“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

This is a large hostel, the rooms are spotless clean, the staff were very helpful and friendly. This hostel is located 5 min walk from main square. The only drawback is only one computer with internet access and poor WIFI signal. This is the perfect hostel to explore Krakow

Can't say enough good things about this place. Not a big hostel, so the showers, toilets, ect were always available but there was just enough people there that if you felt like socializing you could.

Spotless hostel, one of the cleanest I've ever stayed at.

Also, the staff were very accommodating and helpful. One of them even ran out to get me pierogies for dinner (and cooked them!) because I missed out on the pierogie night that was going on.

Would definitely recommend staying here if you're visiting Krakow.

Spent like 2 night there. All good. Staff helpful, looking good girls and neat guys. Anything I asked for what there for me in a minute. Kitchen, bed, shower, toiled would rate just 5/5. If Poland, Krakow again, would be this Mosquito again. Wondering who the hell made this name :)

Located next door to a fabulous farmers market where everything is sold, produce, meat cheese, clothing, leather goods, souvenirs, and more..The Very helpful hostel staff will insure you have an informative and enjoyable stay. A Well run hostel. We had an awesome private room with really nice bath and little balcony. An enjoyable graphic of the Mosquito mascot was on our wall. The staff was a wealth of information and were very helpful in helping us arrange our activities during our stay. The hostel offers day trips to the Salt mine and other places, has discount cards for restaurants along with good local maps. They have an event every night and they are well organized fun, whether it be a dinner, trivia or drinking games! The staff spoke a variety of languages and we felt very comfortable and welcome. A really great hostel, one of the best !!!

In the 5 months that I've been travelling on my own throughout all of Europe this hostel has been by far one of the best!

I originally booked 4 nights which turned into 6; and from the moment I was greeted at the reception I could already feel the warm atmosphere of the place.

I stayed in a 12 bed dorm, the hostel itself had a very intimate feel about it, small so it was easy to meet people. The facilities were great, kitchen was immaculate and very well equipped, breakfast was great with bread, cheese, ham, cereals, yoghurt and to my surprise also salad. Tea and coffee all day, wifi was great.

They run themed nights every night; from free food to free alcohol, Angelica is awesome at getting everyone involved, and each night the girls take everyone out who's keen to a bar and club.

Location is perfect, 5 mins walking to the market square of old town. The only trouble I had was opening to doors with the key.. they can be a bit tricky but you can just press the buzzer if you can't get in.

Highly recommend this hostel to anyone visiting krakow, you won't meet more young energetic staff then this.

The staff of the Hostel, formed by beautiful and helpful girls, it is a very positive point. Also, to my surprise, some of them speak Portuguese very well ;). The hostel is very well located and very clean and organized, both the single room, where I spent the first night, as the mixed rooms. Every day some event happens :D
