Reviewed 3 November 2012

location is ok, close to the old town. it is really old though. it is clean, although the bed looks small but itis comfortable. the owner is helpful. although limited english during conversation. wifi doesnt work on ground floor. so dont pick a room on ground floor. but if you have heavy luggage with you, 1st floor is like 20 flight of steps so be warned as there is no elevator. but for the price, you get what you paid for XD but overall, comfortable stay.

My son and I stayed for two nighta, we had a twin room with shower room and kitchenette. It was clean and functional. There is a communal lounge, with TV and billiard table on the top floor but we didn't use it. The owner was polite and we manged to communicate welk, him in his broken English and me in my rusty polish! Great place to stay if you're on a budget. Short walk, about 15 minutes, to centre.

Easy to find hostel, approx 20mins walk from the train station - follow the tram tracks instead of through the center of Krakow - one straight road and fewer people to avoid with your backpack/suitcase!
Plenty of 24 hour supermarkets and local restaurants near by.
Hostel is situated in an old building spread over 3 floors, the majority of the hostel is on the top two levels containing dorm rooms, kitchen, free washing machine and lounge area.
We stayed in the twin apartment on the ground floor; secure - double locks to get in, with an ensuite and kitchenette; comfy twin beds and free wifi; the only issue we had was the noise - not only people coming and going (the main stairway to the rest of the building is right next to the top of the beds) but also 'old house' noises you expect from old buildings.
Other than that, great stay and we really enjoyed Krakow

Stayed 3 nights in this hostel. We booked a private ensuite room and got a small apartment complete with kitchen. We were a 10-15 minute walk from the old town through a lovely park. There was nothing we could fault this hostel on. The staff could have been more forthcoming when asking for help on good places to eat - but that could have been because of a lack of english.
otherwise a great stay in a very nice city
