Great value for the price!

We took a gamble on this hotel as the overall rating of the hotel wasn't great but the bad reviews seemed to be from people picking at things. The hostel was clean and the service was good with a reasonably priced airport transfer too. The breakfast included was also very tasty. The main reason for the high rating is that I feel that the hostel has outdone itself for the cost of the stay. Very good value for the price!

First hostel experience & loved it (solo traveler)

This was the first time I'd ever stayed in a hostel and was very pleasant surprised. My room was cute, with a loft sleeping area and a queen bed. Towels and bedding provided but not things like hairdryers. It's in a historical area and I liked the small balcony overlooking the neighbors. Walking distance to Wawel Castle and Old Town Square. Grocery/liquor store down the street and international bank machine ATM in several locations nearby. Great little bakery up the street. In the evening, I sat in the lounge and had a drink. In the morning, I had a light breakfast and the best coffee I'd had during my visit in Poland (I'm from Canada and it's similar to our coffee). The ages of the guests were varied from young adults to retirees. Felt safe and comfortable there, which was important to me as a solo female traveler.

Pros: Location Historical feel of the building 24 hour front desk

Cons: Mattress covers to soften the mattresses.

Location: Great location and easy access to transit and key tourist sites.
