Very nice hostel. The location is PRIME! A walk from the main market, Mariacki Church and like 10 mins walk to the king's castle. Excellent value for money. Free breakfast was simple but good enough.

I rented a 3 bunk room for my own use because of the price. Upon arrival, there were some problems that made my stay less pleasant. There was a washer but no dryer for clothes. Since I didn't have time to hang dry my clothing, I ended up spending a morning at an offsite laundry. My visit was in early March and it was rather cool and rainy. The window in my room couldn't be closed. Fortunately, they provided a space heater which helped. There were two shower stalls and two toilets for men

Not really good except maybe the location. The 3-level bunk beds are ridiculous. What if someone falls down from the highest bunk? That person will almost definitely be injured from that height. They do give free breakfast, although it's just cereal and milk.

Location of the hostel at the border of the city centre is good; three-levels bunks beds are not so bad as it sounds, because the room is quite high. The only problem was old guy long-term living in 9 beds dorm; he has lot of his own stuff in the room and he was arguing with another guests and employees of the hostel; it's really bothering if someone is giving you advices in a way, that you are disturbing him at his home…

Drawbacks: there are clearly stated rules in the hostel, unfortunately they are not enforced properly which causes disruption an is unpleasant for the rest of the guests. This was disappointing as the unruly guests continued with their poor behaviour as there were no consequences. Unfortunate because the the hostel is idealist located just at de edge of the old City near the main square. The facilities are good and clean and the staff are good and helpfull when you have questions.

The hostel is very close to the old town and relatively close to the bus/train station (ca 20 minutes walk). The acommodation is very cheap, there is also a simple breakfast included in the price. So everything was fine, I guess the only negative is that you can't pay by credit card.

Hostel is located in strict city centre and quiet in the same time. Only disadvantage is security: Mixed rooms shared with random people are not locked (you will not get a key) and anyone can enter the hostel because main door are also not locked.

Nagyon tiszta és szép hostel nyílik 24/7. A hostel található rövid sétára a főbb látnivalók, üzletek és éttermek. A közös helyiségben van egy nagy kivetítőn. Ingyenes reggeli volt elég egyszerű, de elegendő.

The location is excellent, close to everything I need. The staff was very nice, especially Mrs Kasia. In general I met nice people there. Facilities are good. Good value for that money.

For the money that I paid I wasn't expecting that much but the staff were so rude and they didn't speak English at all, the location is not too bad but could be little tricky to find it, probably it wasn't a good day for the guy in reception. Very clean though.

Cozy and pleasant, the hostel is situated at less than 5 minutes on foot to the city center. A huge living room permits to enjoy your stay with new people.
