I stayed in this hostel because of its wonderful location. It is just meters away from the market square. Rooms were silent, staff was helpful, breakfast was ok. Hostel is generally clean.

I stayed in Mama's hostel in July last year during a short trip to Poland & the Czech Republic. In the time I was travelling, this was by far the best place I stayed (so much so that I couldn't even tell you the names of the other places I had to endure!). The location is perfect for getting around... More

Great hostel just off the main square. I stayed in a better hostel before but have stayed in many more worse hostels. Only bad point is the 5 stories of stairs can get annoying very quickly. The hostel staff is what makes this place great, very friendly and helpful.

I came to the hostel in the midst of a frigid winter, so it was pretty much empty. I stayed in the large eighteen-person dorm; it was occupied by a couple, but they left after the first day or so. The hostel was very clean and everyone was very nice and helpful. The showers might have been a tad cold,... More

Among the best hostels I've stayed at in Europe. Not even a block off of the main square, it was convenient, very clean, and well suited for younger people backpacking through Europe. Rooms were divided into male and female only and were narrow but squeaky clean with nice wooden bunk beds. Breakfast is very B&B style around a kitchen table... More

Mama's hostel in Krakow's Main Square has a great location, being about 30 seconds walk from the main square itself. The rooms were always clean and warm enough, although a little on the small side compared to other hostels I've stayed in. The staff too were extremely friendly. They often joined in the festivities with other travellers, providing free alcohol... More

I stayed at Mama's for 3 nights and loved it. The hostel is an easy 10 minute walk from the train station, and less than 30 feet from the main square. The hostel is a giant apartment, which is great for meeting other travelers. The first part of the hostel is the reception with a living room with free computer,... More

I went on a stag do with 9 other lads. The hostel was £20 each for 2 nights, and this included breakfast, albeit a basic one (toast, cereal etc.) For the money we paid there can be no complaints at all. Facilitates (kitchen, bathrooms etc) were spot on and there were lockers to keep your valuables secure. Obviously it is... More
