I would like to inform you that In the City of Kraków was launched the first object, which the following 5 words describe in 100%:'HOTEL QUALITY FOR HOSTEL PRICE' :)
No doubts! They offer you hotel quality and hostel atmosphere for hostel price. They are probably the olny ones in Krakow who offers that. The rooms over there are well furnished, bright and really new. But also you will find: SAT TV and internet access in every room (when you travel with your PC than it is very usefull). And... what you may be interested in you can book: doubles, triples, quads and dorms available. Prices from 45 zl pppn (~11E) at low season; high season from 70 zl pppn.
Common Room is spacious, bright and round:) Also with kitchen very well equiped. You will find a computer over there to use the inetrnet for free.
Every room has ensuite facilities just for you. Really clean. Check their web-site.
Staff speaks many languages and they are really helpfull.

Service was very good all staff are english speaking at the very least, one girl seemed to speak Polish, English and German with ease.
I wouldn't class this as a hostel because it has more of a hotel feel to it, in your room you get 2 rather comfortable single beds, your own bathroom with shower. You also get a little TV with some channels most a in Polish or German, I could only find Sky News in English.
There is also free tea and coffee in the common room, you also get free internet connection.
I would recommend this hostel to anyone, a great stay in Krakow.
Unique Quality: It is located in a nice part of the town, very near a little park which is nice. It is very close to a Police station, which is good because it makes you feel safe but if you sleep with the window open you can hear sirens sometimes.
Directions: I had SatNav so I just followed that.
Clean rooms with TV in this old building (has some communist police history to it). Hostel is on the third floor and there is no lift. The hostel has clean washrooms and they supply linen. A little out of the way, it's it located about 10 minutes outside the Planty.
Unique Quality: Good showers. Oh man. That was a great shower.
Directions: see www.hostels.com for address. (yes, I am lazy to look it up!!).
