“Cheap and not really Chic, but will do :)”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2012

This hostel is located in an old tennat house reasonably close to the Old Town- some 15 min walk. Area around is not spectacular, including a shabby massage parlour/brothel and some bars. Rooms are located on different levels of the house, reception and a small kitchen/hangout place is accessible 24/7 - a working computer and a fridge is available to everyone. The service was very nice and helpful. The room was small and furnished with the weirdest set of junk I have seen in a long time- yet quite all right and the bed was decent. The bathroom and toilet were separate rooms on the corridor area, clean and holding a surprising falling apart shower cabin. Apart from the holes in the floor and self-opening doors, the hostel was quite comfortable and functional. I only wish it was cheaper.

We arrived as a party of 2 hoping for a private double room but unfortunately they had no availability but instead offered us a 6-bed dorm for the private use of the 2 of us at a cheaper rate than a room for 2! Now that's service.

The receptionist was very helpful in aiding us to plan our future travels and the whole communal area was a great place to chill out with a free cup of tea or coffee and use of the various computers. The whole place was incredibly clean and the bathroom had a massage shower which was just brilliant. The location is about a 5-minute walk from the main square so less noisy but also in an area with good restaurants and only 15-minutes from the train and bus station.

Very nice and clean bathrooms and toilettes. Kind staff. Good common area with an well equiped kitchen.
However, the staff gave some wrong information about Krakow public transportation (which led me to an unfortunate journey through Krakow's suburbs at midnight). They also did not know much about current activities in the city.

This nice Hostel is situated in an old building not far from the main market place . The bathrooms on the floor are very clean. Also the room was very clean and during the night there is no traffic on the street.
The chill-out lounge is calm an decorated homely-youthfully. While drinking a coffe, one can get in touch with other guests. :)

I spend a nice time there and in Krakow. :)

Great place in the heart of the city with a wonderful knowledgable staff and fresh comfortable rooms. Recommended any time of the year, Pedro and Karolina make the hostel an awesome experience. The commons chill out room is pure peace and a lot of fun. I will return for sure
