Good location - Near the Kraków Central Railway Station & Bus Station. And its big shopping mall. Easy walk to the old town area. Nice friendly staff. Good breakfast even though I didn’t eat any. A bit costly compared to other Poliish hostels though. I stayed there around Sept, 2014.

I stayed here a couple nights in June 2014 and had a wonderful visit. The hostel is in a historical building that is very well-maintained. It actually felt more like I was I was staying in somebody's home as opposed to a hostel or hotel. The common area has the feel of a living room. The entire place is very...

The room we got was nice, big and clean. A bit old but classy furniture. The included breakfast is great with a choice of fresh bread, good coffee and a plate of ham and cheese as well as cereals. Only downside is that some rooms are south side and can get a bit hot without aircon. Staff also is very...

The place is very central. Near the main rail/bus stations and near the "Galleria". A big & fancy shopping mall (the best I have been to, in my visit to Poland). 10 min' walk to old town. The staff is extremely nice, spatially Arthur, who had a lot of patience to explain all and any detail about the city. The...

“If you arrive at night, the lights in the hallway as you enter will be off. Look for the light button to your left as you walk in (there's several of these around on each floor)”
