The hostel entrance is situated in the back of an alley, during the night it is very dark and looks quite dangerous. The bathrooms are very weird and also quite dirty. The rooms are small, any person that moves disturbs everyone in the room. On the other hand, the receptionist are great, they are very polite and can give information about everything in the city. In addition, the breakfast is free, with a lot of different food available.

44 of us have recently had a 4 day stay at the Hostel. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. The rooms were reasonably clean and comfortable. Great location - walking distance to town centre and the Jewish Quarters.
Great Vodka!

First thing you'll notice is the quite hidden entry of the hostel, which in a way is quite comforting. Don't be weirded out, it looks strange how you get inside, but once in you will be warmly welcomed by the person at the reception. Who will explain to you where everything is and how things work. Also you will notice that everything is kept really clean. We had a great stay and would go back. Its super close to the city center and they offer tours for little money (auschwitz being one of them for 130 zlotys= which is like 40-50 $ and include the shuttle transport there and back, plus the tour through the 2 museums, expect to be out for 6-7 hours in total). Bus to the airport leaves nearby. 24 hours service at the reception. Breakfast included

Room Tip: We were on 3rd floor. Didn't see any other rooms. But ours was really comfortable

The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Even though we arrived hours before check in and left hours after check out, they allowed us to store our items. Free wifi and breakfast in the morning. Comfortable common room. Bar downstairs. Fantastic location - it's a 10 min walk to old town and is situated in the Jewish quarter. The rooms weren't anything special, but they were clean. Would definitely recommend. The only negative was that if you plan on going to bed earlier, you can hear the music and people in the bar downstairs. But even that wasn't very bad.

Stayed here a few years ago whilst interrailing, 3 nights in total. Nice wee hostel, clean and cosy. Bar downstairs was great, really cheap alcohol, try the local Polish beers they range from £1-2 and Polish Vodka was great, far better than any Russian stuff! Really close to the centre of town and ther staff are really helpful at letting you know local sites and so on. Don't be expecting luxury but we were fussy and had a great stay.

The couch at the living room is very comfortable and we know about it because we arrived very early and had to wait until the check-in time. They are very flexible cause when leaving we needed to stay for a couple of hours there after the check-out time, and they accepted to have us gently. The rooms are nice, large enough and you have your own locker to keep safe your personal stuff. Finally the location is perfect as the hostel is nearby the main spots and interesting places to visit.
