Hostel has two houses the One with number 4 has reception, if you are in the other one (50m away) there is no reception. In the other house is a toilet and shower for 8 beds, so maybe waiting time. The nice common room of main building is no longer existing or hidden, so no couch or kitchen opportunity. So...

We booked this hostel a few weeks before visiting Krakow, on the premise that it was advertised as "a party hostel" and "a great way to meet fellow travellers". On arrival, we soon found out that the hostel had very recently been converted into a hotel, with double rooms only, and was far from the party hostel it was advertised...

What an absolute dump. I am sitting upright for the second night in a row due to cigarette smoke filling every crevice in this hostel. There is absolute no recourse or rules and everyone is smoking inside. I think of the website and of the fact that on Booking.com they advertised at 25zl, when I booked I paid 45zl which...

The apartment was clean and tidy with comfortable beds. There was...

Originally my friend and I booked separate rooms, then in a desperate backpacking money saving plea we decided to call this hostel and ask if we could just have one room. Which they were very helpful with, not even a cancellation fee! We stayed in the apartment just down the road from the main hostel which was lovely, if you...

This is a great hostel. The location is perfect if you want to party. All the clubs and bars are a stones throw away. If you do not wish to go out by yourself, the Flamingo does a great pub crawl. You are also two minutes away from the town square. There are plenty of places to eat around at...

The location is the only good thing I personally found about this hostel. In the middle of the main square, surrounded by restaurants and night life. Couldn't have been in a better spot. Everything other then the location was terrible. We had a double room and it was tiny, couldn't have both of our bags open at the same time....
