Cheap hostel, very good treatment! The girls can help you arrange some excursions around Krakow, they are all nice and kind. The rooms are ok, clean and well decorated. There is a big room for the breakfast where you can chat with other people, whatch tv and surf on the internet. Oh, and it's very close to the main square...

Very good hostel, clean, every room has its own bathroom. Breakfast was included in the price. Near the city centre, which is very important, you can go almost everywhere on foot. The staff was very helpful.
