    It was rather uncomfortable without being able to lock many of the doors, especially when the lockers weren't big enough but otherwise lovely area, good facilities, very clean and lovely staff!

    Great location 10 minutes walking distance from the main bus station and 15 minutes walking distance from Old Town’s Market Square. The bathrooms were a bit of a weird situation. Anyone could walk in while you were taking a shower, so I just tried to take them at odd hours. Also, the walls seemed pretty thin, because in the room I could hear everything going on in the kitchen and at reception. Probably perfect for just one overnight visit to Krakow because of its location.

    A localização e a internet são os pontos altos do hostel. A limpeza deixa um pouco a desejar e o staff (tirando o senhor que nos atendeu na chegada) não faz mta questão de ser cordial.

    The rooms were very clean. The shower and bathrooms were uncomfortable. There were no locks on the doors to get into the shared bathroom and people could come in and out of the bathrooms while you were showering. There was a chain to keep the shower door closed but there was very little privacy. The whole hostel shares two bathrooms. Additionally, they charge you for holding your luggage.

    Very friendly staff. Some of the other guests were acting aggressively and I would've hoped for a faster reaction. But otherwise we had a nice stay. Maybe the showers could have some locks or separation from girls and boys' showers.

    The rooms are spacious and pleasant. The kitchen is big and well equipped. The hostel is very well placed in the city! The bicycle parking is located in the inner court which is opened onto the street. There are big doors closed at 10 pm though. The showers are little weird at the first time. It is unfortunate that some people amongst the staff are rather cold. Fortunately, the majority is cheerful and provide full of good advices about the places to visit or the restaurants if you ask them.

    The staff was very nice and helpful, but I wouldn’t stay here again. The front door was never locked, although someone was at the desk 24 hours a day. The bathrooms had mold on the ceilings and didn’t feel clean. The bunk beds were very loud with every movement. It’s a very small hostel.

    When I booked my stay, I was aware the place will be basic, dated with limited facilities. But was not aware that I will find it so filthy. Hygiene is appalling. Good location though.

    To get in all you do is press the buzzer and you’re let in, the receptionist barely checks who’s entering, it could be anyone. No lock on rooms, personal lockers very small and some beds had to locker. Minimal security. Bedrooms were nice but bathrooms were awful. No privacy only a translucent dirty shower curtain, with no locks so anyone using the loo could come in due to being mixed gender. Bag storage was a cleaning cupboard with no lock. Documents never checked. Ok for 1 night, good location

    Good location. However, kitchen and toilet/shower facilities were below par. The kitchen is extremely small, no room to cook anything. The layout of the toilet/shower facilities means you have to walk through the common area to reach them and even once inside the showers, you have no privacy due to no locks on some showers. There is no private space to change due to fact the toilets adjoin the shower rooms. The cleanliness of the showers left a lot to be desired.
