This hostel is a short walk from the train station and about 20 minutes from the old town (even further from the Jewish quarter and castle). We paid £13 each for a double room which I think is quite cheap, especially as breakfast was included as well as a free shot in the hostel bar! The free breakfast consisted of... More

We stayed at Hostel Giraffe whilst on a Stag do, there were 9 of us and we stopped in a pretty spacious 12 bed dormitory. The lockers in the room were pretty good and overall the hostel was very secure. The showers were very good too, quite unusual for a hostel in my experience. Overall, we all enjoyed our stay... More

My friends and I just stayed at Giraffe in Krakow last week and I highly recommend this place to everyone. The upside: - the included bar is really nice to hang out at, I highly recommend trying the free vodka shot (take the walnut one!) - the personel is great. Really friendly people, a great example of Polish hospitality. -... More

Great place, nice atmosphere, good beds, good showers. The breakfast we poor but at least was there. They have locker in the room. The only problem is that they don't give you a towel and you need to rend one. It has a good location too

The hostel is average; it is clean, the staff is friendly, and the location is not too far from the city center with restaurants and an energetic nightlife. You get a free shot upon arrival :) The room was a bit hot, and the shared showers were not my favorite, but it's a good bang for the buck.

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.

This hostel is very affordable! I was pleased to find it well kept, with english speaking staff! There is a bar inside the Hostel which is quite nice. 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
