Liked: Fantastic staff, nice hostel, great location, good price, overall a high value hostel where I would stay again.

Disliked: -No parking available even though their hostel description says it has parking.-The reception/cafe area smells very strongly of cigarrette smoke and it sometimes drifts to the bedrooms above.

Liked: Love the location just a few minutes from either Wawel and Kazmierz. Staff was always really nice and helpful.

Disliked: No coffee cups, cutlerly (except for plastic) or dishes in kitchen. Unable to use the tap in sinks because faucet and sink were so small. Frustrating when you can't get water. My room had only one electrical outlet which was really only accessable from one bunk. Also, my room didn't have heat. It was prettty cold but you expect that in Europe. I got an extra blanket.

Liked: Fantastic and very clean hostel, very friendly and helpful staff. Loved the atmosphere. Great wodka too!

Disliked: Personally I was not bothered by it (going out for dinner is very cheap, and they gave great recommendations at the hostel), but there was no stove.

Liked: Staff were very friendly and approachable, was made to feel very welcome throughout the duration of my stay. Was always offered coffee whenever I came back from an excursion and were very useful when planning trips out or recommending somewhere to eat or drink. Definitely value for money.

Disliked: The shower and toilet had a bit of a stale smell, it was really a minor issue and did not disrupt my stay. The girls who I were travelling seemed to mind however.Having visited in december, the hostel was rather chilly inside and extra heat would have been good. Again, not a major issue, just wear some jumpers and grow a pair.
