“Funky, Colourful, Great Location & Friendly Staff”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

Hostel is in a great location, across the road from a lovely park & only a 10 min walk to the Old town as well as 10 min walk from the main train station. Staff are friendly. The blankets are comfy. Common area is Colourful & bright & has a great atmosphere. I'd recommend this place and would stay here next time I come to beautiful Krakow.

The exterior and entrance don't look much but don't let that put you off. The rooms are large, bathrooms clean and private and the common area is welcoming. The breakfast was typical and had free brews all day long. The hostel staff were excellent and helping us. The location was perfect for the main square. Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again in future.

We stayed here only one night but can definitely recommend this Hostel. It is close to the train station and not far from the Old town, also around 15 minute walk to the Jewish District. Staff are very helpful and friendly, all rooms (including bathroom) are very clean. Free wifi, use of laundry, hairdryers, tea and coffee. Breakfast is included in the price (8 euro for 10 person room). Quiet time is from 10pm until 6 or 8am, earplugs are also available if needed (weren't needed in my case). We checked out in the morning and were able to leave our luggage in the bag room to do some touring before our train that night.

Myself and a friend staying in One World Hostel while travelling Europe. As this hostel is very affordable, our expectations were average. We were pleasantly surprised! Every inch of One World is clean, all staff members are friendly, helpful and well informed on activities and history of Krakow. This hostel was worth every penny, with breakfast included, free wifi, washing facilities, free tea and coffee and a great, friendly atmosphere. It has been a great experience, one I would like to repeat! I would visit Krakow again, in order to visit this hostel!

I stayed in this hostel for 3 nights with a friend. I was just so suprised by how clean it was, and that for only 8 euros a night! We met some people who we went out with a few times. The common area was spacious and chill and really social.
The showers were great, big enough and super clean (as were the toilets)
I'd definitely reccomend it to anybody visiting krakow!

This could be a really good hostel, because staff is helpful and the place is clean. location is also not bad. but they don´t have any quiet rooms, since all of them go to reception or common rooms. even with earplugs it was too loud to sleep. they also play loud music all day long, what I pesronally find very annoying.
I know, that some people like these hostels, but if you want a good place to sleep, better avoid the place.

I like this place from the moment I arrived. The receptionist gave me information not just about the hostel but things such as cheap places to eat with good food, best place to change money, tours. Then during my stay there staff was always helpful and friendly. The rooms were very clean and there were lockers in the room. I would definately stayed here again.
Additionally, although I added photos from my stay, a couple of weeks later they closed to make reservations. I have returned to see them and they have done a great job.
