Just back from a 4 night stay here and both myself and my friend I was travelling with were thoroughly impressed. Aga is extremely helpful, very nice and funny, too. She helped us plan our days there and provided us with a great breakfast each morning (cereal, bread, jam etc - you were free to cook for yourself also). She... More

We stayed in Krakow in Feb. 2014 on a trip through Poland. This hostel was a GREAT experience. Aga emailed us ahead of time and told us about the weather and how to find the hostel. The location was a little out of the city centre, but was at the end of three tram lines. The trams in Krakow worked... More

I had a wonderful experience here. Aga was extremely friendly and helpful with anything I needed. It had more of a bed and breakfast feel to me than a hostel. It is a little way out of market square but was easy enough to get to within 10 minutes via walking and tram (probably would have been a nice walk... More

I stayed here for 2 nights and it was wonderful! In fact, I had the entire hostel to myself. The host, Aga, was super friendly and she gave me great tips and in general excellent conversation :) We bonded over our love for mystery novels and detective series. I would highly recommend this hostel. It is very, very clean and... More

I recently stayed here and got upgraded to a private room which was super lovely. The hostel is a little out of the city, but this is what I loved about it, it was in a residential area of krakow so perfect for solo travellers and families. The rooms are spacious, warm and modern. Breakfast was included which was a... More

It is a long time since I had stayed in a hostel and this one was a delightful place to spend a week. We received a very warm welcome from Aga (who runs the hostel) and were shown to simply furnished but very clean and fresh rooms. Each room has a theme and an explanation for the theme which was...

Staying at the 'Elephant' was an absolute joy, especially thanks to Aga who runs it. The day we arrived she was waiting for us and immediately knew us by name. When she found out I was lactose-intolerant she went to the store to get soy milk so I could have cereal for breakfast without me ever asking for it. The... More

I stayed at the Elephant on the Moon Hostel in Krakow at the beginning and end of my five week trip to Poland and it saved me. I was so stressed out and jet lagged when I arrived at midnight after a long trip on LOT, that I could not do much of anything for a day or two. Plus... More
