The staff was great, but the pub crawl karaoke was one of the most disturbing things I have ever heard at a hostel in my life. The room door was paper thin, so we could forget about trying to sleep until after midnight. Great location, very good staff, but I wish that the pub crawl did not start right next... More

Great value hostel In central location. We stayed in private rooms a few blocks from main hostel. Rooms were clean and light. Tea and coffee avaliable in spotless kitchen. Staff at hostel were friendly and gave loads of information about cheap drinks and good eats. Close to walk to main attractions.

Travelling with my daughter around Poland, Flamingo Hostel provided the ideal stopover in Krakow. Just off the main square and with a twin apartment available, this was ideal for father and daughter and good value. Even got breakfast and a karaoke evening thrown in !

Ideal location in the city. It was a fun, modern and clean place. Plus the staff was very cool. = perfect stay with friends There are some small rooms (double, twins or 3-bed rooms) if you like to be cosy and not to sleep in a dormitory

Clean, cheap, cheerful and full of fun- everyone there was real nice, and helped us to get around the cuty: made our time in Krakow a real treat. Very, very central: great if you want to explore city and sites on foot. Yummy, completely loved it- definitely recommend.

This hostel seems average at best. The rate is cheap, which is good, and you essentially get a bed for the night. However the showers are cold, the free breakfast is stale, the wifi often stops working, the bedside lamps are broken and on a Friday night the bar was closed and there was absolute silence in the common room....

What was intended to be a short hoilday in Krakow ended up turning into a ten-day stay, and that was partly due to my time at Flamingo Hostel :) I was well looked after when I was there, anything I wanted to know about Krakow the staff always had an answer for me, they make a mean latte, and we...
