The best thing about this hotel was one of the receptionists who was particularly friendly and helpful. When I asked him one simple question, he kindly provided me with the information.

Room was clean and tidy with towel and comfy bedding provided - good shower too. Staff were very friendly and helped us with our language/public transport/sightseeing enquiries. The hotel is located at the site of the former Gestapo headquarters in Krakow and there is a interesting museum situated on the ground floor - well worth a look. Breakfast was tasty...

Hostel was dirty, and had real bad breakfast. The location was good, about 15 minute walk from the centre of Krakau. The rooms were dirty and the dust of (i do not know how long) was still visible in the toilet.
