    I absolutely loved this hostel. I booked for two nights, as I usually do with these places, to see how I like them and go from there. On the first night I was already impressed and confident that this was the place to stay for my five days in Krakow. Firstly, the location can't be beat. It's just a few minute walk from the beautiful old square. The view from my room was of a gorgeous Polish theater. The area was vibrant, but not overly loud. The staff at the hostel were genuine and helpful.

    This was the perfect hostel for me as a solo female traveler. The location was PERFECT and my room even had a gorgeous view of a famous, historic building. Everyone on staff was wonderful and gave great advice and recommendations. The facilities are well-designed and conducive to talking and meeting with other travelers - very open and friendly. I met a lovely collection of fellow travelers and always had someone to talk to, tour with, and share meals with if needed.
