“staying at the bastowa pension”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2010

For the price I paid for the room plus the location, I think I got a good deal, If you request a quiet room at the back, then there is no problem, with noise from people or transport.
yes, the rooms are basic but at approximately 35 uk pounds a night, you cannot expect too much, and the facilities were perfectly ok.If you want creature comforts in Krakow you would have to pay a lot more, and the location near the train station is superb

Stayed July 2009, travelled solo

This is a very noisy place. It is opposite the main tram and bus stops. You can't open the windows if you want to get to sleep because of the noise from drunks, cars and the trams and you can't sleep whilst the windows are shut because it is too hot and stuffy. Also you can hear when someone opens the front door downstairs because there isn't carpets on the hall and steps. If you do manage to eventually get to sleep, you will surely be awakened when someone comes into the hotel. Also, you can hear your neighbours very easily, since the walls are thin. Warning, wear earplugs in the toilet.

Two single beds were placed together as a double, the first bed was a little higher than the other. Not very romantic if you are a couple.

The rooms look nice on the Internet but when you see them up close, they are completely different. e.g. Dirty tables, not enough toilet paper, inadequate towels and no shower gel in the bathroom and no kettle. Also, you have to pay extra to have your room cleaned. Very importantly, no lift!!! (Avoid if you're disabled or elderly). You need to carry your own heavy bags to the second floor or higher. The staff are not nice and very unhelpful, they made us feel very unwelcome here.

WARNING!!! Your room key will open every other room on the same floor as yours. Don't leave your money and passport there. In fact, don't stay here.

The only good thing about this place is its location. It is very close to the main train station and quite close to the main square in the centre of the town.
