“I love this hostel! ”
Reviewed 31 August 2014 via mobile

Having just come from Wrocław and staying in dorms, I was really looking forward to having a nice private room in a central area of Krakow.

My stay was perfect - free tea & coffee, impeccably clean bathrooms, kitchen and bedroom and really friendly staff. Really good value for money, very central on Starowiślna which takes you to Kazimierz if you turn left, and old town square if you turn right (10 min walk maximum).

I would stay here again and recommend to anybody else staying in krakow if you want a nice peaceful place to stay.

Stayed August 2014, travelled as a couple

A Very good hostel! The rooms are clean, simpel but a lot of space and the bathrooms are super clean. We had a private room with shared bathroom and we enjoyed staying in this hostel. The people who are working there are very friendly. I lost my phone in the common area and they sent it back to my homecountry....that is good service!!!!

We stayed for one night whilst travelling through Europe. We booked a private room and ensuite bathroom. The prices were excellent and the room was fantastic (remember this is a hostel not a hotel) it was clean and funky! Also we had a private garden terrace which was nice. The staff were nice, their English wasn't fantastic but we didn't mind as we are in their country at the end of the day, although it was easy enough to communicate.
20 minute walk from the train station and 10 minutes from the central square old town.

Plenty of shops nearby and trams.

Excellent hostel for the price and high life hostel was above our expectations. Will be coming back again!

I really loved my stay at High Life Hostel. It is in a brilliant location – safe and close to the old square. It has great character, with good size bedrooms and quirky decoration. To be honest, it felt far more like a small boutique hotel than a hostel! Everything was modern and clean, including the bathrooms and the kitchen (where there was tea, coffee, and cereal that we could help ourselves too – just one of the little extras that made this hostel special). There is a little roof terrace that some of the bedrooms have access to. We managed to catch the sun there in March, so I’m sure in the summer it will be a real suntrap up there.

The staff at High Life Hostel were truly fantastic. They were so friendly, always smiling, and went out of their way to make sure we had an enjoyable stay. They made me feel very at home.

When my friend and I arrived here we were halfway into our trip around Europe and were over the moon to find ourselves in such stylish and comfortable surroundings at such a great price! A real gem of a hostel that I have already recommended to all my family and friends!

Originally planned to stay for 2 night, but stayed for 3 because it was so good!

Staff were great and helpful, bathrooms and kitchen were all clean.

Great for what we needed, maybe wouldn't recommend for couples but people travelling or friends it's ideal.
