Great location, our room was lovely and big and staff were great. Only thing was there were some works on a building next to us on a weekday and the builders came around 2-3am to do some work, which was bizarre. It was just on our last night anyway and possibly was a one off. We will return.

We had the new york apartment. It was very nice decorated and has lot of facilities in it but washing machine did not work. We had to use the one that is for the other part of the hostal. For the rest I think os a good choice of you stay here, 5min walk to the old town. Apartment is really spacy with private enviroment.


Marvelous little hostel, located exactly between the Old Town and Kasimierz, both within 5 minutes walking. The interior is stylish and bright (we had the New York room, which opened up to a little outdoor terrace ), the atmosphere is quiet, there is a good kitchen and the internet is lighting fast. Top hostel !


Fantastic location, clean and comfortable! This hostel is almost like a hotel with private rooms! The staff are very helpful! The only downside is that as the hostel has primarily private rooms it lacks a bit of atmosphere but for couples or groups this hostel is perfect!


Friendly stafff and clean room, with goo firm bed


There are A LOT of stairs to the hostel! The receptionist were never at reception. The room was nice but the bed was really hard, and the mattress was thinner than the pillow. We had our own garden area, though which was really nice. Its also really close to the station.
