Best hostel in Krakow, hands down! Lovely staff, great food, cool events every night and they take you to cool bars! I made friends, played guitar and ate like a pig. The location is perfect, you can walk to the best sights and restaurants. :)

Getting to the hostel was a little confusing at first but once I found it, my 5 day stay was wonderful. The staff were all amazingly accommodating and made all the guests feel welcome. I loved the Polish vodka shot night and how a simple card game could bring so many people together. Next time I'm in Krakow, definitely staying here!

Stayed in a 6 bed dorm in December 2017. The staff were friendly and gave us lots of tips for local attractions and places to eat, etc. Each bed had its own locker that had a fairly secure lock. The kitchen was fully stocked with free tea, coffee, hot chocolate and milk at all times. Breakfast was basic but good and there was more than enough food for everyone. There was a social event every night. We had a free sausage dinner and vodka shots one night. There were other events such as soup, pasta, etc. Really good value if you're on a budget and don't want to eat in restaurants all the time. The hostel also helped book tours. The only negative point was that there did not seem to be enough showers. There were only 2 in the girls' bathroom and one other shower in a room in the main corridor. If you like having lots of showers and don't like waiting to use them, then this should not bother you. Excellent location - 24hr supermarket across the road and 5 minute walk from main square. Also really easy to find from Krakow train station and only 10 minute walk.

Thank you for your great review and kind words regarding our hostel.
Its great to hear you enjoyed our activities as well as tours we offer to Auschwitz or the Salt Mine.

As for the showers we have 4 showers in the private rooms and 5 showers for shared rooms where the ratio is around 6 people for one shower which is above the standard and the sanitary regulations ( 1 shower per 15 pax). Sometime in busy our you might have to wait few minutes but it is not very often.

Make sure next time you book direct with us so you get the best availability and best rates.

Location: Perfect, with walking distance to all major touristy sites.
Staff: The staff are unbelievable here. They take time to know you and are very helpful when it comes to knowing what to see/eat/drinks etc.
Culture: Hostel has a great culture, they have dinner dates/drinking games most nights and there seems to always be something to do.
Dates stayed: 24-27th November

I would definitely recommend this Hostel if you are in Krakow. (Private room might be the way to go otherwise the dorms are fine)

I have travelled many cities and therefore stayed in many hostels, mostly, but not only, in Europe. Without having to think very hard about it, I am happy to say this is the best hostel I visited. Ever. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean. The hostel is very well equipped. There is a kitchen you can use whenever you want, books to read, free city maps, free guided tours. The staff is the most friendly and helpful I have encountered. There are free dinners and free breakfast for people who want. Every evening the staff organise activities and then guide you around cracow nightlife. They also make sure people are quiet in the sleeping areas from 11pm. It is very close to the city centre, the hostel organises tours in the city for free and offers tours to the salt mines an Auschwitz. Definitely recommend this hostel!
