Value for money! Great place with very helpful and friendly staff, family atmosphere.
Large and clean rooms. Close to the city center. Nice garden area. breakfast and laundry is included in the price. Breakfast is basic but good with sandwiches and cereals.
There is free WiFi, 24 hour reception and self service hot drinks
I would definitely recommend!

Stayed 2 nights in a 6 person dorm and the bathroom was new and renovated but the room itself was very dated. Light was so dark and dim I could hardly see. No lifts so lugging my backpack up 4 flights of stairs was horrible. Around 20 min walk to main square so the location wasn't really good. Small breakfast area, wouldn't recommend staying here

Booked a weekend break to Krakow and came across Deco Hostel. Clean rooms, friendly staff and great facilities. Short walk into main market square. Don't be put off by the bad reviews, location and rooms are great in my opinion.

Deco is located on dirty suburbs of the centre. To the market square you have to walk around 25 minutes, passing the number of grey and sad streets. Surrounding areas are horrible depressing and loud - there is a very big and noisy street next to the hostel building.
Rooms design is very interesting and old fashioned. That's the only advantage of Deco Hostel. Rooms are almost unfurnished - there is no proper wardrobes and storage facilities. In my room was only a bed and a chair! For the first sight room was pretty clean, but I discovered lot of dust on the bed frame, windows, and on the floor. The common room was even worse - very dirty and dusty!
Breakfast was included, but I got only one poor sandwich and cereals.
Staff was not helpfull at all. The chambermaid didn't speak english! I asked the reception to send somebody to clean my ensuite bathroom, what they refused to do... the only thing they did, was taking the rubbish.
After I came home I discovered I am missing several things - mostly make-up cosmetics, perfums and some cheap jewellery. It is hard to belive for me I simply left it in the room, because I carefully check it before I left.

Spent New Year in Krakow with six friends. We all had a superb stay at Deco Hostel. I've spent a lot of time in hotels on my travels and this was by far the best I've ever stayed at.

The rooms were quirky and lovely (some even come with balconies). Communal facilities were superb; free wifi, free towels and a free laundry-load added to the comfort.
The hostel-bar is brand new and unique - not to mention cheap. You can even get discounted pizza delivery to the bar!

Location-wise, the hostel is convenient - 15mins walk to the market square, galleria and the airport bus drops you about 50 metres from the hostel (for a mere 3.40pln).
