I was a little bit disappointed about not having any of the mulled wine advertised on the website! I think it needs a little updating. But the staff were very helpful and caring (even without feeding me wine....)

Cheap and comfortable! Perfect location, close to the old town, train station and the river. Many clubs and pubs just around the corner ;)

This hostel is extremely dirty with rats in the walls that you can hear all night. Enough said. However the breakfast is great in the morning, only redeeming factor of this hostel.


Location of Momotown hostel is great, few minutes walking from city centre. Free parking is available but I reccomend to book it in advance. I didn't do it and since the parking was fully booked I had to pay for parking in the nearby private lot. Wifi is available at the gournd and second floor, so to get internet acces we had to go to the dining room. Also if you need total silence to sleep you might be annoyed by the vivid night-life in the streets. But at all, it is great value for the money!

thank you for levaing a review, hope to see you again in Momotown:)


Nice hostel in the Jewish quarter. Very inexpensive. Gets the job done but certainly lacks character and isn't ideal for the solo traveller wanting a social atmosphere. If you want a calm environment in the Jewish quarter at a good price, this is a really great place. If you want a party or social atmosphere I'd go somewhere else.

we're sure that if you would join some of our events you would change your mind;) thanks for the comment!


We booked an 8 bed dorm room and couldn't be happier with our stay. The staff were very polite and helped us with everything and answered all our questions. Our group enjoyed the pub crawl the most. You really get to see bars, pubs, and clubs you wouldn't find on on your own. The only thing that was inconvienit in our room was the wall outlets. Being in an 8 bed dorm I think there was only 4 outlets to charge electronics and phones, etc. So if you have a large group bring an extension cord.

thx, we're extremely happy that you enjoyed our pub crawl and had a good time in Krakow, regards!


The hostel had a strange vibe, sort of like the hostels in Amsterdam where all the weed tourists go to. It wasn't clean either, I didn't want to take a shower there. When we went to have breakfast in the morning it was difficult to maneuver around the 2 cleaning ladies who seemed annoyed while they were washing the dishes. However, we did only stay for one night so maybe we didn't get the best sense of the atmosphere, other people seemed to be satisfied.

Probably you are right that sometimes spending only one night in some place might not be enough to get to know it. Our hostel seems to have positive vibe, which we would like you to experience. Also, joining some of our events would make you feel that it's a lot of fun for sure:)
