I've thought long and hard about saying this, but this really is the worst hostel I have ever stayed in. I have been hosteling in over 20 countries and the Zodiakus is abysmal in its quality as a place to stay. Shortly after arrival two drunk men entered the hostel without being questioned and within 5 minutes they were brawling...

Escape from this place : - it's really cold in this place (they are not heating properly during the winter) - the standing is generally speaking very low comparing to other hostel in the neighbourhood, - you have to wait 10 minutes to have warm water in the bathroom, - most of the rooms are close to the noisy street...

Hello Paul! Did You forgot that you stealthily entered a girl into an empty room? That you didn't want to pay for her accommodations? Did you forgot that you changed beds and rooms as you and when you wanted? And did you forgot that Finally, I had to remove you from the hostel because you didn't want to pay for...

From the moment you enter inside this hostel, you feel the sincere atmosphere of it. Staff is amazingly helpful and fun. It is like visiting a friend to have a drink and chat, rather than having a budget accomodation for a couple of nights. I have stayed in many hostels during my trip and Zodiakus is the only one which...

The girls that run this hostel friendly, helpful and hilarious. Its definately a party hostel, but it would depend on the group. I was there with 20 year olds so it was non-stop craziness. A party, club night, late nights & non-stop drinks. Unlike some party hostels, it is kept immaculately clean. Its a short 5-10 min. walk from the...

Cant fault this small hostel. Staff are incredibly friendly and cant do enough to help you. Place is incredibly clean. On the Saturday night of our stay the staff arranged a night of vodka shots, popcorn and took us to a local bar/club. Felt more like staying at a friends than a hostel. If I find myself in Krakow again...

Amazing hostel! Zodiakus is a small hostel located in stradom, 1 min to the tram stop, 5 min to the main square and 5 min to the jewish district so it has a perfect location. The hostel is very clean (they clean it every day) and there is breakfast available every morning (coffee, tea, bread, milk, serials, jam, etc.). But...

My partner and I had booked here for 10 days but only stayed for 4 days. When we arrived we realised that due to a booking error on Hostelworld we mistakenly booked the 4 bed room rather than the 10 bed. To cut a long story short the managers (husband & wife) tried to 'negotiate' a price while disregarding our...
