“Cute and cosy room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013

I stayed there for 1 night with my boyfriend and it was really great. Hostel is situated near to historic city center and to the main train station. Room was clean and quiet. They have really nice and helpful staff and breakfast for free! Highly recommended :)

The staff were amazing, so friendly and always ready to help. the rooms were very comfortable. : The hostel is just few steps from the main street of Krakowand max 10-15 min walking distance to the old town. Breakfast is very good and cheap. I really appreciated the helpfulness of the staff: The rooms are big enough and public areas are cleaned at all time:)

Hi! I went to this hostel a few weeks ago and it was really susprising (in a good way) . We didnt expect too much due to the cheap prices of the rooms but as i said is more than a hostel. The room was perfectly clean, the location is very good and the staff and breakfast was really good. We were more than satisfied! Keep working like that!
Regards from Sweden!

It was really really good for any of aspects. Location is good enough! Cleanliness is very good. Service was perfect, including city tours and navigation although outside from hostel. you can find reception open 24 hours and this is really important aspect!
Linen and towels are included which is perfect
In private room the bathroom is also inside the room and it was quite clean
Price cannot be better for these attributes.
It provides really good facilities for cheapest prices!
I would choose is if i need to go again!

Room Tip: we stayed in private room and it was like a hotel room which is much more above average!

nice hotel – hostel-style near the old town (10 min. walk or 2 tram stops). Occupies the third floor of the building, which in times of war was Gestapo headquarter (there is a corresponding museum). The tram provides direct access to the hotel from the Main train station (it’s enough to buy ticket for 15 min.). At the end of the corridor there is a kitchen with seating. In the morning there is a breakfast place, other times you can cook on your own (you can put your food in the fridge...). All the time you can drink tea, coffee, chocolate ... We bought and cooked hot wine ... The room is equipped enough. The bathroom has a liquid soap (for use in the shower is not suitable). Breakfast is sufficient. There are 2 computers with internet access. had no problems with communication with staff in Polish-style Belarusian and English. You needn’t public transport in order to explore the city. Nearby there is a small shop. If you want to visit water park - near the bus stop (it takes 25 minutes to get to the park). there is room to store luggage in the last day and a guest toilet in one of the rooms. Only positive emotions ... besides, it was Christmas Eve.
I was not able to catch good WiFi. The room was near the kitchen, so one night it was too loud. Polish-language channels only.

Room Tip: Further from the kitchen...

We arrived at 21.30 via Taxi, 66 Zlt from the Airport, as we thought it'd be difficult to navigate the streets in the dark. It might have proved tricky to find as the entrance is not that obvious, although if you look skywards you'll see the Premium sign above a huge brown door. It shares the building with the Freedom Hostel, and a Shooting Range.. at first we were slightly amused but you need not worry as we heard no shooting what so ever. There is a lift up to the hostel reception on floor 3, the staff are polite and helpful, and willing to offer help with directions. On that point it is really easy to get to the main square from the hostel, turn right out of the hostel then at the end of the street turn left walk 15-20 mins and you are there, or just get any tram and get off just before it turns left or right. Back to the room, Room 20, a reasonable size room, with pleasant decor, a wardrobe, table and stool, TV with only Polish channels, double bed with separate duvets and a pillow each, the bed was too soft for my liking, but still a comfortable nights sleep had each night, the only grumble was the curtain situation, bit fancy but not sufficiently thick to cut out morning light. The bathroom really was the gem in the room, easily better than any travelodge or hostel that I've stayed in before, very clean and hygienic. shower was powerful and hot, toilet worked and additional toilet on request, and a wash basin, two small to medium towels in the room, however we brought our own towels. Also they provided cotton face pads and cotton buds (Q tips).

There was a bit of noise in the morning as the courtyard was shared with residents, but nothing to overbearing and offensive.

The other facilities in the hostel were as expected, pop and water available at reception, in the common area a fridge and the usual cooking facilities, not huge but big enough.

As for tours there are a few bookable at reception for pick up at the hostel through See Krakow, we went on the Auschwitz tour 160 Zlt each and I can safely say it is worth every zloty, prompt pick up in a a/c mini bus. although bring a sandwich and a drink as they do not provide much and opportunity to refuel is limited on the tour in two 10-15 minute breaks, I would say going to Krakow this is a must see, if you do one thing, do this!!

Whilst we were there we saw 3 of 4 seasons, blistering sunshine, cloud and wind and rain.

The main sqaure is fantastic covent garden esq. but i'd say much more beautiful!! everything happens here!

We went to the Wawel Castle, a beautiful place worth a visit, a short walk from the square. Also we went on a river boat trip, not a great deal to see from the boat but a good chance to recuperate. Also we went to Schindler's Factory, 17 zloty each but i'd say money well spent if you take time to read everything.

Eating is something i'm good at so we decided to try some traditional polish fayre, Pierogy, very nice I had it filled with meat and it was filling. Also we tried an italian behind the catherdral Czokpy was it's name a quaint setting.

We got the train back to the airport at 19 zlt each quite simple from the main station.

All in all a great place to go on a city break with plenty to do and it is safe!!

Room Tip: Room 20 was our room had a double bed and ensuite
