  • Fridaynight was very loud with the party in the common room. Otherwise quite ok. Hot water ran out many times in the shower, and although we were asked to wait and we did, it didn't heat enough. We waited for almost an hour. We had couple of rude and loud roommates, but that's not hostels fault. The staff was friendly and helpful. Location couldn't have been better!

  • Both main entrance doors were always opened. Not good for security I think (-) The rooms need a card to open (+) It's located next to the main square. Really close to the Castle and the Train Station (+) They helped me to book a tour to Auschwitz (+) I could store my luggage before the check-in and after the check-out (++) I took a cold shower a day because they use water heaters so if other people already used the hot water you lost! (-) The place is REALLY NOISY (hostel and street).

  • The receptionist and staff were very very kind. Free breakfast was good. The service was good that I took a shower before i check in. One thing i didn't like was that the domitory room for 4 people was located in other building.

  • Generally, everything was good. However, my dorm was facing the street where the opposite side is a club so it was extremely loud throughout the night even with windows closed though earplugs helped. Would have also been nice if there could be some kind of tags for baggage storage - right now, it's just a locked cupboard so anyone could take anyone else's bag if they wanted to.

  • Excellent location, very good breakfast. Can't comment on atmosphere as my room was off-premises.

  • Absolutely the best possible location on the center of the old town. Very good free breakfast, and cheap dinner offered in the evenings. The bar here serves the cheapest drinks and beer in town, and the bartender (the hostel manager) is very friendly. Rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. For smokers (like me), it's a bit of hustle as we have to go out into the street to smoke.

  • This hostel was absolutely amazing.Due to milan airport's negligence all my luggage was sent to another country instead of krakow. All I had was my passport and my wallet. One of the girls gave me clothes to wear, another told me where to go to find really cheap clothes as a temp replacement. The hostel itself was incredibly clean, and was perfect for those wanting to go out (in the heart of the bars and clubs) and great for those sleeping in (free earphones). I would stay here again definitely
