Got there at night only to be met bulky a hostel that did not at all resemble the nice pictures online. There was a (dirty looking) kitchen in the hallway where the pictures showed a mirror. The pictures also all looked cozy and clean, but in reality it was dirty and sketchy. There was mold in the shower and you could see into the toilets (these were unisex btw so anyone can see in). The receptionist service was ok, she was friendly. We were initially given a room that had no other roommates, but we were requested to change rooms because she needed to clean ours (should have been done before our arrival). This would have been no problem, if it weren't for our new roommate. We were in a 6 bedroom shared room of which our roommate had taken two for himself. One for sleeping and one for dumping his trash on. It looked like he had been living there for a while. He was watching tv loudly and refused to turn it down even at 10pm while we were all trying to sleep. He was drinking and smoking frequently (not in the room) so the room smelt like smoke and he was drunk. He would get hostile when asked to keep it quiet in the middle of the night. The environment itself also was extremely loud, so after a terrible sleep, we had decided to leave and look for another hostel. The receptionist was no where to be found, so our only option was to leave the keys on the desk and check ourselves out. Please to yourself a favour and avoid this place!!!!

DANGEROUS!! Absolutely awful! There was a man in our room, that I think lives there who threatened my partner in the middle of the night. Even though there was no drinking allowed on the premises, he was absolutely wasted. I would even dare call this place a dangerous place to stay in. AVOID!!  The man in our room had taken over every bed and corner that wasn't used with his belongings. All 4 of us slept approx an hour because the room was not quiet at all!! The drunks in the other rooms (whom also presumably live there) watched movies till the late hours and kept turning it up. When asked if they could lower the volume slightly because it was passed 11pm, it was met with drunk shouting, and threatening hand gestures. Never again! We left in the early morning and hope for a refund.

We stayed in this hostel with my wife when visiting Krakow for Night of Museum. Level of this hostel is quite enough when comparing to the price of it. We payed for 1 night with breakfast for 2 150zl which for Krakow is really good. We had 2-persons room which was quite small, but clean and bathroom good, it looks renovated not so long ago. For 1 or 2 nights in Krakow it's very good option I would say. With tram which stop is 50 metres from hostel you can get to the city center within 20-25 minutes, which is great.

Is a tiny nice hostel except for the location .it is not for partying ,due small space. The staff is super nice, accommodating and helpful. The toilets are really clean and smells perfect. The beds are so comfy and there was curtains on the lower bunk beds which I truly loved. I had the perfect sleeping experience. I just did not like the location as it is far from the old town and of course the nightlife however there was more than one supermarket in the area which was a plus. In total I would recommend it .ah, I forgot. ..it's not really a budget hostel.
