The location is great--near the train station and the old city, the staff is very helpful and the double room we had was clean but the building is very old. The floor creaked and there is only one shower stall and one toilet on our floor. There was only enough hot water for one person to shower. The next person...

Me and partner stayed here for 4 nights and was welcomed warmly. First impressions where a little creepy when you first walk in downstairs and then once your up in the reception area and common room its extremely inviting! Rooms are small and wi-fi did not have the best signal strength at all in my double room and no English...

It's a pretty nice place, near to the principal touristic points of the city, has a good price, it's cheap and comfortable. Guys of the front desk were really helpful (even that I can't speak polish), I liked very much, if you go to Krakow enjoy Aston. (There is a very good traditional restaurant on their street, i can't remember...

I only stayed in this hostel with a friend for one night, but it seemed to be a great value! The price was extremely affordable, and the hostel seemed clean and comfortable enough to me! Our room was one with a shared restroom, but it was very nice, and I only ever saw one other guest during our stay. The...

All the staff here were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. We checked in at one building and the staff member helped us take our luggage across the street and a few doors down to another building which the hostel also has rooms in, which wasn't a problem. Staying here you're about a 10 minute walk from both the main train...

My partner and I stayed here for just one night. We had a really great time, the room was nice with a wonderful big window with a view of a little garden.

The hostel room we stayed in was at 44 Dluga, across the street from the main reception and lobby. It is a very good location; it's right up the street from the Old Town, and just a ten minute walk from a huge mall and the bus/train station. There are also a couple of small supermarkets nearby, as well a...

This hostel is located in an old tennat house reasonably close to the Old Town- some 15 min walk. Area around is not spectacular, including a shabby massage parlour/brothel and some bars.

“If the wifi is important for you than the private rooms are not the best decision in this hostel.”

“Try to avoid rooms near the communal bathroom and kitchen if possible. Be aware of climbing flights of stairs as no elevators in the building.”
