Krakow is full of hostels like Blue Hostel: quite barebones sorts of places where low rates and scant furnishings are the predominant characteristics. For those more interested in saving money—and a central location—than sleeping in style, Blue Hostel should fit the bill.

Blue is one of the smaller hostels in Krakow, with just seven rooms. We looked at a narrow room with light yellow walls, gray wall-to-wall carpets and a bare minimum of furniture. In the retelling, this may sound like a less-than-appealing room, but in fact it is a quite attractive little space. Turquoise folding chairs provide one of the few flashes of color.

An international bevy of student backpackers sets the social tone. The common lounge space looks quite friendly, and offers satellite television and a DVD library. Location is also good. Blue Hostel sits on main artery Westerplatte, which runs along the western side of the Stare Miasto greenbelt.

Breakfast is included. Free Wi-Fi is available.

About the Blue Hostel neighborhood

Stare Miasto (Old Town) is the heart of Old Krakow. Encircled by a greenbelt park and bookended by Wawel (Castle) Hill at its south and the Florian Gate at its north, the area is full of tourist sights. These include Rynek Glowny—the Main Market Square and the biggest medieval city square in Europe—St. Andrew's Church and Wawel Castle. Swank cafes and restaurants abound here.
