    Low price but pretty decent facilities. Staff is really nice. The showers were a little dirty sometimes but they got cleaned pretty fast.

    Pros: the most comfy beds and pillows in a hostel ever/great walkable location/near coffee and food/great value for the money/near bus station Cons: paper thin walls, you can hear everything every morning and night/TINY rooms can’t even open your suitcase on the floor/top bunks are so close to bottom you can’t sit up/not a very inviting lounge area to hang out in Overall: just ok but good for price

    Clean hostel located close to the central square. A little too large for my liking but has everything you need for a quick stop over in Krakow.

    Good location halfway between jew quarters and main square. Great self serve breakfast and clean showers. Very helpful staff on where to find cheap traditional polish food. Very unsociable atmosphere though

    Room was a 12 bed dorm and the beds folded out from the wall. The room was too small for a 12 bed and the beds were small for a single. Good location and value for money, would consider staying here again as it had good facilities and free breakfast.

    Probably some of the comfiest beds I've used in a hostel. This would be a great place if you know exactly what you want to do in Krakow or are traveling with a large crew. The facilities were great, showers always clean and convenient laundry available. Not much activity within the hostel though and the common room is more of a cafeteria making meeting people as a solo traveller harder. The breakfast was tasty though

    No Frills is exactly how I would describe this; the rooms were very sterile - and the entire hostel lacked energy. I am very grateful I had a friend traveling with me, or else it would have been very lonely. The guests at the hostel did not create a warm or welcoming environment (and I assumed it was a one off when reading the reviews) - it wasn't. Breakfast: did not have it - they do not have proper coffee (instant coffee is available). Bathrooms were clean and each had its own shower.

    The atmosphere was very sterile, with people just using the common area (which felt like a horrible school canteen) to work on their laptops with their headphones on. Not inviting at all. The man who checked me in was also very rude. He spoke in rushed, mumbled English and got angry when I couldn't understand him, and snapped at me when I didn't hand over my ID quickly enough. Other members of staff were much more friendly, however, and were incredibly obliging. The hostel is also very clean.
