This was a brilliantly located hostel with great facilities. Breakfast was also really good and the hostel sold tickets for various trips which was helpful. Everyone staying there was really friendly helping to make you feel welcomed. We stayed in a double room and the only complaint was the room was pretty small and the bed was poor quality -... More

This hostel I cannot emphasize how good the location is. It is located about as close to everything as you can possibly get. The hostel received a four star because I didn't like the atmosphere with all the flamingoes, and also the beds were very creaky. The receptionists were all very nice, and I would definitely recommend this place. They... More

I and two friends stayed at Flamingos hostel two nights in beginning of Mars. The hostel i s perfectly situated only 50 meters from the main square and 10-15 min walk from the main train station. There is an abundance of restaurant and shops around and the closest night clubs are just across the street. As for the hostel facilities... More

When you book this hostel make sure you know, where exactly are you going to stay. If you book a private twin room, it means the room is based not where the actual hostel is, but in a different apartment around 5-7 min walk from the hostel itself, right outside the city centre park. We stayed at Podwale apartment's room,... More

Also, the atmosphere is wondeful, as there is a comfortable common room suitable for all kinds of activities. Totally recoomend this place, would definitely come back!

It is very cheap ok, but we only had problems there. In the begining there were no beds available for us even though we had a reservation; they managed to get us our 3 beds but only 2 lockers. Very noisy at night, which is not usually a problem, but this time i had a huge guy sleeping snoring sitting... More

This hostel is located in the perfect place and right in the centre. However everything else was pretty awful. Our room was shared with 4 other males along with myself and my other female friend. We arrived to a room that was smelly, and boxer shorts scattered all over the room. The beds were old and the bedding was dirty... More

Thanks for feedback! Yes, we party in the hostel, Cracow is full of magic, and also full of pubs, restaurants and clubs. And I think You were unlucky to be in dorm with guys, who don't know the "moderation". But we are here to solve all the problems when they occure, so next time ask reception to help or change...

Great place to stay in Krakow and enjoy the city. The hostel is well-organized, clean and with a good location. The staff of the hostel is very friendly, makes everyone feel comfortable and can throw a great pre-party before hitting the bars. Amazing place!
