Very close to city market square. Like maybe 30feet. Room was spacious and had own bathroom. Room was big enough for my four yearly to play and enjoy. The front desk staff was very nice and helpful with finding things to do and places to eat. Price is very reasonable. Had tv in room as well.

The stuff was really neglectful, the bathroom was dirty, the room is fair enough. You can find much better hostels in Krakow, even its location is one of the best. If you need a quite place int the heart of the center with no comfort expectations, it's ok to go there.

I checked into a dorm and there it showed up I was the only one staying there that night. And that was very surprising as the place showed up to be OK. And the price was really law as for that location. Nevertheless, the best about it is the location as it's just at the Main Square. And that is...

Well located and silent. Good kitchen. Friendly staff. That adds up to a good value for your price. They have a few minor issues - kitchen closes at 22 and if you leave anything in the fridge without your name on it they simply throw it away (what happened to "we do not take responsability on..."). Oh, and WiFi is...

(Just joined so this experience dates to May 2014) Location in the centre, friendly staff, quiet, and great value for money. I was there in the middle of the week in May and got to have the 6 bed room to myself for basically two days! Breakfast available was cereal+milk and toast+cheese/cream cheese. Tea was pretty awful but free. Clean...

The best parts of this hotel are its location and value. It is right next to old town square and price per night is quite cheap. The downside is that the rooms are very tiny and the bed is horrible. The mattresses were old and stained and the bunk bed creaked every time I changed my position. The hostel was...

Its location is the best (no more than 30 steps far away from main square!). It's clean, there are many shared bathrooms, a very simple breakfast is included in the price, personnel is very helpful... almost everything was more than ok. Rooms for two are tiny. I recommend it.

Wonderful location, right next to the town square. Breakfast was provided. Rooms and bathrooms were clean and tidy. Great value for money. Would have been nice to see some activities happening, we never saw anybody else while we were staying there.

I have spent 5 days in this great hostel: The location is just 1 minutes from the main square in Krakow(you can hear the magical sound of trumpet every hour), the rooms were very clean and everything in the hotel was new. But the best thing is how nice and helpful was the staff.
