The location is the only good thing I personally found about this hostel. In the middle of the main square, surrounded by restaurants and night life. Couldn't have been in a better spot. Everything other then the location was terrible. We had a double room and it was tiny, couldn't have both of our bags open at the same time....

I booked and ensuite room months in advance and as I arrived there I was given a different one. I complained and the person at the desk just told me there was nothing he could do. After some fighting, he told me I would change rooms the next day, so in the next morning I went back to the reception....

It was a lot of fun. We were in Krakow for a couple of days and enjoyed the city and had a great time hanging out at the hostel. We were in a dorm style room, made some friends and had great fun during pub crawl. Dean, the guy who leads a bunch of drunk young adults around is really...

Came to this hostel, wasn't easy to find. Room was okay but there were no sheets on the bed and seemed really dirty. Stayed in the room next to night club, loud which is understandable but people throwing up everywhere, one girl appeared seriously ill and thrown up all over the bathroom, appeared scared and was freaking out, seemed like...

I stayed in this hostel during WYD 2016, there were a lot of people in Krakow but the hostel didn't seem too overcrowded. The location is absolutely perfect, literally 10 seconds from the main square. The staff was nice and helpful, especially Magda. Rooms were clean. One mention for Dean, make sure to join him for the pub crawl, it's...

A good hostel with nice staff, good price, tidy common areas and dorms, own bar and awesome location just next to the main square in old town. I stayed there for only one night but I would absolutely book again.

I stayed here quite a while ago now, but it was a great hostel! The staff were great and very helpful, it had a great vibe about it and has a very sociable feel. We met lots of great people and the staff had organised nights out for everyone which was nice. It's very close to the main square so...

Choose this place if you want to party and if you want to meet other people during your stay. The location of the hostel is perfect, because it is in the city center and close to everything you need including the clubs. The staff is very friendly and the pub crawls are amazing.
