.

The hostel is about a 15-20 minute walk from the city centre. After a night of pub crawling through Krakow, it's not the most fun journey home, but taxi's aren't too expensive. Otherwise, if you're feeling up to it, you can certainly walk. I walked home and never felt unsafe, but it is a bit of a journey.

The hostel itself is nice. It's an older building, the rooms are relatively spacious, and the beds were comfortable. I stayed in a 5 bed female dorm. One complaint of the rooms is that there aren't enough outlets for 5 people (only 2). Another complaint is that there are only 2 showers & 2 toilets per floor (about 20-25 people per floor).

There is no lift, so be prepared to carry all of your stuff up the stairs. The garden out back is fun for drinks,but it is in a residential area, so you will have to be quiet at a decent time. Front desk has no problem coming out to yell at you if you're out there after hours though. The bar downstairs is also decent and worth checking out before heading into the city.

This hostel is so nice, it is beautifully decorated, the people working there are so friendly, always there to help you out with everything you need! For the price that you have to pay (super cheap!) it is amazing what you get!

Room Tip: Room on the ground floor (4 bed dorm) is a little bit noisier, so I would pick a room on a higher fl...

Wow. There you have it. Stay here. If you're in Krakow, stay here.

You want more? Right on. As far as location is concerned, I'm 4 minutes walk from 4 great places to eat and 10 minutes away from Old Town. Krakow is a very quiet city in relation to its' big brother capital city, Warsaw, but it is a beauty.

The hostel itself was very easy to find. The reception is open 24 hours and wonderfully hosted by an array of kind friendly staff. The room is very well kept, and unique as far as I can tell from the nose I've had in others. We have a balcony (SO GOOD) and the bed is the best I've stayed in any hostel ever (Which is about 15 now.) Showers are great. Wi-fi is excellent as they have found the secret of placing a router on every floor like good clever people. Take note 99% of ALL OTHER HOSTELS. First laundry wash is free (This is such a good idea) and you can leave the key at reception (All hostels need this.) It's really clean and it just has a great vibe.
And the price. Oh my good god, the price.

Would be nice to have shower gel included, and breakfast could be a bit more varied! Everything else was spot on though so I can't complain one bit!

Seriously impressed, and I will absolutely be staying here again when I am back in Krakow. It's more like a Hotel than a Hostel.
Thank you ever so much!

Room Tip: Balcony is a must. It was so nice to have one.

Pretty close to the center of Krakau; totally walk distance!

The hostel is huge but the decoration of our room was a little bit weird and old school. It was a spacious double one, big bed with shared bathroom. The common room was super nice and big with a huge TV. Kitchen was also nice and we were able to cook delicious pasta over there.

I'd like to say a big thank you to the front desk girl (the blond one who also speaks Portuguese! That was surprising and sweet!) for being very helpful and kind.

You can free Wifi access and it has a pretty nice Net connection.
No breakfast (just if you pay some Zlotys) but you have all the equipments to prepare your own.
