The hostel is more like a great hotel suite. Not a single room but a private apartment with a kitchen, bathroom with a shower, living room, bedroom, and a second bedroom. It is located in Kazimierz, the old Jewish section of Krakow. It is within walking distance to the Wawel Castle, Jagiellonian University, and the Rynek in Krakow. It is...

We will be returning because it was a lovely place. Very inexpensive, safe and secure. Within walking distance to the Jewish center and also the castle. There was a farmers market on the weekend complete with local talent shows. Buy linens, metal crafts and you can find a farmers market very close. Eat the baked, smoky cheese.

I stayed for 4 nights in a twin room with an en-suite. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean and well equipped. Very good value for money and the staff were helpful. Located just a short walk away from the old town, Wawel castle and the Jewish quarter. Would definitely stay here again if I go back to Krakow.

Upon arrival it's pretty unassuming and actually hidden back from the road hence the name Secret 😂 we were greeted by a very friendly person at reception and made to feel welcome. Rooms are named after secret gardens which is a nice little touch. On the subject of the rooms ours was a triple with 3 single beds but although...
