“Good place to stay”
Reviewed 23 August 2012

We stayed four nights in Mama's double, and it was totally great! The only cons were that we had a misunderstanding with the hostel location and the free taxi, the guy at the reception was new, so we got half of the informations and it was like hell to find the place (we walked there). It has no signs on the outside street that in this building there is the hostel. We only, by luck, tried to open the entrance door with the key given to us but then we had to call to the mama's reception and we finally after an hour wandering between the Krovoderska and Lobzowska streets got into the hostel. And also some mornings we were late in our planning because there is only one table with four chairs in the kitchen that were totally occupied for at least an hour, so we sometimes had to take our breakfast in the room. But we met nice people there. The apartment is great, two showers, two toilets. The rooms are simple but big, and the beds comfortable. The location is also great, 3 minutes walk to the nearest grocery shop, and 10/15 minutes to the old town. Really safe by night.

Room Tip: If you have clothes to wash, ask for a room with a balcony

Totally recommended for the price - the Double is actually a flat in a block house, which is kinda weird, but the interior is cool, furniture and kitchen things are definitely in good shape, lots of maps, magazines and books are left by other travellers which is also lovely. Rooms are pretty simple, and in the winter maybe a bit cold. The bathroom was perfectly clear until our stay. The only bad part of our stay was the arrival - we didnt know that the keys will be in the centre, in another hospital, but the staff was very helpful at the phone&check in and get a free taxi ride for us.

Myself and two friends stayed at Mama's Doubles as we wanted to pay hostel prices, but didn't want to share a room with a group of people that we didn't know! Mama's Doubles is a 10-15 minute walk from the Main Market Square. The surrounding area was quiet and seemed safe, so we were happy to walk to and from the centre late at night. Mama's Doubles is basically a 4 bedroom apartment on the 4th floor of an apartment block with an elevator. This has the disadvantage that there is no onsite reception, which is located at the Mama's Hostel and delays any response to emergency situations (as we found, when we were unable to open the door to the apartment late at night). The standard of the rooms are good, the kitchen is modern and there are two separate shower rooms and toilets. Mama's Doubles would be better if it was closer to the Main Square, but this was the best value private accommodation we could find in Krakow. We paid 150PLN per night for a 3 person room, which was equal to £12 per person per night. Contact the hostel for the exact location of Mama's Doubles, as it is incorrectly highlighted on Google Maps.
