    Location is perfect, just 5 minutes walk to the old city. The room was small, but clean and cosy enough for hostel. Staff is friendly and willing to help

    Do not count on having breakfast there - it's almost uneatable

    We also stayed at Premium Hostel (the floor below) but preferred Freedom. Close enough to the old city to walk (around 10 minutes), though you have to catch a tram/ bus from the train station. There is not much food or entertainment of note close to the hostel, but transport connections are good. Room was small but clean. Room was warm during the day but cooled off at night if a window to the main road was kept open. Unfortunately, the street outside can be noisy with traffic, and one night loud music and garbage trucks kept us awake. Not a social atmosphere, though a simple but sufficient breakfast (bread, selection of jams, cheese and yoghurt) is included in a common breakfast room. Walk very quickly across the nearby main road.

    Noise from outside the room if the window was open (it had to be as otherwise the room was hot).

    Nice breakfast!!

    It was probably our bad luck but some of the guest were a bit noisy.

    High standard of amenities, helpful staff,very convenient location,stayed here before,Booked.net worked in reserving rooms successfully, would use it again.I would like to stay at the Freedom again but would ask for a room away from the stair well.

    There is a hostel below Freedom, called Premium Hostel. The noise coming up from there, teenagers running around all through the night, kept me awake. I should have said something to the night staff, but thought they would use their initiative to stop the rowdy behaviour.

    Nice and friendly staff, always very helpful. Fairly close to the Old Market. Booking through Booked.net was cheaper than at the reception desk. Definitively recommended!

    I liked the personel. The receptionnists were very nice, amazing! And I liked the posiblity to pay after our stay.

    In our room it was realy hot and if we opened the window, the street was so noisy that we couln't leave the window opened during the night.

    Good location and friendly staff.

    The days I was in Krakow the temperature was very high and in the hostel there was not even a fan.

  • Family with children

    very positive staff. Free parking place near the hostel

    grey wet bedsheets either with holes ore shorter than bed. Kitchen utensils is chapped.

  • Family with children
    8.8

    I liked the excellent city centre location: close to trams and shops and quite close to relatives whom we were visiting for Christmas.

    We found the rooms a little noisy, with thin walls, and the breakfast rather basic with a limited choice.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Location very good, staff spoke very good English and were very helpful. Breakfast was simple and room was small but comfortable.

    Good location, very close to the centre,10 to 15 minutes walk.

    Clean, spacious, well-equiped kitchen (Cleaner comes in several times a day to clean up) Really liked this hostel

    One night had to sleep with cotton wool in my ears as one of the receptionists has a very loud voice. Room was located beside the reception.

  • Couple

    We booked very last minute and the hostel was perfect for our one night. We didn't use the kitchen or have the breakfast offered so can't comment. The room was a twin with ensuite, we got a taxi from station due to our heavy bags and the taxi driver knew where it was. The price of the hostel was great too.

  • Couple
    9.6

    The hostel met our expectations in a full extent. The room was clean and bed was ok. There was no difficulty with parking a car, however, one can meet some since there were only couple of free places. Breakfast was ok for the hostel - it's a small, shiny kitchen where you can prepare something to eat: sausages, creams, tea & coffee, bread and butter + milk with muesli. It was nice.

    Special thanks to Asia F. (staff) as she helped me to get my camera back.
