very centrally located, close to the main square, not far from the train station or the tram stop, this is an ideal start to visit krakow. As it is not right on the street but located in back yard, noises are minimal. The room I stayed in was off a decent size and had a balcony and I could enjoy the sun in the morning. The place is nicely decorated with old look furniture but a brand new bathroom. The only inconvenient could be the wooden floor as you can hear a little bit your neighbours walking if you are not on the top floor but overall it was brilliant and very good value for money. I would recommend and definitely stay there again. I was given all the info I needed to enjoy my stay by the receptionist. thanks a lot.

Our stay at The Globtroter couldn't have been better - the room was everything we needed - warm and comfortable and in a perfect location. Most of all the kindness and helpful advice with regard to places to see, places to eat and help with buses to catch etc was absolutely invaluable which madeour stay so enjoyable and memorable.

The guesthouse is situated behind one of the main streets leading to the main square, so you really couldn't be much more centrally based. The fact that it is actually behind the main buildings (through a corridor and courtyard) is also nice as it cuts out all of the noise from the street. There is a bar in one of the adjoining buildings, and a couple of reviews we read prior to our trip mentioned it being quite noisy, but we personally didn't hear anything any of the three nights we stayed, and our room overlooked it's back entrance.

The guesthouse itself is really cosy and authentic. The room was lovely and warm and it had a decent shower.

We were also very impressed with all of the staff. The guesthouse operate a 24hour reception and each of the four staff we met were very approachable and happy to help with any queries we had. They all also spoke excellent English, as did most people in the city (which is always a little embarassing considernig we're in their country!)

Really can't fault the place, we have stayed in hostels and guesthouses all over the world and this is definately one of the best we've been in. Thoroughly deserves it's high user rating.

I absolutely love this place!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I consider the Globtoter to be one of Krakow best kept secrets! It's a fantastic hotel / hostel exceeding all of my expectations in terms of price, value for money, cleaness, location, security and friendliness of staff. Its an excellent place which i visit time and time again ( i stayed here 9 times and counting) and i feel comfortable encouraging friends and colleagues to do likewise when they visit Krakow. In summary, the Globtoter is an excellent place which makes the traveller/s feel like they're at home.

Room Tip: I've stayed at this hotel/hostel 9 times in total and have been allocated various rooms that hav...

I've stayed at Globtroter twice and would recommend it to anyone. It's got a really nice atmosphere, lovely staff and fantastic location. They don't do breakfast (or other meals) but you don't really need it as there are loads of nice, cheap restaurants and cafes all around, including a great place for breakfast and lunch next door. Highly recommended!

This was a basic place that was very clean with staff who were very helpful and friendly! I was worried as it was near a club, but found it to be quiet. Very good location. Wi-fi worked well. If you didn't have wi-fi you could use a common computer, which worked well also.
