Although the apartment was lovely. We couldn't fault it . However very disappointed that the manager of the hotel did not contact me having fallen off the last step to the dining room. Two days later there was yellow and black tape put on the stairs. Both of my legs were severely bruised and very painful. When I brought this to the attention of the receptionist he phoned the manager to no avail. This was not followed up by the manager. I am now back in the uk still in a lot of pain.
We stayed in november for 3 nights in this hostel and payed 19,50 € p.P. per night. The rooms seem to differ a little bit, so here are our experiences with our room and the hostel: + spacious room + clean + comfortable couch and chairs + little refrigerator + nice and helpful service (especially for the tour to Auschwitz) + breakfast-buffet (coffee, tea, milk, juice, sausage, cheese, jam, scrumbled eggs, apples etc.) + towels for free + elevator + non-smoking rooms + smoking-area in the backyard + coffee + tea for free in the room, waterboiler + at least 6 plug sockets + 1 km away from the central railway station, bus-station, huge shopping Gallery + about 200 m to the Old Town + free + steady W-Lan Now the not so good points: - with open window the mainstreet Westerplatte is pretty noisy (cars, trams, sirenes of ambulances etc.) - no hair-dryer - hardly enough space in the bathroom to put more than one toilet bag General information for Auschwitz-Tour: Take the main entrance of the shopping gallery, go downstairs right away and go straight through the train station. When you leave the train station you'll already see the bus station and the ticket office (14 Zloty per person). Even if the salesperson isn't (maybe) very friendly, don't hestitate to ask as long as you get any Information you need. We took the 10.10 h bus at the place G1 upstairs. The trip took about 1,5 h and stopped right in front of the museum. Important: Make a reservation (ask at the reception of the Blue Hostel) online for your visiting date and time, because the Auschwitz-Museum only allows a limited amount of visitiors every day. And when you arrive, ask the bus driver for a litte card with all the departure-times back to Krakow. And any bag bigger than 30x20x10 cm isn't allowed in the Museum. We hope, you will have a really good time like we had, and we would always book that hostel again.
Hello, we would like to confirm our trip for tomorrow from Budapest to Krakow arriving at 23 hours at the airport. We can take taxi or bus? How far it is your hotel? How much? thanks, good night, Patricia
Great staff, very clean rooms, tasty breakfast!
Spacious rooms, clean bathrooms, nice service, I would recommend this place
Nice place in city center
I had a very bad experience at this hostel, we were shouted at by the manager for complaining about the noise, and our online reservation was cancelled after our stay to prevent us from leaving negative feedback. The management do not know how to deal with people - they act like the guests are the enemies!!!
I enjoyed staying there. The room was spotless and the staff was very friendly. Just round the corner from all the caffes in Kazimierz, but very quiet place.
Good standard and honest price. Recommended!
