    This was the cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in! It was a bit difficult to find at first, but I’m so glad that I stayed here. The staff was helpful and served a free breakfast every morning. The rooms and bathrooms are sparkling clean and include large lockers with locks for security. Great location too! Only about 10 minutes from the old town.

    I really enjoyed my stay there and would definitely come back if around Krakow again. The place is bright, new, well decorated and sparkling clean and only a short walk from the city centre. The dorms have each a bathroom, each bed comes with a spacious locker (I could even fit my massive backpack in!). Bonus point : I left around 4:30 in the morning and there were some breakfast ready for me!

    Great hostel! Really nice and accommodating staff- they set up breakfast early for us so we could catch an early flight, and held our luggage all day before we checked in. Very convenient location and really nice facilities as well.

    Hostel is rather small, but all the rooms and facilities are extremely clean. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, ask for recommendations, directions, words in Polish, anything they can answer! Location is also very good, just a little over 5 minute walk to the Old Town, and fantastic view of Wawel Castle.

    The location is great since it's quieter away from the center and 10-15 minute walk away. They keep the place nice and clean and the staff are friendly. Don't like that the room doesn't lock so anyone can walk into the room and did accidentally since it was near a bathroom, at least there are lockers in the rooms. The bed and pillow were not comfortable, my back and neck paid for it, and the individual lights on the beds are way too bright. But it was cheap and breakfast was included.

    We did not actually stay at this hostel. We booked a room roughly 7 months in advance. 3 days before we were meant to arrive we got an email stating that the beds were double booked and we had to go to a different hostel. That being said the hostel was amazing at helping us find another hostel that was a good match for us. We received our deposit back and they offered to pay any Oustanding cost of the replacement hostel were to cost more. For this alone I would recommend this hostel
