This hostel in Krakow is THE place to be. You cannot get any closer to the centre if you tried and it is quite literally next door to the nightlife. I would say this is more of a young backpackers hostel and definitely not somewhere to stay if you want peace and quiet, it can get a bit noisy! The... More

Don't be put off by your first impressions of the hostel, I was a bit unsure when first arriving. The hostel was great and probably one of the better ones I stayed in during my 3 weeks of travels. The location of the hostel is reLly good, just off the main square so you are very near to everything. If... More

I would recommend this hostel purely based on the brilliant location as long as you don't mind a relative amount of noise during the night however the hostel do provide ear plugs. I stayed in a double room with a friend but it was wrongly described as a double room. It was a single bed with a couple of inches... More

The room were quite comfortable, quite spacious, the toilet was really clean. The stuff was really kind. They even organize pubcrawling stuff, that's really really cool to enjoy the nightlife. Breakfast was good too. INSIDE the centrum.

My friend and I stayed in a two bed apartment which had the most beautiful view of the city. Clean and tidy. Hostel itself if lots of fun, great for meeting people. Bar crawl every night, lots of fun. Staff are friendly, helpful, answer any questions and sort any issues immediately. Would definitely come back.

I stayed in Flamingo hostel during the first 3 nights in Cracow. After a good night of sleep the day started with a free breakfast. The hostel is clean and staff is friendly. WiFi isn't the fastest, but if you are looking for an inexpensive stay in a clean hostel with a perfect location, this hostel is perfect for you.

Good location just off the main market square in the old town. Easy to find, right near everything you could want, friendly staff, cheap and decent evening food and free breakfast with lots of information about things to do. Would recommend staying here, Auschwitz and the salt mines are a must do!

Room Type: Double Bed Private Shared Bathroom This hostel has a great central location and is situated just off the main square (Rynek Główny), where you have an abundance of bars and eateries. The beauty of Krakow is that everything is accessible by foot, if you don't mind walking that is, and we never had the need to take public... More

Lovely place, clean, sociable, great location! Organised a day trip for us to Auschwitz making getting there so easy for us. Stayed in a 2-bed room with a shared bathroom, was great! Would definitely recommend staying here!
