We stayed in the apartment, which was very large and spacious. The hostel is not located far from the river which is great place to stroll and 5mins from the castle. It is a further 10min walk from there to the main square but it is a nice walk. The area feels very safe and the staff are very friendly and the reception offers a lot of advice on what there is to do. Would definitely recommend the Secret Garden Hostel!!

Very good value for money. Good location and the place seemed very clean. Staff weren't particularly helpful but for the price couldn't really complain... One thing though, this place has a very acute bed bug problem!!!! I was completely covered in bites.


Everything was pretty ok, hard to complain, clean, calm, good location. But the internet connection even though was available was very very miserable.

I've stayed here three times now and I know I'll stay again when I'm next in Krakow. Rooms are light and airy and tastefully decorated, staff are friendly and very helpful and the breakfast is always good. The location's not excellent, but it's still only 15 mins walk to the station and about the same to Rynek.
