The hostel was easy to find since it's in an excellent location. It's easy to get to all of the main sites from it, and we did it all by foot. We got our room at the exact moment of check-in. It was nice and comfortable, although the bathroom should have been cleaned more often. The hostel has an excellent...

It's dead cheap, so you get what you pay for. I had a few issues with cleanliness, and I think there could be more showers and toilets (they're not in the room, instead there's two per floor). They have signs saying to let them know if the toilets aren't up to standards, so if I'd had a major issue I...

Good location in between the old town and the jewish quarter. Social atmosphere with lots of activities going on. The rooms are very basic and bathroom was pretty gross. It was extremely loud throughout the night but way too hot to close the windows. Lots of people who party till all hours of the night and sleep all day.

The hostel is very stylish. The thing that catches the traveller is the great amount of facilities: a pool, table football, pub, internal lounge room, big kitchen, good service and free great breakfast for just 12 euros per night. The rooms are spacious and there is a big closet. It is almost central, between the centre and the historical jewish...

As soon as I got in, I was looked after and explain that I would be in a 6 beds dormitory with similar travelers, people traveling alone and that was great for mingling. The location is between the Old City and the Jewish quarter which is nice. The basic breakfast is good enough as you have juice, coffee, meat, tomatoes...

Even though this hostel it is not centrally located, Krakow is so small the place is less than 10 minutes away from the historical center and 15 minutes away from the central train/bus station. The rooms are comfortable and clean, even though the beds moved a lot when you tried to get on the top bunk. There are two bathrooms...

Location is very good, price very accesible and people there are very nice. The ambience of the place is very original. Definitely worth recommending. Only bathroom maybe was not perfect, but it's not a big problem, just be shure to have Your rubber slippers with You and then You're fine.
