Cannot beat the location (I could get wifi at the statue in the main square, it's that close!). Also quite cheap with free breaky is a bonus. Perhaps not as easy to meet people as in other hostels, but I really enjoyed my stay.

Best hostel I have stayed in. Magda who works at reception was really brilliant. She was great for telling you what nice restaurants, activities and pubs around Krakow. A very nice girl! Showers are fantastic in this place and location is right on the square. The beds in the dorms were great.

Awesome hostel! Great location and excellent vibe. We walked in and ten minutes later we had a big group of travelers going to dinner. It's located right on the square with awesome views. There can be a bit of ambient noise at night but it's no biggy. This place was reccomended to me by another backpacker earlier in the trip and he was spot on.

My first visit to Krakow, and I couldn't have stayed in a better location. My bright and spacious twin room on 4th (top) floor overlooked the old town square. There are plenty of showers and toilets. On the top floor there is a large dining room/kitchen/tv lounge. Continental breakfast is included in the price, plenty of it, and is good value. Tea and coffee is free all day. Worth filling up on. Staff very helpful, reception manned 24 hours. They can book sightseeing tours for you.

Loved it! Perfectly located, clean, several community areas to meet other travellers. Will come back again.

A pretty decent hostel. It's on top of a restaurant, so there's a lot of stairs. I dont really know about the atmosphere, since when we were there, it was almost only polish people, who didn't really talk to us, and then the next day a party of 24 english guys on a stag-night-trip-thing. But either way, the location is great, and there's free breakfast and a pretty large common area - on the 4th floor though. (more stairs) (we are lazy people)

It was very cozy and on a really good place. On the 4th floor there where like 8 wc and 5 showers, the staff was nice and really helpful. We came like around 8 in the morning too book ourselves in and the room wasn't ready, but we could leave our backpacks in the lobby and get a breakfast at the 4th floor. The breakfast was really poor and we always went out to get our self something.

Cracow hostel has an amazing location close to the train station and my window overlooked the main square which was magical! Free breakfast and friendly staff at 24 hour reception. I was there at the start of June and it was a very quiet hostel, didn't offer many opportunities to meet others. But great facilities and location.

I was 2 nights there. For my all was fantastic!We were scare because we shared room with 18 persons but the room was really big and spacious and all of us were quite comfortable. There is a free locker in each bed. The location is absoltly perfect. All the personal is very nice and helpful. The hostel is clean, the sheets are new and clean. If I have to say something bad is the breakfast is maybe scarce. If I back to Krakow, I'll sleep in Krakow hostel for sure. 100% recommended.

Great staff like Ana and Monica, super helpful and self catering facilities were excellent. Toilets were clean and hot water was available all the time. However, maybe because i was unlucky there was a huge group of kids/ adults staying and they made so much noise! Especially the adult men till late at night obviously drunk and shouting. Maybe the hostel should enforce some rules for the convenience pf other guests... But this should not detract from this great hostel.

Highly recommended! Location is right at the heart of Rynek Główny (the main square of Old Town), while Kazimierz (Jewish quarter) is within short walking distance. The main train and bus stations (Dworzec Główny) are a 10-15 minute walk away. Good for travellers who prefer peace and quiet. Staff at the 24/7 reception are courteous and helpful, while rooms and bathrooms are very clean. Lockers are provided, though valuables can also be left at the reception desk for safekeeping.

Good place for party - it's at the central square. Everything was ok, but you should know, that it's possible be very noisy during all the night.

Excellent location, helping staff - you will be met with smile and readiness to help. Fair price for this kind of hostel. No gimmicks, flying dragons and golden toilets. It has got all you need, cook or store food. Be ready to conquer the stairs.
