“A Pleasant Hostel”
Reviewed 9 September 2012

This was a good place to stay. Clean and spacious rooms with helpful staff. Location is excellent; near to all transportation needs, interesting venues, shops and attractions. It is value for money regarding the cost per night. It is safe and secure. Modest breakfast and tea/coffee all day long. Five minutes walk to the central train and bus stations with a lively surrounding.

This hostel is centrally located, just a few blocks from the train station/Galleria and a few more from Planty Park, the Old Town, Wawel, etc. In a great building, but be careful: it consists of three stories (no lift). I was lucky to have a room on the ground floor, but had carried my 40 kilos of luggage up three flights before I found that out! (Third floor is reception, kitchen, etc.) The staff were super helpful and more than willing to call taxis, make reservations, give advice, directions, etc. My room (a single with en suite facilities) was spotless, roomy and cleaned daily whether I requested it or not. Despite a tiny hot water tank (I could just about eke out five minutes of shower time), the room was definitely worth the price, since I was travelling alone. Each floor opens onto a lovely courtyard enclosed by the building on three sides.

Excellent staff. Lovely warm welcome and they really went out of their way to make sure we had all the information we needed. They are very knowledgeable about the area. The couple that owned the hostel are exceptionally nice, and the night porter was extremely hard working and interesting to talk to about Poland. The location is excellent, very short walk from the station and the centre. The rooms were very comfortable and I would say that this hostel is extremely good value for money. Me and my boyfriend travelled round Europe for 6 weeks and this was our favourite stay. The staff made this stay one to remember, and was a lovely touch to our stay in poland. We'll be back!

I stayed at D J way back in 2007, it is very near to both the station and the bus terminal, and walking distance to the city square.

The staff is really friendly and helpful.
