This is a Trusted Review. Why?
The room was very dirty - looked like it hasn't been cleaned for couple of weeks (stuff flying all over the floor).
Bathroom. No toilet roll and no real sink. The sink was a size of a cereal bawl, if you wanted to wash your face you spilled the water all over the toilet and the toilet floor. The shower was clogged with hair and the is no door closing it. The rooms are very noisy - throughout the night we woke up about 5 time cause of drunk people that couldn't get into their rooms they were shouting to let them in (there is only one key to each room and you can't open the door when people inside locked themselves for the night).
If you want to have a good night sleep you have to close all the windows because of the noise outside. There is no AC. The bed was very comfortable and the linens clean. The towel rather small but sufficient for short hair.
The "fantastic breakfast" consists of tea, coffee, cereal, bread, slices of cheese and ham + tomatoes and cucumber. These were OK besides the fact that they were very warm (probably because there is no fridge). The milk was sour for the same reason.
You don't have a real kitchen as such but a couple of tables and a kettle + toaster. Those two cannot be used at the same time as there is only one electricity socket.
This area is as well so called common room, however I wouldn't say it was very welcoming.
WiFi works fast and is free.
The staff was very friendly and helpful apart from one girl (looked like she was the boss there or rather was very bossy).
All in all I would not recommend this place, there is plenty of other hostels around Kazimierz (the Jewish district). I will try them next time.
