    The location is perfect, right in old town. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The bed was comfortable enough, but the floor in the dorm room was very squeaky. The staff provided a lock for the storage under the bed. The kitchen smell was a bit strong when others were cooking (not great ventilation). The view from the dorm room was a perfect picture of the theater. Overall I was very happy with my stay at Woodpecker Hostel and I would consider staying there again.

    Very nice hostel with easy access and amazing location. Only downside was the shower not being able to be suspended from high up so you had to hold the shower head the whole time but the bathrooms were super nice and clean apart from that.

    Woodpecker is a great little hostel, ideal for solo or travellers looking for a chilled out visit to Krakow. The staff were super helpful, friendly, and that atmosphere was the same with guests. The beds were solid and comfy, and offering free padlocks at reception felt more secure than other hostels. However, unfortunately the bathroom facilities really let the hostel down.Having one shared bathroom is fine, but be aware you'll have no privacy. Also, please mount the shower heads on the wall?

    Good location and the staff at the front desk were nice. However my bed was pretty uncomfortable, and I was woken up really early by loud noises on the street below. I also really didn’t like that you have to walk through the kitchen to get to the bathroom.
