My first hostel experience ever! It was surprising awesome! The location was perfect and easy to find my way around.


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.


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.
