Flamingos receives a lot of terrific reviews. They're all bang on. The hostel is absolutely superb; one of the best, probably the best, hostel I've ever stayed at. It has the quintessential hostel experience and you leave only wanting more. The facilities are excellent - toilets, showers, and bedrooms are regularly cleaned, there is a washing machine and rails to... More

On my last holiday, I backpacked around Europe for 3 weeks, staying in many different hostels, but nothing could compare to my fantastic experience at the Flamingo Hostel. I was only there for a few days, but it was the highlight of my trip. As far as basic necessities go, the rooms were spotless, toilets & showers were cleaned regularly,... More

I stayed in flamingo's flat. Good price and good service. It included breakfast and the staff was nice. Really near the city centre. I recommend it, I had breakfast in the hostel and it looked nice but a bit hidden.

The reason why I stayed at Flamingo Hostel was because it got a 90% rating on my hostel booking website as well as a high rating on TripAdvisor. Honestly, I was slightly disappointed after 3 nights at this hostel. One big advantage is the central, strategic location. You will obviously get some noise at night, but if you don't like... More

I stayed for 4 nights. The place was great, friendly staff, ok breakfast, and the hostel was designed in a way that it was easy to meet people. The only real drawback was that the sheet was too small for the bed, apart from that I recommend this hostel.

Flamingo Hostel was a great place with friendly staff and great facilities. The common room was a great place for meeting other travelers and a good base for a few drinks before exploring Krakow. New Zealand lads

This hostel has such great fun and friendly staff, the staff are always up for a good time and can get you in the mood for a great night ahead. The bar crawl is absolutely epic and Bartosz has superb banter. On top of all this the hostel is located in a perfect area with tourist attractions close by. The... More

After a very short walk from the train station we were welcomed by very friendly staff upon arrival. The facilities are brilliant and hard to fault and the price of food and drink is more than value for money. I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone thinking of visiting Krakow, think it would be hard to find a better... More

The hostel is really welcoming and they organise a lot of things for you to do cheaply. The bathrooms and showers are very clean. The only downside is that there aren't cooking facilities for guests but eating out is so cheap it doesn't really matter. I would definitely reccomend staying here if you are visiting krakow.
