Friendly stuff, clean rooms, clean bathroom and toilets, clean kitchen and all premises. Free coffee and tea in the kitchen is also available. Also play station room and small library. Easy to get to know other people as there are many common areas, like couches, bean bags and eating area.. Internet worked perfectly. really great place!

Stairway hostel is one of the best hostels I've stayed in during my travels. Right in what used to be the Jewish ghetto, the location is full of history. The rooms are huge and the beds are amazingly comfortable. The bottom bunks even have enough room for you to sit up without being scared of hitting your head. Staff are reallu nice and super helpful. I would definitely stay here again and will recommend it to everyone I know going to Krakow!

A short tram ride outside of old town near the Jewish district. Up two flights of stairs to the stairway hostel. Originally had one night booked but this was extended to 2, due to trains. Very average hostel, rooms were ok, however bedding was poor. Interesting shower facilities, where the curtain didn't stop water escaping all over the communal bathroom floor. No breakfast included. Noise in the hostel was not moderated by staff, tough when we had a 6am train. Someone stole my water from the shared fridge.

Stayed here for 3 nights and had a great time. Probably the best hostel I've been too. Clean, peaceful with a lovely atmosphere. It is pretty much run by one guy, who is the nicest guy ever. Helps organize day trips to Auschwitz ect. Lets you know wheres good to go at night time, helps organize your train journeys to where ever your going next and even orders pizza for you. One of nicest people I've met and very laid back too. Along with that the place is great value for money. He also took any song request we had and played it for us even early in the morning. Stay here dont worry bout the location theres a tram stop right next to it.

We stayed here for 3 nights, and had no problems staying here. It was nice to be able to lock our stuff away, the beds were comfy, the showering and toilet facilities were generally wet clean. One small problem was it was just a curtain for the shower. But the staff were happy to help, and book trips for you, which is really helpful. And it's so cheap! The only problem is it's in the old Jewish ghetto which is a good 40 minute walk from the centre... But it's only a short team ride away which I think only cost about £1 for a short journey. Overall a nice hostel. Nice chilling space, and a place to eat your dinner, and free coffee makes everything better! =)

The best experience in a cheap hostel !!

I spent 4 days @ STAIRWAY and I had a very good time.
The hostel is the cheapest one in Crakow and far only 20 min walking from Market Square.
The Jewish area is characteristic and full of 100% local people (don't be afraid about this).

The manager of the hostel is a very helpfull and patient guy (one man show).

The hostel is clean and ben arredato.
It has a big common room: two sofa and a lot of puff, tv with playstation always turned on (P.E.S.) and good entertaining music coming out the speakers.
The 10 people bedroom is well organized, clean,comfortable,large and beds are excellent (they don't squeak, so no boring noise during the night).
Near the hostel: telepizza, alcool shop 24h, supermarkets!!

GREAT EXPERIENCE! Marco

Our room was really cosy and clean. We all had a locker under our bed in which to store our things. There were quite a few showers and toilets in the hallway and we never had to wait to use one. There was a nice communal area with bean bags and the kitchen was really new. Breakfast was provided in the morning, there wasn't a massive variety but it was substantial if you got there at a decent time.
The staff were really helpful with pointing us in the right direction with trams.
