    Great Hostel! Just 15 min walk to the main square and 5 min away from the castle. The staff are really kind and helpfull. Dorms are big and beds are EXTREMELY comfortable. Also AC, wich is great during hot days. Kind of tricky to find the entrance since it's a parking door but not a real problem. Breakfast is actually pretty good. Definitely recommend this place

    Incredible value with amazing breakfast and extremely helpful staff. Located 10 minutes walk form the old town and literally right next to the royal castle. Not a party hostel, but definitely the best place to stay in Krakow

    Such a lovely hostel to stay in. At first it was a little hard to find the door as there is only a small sign. The hostel is very clean and the kitchen is also kept very clean. The beds were comfortable. The free breakfast was really good. It was about a 10/15 minute walk to the main square which isn’t bad and very close to the palace. The staff were helpful when we asked about the salt mine and auschwitz tours. Would definitely recommend staying here.

    Very clean rooms and nice inside but finding the place is very difficult and the front door is located in a somewhat creepy area.
