Check-in at 1 p.m. instead of 8 a.m. on the contrary of what it is written on the online tickets. Wifi quite often didn't work at forth floor.

Couldn't recommend a hostel higher

Excellent value for money due to having a good kitchen, showers and common room. Location right on the main square, which was a bit nosy at night but you get the atmosphere. The only downside was that there was only a tiny window in our dorm meaning the room was very hot. All in all would definately recommend.

Wifi was a little dodgy and some days couldn't access it at all! Fantastic location and the staff were very helpful. Quite loud at night and in the morning if you are placed at the front of the building.

Good hostel with lovely staff. Breakfast was not the best but who cares. Location perfect, easy to walk anywhere in Krakow. Room was clean.

Please do something for the smell of cooked food in room 18! ask the restaurant if they can filter the air or something! It is the only bad thing we found in the hostel, keep up the good work!

I really enjoyed staying here. A 100% scored is just about right, everything about the place makes it the best option while staying in Cracow. Nice place, nice people, can't find a better location!

Brilliant location literally on the square. Staff were so friendly and extremely helpful, always willing to provide information and answer questions. Would highly recommend!!!

Good hostel whether you want a quiet night or a party. It is a very big hostel, has several dorms, but be prepared to walk up several flights of stairs (no problem for me, but might be for some). Location is excellent (Main square). One negative aspect as a solo traveller was the fact that several big groups stay here so they keep to themselves. My booking was double booked however the staff were very helpful and found alternative accommodation for me at their nearby sister hostel.

Stayed in 12 bed mixed room. The room was ridiculously hot with only one tiny round window for fresh air. The staff might set you up for failure. It seems they don't care too much. Breakfast was good and the location was amazing.

Great place, clean, friendly, very accommodating and you really can't get a better location. If you want to sleep, book a 6 bed or less room since it tends to draw people with a calmer quieter vibe. Plenty of toilets and showers. Wifi was a bit sketchy but they had plenty of computers to use. Breakfast was great, you could make your own eggs! I would highly recommend this place especially to a solo traveler. It was very easy to meet people. One of my favorite hostels!

Cracow Hostel was perfectly located in the main old square! It was close to everything with lots to do. My biggest complaint was that the showers were in the bathrooms and there were only two per floor! Also the directions to get to the hostel from the train station was very confusing. Otherwise I met great people and had a great time!

It has what you need for staying a couple of night and a good breakfast, but maybe with the same amount of money some hostels have better facilities

Very lovely hotel, directly off the main square. I stayed in the 18 bed dorm and had the best time with everyone there! The beds were comfortable, clean, and the rooms stayed a comfortable temperature (for mid July!). The workers at the desk were not as helpful as they should've, they were more interested in playing on the computer. But overall, I would highly recommend.

Without a doubt, this is the best Hostel I have ever stayed in, arriving late on a very wet Wednesday, we were instantly made to feel at home, the staff are ever so friendly and helpful, it is literally located at the centre of this amazing city, so location wise, it's perfect. Facilities are spot on, showers are hot, there's only one washer but it washes so what more do you want! Honestly, it's fantastic. Dirt cheap too. I'll be back soon.

Top location stayed in a 16 bed dorm. It was a tad tight but not a issue for me. Our room was hot at night. I think because of the kitchen underneath. Made some great friends during my stay here. But the hostel felt empty even though it was full of people.
