The best option for young people on the road, especially students. Great location, all in the vicinity of Zaczek. Rooms are comfortable and clean, but Wi-Fi is only available at the front desk. Young people can have a great time in here

We stayed at the Zaczek Student Hotel during World Youth Day 2016 in Krakow. It was a functional budget hotel that was located very well for our event in the city. Everything in Krakow was within walking distance from the Zaczek. The rooms are no frills dorm rooms in a large square cement block building, but they were clean and... More

For 12,5 soup plus main dish plus juicy water to drink, food is good for this price. I eat here almost every day. Many kinds of dishes. The only time to wait for food is in the queue, so if there is no q you get food almost instantly. Bon apetit

Good for exploring Kraków on foot, clean room and bathroom but scarce wifi only available in the reception area. Can get loud because of the nearby student club but only until about 2 am. Nearby Blonia path great for walking or running and definitely check out the food truck area called Bezogrodek, located few stops down by tram or a... More

I stayed in this hotel 3 nights (30.122015. - 02.01.2016.) with my boyfriend. We were surprised to see clean renovated rooms, with big TV screen, fridge, electric kettle, 2 mugs, spoons and plates.The room itself isn't big, but it is clean, warm, with free towels. It has one big closet, 2 beds (separate, so we decided to move furniture and... More

Really, it is a wonderful place, when you are travelling alone. They have smart single rooms with shower. So, it is cheap but comfortable place to stay. Not far from the city center (about 15 minutes by foot). There is only one bad thing: Wi-Fi access is only in their lobby, but they have a cable internet in roomes.

If you ask for more you feel like a criminal. 2: The rooms were cleen and big 3: All the reseptionists were incredibly unfriendly, except from one girl the last day.

A fine place to stay - very comfortable student dorm accommodations with great beds, clean en suite bathrooms, and a good breakfast spread. Downside: no wifi, only ethernet. They provide ethernet cables free of charge, but they are not always in the best condition. Really great location - a 15-minute walk away from the main square, and right next to... More
