It is a student hotel not a regular one. They turned the couch into the bed by spreading over a bed lining. We stayed there for 5 days and they did not clean the room but the student hotel is cheap. I recommend the hotel for students.

Briefly stayed here as part of my itinerary. My expectations were low as I wouldn't have chosen it myself but it was totally fine for the purpose of my trip. The rooms are basic but clean. Rooms are ensuite. Some rooms seem larger than others but I could only see other rooms from the outside. Hotel exterior is gloomy. Looks...

The best option for young people on the road, especially students. Great location, all in the vicinity of Zaczek. Rooms are comfortable and clean, but Wi-Fi is only available at the front desk. Young people can have a great time in here

We stayed at the Zaczek Student Hotel during World Youth Day 2016 in Krakow. It was a functional budget hotel that was located very well for our event in the city. Everything in Krakow was within walking distance from the Zaczek. The rooms are no frills dorm rooms in a large square cement block building, but they were clean and...

For 12,5 soup plus main dish plus juicy water to drink, food is good for this price. I eat here almost every day. Many kinds of dishes. The only time to wait for food is in the queue, so if there is no q you get food almost instantly. Bon apetit

Good for exploring Kraków on foot, clean room and bathroom but scarce wifi only available in the reception area. Can get loud because of the nearby student club but only until about 2 am. Nearby Blonia path great for walking or running and definitely check out the food truck area called Bezogrodek, located few stops down by tram or a...

I stayed in this hotel 3 nights (30.122015. - 02.01.2016.) with my boyfriend. We were surprised to see clean renovated rooms, with big TV screen, fridge, electric kettle, 2 mugs, spoons and plates.The room itself isn't big, but it is clean, warm, with free towels. It has one big closet, 2 beds (separate, so we decided to move furniture and...

Really, it is a wonderful place, when you are travelling alone. They have smart single rooms with shower. So, it is cheap but comfortable place to stay. Not far from the city center (about 15 minutes by foot). There is only one bad thing: Wi-Fi access is only in their lobby, but they have a cable internet in roomes.

1: This is no hotel, it`s a student bed/breakf. You get one towel and one piece of toiletpaper a week. If you ask for more you feel like a criminal. 2: The rooms were cleen and big 3: All the reseptionists were incredibly unfriendly, except from one girl the last day. We stayed for four nights and didn`t see 1...

Also public transport (tram + bus) are very nearby. So far the good points of this place....... Please note that this is a hostel and not a...
