Pink Panther's Hostel is in a great location, so close to the main square and right next to many good restaurants, nightlife and lots of the main attractions in Krakow. This is a party hostel and there was a good atmosphere. The staff are always cheerful, smiling and helpful, giving information and always give recommendations on which places to visit... More

First impression was terrible, there were Rickety old stars with broken banister to climb. Im sure this a health and safety issue because one of us put our hand on the banister and almost had an accident!! Went into the room which was damp and had ROTTEN mugs in the dorm. There were mosquitos everywhere and BEDBUGS in the bed!!... More

This hostel has an perfect location for exploring the city. Its not too far from meeting points of the tours either! The only downfall of the hostel was the bathrooms weren't very clean. There were cleaners in as we left so ill give them the benefit of the doubt. It has a nice atmosphere and the staff were friendly.

We arrived late in the night to find the staff had no idea about our reservation and when they did eventually find it, only had it booked under one person and not two, tried to make us pay for another and then decided that we should just come find the manager in the morning. We were told we would have... More

I recently stayed here for 2 nights in a private 2 bed room. Our room was located on the top floor (no elevator, in case you have mobility issues). There were 2 single beds, an armoire, a desk and a floor fan (which was very much needed as it was muggy and hot when we were there). The room was... More

I spent there 3 nights and did not regret. It is a typical party hostel, full of great people (the hostel is large). There are daily social events, so you can get to know a lot of people around the world. They even arranged a party on the tram. Stuff very nice and friendly.

A group of 3 friends and I stayed from for 5 nights and 6 days in this hostel and all in all it was a positive experience. The staff were helpful and friendly and the rooms were what you would expect for the price. Only negative was a lack of AC in the rooms! A large communal area which was... More

We stayed here as a mixed group last year and had an awesome time. The hostel was very welcoming and clean, and has a great social area and kitchen. As for location, you can't get much better, you walk out of the hostel and down the street and you are in Krakow's main square near the market building . The... More

Krakow was beautiful, but this hostel was disappointing! It's location was great but even the entrance was like nothing I have ever experienced, creaky staircases, litter and leaky roofs, it was like the communists had never left. Our beds weren't prepared which was annoying, staff were quite friendly but not very helpful and on our first night two people returned... More

Marta K, Kierownik at Pink Panther's Hostel, responded to this review

Dear Dan, thank you very much for your opinion. First of all our hostel is located in a historical building in the Old Town district, therefore one can not expect a modern building. Our check in time is from 1 pm that is why your beds were not prepared earlier. However, we always offer our guests free luggage storage and... More

Walking distance from the Train Station and seconds from the main square. Next door to a Sex Shop, above a Restaurant. across the street from another Restaurant. A temperamental entrance system, a lower hallway littered with cans and bottles for the duration of my 3 night stay, which smelled of urine and had a lovely pile of vomit which was... More
