This is a quiet non-party hostel away from the hustle and bustle of Krakow along a bend of the Vistula River. Aga, the wonderful hostess, put me in a nice room with a balcony and a lovely view of the Vistula River and the garden. There is a nice kitchen with stove to cook and a large fridge. The WiFi...

Really lovely rooms but quite far from Krakow town centre. Aga was extremely helpful. Breakfast is not included but there are local shops where you can pick up what you need. Only downside was that is was more B&B than hostel and sometimes I felt bad if we were coming in late etc

All I wanted was an overnight between journeys, and this was just the job. Hostels are not B&B so you always have to sort your own food. There is a good bakery and medium supermarket about 10 minutes walk; make yourself a brew and you are sorted. Make sure you have adress and contact details; Krakow taxi drivers have never...

I love this hostel. Aga (the owner) was really friendly and helpful with any of our queries regarding the city or Poland in general. Pros: Quiet place. No late night partying to wake me up from my slumber. Friendly host. Clean rooms (and bathroom). Good kitchen facilities. Cons: The location is a little awkward. There is a tram stop about...

We had an enjoyable 2 night-stay at this lovely hostel. Aga, the owner, was very friendly and helpful (and had answered promptly all my numerous email queries before we got there). I chose this hostel because it was within walking distance (25 mins via the river walk, but we are good walkers) of the historical centre and because we were...

We only stayed here for 2 nights on our trip around Europe in 2011 but it was by far our favourite hostel of the whole trip. The lady who owns/runs it was warm, friendly and extremely helpful. The breakfast was amazing and we even got a doggy bag to take away with us on our very early morning leaving the...

One could not ask for a better hostel. It is conveniently located, clean and cozy, and best of all, has a caring and extremely knowledgeable hostess, Aga, who is an expert about "all things Krakow." Loved my visit and will never stay anywhere else in Krakow if rooms are available.

Spent three nights in this great wee place and I don't think we could have asked for more. Aga was as helpful as anything and from the minute we set through the door couldn't do enough for us. From helping us plan all our trips, checking the weather and tram times I don't think it could have been much better....

spent four nights in this wonderful hostel. Aga is a lovely host and immediately makes you feel at home. It is just far enough away from the city centre to give the sense of a peaceful retreat but within walking distance of all there is to see. would highly recommend a stay here, Thanks Aga
