Liked: Location, tea and coffee all day long, maps and linen

Disliked: The receptionist's table in thee middle makes it always look messy, bed are very old noizy and unsafe. STAFF IS JUST DISGUSTING!!! only one girl (second morning) was nice and friendly. on the second evening the receptionist had a party with some friends and were TERRIBLY LOUD!!! whene were asked to keep the noize level down they answered very impolitely and didn't care that we could not sleep. The food was good, but all the time not enought and we had to ask them to bring some more again and again. (Sorry, they have to watch the table to be full, not me)

Liked: Wonderful location, clean, homely and embracing. This is a hostel that is the perfect chill out spot after a big day exploring Krakow. The staff are super friendly and there is always tea and coffee available. There's a nice lounge and spacious rooms. Great value for money and certainly worth your booking. Krakow is an incredible city, take some time to explore it all!

Disliked: Kevin left no negative feedback.

Liked: The holy grail of locations - minutes on foot from the train station and the main sights. The view was amazing. The staff were great, really helpful. The dorm was spacious and had storage and plenty of power sockets. There's a lift, and free washing machine, both of which are unusual. Access to the building was controlled by reception (but the buzzer's really quiet, I pressed the bell three times before I heard it unlock, as trams were going past). It's easily the best of the three hostels I've stayed in in Krakow, and I'd definitely go back.

Disliked: The shower was cold, and a bit too open - you have to leave your stuff out of the cubicle to keep it dry, but there's no lock to the room. Kitchen facilities are basic, just a kettle and a microwave.

Liked: good location, free computers, free washing machine and dryer (amazing), fridge/microwave/kettle (but not an actual kitchen which is a bummer), lift to get you up to the 5th floor, friendly staff

Disliked: an actual kitchen would have been a big plus. the walls are very thin and everything in very close proximity making it really loud if your trying to sleep and people are still up.

Liked: The niceness of the staff, cleanness, location and the interesting, warm way in which the hostel is decorated gives you a wonderful feeling and contributes to your Krakow memories :)

Disliked: The only very minor comment is that the floor in front of my room was a bit noisy, so everytime someone stepped on it, it was heard in the room. Minor con, as I said.
