I thought the Stranger was a great deal for the price! Free kielbasa on their outside BBQ after coming back from a day in beautiful Krakow made my stay! The "supercouch" in their Juju lounge was a great place to relax (or sleep!) The staff is world-renowned. I would highly recommend the Stranger - thumbs up.

The place is great to meet other "strangers" travellers. Common area is so open and the Super Couch fantastic. You can just lay down and watch the movie on the big screen. Bathrooms are clean and rooms are spacious and bright.

The staff here are amazing, will help in anyway possible to make your stay comfortable. Speak excellent English and reception is open 24 hours. The shower and bathroom are a disappointment, there is no lock on the shower door and I had a group of boys come in on me.. not impressed. There is only one bathroom and shower room... More
