    This hostel was great. Awesome location between the Jewish Quarter and the main square. The staff was the best part, always making sure we had everything we needed. The free breakfast was awesome. If you're coming to Kraków, stay at the Express hostel.

    everything was fine. it’s really big so there were a lot of school trips and families there. it’s not the best for solo travelers but it’s a decent hostel.

    Express Hostel has one of the most comfiest beds I've slept on in a hostel even better than some hotels. If don't come for the great staff who are super helpful, then you should come here for the amazing beds!! Back to the staff, they are so lovely, welcoming and always up for a good chat. the city was booked up due to a concert and I was going to be without a bed and one of the staff offered her house to save my arse, how amazing! Excellent breakfast including egg and cheese. I'll be be back!

    It was very clean and modern, and the facilities were all great. There were also plenty of bathrooms so rarely had to wait. The only downside is that it is quite large and there is no proper common area so it’s incredibly hard to socialise. Maybe not ideal if you are a younger solo traveller, as a lot of the people staying here appeared to be older and on business trips.

    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

    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

    My stay at Express Hotel was really great. The location of the hostel was great and the staff was so welcoming and nice. The bathrooms on the first floor had a stench that lingered for as long as my stay. I would say that was one of the only downsides.

    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.
