Great hostel in an amazing location. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Lovely communal area and the place is quite safe with needing a buzzer to get in. Only downside is the bedrooms are very cramped and one bathroom for 12!

I came here with a friend to learn about Auschwitz, with a tour to the Wieliczka salt mine. It was booked by the staff with no bother at all. We settled in very quickly. The other guests at the hostel were a pleasure to be around, we didn't really intend on exploring the nightlife, but we were extremely glad that... More

It was only when i left flamingo for another hostel that i realized how good it was. I can say that it almost felt like home, since the manager to all the staff, everyone helps you and takes care of you like you are family! Rooms are clean, when you receive white sheets on a hostel you know the staff... More

I was in Krakow a lot of time, trying different hostels, hotels and places, but for sure I can say that every time I visit the Flamingo, I really feel like home. People are so nice, the romms very clean and they help you in visiting city. The first time I was there, in 2008, I was surprised by the... More

We stayed there 3 night in November. The hostel was clean, the staff was helpful and kind. They give us a lot of recommendations about places to visit. The hostel is well located (2 minutes walk from main square) on a bit noisy street. The price also included the breakfast, which was pretty good.

Stayed in this hostel as a group of 6 girls in summer 2013 for three nights. It is the most amazing location - right off the main square and near to all the good clubs! The staff were sooo helpful and can organise any tours you would like to the main attractions which was useful. They were also great with... More

We were looking for a hostel and found the flamingo hostel online. The price looked right so we went there. They sent us to their other building but this was not a bad thing. At first, I was a little frustrated that we had to go somewhere else. We were a couple and in the other building we got a... More

Excellent value.. staff good.. good recommendation from Paul on Reception for food. Facilities excellent and location fantastic. Breakfast little disappointing but was complimentary. How secure? Not sure.. any young person could be buzzed in and walk by Reception as no key or identity checks.

I'm so glad we stayed at this hostel. It was excellent value for money and the location (just off the Main Square) was terrific. We had a private room with en-suite which was clean and comfortable. The hostel felt safe and the staff were friendly. Its only fault was that we couldn't turn the heating down/off in the room meaning... More

I stayed here for 4 nights as part of a recent euro trip....www.euro-by-rail.blogspot.com. (includes photos of the Hostel). The hostel is in a great location, just off the main square. Good security as entry is only allowed after pressing intercom. Friendly staff on the reception are very helpful. The rooms them selves are kept clean. I stayed in 12 person... More
