Liked: Almost everything. Couldn't ask for a better location . Good internet connection.

Disliked: It always seemed to be understaffed. At 8.30am I was leaving for a tour and I had the tour guide in the lobby waiting for me. I waited ten minutes at reception to try and change some money and buy a bottle of water and no one showed up. You would think that would be a busy time with check in and check out, and there were others waiting too. However when the staff were there they were helpful.

Liked: Exellent value for money in very clean, friendly and very modern facilities and nice atmosphere AND The best Breakfast buffet in Poland!

Disliked: NOTHING NEGATIVE AT ALL. except they asked me to write this review and I would rather keep quiet about it so I can always get a room! But I'm not that selfish. One day all hostels will be this good

Liked: I liked everything! It was spacious and lovely hostel. Large living room and kitchen, good free breakfast, A LOT OF SHOWERS AND TOILETS. Toilets were so great, those were like you were in your own bathroom. Never had to wait for getting shower. Staff was so great, too. They advised us how to get to salt mines easily, where to shop, where to eat.. Everytime when we asked. Beds were comfortable. You couldnt get any better location for your stay in Krakow.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: The location was perfect, as it was located in the heart of Krakow. That was the main reason why we decided to stay at this place.

Disliked: Breakfast: I read some positive reviews about the breakfast, but have to say that this was the worst thing with my hostel experience here. The breakfast consisted of dry, white bread (only one type) that was not fresh at all, two packs of butter, 3 types of jam, one type of cheese, two types of cornflakes, and milk that wasn't even cold!! Nothing special. No fruits or vegetables, no ham, nothing healthy... I wish we could have payed an extra 10-20 zloty for some better breakfast. BEDS: Very simple, thin, not very comfortable. I would say they're perfect for backpackers, but would not recommend this place for couples on vacations..

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.
