It is one of the best Hostel to stay in Krakow. Right in the heart of the city next to the underground museum. Patryk and Monika made our stay more awesome by taking us for Pub Crawl. Will love to come back some day. It is a little cramped but it can be ignored because of all the other good... More

LOVED EVERYTHING!! Bart was a phenomenal and we felt welcome from the minute we stepped foot into the hostel. They made Krakow one of my favourite cities in Europe. Their recommendations for Polish food were amazing and I couldn't get enough of it. Would stay here again in a heart beat! Bart took us out every night that we were... More

In comparison with other hostels, this one is cramped and not well equipped. At another hostel in this city I went to there was a kitchen to cook in and free coffee in the morning whereas at Flamingo Hostel the free breakfast consisted of plain bread, slices of cheese and a sliced up tomato. Another drawback is that Flamingo Hostel... More

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
