I had a brilliant time at the hostel, however it would have been nice if I had known before my arrival that I would be relocated to another hostel for one night.

We had an absolutely amazing stay at Ars Hostel when we were in Krakow! The entire staff was very hospitable the entire time and helped us out a lot! The rooms were very nice and clean and very safe also! The location is fantastic, within walking distance to the square where we spent most of our time while in Krakow! I just can't say enough about how great the staff was and the hostel in general!

Such a warm welcome we got from the staff! Wodka was served with a large smile on a daily basis - something i hadn't experienced before. The location is great, everything is in walking distance, it's a neat place to stay with socializing facilities. There weren't many visitors when we were there but the staff made up for that :)) Definitely recommended!!

The staff were very nice and very helpful. They helped to book a tour to Auschwitz so all that we had to do was bring payment. The location is perfect. It's a small walk away from all the bars and from the sights in Krakow, but far enough away so it is quiet at night. Overall the stay was excellent.

Wow!! My friends and I had the most amazing time!! The staff is truly there to please you and help with anything you need: travels, laundry, etc. We got to know the other residences very well also because of the relaxed and inviting atmosphere! If you come to Krakow this is the place to stay!

Thank you for "leaving a note" saying that the hostel was closed. After a very long and nerveousing trip to Krakau we arrived tired at the place where we should have stayed. In stead of a warm room and some upchearing coffee we recieved a note that said "the hostel is closed, you should go to an other hostel nearby". Maybe you could ring us up or send us an e-mail so we could look for something else, instead we stayed at the recommended hostel (on the note). And this hostel was horrible.

Great hostel with amazing staff! Got something for everyone whether youre after a quiet stay or up for meeting other travellers. Clean bathrooms, comfy common area, breakfast included, great location... Only downfall was the beds/mattresses could do with an upgrade. Would definitely stay here again though :)

Staff were lovely and very friendly. Got us involved with other people at the hostel with games. Able to come and go as you please. So you don't need to worry about curfews. Location brilliant for exploring the city centre. About 10min walk to main square. Modest facilities with lovely living area for socialising.

This is great place! Good value for money. Free shot of vodka every evening ;D:D:D. They're serving great coffee as well. Very friendly and helpful staff, best location: just 5 minutes from the Wawel Castle. Lovely common room. I would recommend this hostel to anyone!
