2/10 Poor

Night,are experience ,Don’t go there !
With your proliferation of cameras, you failed to prevent a theft of my personal belongings, a bag and a plugged in battery charger and battery! The theft occurred with 15 mins of checking in, whilst I was getting food from a convenience store! I could not fit the small food purchased into thebursting, filthy , smelly fridge, it was disgusting! A simple notice stating ,’fridge cleared out every two days, would remedy that for you ! Having suffered the theft,I decided to stay on the settee in the common room! Later in the evening an arrogant dwarf challenged me, purporting to be a night manager! After reporting the theft and why I was sitting on the settee, he got REALLY upset when I asked him for his ID ? He sqeaked that he would call the Police if I did not instantly show him my booking ! I obliged, still not knowing who this Cretin was and that snow whitecwould probably be looking for him, he was not amused, again threatening police intervention! I pointed out to him if he was a night manager, he should turn his attention to the noisy crowd in the kitchen, happily ignoring the 10 pm curfew on noise ! He said a few words in polish, then the crowd happily re engaged in their noisy activities! Your midget sulked off into where he was based, giving me the evil eye👁 as he departed ! I left in the early hours for my flight, feeling instantly better after leaving your ill run den of thieves ! Be as proficient as your sister apartments,I stayed there recently! G.

Cut above in Krakow
Done a lot of hostels in Krakow, this would be among the best! Good location and friendly bed, the extra pillow was there upon request , as was a towel after I had enquired about it ! I’d never had to rent a towel before at any accommodation in 55 years, I wasn’t starting now! Noisy only on one night, due to paper thin walls and party orientated residents! Don’t pick the room next to the kitchen, there are unconscionable swine 24/7 banging and crashing, black out blinds would have really been welcome, all in all 8/10

6/10 Good

basic place to stay.
Usually when check in says 2/3pm you can at least enter the building. I had to wait for almost an hour just until someone showed up, and luckily a pedestrian helped me enter the building because the Hostel wasnt buzzing me in. There werent a lot of rooms so it was kind of just a place to lay your head, it wasnt a fun atmosphere with a lot of travellors with a bar or anything, it was super cheap so I cant complain too much. The location was fine, there was a quick walk to the historic center and there was a yummy milk bar near by.

8/10 Very good

Easy walk to the old town and bus/train station. They provide lockers but they are too narrow to fit a small luggage or backpack. You can lock up your clothes and valuables in the lockers but the bag itself won't fit. Nice hair dryer in the bathroom. The hostel was kind of empty, I stayed in an upstairs apartment which was separate from the reception area downstairs, not much interaction w/ staff or other travelers. I did not try their breakfast but it is available for an extra fee.

Clean, helpful female staff that ensures everything is ok. But take note that the upper bunk doesn't have curtains as of now as compared to the lower bunk so comfort and privacy level will vary alot depends on your allocated bed. Expect your bunk mates to sleep early as this is a quiet hostel.
