“Clean and simple accommodation”
Reviewed 8 February 2013

I was travelling with a group of friends (7 of us in total) and we booked a 4 bed room and a 3 bed room for one night. On arrival we were greeted by very friendly staff and we got checked in a given our room keys very quickly.
From the exterior and the stairwell we were not expecting very much as the building is tired and would benefit from a refurbishment. However the bedroom corridor was very clean, as were the bedrooms. The shower room / toilets etc are unisex communal facilities and were very clean. Showers were very good with plenty of hot water.
The heating in the bedrooms was very high, and despite turning down the thermostat on the radiators it was still very hot. The beds were comfortable (but I would have preferred a larger and thicker pillow) and I got a good nights sleep - I was in a three bed room (number 6). The 4 of our party in the four bed room (number 7) did not have any blinds of curtains on the window so found it difficult to get to sleep with the street lighting and were woken up early in the morning with the sunlight.
The communal breakfast room was well stocked (although we had to find and wash our own dishes as the previous users had not returned them clean to the cupboards!)
All in all we had a very pleasant stay and the hostel certainly gave us excellent value for money.

Advantage number 1 is a perfect location between the old city and Kazemirz. Apart from that it's a decent place but the standard is rather average. I stayed in a 6-bed dorm and everything was ok but don't expect luxury or modern furniture. Bathrooms are rather clean. Still an overall impression is the place probably needs a little refurbishment.

An amazing central location with simple clean rooms, which is all you need in a hostel! To top it off, the staff were friendly and very helpful with directions to the airport! I would recommend it to anyone looking for a low price hostel but still wanted good standards!

Now this place is basic but if your a fussy eater you can do your own breakfast in a well equipped kitchen I brought my own sausages & bacon as the local stuff is rotten & even eating in a decent hotel doesn't guarantee you will have on your plate what you thought they thought you had ordered! Room smelt of smoke but that wore off the shared washroom facilities were the best I have come across in any part of the world & I have been to places as far as Australia & New Zealand so that's a feather in their cap. Kitchen has a fridge microwave hob & toaster what more can you ask for? I was staying in the hotel next door & moved out over the horrible food & I'm happier here!

Reviewed 19 October 2012

stayed in this hostel for 3 nights, hostel was located dead center of krakow. it was very easily accessible by many trams

i arrived very early as i wanted to go to auschwitz on that day, the staff let me a locker storage room, which was reasonably well protected from non-hostel residents. another plus is that the staff speaks perfect english, and was nice enough to print travels documents for free.

the kitchen is also well equipped, for those that want to cook themselves. the rooms themselves was clean and tidy and heated for the colder months.

slight problem during my stay was that one night the boiler broke down, and as a result, there was no hot water. i'm not sure how common this occurs and this might possibly be a one-off thing. another thing is that you must not leave towels hanging on the sides of the bed/heater to dry as the cleaner will take it away under the assumption that it is a rental towel of the hostels, furthermore the linen is changed daily so that you are required to make your bed every time.

while the hostel is fantastic, i ended up losing a towel and a sweater in the hostel (towel due to the cleaners, sweater unsure) which really dampened my stay

Reviewed 20 September 2012

We stayed there for two nights in a six bedroom shared room. The hostel is located strategically as it's easily to reach town center and just three stops of train main station. It is divided in two floors with different rooms, a kitchen and a common room. All of the doors, except the room's one, are working with code system pass. Rooms are just ok, equipped with lockers, sheets, pillows and covers. Unfortunately, and I do not know why, toilets are shared and not enough (as I always had to queue). Moreover, Internet connection is poor, a little laptop could just be connected to the network in the common room, not in the rooms. Finally, I would not recommend you this hostel if you want to sleep during the nights: noise was always piercing and some guests seemed to be so party animal and used to came back at wee hours.
