Positive Reviews

Relaxed location, but still central.

The Secret Garden has a good location in Kazimierz — almost in the old Jewish quarter, and not too far from Wawel Castle and the old city, especially with a tram nearby.

Secure, clean and inviting.

Guests were happy with the colourful and welcoming interior and found it to be secure, the rooms large and clean, the free Wi-Fi decent and the simple, complimentary breakfast handy.

Informative staff helpful with organising.

The warm staff was found to be particularly helpful with imparting useful tourist information, and assisting guests with their tour bookings.

Negative Reviews

Not everyone impressed with beds.

A few people who stayed at The Secret Garden founds the springs in the mattresses to be too loose for their liking, but overall, most guests had no problems with this.

Breakfast lacking some variety.

You may find the basic breakfast offering to be a little bland after a few days of consecutive dining, but hey, the accommodation is already cheap and the meal is free.

Noisy in the morning.

Due to hostel guests staying in dormitory-style accommodation, you may experience some noise in the morning when everyone is rising, but guests acknowledged this is something you will experience in most hostels.
