Neat and cozy hostel in the heart of Krakow. Located in an old building in Kazimierz, arguably the most authentic and vibrant district in town, it's within walking distance from most of Krakow's attractions. Although some might not enjoy the 2nd flood no elevator location, for most it won't be a problem. All the facilities are there, the rooms are nice and clean, the staff is friendly, responsive and fluent in English, and the common hall is often full of cool people to hang out with.
It's a direct tram ride from the train station to the hostel. The hostel itself is not far away from the Wawel Castle, the river and the Jewish quarter. The stair is a bit of climb if you stay in the upper floors. But everything else is very satisfactory.
Great hostel for what we paid. The breakfast is in a cafe across the street which is a bit odd; all the usual but with hot dogs... We were also able to check in early which was great after a long night train and a tram fine.
A very cozy hostel with helpful staff. The only small problem is absence of elevator. and of course the prices are bit above the Krakow-hostel average. strongly recommended.
