I stayed at Tara Hostel for two weeks with a group of friends. Great value! We lucked out with a private room and bathroom (newly renovated!) and a gorgeous view of the city. Conveniently located to bakeries, groceries, and a great bar (Don Quixote). Agreed that the entrance is intimating and the Wifi is spotty but the front desk staff...

I've been here with a group of people. They told to us that we will have an apartment, but we had just 2 rooms. One of them was without a door!!! It was very cold, so I was afraid to wash my hair. We didn't have kitchen, breakfast wasn't included, so I'm very disappointed. If you smoke, you should pay...

I stayed here from the 2nd July to 6th July. The building shares a communal hallway which is a bit dark. The reception is on the 2nd floor. The staff were really nice and friendly and very helpful with our questions. The room is basic but for about £25 per night was great value. The wifi worked really well and...

Stayed at the hostel for 3 nights with my friends. The room was spacious and nicely decorated. The view from our balcony was amazing. There was wifi in the common room. Not all the beds were very comfy, but mine was fine. The location was perfect! Staff was friendly. Great stay!

Good place for youth groups. Quite cheap, helpful staff, not far to the city centre. On the way to the centre there are many restaurants and places where you can eat cheap and delicious meals. You can meet Jewish history.

spacious rooms . we got room of 8 people divided to 2 rooms. there is free WiFi but the entrance is sort of hidden in a shared building entrance. this is downside means that you can be too loud in there. the 24h reception is handy if you are planning to come late. the location is really close to Kazimierz...

this is not a hotel, it is a hostel, dont get confused. the rooms are basic but clean. the hostel is not very welcoming as it has a rather dull shared entrance which you need to buzz to be allowed in to a dark cold corridor which leads to a staircase which is equally as cold and dark which leads...

What I liked the most about this hostel is our room. It was actually an apartment divided into 3 separate rooms, each with three beds so we had a lot of space. There was a little table with a couch and a balcony as well. Staff was friendly and the breakfast was better than expected. Love the location because Kazimierz...
