    I really enjoyed my stay at Ginger Hostel. The breakfast was great, rooms were very clean and comfortable (however pillows a bit too thick) and perfect location.

    The staff is super friendly they helped me call the carrier because I had a problem with my backpack. The breakfast is of very good quality and variety, fruit, granola, fresh bread, coffee, cheeses and delicious cold cuts. The location is perfect near the center and with a beautiful view of the castle, a few meters from the river. The mattress in my bed was old and the springs make me ache back is the only negative thing I found

    Wow! What a hostel. Although it’s a little hard to find as it’s up a building and there isn’t a massive sign - the hostel was fantastic, friendly staff, tidy spacious rooms with AC and a brilliant free breakfast. Could not recommend anymore.

    Really modern with a fully stocked kitchen which we loved! Bedrooms kept really clean and felt safe. Would have liked a better atmosphere but I suppose that comes with luck of the draw. Staff were relatively friendly and helpful.

    에어컨 있지만 틀어달라고 해야하고 꺼 달라고 해야함. 올드타운으로 가려면 좀 걸어야 하지만 매일 바벨성을 볼 수 있어서 좋았음. 세탁 서비스 맡기면 직접 세탁기에 넣고 기다렸다가 건조기 돌려야 하는 거 불편함.

    Hostel is on the top few floors of a multi storey build on very busy main road 20mins walk from centre. Our twin room was in the roof on the road side, so we had no sleep due to vehicle/tram noise all night. The Velux windows needed to be open for the air con pipe to expel hot air so it was either more noise or horrendous heat. We were given a quieter back room on the 2nd night which was great but not free for the next 2 nights so we had no choice but to check out. We went to Kazimierz - fab.
