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.


A well run, first rate hostel. Stay here.


Cracow hostel can be a little bit hard to find when coming for the first time, the entrance is through a restaurant. But once you have checked in, you can fully enjoy its prime location. It has views over the Main Market Square. If you prefer a bit more quietness, you can ask for one of the dorms on the other side. Spacious kitchen and free breakfast. Only downside was that the dorms could have been cleaned/disinfected better. Good experience overall.


Great location! Right in the market square so you won't have to go too far to sightsee. The staff is helpful but not the enthusiastic crowd as they should be. I checked in a little later tired and I didn't even get a hello from the reception lady. "You wanna check in." - No, I'm looking for the zoo! Stairs! No elevator here so make sure if you are not keen to hike up get a room in the lower lever. Brekkie is also a good +


Stay here. But seriously. Such a great deal. You walk out of the building and you are at the main square!! Beeakfast is great, the facilities were very clean. The weekdays at this hostel seemed quiet but the weekend the atmosphere was amazing.


Great hostel , cant really complain. Communal toilets/showers , 2 per floor. No real issues with queues etc for toilet but would prefer a private toilet/shower in room. Would recocomend this hostel


Nice place. Great staff !!!


My friend and I LOVED this hostel. The location could not have been better. I felt very safe here! The bed was comfortable and everything was nice. the breakfast was good and included eggs and cheese along with all the carbs usually offered. Very nice staff!

Great location! At Mary's Church is right across the square and my room had a perfect view of it. And get loud at night with people at the square but didn't bother me at all. The beds are old nothing tho you can't handle. It's a great hostel about a 5 minute taxi ride from bus/train station I'd stay again forsure!


would definitely stay here again! GREAT location!! Safe and central:)


Beautiful location ...it is right on the main square. Would stay there again without hesitation.


Amazing location! Staff were really helpful when we had a really late check in. Comfy beds, right on the square of the old town but double glazed windows so it's not at all loud, plus you get the street entertainment in your room! 2 showers and toilets per floor and we didn't have any issues. Basic breakfast included, heaps of restaurants and cafes around. About a 15 min walk from main coach and train station and big shopping centre. Would definately stay here again!
