We booked Old Walls Hostel as it was the cheapest place for when we were visiting Krakow. It's about a 10-15 minute walk in to Old Town, and was a great location. We had to add a last minute person to our room (we requested an apartment) and they responded promptly and politely. The man that owns the hostel was... More

We stayed in a double room with an en-suite on the ground floor. The room was clean and had a small kitchenette. The location of the hostel was ideal and was about a 10 minute walk from the centre. The room itself was quite dark with not much light, however it kept the room cool which was a bonus as... More

Everything you needed was there including free use of the washing machine which is great when you have been travelling for months!

Well-run family business. Everything was clean and orderly. Staff was helpful when we asked for assistance (e.g. finding bus times on the internet). We had a very spacious room for the price. The low cost may be explained by the varying standard and casual composition of interior and furniture. They obviously haven´t put much money into giving the place a... More
