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

I stayed here for two nights and the place was a dissapointment. They hygiëne of the place was bad: it had bedbugs. It was easy to notice that they don't clean the rooms often. The staff was most of the time helpfull. But sometimes their information was incorrect, for example about the pubcrawls. Also the atmosphere was a letdown. If... More

This hostel made Krakow one of my favourite stops in 5 weeks! The staff here are amazing, so friendly and helpful! They ran a pub crawl one of the nights we stayed and it was such a good night. The location is literally a stone's throw away from the main square, there is a great Italian restaurant round the corner... More
