“GREAT LOCATION CLOSE TO THE CENTER CITY ANF TO THE CENTRAL TRAIN STATION!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2013

Great location, clean and quiet. Before departure, they guarded the bags for free.
The only bad things were: nent drapes on the windows (light entered the room at 6:30 in the morning) and no air conditionning, but the prices condidering is more than acceptable!

Location is quite superb although the downside is that the nightlife gets a bit noisy. Room was clean and spacious and breakfast was quite adequate. Service was good and staff were very helpful. Would definitely book again.

Nice little hostel, not far from the main square. The hostel only has 6 (?) rooms so is very quiet and peaceful. There is a reasonable free breakfast every day. The staff are pretty friendly and helpful. If you’re looking for something not too loud and rowdy, this is a good option.

This place was OK. Location was excellent, everything was near. Staff was very friendly. Our room was quite noisy, we heard every time the phone or door bell was ringing. And the pillow really was OMG!!! :D

We have decided to stay at Flower Hostel, encouraged by positive reviews on Tripadvisor, it tuned out to be serious mistake. I have stayed in quite a few hostels around the Europe, but this one was the worst by mile. Maybe my expectations were too high; I was looking for decent bed, good sleep and basic breakfast in the morning.

Let's start:
- person at the reception was just weird - poor manners, seem to spy us a bit (I was with Asian person) - what make us feel very uncomfortable during the stay;
- card terminal did not work, so have to draw the money somewhere in the city;
- the room (twin) was interesting - bathroom very good, however no towels (we got them eventually after request), very poor bed: mattress very uncomfortable, pillow (OMG!!!) never seen anything like this in my life - it piece of material filled with some weird stuff - really could not sleep. Wardrobe was not 2nd hand, at least 3rd hand - I thought it will fall apart every time I opened it.
- WiFi was working sometimes well, sometimes not at all
- According to hostel regulations after 10pm it should be quiet at the premises. Our room was next to the kitchen - it was extremely loud to 2 am. The reception is open 24hrs, but nobody seem to care.
- The same lack of care in the morning - apparently breakfast is served till 11 am. At 9.30 there was absolutely nothing to eat, not even the milk for the coffee. Staff put out some cheese, ham, eggs in the morning and do not monitor it all. If people at 8 took everything - it means you will have to eat somewhere else in the city (even though it was included in price).

You would think it is hostel, very cheap - so what you expect. Well, twin room cost us 170zl per night which is the rate of regular hotel, slightly further out. All what you are paying for is central location.

I would not recommend this accommodation to anyone as it could ruin the stay in such beautiful city as Krakow.

I stayed in Krakow for two days, one night at the flower hostel. It was quiet, clean, and a great value. It's located right in the heart of the city (which is quite small), so it' very easy to walk anywhere (e.g., main train station, city square, jewish quarter, etc).

It was quiet, shower and bathroom were fine, and common room was nice with a big kitchen. I stayed in a 4 person dorm with it's own bathroom, and there were only two of us. Free WiFi.
