It's a very nice hostel where you can spend some nights in Cracow. It's very cheap and it's five minutes to the city centre. Best place for sleep and live your holiday in Cracow. Cracow is the most beautiful city in Poland.

They have a Foosball table, Pool, or Darts, and competitive prices ;) Showers, toilets, and kitchen (complete with fridge, and silverware) were all clean. I was also very happy to have a... More

What can yoy say. Cheap and Clean. Bar open all night and morning ;) Stones throw from main boozing part. Also highly recommend Crazy Stag to organise your pranks. Biggy day hummer and kidnapping were quality. Stag a broken man.

This hostel is nice! The staff are helpful and it's in a convenient location in a superb city! The hostel is cheap and cheerful for what it is, don't expect luxury but you won't be horrified. The giraffe theme is carried out throughout the place which is a nice touch

My boyfriend and I stayed in a private double room in Hostel Giraffe for one night on an Interrailing trip in August 2013. We arrived from a night train just after 7am and, although we obviously couldn't have our room, it wasn't a problem to let us repack and wash quickly before locking our bags in the luggage room and...

We stayed in a private room with a double bed. Unfortunately there was only a single bed cover there... The staff wasn't very helpful, saying they didn't know if they could provide us with another one. No towels in private room... Also, there were some problems with cleanliness. And I mean not only with fungi on the walls in bathrooms,... More

I have been to four hostels till now and this was the only one that had breakfast included even though I paid only 10€. The downside is the amount of people in the same room, but this is what hostels are :) Lovely staff, always nice and helpful. The kitchen is very clean and the beds are already prepared for... More

Good and bad This hostel is very basic, cheap, and well located. The staff is helpful and knowledgeable. The really cool thing about this place is that they offer to wash your clothes for about 5$. This was a blessing because after 2 weeks of traveling, I really needed it. Overall, the facilities are clean. However, I got in late... More
