This hostel is located in the heart of the historical old town square. The bed was comfy and other hostel guests were pleasant. I would recommend this hostel to anyone who is looking for an affordable place to stay in Krakow, within walking distance of the major sites. You won't regret it!

Stayed at Cracow Hostel for 3 nights and had a great experience. The entrance is a little confusing because you have to walk through a cafe to get in but it's worth it because the hostel is right in the city square! Perfect location in proximity to all the major sites in Krakow. The dorm and the bathrooms were always...

This is a good and cheap hostel located in the Krakow main square, which makes it a very central place and walking distance to almost everywhere. The breakfast is included, and we got a nice room with a view. however, it´s mandatory to install hairdryers in the baths, especually in the winter time. Quality-price relation is very good though.

The room was uncomfortable and cold. we couldnt rest one night because there were a lot of young people making noice and drinking in the kitchen and the staff didnt do anything. The breakfast could be better. Ubication is perfect.

Finding the hostel was fun - you can see the sign easily but the actual front door is at the back of a restaurant which threw us for a few minutes. We booked a 6-bedded room and were given a room for 6 on the second floor looking out over the town square. The view was fantastic. The room is...

Although the accommodation is simple, there are lots of other facilities, like a clean kitchen are with fridge, cooker, microwave and all utensils. Lovely chill out areas and computers for easy internet access. I loved this hostel so much I returned for my second...

We (2 adults & 2 children) booked the 6 bed apartment for an overnight stay prior to flying out next morning. The location could not be more central (in corner of main square). Reception staff were very friendly and efficient, both when calling ahead to confirm arrival time and when checking in. Apartment is spotless, roomy with well appointed modern...

I arrived very flustered and Olga and Paulina helped me with my reservation. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The accommodation was above average and I loved my stay in Kraków. I would recommend Kraków is an amazing city and to stay in the centre with such friendly staff was just perfect.

If all you want is a bed to sleep on then Cracow Hostel is a good find. Affordable and central to the Kraków old town which is really great. The hostel staff are also really helpful and accommodating and it has a very homely feel. Unfortunately for us, we had to share the top floor of the hostel with a...
