I will not be staying at this hostel but booking.com sold me a pup. I reserved thinking I could cancel but when I clicked cancel (after about an hour after making the booking) I was informed I would be charged full rate. I have set up a dispute with booking.com and my credit card company as I distinctly read on...

The only good thing about this hostel is location. It is placed very close to the Main Square, that is why I give them 2 stars, not 1. First of all the door policy is weird. You have to visit the reception desk everytime you want to get into your room. There is only one key to the room, so...

We were a big group of students for a weekend trip- the hostel offers wonderful breakfast, very friendly service and clean rooms. We were 10 in a room, but the conditions and room were really perfect defined! One bathroom and one sink in the floor/kitchen part... I liked the hostel a lot! Big recommendation for all travelers

It was OK, but there is just one bathroom for a lot of people. And the towels that were supposed to be free it was just a thin sort of sheet. For people that needs to sleep in the middle of the afternoon or go to bed early is not that good because the hostel's bar is just beneath it...

Clean , near the City center and tram. Breakfast was good for such a place. Was there with friends in a 10p room. Only one shower and bathroom for every two rooms! WiFi only in reception and a room next to it and not in rooms. There were several lockers in each room but no keys.

The hostel was near to Old town but not very noisy at night. The room was clean and tiny. However, there is only one shared bathroom in each floor so you will have to expect long wait in the morning. Breakfast is quite simple with not many choices. Overall, it worths the price.

Close to tram and bus station (3 or 4 stops from the main train station). Also close to Main Square. Several supermarkets on the same street. For some reason I had to go to the reception every time I wanted to enter the hostel and then ask them to open the door for me (reception is in the building next...

I have booked a single room in this hostel through booking.com and of course I was changed right away, which is expected. The price was steep even for Krakow but I thought ok, at least it should be nice. Not really! The room was dirty and the bed was missing the bed sheet. Of course no breakfast was included and...

My friend and I arrived at hostel Faust after another hostel we booked had not received our request and was full. We questioned why this hostel had so many rooms available upon such short notice. When we arrived we were told there was only one key for the dorm of 9 so the room was permanently unlocked for anyone in...
