Liked: It was on the square and great for looking out onto the square.

Disliked: It was on the square, and therefore at night especially it was horrible noisy; live music is played in the square over giant loudspeakers, and this music goes on well into the night.

Liked: Friendly staff, perfect location in the heart of Krakow's Old Town. The rooms are spacious and the WiFi works well.

Disliked: There was a huge line for the showers in the morning and it's difficult to get an early night's sleep with all the music and noise right outside your window

Liked: The hostel was extremely clean and secure. Lockers are provided with keys and there are helpful staff members at the front desk at all times. There is also a free breakfast every morning which was an awesome surprise. Nothing too extravagant but all that you need.

Disliked: Overall it was great, but the only thing that could have been better during our stay was more people staying at the hostel. If you like quiet hostels then this place was perfect but if you are looking to meet people then maybe go elsewhere.

Liked: Amazing location - right in the market square. Great price and private showers were definitely nice.

Disliked: Breakfast was nothing special. The Wifi didn't always work but there were computers to use right outside the room which made up for it when they were free.

Liked: The location is great! Cracow itself is great! A party hostel, which for good and bad will mean lots of people bumming around everywhere in common areas in the hostel. During night it can be bit too noisy!

Disliked: No aircondition and the windows always open. The property is in the middle of cracow and theres a lot of sounds from outside! For sleeping i recommend earplugs. Theres a lot of stairs in the hostel, though not a problem for a healthy person. The character and atmosphere is so open and friendly that people sometimes forget to respect the poor ones sleeping =) The beds in room G is just horrible, the worst i have ever used, a air mattress would be better!!!!

Liked: One of the best hostel experiences of my life! It's not a new flashy place but its clean, cheap, lockers are provided, the location is amazing and breakfast is included - this place nails it! The staff were all very helpful. I was even able to do a load of washing very cheaply. Two enthusiastic thumbs up for this place!

Disliked: The only negative aspect about my stay was the large school group also staying on my floor. Their teachers had a very relaxed bed time policy so there was lots of screaming and running up and down hallways.

Liked: Fantastic central Krakow location. Our room had a view of the town square and St. Mary's Basilica. Nice room with secured lockers. The staff was, for the most part, wonderful, even getting us coffee while we waited to check in.

Disliked: There was a large group of young travelers from Iceland that were quite loud into early morning hours and I wish the staff would have recognized this and made an effort to quiet them down.

Liked: The location is unbeatable. It's just a few minutes' walk from Kraków Główny train station and you can easily walk to all the Old Town and Kazimierz tourist attractions. The staff were friendly and incredibly helpful, recommending takeaway places and even booking our Auschwitz tour for us. The facilities were clean and welcoming, the bathrooms were spotless, the wifi was reasonably reliable, and the continental breakfast was good for a quick light meal. For £10 a night, it was kind of unbelievable.

Disliked: Nothing much. The old-fashioned key to our door was difficult to use at first, but you get the hang of it.
