You have your choice of room: 2-, 3-, 4-, 6-, 8-, or 10-person. It will definitely be clean and comfortable. You’ll fit with your group of friends, regardless of how many of you there are.
You won’t be living above a bar, nor 40 m away from one, but in 4 minutes you’ll walk to the main square in Kazimierz – the most popular quarter of the city, full of clubs, cafés, bars, pubs, restaurants and galleries. If you decide to go the opposite direction, you are 8 minutes away from the enormous restaurant and pub zone – the Main Square. Coming back to the hostel, you won’t have to pay for a taxi and, besides, a short walk after a night out on the town does everyone some good. Kind of like free coffee or tea in the morning.
For those who are searching for the sights, you’ll find what you’re looking for, too – as we mentioned, the Main Square and Kazimierz are a stone’s throw away, and the Wawel castle is at a 5-minute stroll. In planning your route, our receptionists will help you with a city map, pamphlets and good advice, and if you want to tour the town with a guide, you need not go any further to arrange it than the reception.
And when you get back from your day of sight-seeing, you can always use the free Internet, or relax in your room to look back at what you saw.
The hostel is equipped with a monitoring system and various security measures, so that you can be assured a calm stay in Krakow.
Hostel Atlantis, with one of the lowest prices in the centre of Krakow, guarantees comfortable conditions, safety, an ideal localisation, and the friendly service of our young receptionist team.
Do you need anything else? Probably not. So why pay more?
If you want to go to Auschwitz and/or Wieliczka Salt Mine - ask the receptionist, we can get you a tour
CITY-walking tours are available too
As for the towels, please ask the Receptionist at the check-in.

|28 Oct 2012 Wai Ian, Poland||97%|
|Very plesant place to spend few days in! The toilet is very clean and hygienic and the staffs are friendly and helpful. Besides, I like the fully equipped kitchen (only the knives needed to change, not sharp enough) and the free food you provide to us, and I really like the idea of free food shelf! :)
Oh, but I think it's better to have free city maps on the reception desk as well ;)|

|12 Sep 2012 Imogen, England & Wales||97%|
|My partner and I stayed in a private room for the equivalent of just £10 each. The common room and kitchen were clean and welcoming. Very friendly staff, great location, would stay again! |

|My friend and I got bedbugs one night at this hostel. Also, it was often quite loud in the mornings, from the courtyard out back and the street.|
|15 Jul 2012 Yara, Canada||90%|
|The staff were VERY good at helping us with all our questions, and helping us plan. My only one complaint would be the wifi on the third floor - of the four nights we were there it only worked for a few hours. The computers downstairs were often more than enough though, so no worries. :)|
