Opt for a Room on the Upper Floors

The hostel has no elevator, so if you prefer a quieter stay, consider requesting a room on the upper floors to minimize street noise.

Consider Bringing Earplugs

Some guests mentioned street noise as a potential issue, so packing earplugs might be helpful for light sleepers.

Check the Kitchen Facilities

If you plan on cooking, note that the kitchen closes at 9 pm, and some guests found the lack of an oven/stove and limited kitchen hours inconvenient.

Take Advantage of the Location

The hostel's central location near the Wawel Castle and the Kazimierz district makes it convenient for exploring the city's attractions and nightlife.

Be Mindful of the Lack of Amenities

While the hostel offers basic amenities, some guests noted the absence of bedside lamps, towels, and bathroom essentials, so consider bringing your own if needed.

Consider the Balcony Rooms

Guests staying in rooms with balconies on the upper floors enjoyed scenic views and a pleasant atmosphere, making it a worthwhile option if available.

Plan for Early Closure of Common Areas

The common areas, including the kitchen, close at 9 pm, so plan your activities accordingly if you intend to use these facilities.

Take Note of Check-in Procedures

To streamline the check-in process, ensure you have a Polish phone number for check-in, as some guests encountered difficulties without one.

Utilize the Nearby Amenities

With a 24-hour supermarket located underneath the hostel and several mini-markets nearby, take advantage of the convenient access to essential supplies and groceries.

Consider the Value for Money

Despite some limitations, many guests found the hostel to offer good value for the price, especially considering its central location and cleanliness.
