    Brilliant location, facilities were clean, very easy to get in and out of, there were ten of us in one room so it was a bit cramped but it’s amazing value for money, we did an 8 city trip and this was one in our top two hostels we stayed in. We had zero issues with the place. Highly recommend

    Great place, clean superbly located, and say "excellent value for money" is definitely said not enough. Been to many hostels in Gracie, but this one is top of the shelf!

    Good value for money and great location to the main city centre. The place is within a good walking distance less than 20 mins. Fairly clean, stayed in a 4 bed room for a day and evening. It was very convenient. Would stay there again short term.

    There is no receptionist most of the day so if you arrive early you have. I s**t of getting in. Also there is no luggage room. However the hostel is very clean and the rooms are very nice. It’s really central in krakow so you don’t need to worry about public transport at all. I highly recommend this place cannot beat it for the price, just arrive after 1pm.

    The location was fine, pretty close to the bus station and other turistic places, right in the center of the town. However, the room I stayed was quite small and very hot (it was summer though). There was only 1 ventilador for 4 beds, which didnt solve the problem. Also, they dont give you towels and there's no reception.

    The location is phenomenal. Five min walk to the main square and old town, and it is possible to walk to many other areas such as the Jewish quarter. Easy walk from main train station. Bus stop connection to the salt mine 10 min walk away. We had a balcony in our room. However, there is no lock on the individual dorm rooms. The room and bathrooms were not very clean. There also seemed to be a lot of families and older men staying there. One girl left food in the fridge and someone ate it???
