Very well located 2 minutes away from the main market square in Krakow, 10 minute walk from the main bus//train station. Quite noisy in the morning due to it's central location. Simple breakfast cereals provided.


This hostel is very well located, very close to the city centre and main square and within walking distance of Wawel Castle and only a 15 minute maximum walk to the main train station! The bathrooms were difficult although the idea of having he shower and toilet together in the same room is in theory good, when there is only one toilet and shower it means waiting about until free... they weren't the cleanest either! However, for the price of the hostel I wouldn't really complain!


The staff was really helpful! Though the time I arrived was already over twelve in the midnight, she was still willing to share all the infos and nice restaurants, foods in Krakow. Very warm place, nice staff and absolutely perfect location, recommend to all.

Although cleanliness and room equipment is not astonishing, if you want to spend a night in a lively heart of Cracow, then Krakow Backpackers Hotel is a great pick. Staff is extremely helpful and friendly and the location is just fantastic.

2 toilet bowls (NOT TWO WASHROOMS )for the whole hostel.smelly rooms. wore linens. non noise proof bedroom doors that absorbs all sound from.common roon. so called kitchen without stove. WORST HOSTEL EVER.

Fantastic location and incredibly clues to the main square. I was able to have a private room which was perfect for a female traveling solo.

The place seems to be a little rundown - the porch is a bit thrashy, the walls are no longer clean, some bulbs have not been replaced and the staff don't seem to care about the poor light (eg. in the kitchen area); the toys attached to the room keys are really dirty by now. If you don't mind all this and it's ok for you to have just milk and flakes for free breakfast - it's a cheap place in a really good area.


Very friendly staff and excellent location. The hostel is close to simply everywhere. In addition, people there are really helpful. They even provided me some warm clothes as I wasn't well prepared for a cold day in Krakow. That's really far beyond satisfaction.


Awesome hostel and the best staff ever. I had great time there and felt like home. Ideal go make new friends.totally recommended.


Excelent hostel, amazing staff and atmosphere. Will totally return!


Awesome hostel, really comfy and with a great location


The hostel isn't really clean, but is extremely well located, have a good atmosphere and the staff are really friendly! Was a good experience.


The hostel has a good location and really helpful staff. The cleaning isn't the best but its worth the price.


Wonderful location: situated on a busy commercial street and it's only 5 minutes away on foot to get to the main square. There's only one bathroom for the entire hostel; thankfully it is very very small... I'd guess there are only two dorms there. Another thing about the bathroom: COLD WATER. Nevertheless, it is a welcoming environment, staff is very kind, there's free breakfast (cereal), good free Wi-Fi, a microwave and a fridge in the dining room (no stove though).
