I want to give this place 5 stars because it is perfectly located and well maintained and the staff are great. But the top floor where most rooms are tends to attract groups of loud drunk backpackers who get back at 4am and try to have long giggling conversations in the room. Also, the rooms are very hot in the summer and the hostel does not supply ac or even fans, which makes sleeping very sweaty and uncomfortable. So I cannot recommend it for summer because of that.

The staff was INCREDIBLE- they were so accommodating and kind. They agreed to move us to a different room after a group of men in our hostel returned at 4AM, turned on the lights, and were yelling. They also set up breakfast 2 hours early for us because I had an early train to catch.

Ideal location. Great staff. Only concern is no locker to store your backpack, but you do get a small locker. Would definitely stay again.

I spent there only one night, but I strongly recommend this hostel. Nice atmosphere, perfect location, breakfast included, the only flaw that it was really hot in the room, small window is not enough, especially during summer.

Great atmosphere and great location.

The hostel is right on the main square, so if you get a room facing the square it is quite loud during the night. No AC or fans. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

The hostel is literally right on the main square in the middle of everything. There is a locked gate to get into the hostel and they provide lockers so the place is very secure. The staff gave us the wrong information a few times which was not helpful, but the facilities overall are clean and nice.

Extremely hot in the rooms! Also depending on which room you get it can be very noisy because of the restaurant downstairs. Overall you cannot get a better location in Kraków!!

The hostel has a perfect location in the old town square. Spacious Room but they have so much light that you end up waking up at 4 am. Good breakfast. Staff was helpful. The best hot shower I took in my entire holiday!! My only complaint is they should inform they have several stairs since I was carrying a heavy suitcase. I would recommend this place and stay again :)

This was probably one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at! It was an amazing atmosphere with the staff being super nice and the accommodations itself was fantastic. I would 100% recommend it! There is also the added bonus of being right on the square which is FANTASTIC!

You really can't beat the location - at all. The staff are super friendly and really helpful with anything you need. The kitchen facilities are great and breakfast was delicious :) We will definitely be back!

Can't beat the central location. A lot of steps to climb but worth it for the view of the square. Great price.

A good hostel with a brilliant location and helpful staff. Located right on the main square meaning easy access to most main tourist attractions it is also nearby to some bars and clubs. The rooms were on the smaller side however; the bathroom facilities were cleared daily and they have computers for use free of charge.

Excellent location cant get any better than this, it was right in the middle of the old town square. The receptionist with the blonde hair was very helpful and provided a lot of tips on places to go. The dark haired girl was not too interested in her job, i mostly saw her lazying about.

Excellant location right in the main square! However, the hostel lacked any real atmosphere! Would not recommend for young travellers wanting to party in Krakow. Would recommend staying at a 'party hostel' if you are looking to explore Krakow's nightlife! Kitchen was well equipped and free breakfast is always a bonus! Great if you want a good nights sleep and aren't massive on the nightlife!

Great price and AMAZING location! However, the lack of air conditioning was brutal.
