This place deserves all the good press it gets. We were two Aussies travelling around and found this place by chance on TripAdvisor. The place is cosy, warm, clean, comfy and when you've been on the road for weeks, it's invaluable to find a place that feels a little like home. Absolutely stunning surroundings too. The owner/receptionist, Marjena, was so... More

Had a great week at the Goodbye Lenin. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, organising transport, helping us order food and generally just being friendly and welcoming. We were a large group of 12 but they were always more than happy to help out with whatever we needed. The breakfast was fantastic value for money and there was always... More

Goodbye Lenin hostel, what can I say they looked after all twelve of us extremely well!! All the staff were helpful and all were so friendly. Sometimes a group that size can be quite intimidating but you all got involved and helped us all with pizza, restocking of the fridge and transport. FANTASTIC place. Thank you all and see you...

We stayed some days in this hostel, the ambiance was great with a good staff, very helpful ! We enjoyed the ski slopes and the mountain views ! The bus stop is just near from the hostel, so it's easily to go skiing or to diner in the center.

What a great place! Staff were great, we felt really welcome and the vibe is incredible. The staff were really friendly and quite helpful. We hired ski and snowboarding gear for a very good price for the day from GBL. We stayed in the double room where everything was clean and tidy when we arrived. Even though it is located... More

We had a great experience at GBL, if a little unusual. There was a power cut for the first night/day of our 2 night stay so no power/hot water. Stan offered us a full refund when we arrived to find the power was out and said he would understand if we wanted to stay elsewhere, but also said we could... More

Great community feel, they'll make you feel right at home. It has a small capacity and a great common room so you really get to know each other. I'll definitely stay longer next time! Shout out to Tom, Alice and Stan!

I spent so much time in Zakopane and the Tatras during my one night stay that I got a chance to witness the great atmosphere here but not a full opportunity to appreciate it. I got a great night's sleep there in the dorm. During breakfast, it was a great opportunity to meet fellow travellers and I got some great... More
