At first, the hostel may scare you a little bit, but things may change while you're there. It is unconventional, but it's cheap and has a good atmosphere. I booked one of the big dorms and I had a good experience.
The facts that you should now: It's not fancy. Now they changed their name, but when I got there it was a bit difficult to find the place, because it has more things than just the hostel. The places is kind of old, but it just adds a bit of adventure to all the trip, doesn't it?
The dorm room is not locked, which means that everyone can come and go, whenever they like, but there's always someone at the reception that I think takes care of who is entering the place. You can also ask for a locker to put your things, and then you have your things behind a key at least.
The showers and toilet are in the common area, so you have to cross it half-naked. But it's Europe. People are evolved.
The place is very well located, close to the train/bus station and to the market square and all the fancy things in Krakow.
