The hostel is clean and cheap, very quiet (seemed like we were the only ones staying there!). Our room was very small and the window was facing a wall, which isn't too nice, but then we were just looking for a secure and quiet place to stay, close to the center, and that's exactely it! The people working there are very kind. I would recommand the place as we enjoyed our staying.

Very helpful staff. Very very close to the main square, yet far enough off the street (it's located off of an inner courtyard) that you don't get too much noise. I would certainly recommend.

The location of the hostel is good. Its almost in the market square, the main attraction in Krakow. The rooms feel very creepy and old. The washrooms were not clean, bit of a mess. Although the deal was cheap and value for money. If they would have taken more care on the cleanliness side, it would have been a good hostel.


The location was very central and the staff was nice. However, we did have problems with hot water in the showers one morning.


Got free towls which was a bonus. Great location only 30sec from old town square and 10min to main train station. Good resturants and cafes close by.


Nice place, great location but it was pretty empty when I was there, not their fault though.
