Great place to stay. Can't beat the location (although have ear plugs for the club next door if you want to have an early night). Staff are very friendly and helpful. Social events every night. Worth it

Flamingo Hostel was in a great location, just off the main square. The common area was very comfortable, though the wifi wasn't great. It's a great hostel for socialising as the staff organise various nights out from the hostel each night! 30złoty covers entry into a number of clubs and a lot of shots in the hostel! While, it's great... More

I hate sharing with strangers! I dislike smelly rooms! I prefer not to be kept awake by bad music from rubbish clubs! YOU might like it, I didn't. Krakow is lovely however. Visit Krakow but if you're a miserable thirty-something like me, best book into a hotel.

One of the best hostel I ve ever been and the best among the 4 hostels I ve been in Poland. Great staff and very friendly. The hostel is perfectly located next to Krakow Main Square right in the city center. Parties are organized by the staff which is a good way to meet people and go out when you... More

We came here off the recommendation of another friend from a seperate hostel when we knew we were going to come through Krakow. The hostel itself is in tip top shape, very clean and the staff were very helpful. They really go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. The most outstanding thing about the hostel is the...

This hostel is very good for meeting people and having a great time in krakow. The manager Bart organises a great pub crawl for the guests. When I was there, 80% of the people staying at the hostel came out on the crawl. However, if it's luxury you are after, you won't find it at flamingos. The mixed dorm doesn't... More

If you are going to Krakow you must stay here! The staff are incredible, the first night we arrived they ran a pub crawl. Bart, the hostel manager, ran the pub crawl and it was the best night of our 30 day trip, hands down! He got everyone from the hostel from all over the world mixing in with drinking... More

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.
