    I loved staying at Ginger Hostel! My room was very clean and the bathroom shower was nice and powerful. It’s not super sociable but I did hang out with the girls in my dorm :). Only thing is the mattresses are quite springy. Staff are so helpful and friendly. Breakfast is included and it’s good! Location is right next to the castle which is lovely- also next to the bus stop which can take you to the salt mines, the airport and to the main train station - very useful :D.

    Comfortable beds, nice lockers and definitely the nicest bathroom I’ve ever had in a hostel. Also a great free breakfast! Definitely a great place to be able to relax after a long day exploring.

    Super clean, nice, chilled out quieter hostel to stay in which was perfect for what I was looking for. Really nice showers & bathrooms & felt really secure up on the 5th floor. Really friendly staff & great breakfast buffet. Really appreciated the lockers too as they were huge & a lock was provided. Felt really comfortable & at home. Also liked the location as was easy to walk to the main areas from there.

    Cleanest and most comfortable hostel I've stayed at. I stayed in a female dorm with an en suite and the amenities were great! The staff are also really helpful. The hostel is about a 15 minute walk to the Old Town, but it wasn't much of a hassle. It was quiet, but I did meet people in my dorm.

    Loved my stay here - killer location just a short walk from Wawel Castle (5 minutes) and about 15 to Old Town. Showers and rooms were clean and tidy - appreciates the big locking cabinets where I could keep my bag. Would prefer that the room itself locked but wasn’t a big deal at all. Staff was Incredibly helpful with all arrangements (we booked a tour to Auschwitz-Birkenau). Free breakfast was yummy with lots of options. Would totally recommend!

    Very friendly staff, they let us leave our bags at the hostel as we arrived much earlier than check in. Very clean rooms and bathrooms and working air conditioning (thank god). Breakfast was a nice addition. Only about 15 minute walk from old town square.

    Nice little hostel. Location was great! The Vistula river was a 5 minute walk away with old town no longer than a 30 minute walk. Facilities were clean and the atmosphere was pleasant. Breakfast was accommodating and staff were friendly!

    Enjoyed staying here as I met some lovely people in my dorm who I sent the majority of my trip with. Good location being able to walk everywhere needed within 20mins. However, the breakfast left much to the imagination along with the facilities. Could also do with a better instruction, personally from the train station, as I spent a long time trying to find the correct, bus as it wasn't in the actually station like suggested. I don't think this was worth the money. but still enjoyed my stay.
