    Slawek was a fantastic host, gave a lot of good recommendations, and the other staff were all very friendly. Location and facilities were great, and the staff put out free donuts (donuts!) and sandwiches. Would absolutely stay here again.

    Hands down the cleanest hostel I have ever visited. Helpful, friendly staff available 24 hours, good showers, useful kitchen. My only complaint is that there was only one working power strip for all our phones, so we just had to trust no one in the room would steal our phones when charging them at night. Would be nice if each bed had an outlet. But even with this, I would definitely visit again!

    ARS is close to Wawel, cheap and the staff are very helpful. They helped me with my polish and when my phone broke let me use their computer - they really couldn't be more welcoming! If I come back to Kraków I'll definitely stay here again :)

    Had a great stay at ARS hostel. The owner was an absolute sweetheart and didn't charge us for the extra night we accidentally booked online - so kind of him and a lovely surprise. Location was brilliant as it was right by the Jewish Quarter (very up and coming) and not far from the Old Town. Would recommend, and thanks for the great stay!

    The staff at this hostel are amazing and amazing location. Only downside is the lockers weren’t working but it wasn’t a big problem because the hostel is very secured from the outside.

    The website didn't have a check-in time (unlike other hostels on my trip) so when I arrived at 7am (which was the time I said when I booked) and was told I couldn't check-in until 2pm I wasn't very happy having 7 hours to kill. On the plus side I walked around the castle and old town with no tourists about. The website says you can pay with a card...I couldn't it was cash only.

    clean, good location, nice bathrooms but that was about it. Beds weren't great and they were super creaky. There was nothing in the kitchen to cook with except a microwave. Common room smelt really bad. Super weird security system, main door was always open but then there was another door that you could only get buzzed into so you had to wait for someone everytime but they let everyone in without even checking so don't really get the point? Absolutely no atmosphere. Ok for the price though
