Atlantis Hostel Reviews

Atlantis Hostel is one of a few hostels located in Krakow's Jewish Quarter. Just across the street from a beautiful park, the hostel is an excellent budget option in a lovely neighborhood.

Payment is usually taken right away. There are no deposits for keys or towels. They offer free luggage storage and complimentary coffee and tea all day. There is Wi-Fi that is strong enough for a blurry video call. There are several dorm options. Guests are locals and foreigners. Staff are all local and customer service is hit or miss.

The Location

This is one of a few hostels located near the Jewish Quarter. It is on a very quiet but large street. It's very easy to find and you'll feel safe to walk down late at night. Aside from the area's historic importance, the neighborhood boasts several cute bars, cafes, and restaurants. It's about twenty minutes from Florianska's Gate, but it is a lovely walk.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Atlantis offers private rooms and en suite dorms as well as dorms with shared bath. For the shared bath, there are several showers with good water pressure and hot water. It's not luxurious by any means but it is clean and comfortable. The showers have space to safely store your stuff. There are several sinks. There are only two toilets, which is a minor inconvenience.

The en suite dorms are lovely. They are not much more expensive than dorms with shared bathrooms, but the difference in quality is very significant. None of the beds are particularly comfortable. All dorm beds come with lights, shelves, and sockets. Each bed also has a locker with key.

Common Spaces

There is a bar/restaurant on the ground floor. It lacks ambiance but is a satisfactory place to grab cheap breakfast for the day.

There are three common rooms on the first floor, with several comfortable places to sit. Wi-Fi is available throughout the hostel and works at about maximum seventy-five percent quality.

The kitchen is fully stocked with a full-sized fridge. Many people use the kitchen so it feels like a home. Just off the kitchen is a small balcony, large enough for a few people to sit outside and have a smoke. The best part of the balcony is that it overlooks the strip of park across the street. It is a lovely and relaxing view.

Summary

Atlantis Hostel is part of a chain of reputable hostels in Krakow and Prague. It is a very large hostel with several guests, but it does not feel overwhelming. The hostel is very organized and make check-in fairly simple. They could put more effort into training their front desk staff -- some staff are helpful and others are not. One front desk staff did not match a price found on a booking site, even though there is a sign at the front desk that clearly states that booking with the hostel guarantees the lowest prices. Your best bet is to book online. For dorms, book the eight-bed en suite.

Description

We don't offer jacuzzis.
We don't have a Thai restaurant, nor a bowling alley.
We don't give out coupons for lunch in the city.
In our hostel, the urinals aren't equipped with sensors.
Our hostel isn't decked out with a billiard or ping-pong table.
We don't have a 45" plasma TV.
We don't offer free transport to Zakopane.
We haven't equipped the rooms with waterbeds.
Our staff doesn't speak Dutch, Ukrainian, Greek, Finish, or many more languages – we are very sorry.
We don't offer free exotic fruit every Monday morning, nor do we cook for our guests all that their hearts desire.
The water temperature of the shower isn't hotter than 80 degrees Celsius (probably not even higher than 65).

BUT

We definitely have one of the cheapest accommodations in the centre of Krakow.
Here you won't pay for things you don't need and don't intend to use, while at the same time, you'll most likely find everything that you need, and you won't have to pay extra.

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.

WE CHARGE A CITY TAX (1,6zl which is ar. 40cents) WHICH IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE PRICE
