Positive Reviews

Friendly and communicative staff

The service delivered by the Freedom Hostel's staff members was a highlight for a lot of previous visitors. As well as having a good command of English, the multilingual personnel working at the hostel were said to be really friendly and accommodating when dealing with guests and their enquiries/requests.

Convenient for Krakow city centre

Whilst not right in the centre of the city, the location of the hostel was praised by many former visitors. Most attractions in Krakow are within walking distance from the accommodation, including Main Square and the Wawel Royal Castle.

Clean and tidy rooms

In terms of hygiene, most past guests were happy with the state of the rooms at the Freedom Hostel. The rooms and en-suite bathrooms were both regularly judged to be clean and tidy in general.

Negative Reviews

Breakfast lacking in variety

Although it being inclusive was considered to be an advantage of sorts, the continental breakfast served at the Freedom Hostel was regularly derided by previous visitors. In particular, the breakfast offering was typically said to be overly limited in terms of options available.

Temperamental Wi-Fi connection

Recent guests to the hostel were often critical about the condition of the Wi-Fi service that was supplied. Along with temperamental download speeds, the accommodation's Wi-Fi was apparently not even accessible at times.

Shabby and basic rooms

The condition of the rooms was a disappointment for numerous past visitors that stayed at the Freedom Hostel. As well as being noticeably basic in terms of the amenities provided, the rooms were also described as outdated and showing distress.
