    There's nothing more really that a hostel can offer. Clean, spacey, great common area / kitchen, nice stuff. The location is also great, it's quiet and also not far from the city centre.

    The BEST hostel I have ever stayed in. Clean, helpful staff, well-maintained facilities, fully equipped kitchen and very decent breakfast! What would one need more while travelling? Totally worth it.

    The place is really good, comfortable, clean. The kitchen has everything to make something to eat. There are juice and coffee. The bedroom is spacious and wide. The bathroom is clean, even in the morning or at night. The staff is friendly and helpful. I have no complain to make.

    The best hostel I have ever stayed at. Exceptionally clean, good location, great breakfast and helpful staff. The breakfast is huge and is included in the room price. All beds are made upon arrival and you don’t even need to strip them when you leave. Great security with lockers throughout the dorms. A nice and pleasant atmosphere. Couldn’t thank the staff enough for their help and organising local tours for me. Highly recommend for the next upcoming traveller.

    It has been a really nice stay! Very close to the old town and with all facilities nearby. Distance from the airport just 25 minutes by direct bus. Bus stop is in front of the hostel. I will come back!

    Very nice and comfy hostel, I recommend you this one if you want to stay for a couple of days in Krakow! I found the location good as you are near Wawel Castle and you can reach Kazimierz (Jewish quarter) from there. Also bus stop just at the foot of the building (for Wieliczka Salt Mine, also Zakopane). Beds were really nice (we all know mattresses are often very thin) and I felt very safe. Large lockers. Free breakast (with 3 options), which is nice to start the day. Nice staff too.

    Very Good

    Booked the 8-bed mixed dorm for one night based on the reviews. I thought the place was ok. Bathroom was clean, the breakfast/lounge room was great, free breakfast was a plus. Big lockers with a key. The room was rather hot all night though, even with the a/c apparently on. I arrived a little late and the door buzzer did not seem to work. Had to call the number provided on this site and was told someone was on their way down to open the door, but it still took a while to get inside.

    The staff was really helpful and very nice. The kitchen was also very clean and nice to hang out in. The beds suck! My mattress rattled like there was keys in it and when I sat up springs poked me.
