Everything was great, i would just have one comment about the fridge. We were nor sure what we could have taken for breakfast. In other hostels they had a marker so people can write their name on personal stuff in the fridge.


As always great place to stay.Staff are so helpful and friendly.Really good atmosphere, cleanest hostel ever and great value for money- breakfast included. On the top of that ,they have own bar on site - nothing else to add up :) . Highly recommend this hostel ...

Just the place to stay in Kraków!!! Very near to the city center, clean, and the staff is sooo helpful. Next time i´m sure i´ll go there again. Na zdrowie!!


They have fantastic staff. Always friendly and helpful. We felt like they belong to our party. Great and free facilities. Definitely will be recommending your hostel and will visit you again. To the owners: Look after your staff, they really do a great job! Marcin, ex hotel manager

Can't say much about this hostel that hasn't already been said. You won't find one better in Kraków, or possibly anywhere. A great experience made even better by the people that work there.

An extra drunk person slept in our room, but it was great other than that awkward situation.


Staff didn't give us any information and didn't make us feel welcome at all. There was also a kid in our room as well as drunk people everywhere. There was also an event at the bar which no one told us about and when we tried to sit in the kitchen (since there was a kid asleep in the room from 8.30) there were no chairs and we had to sit on the floor. Really average experience.


Poor breakfast
