The room was uncomfortable and cold. we couldnt rest one night because there were a lot of young people making noice and drinking in the kitchen and the staff didnt do anything. The breakfast could be better. Ubication is perfect.

Finding the hostel was fun - you can see the sign easily but the actual front door is at the back of a restaurant which threw us for a few minutes. We booked a 6-bedded room and were given a room for 6 on the second floor looking out over the town square. The view was fantastic. The room is... More

This beautiful, friendly clean hostel sits right in the middle of Krakow's stunning main market square. Although the accommodation is simple, there are lots of other facilities, like a clean kitchen are with fridge, cooker, microwave and all utensils.

We (2 adults & 2 children) booked the 6 bed apartment for an overnight stay prior to flying out next morning. The location could not be more central (in corner of main square). Reception staff were very friendly and efficient, both when calling ahead to confirm arrival time and when checking in. Apartment is spotless, roomy with well appointed modern... More

I arrived very flustered and Olga and Paulina helped me with my reservation. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The accommodation was above average and I loved my stay in Kraków. I would recommend Kraków is an amazing city and to stay in the centre with such friendly staff was just perfect.

If all you want is a bed to sleep on then Cracow Hostel is a good find. Affordable and central to the Kraków old town which is really great. The hostel staff are also really helpful and accommodating and it has a very homely feel. Unfortunately for us, we had to share the top floor of the hostel with a... More

Stayed at this hostel for a few nights and really really enjoyed it. The hostel is warm, comfortable, clean and has everything you need from a hostel.

Truly surpassed all expectation! With the hostel being relatively cheap and situated on the square, it's safe to to say I was rather skeptical as to what would be the catch... I'm delighted to say no 'catch' existed and instead found the hostel very comfortable indeed! On one of the nights, as a group we decided to have a few... More
