“Nice, clean, cosy place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Was there with friends last year and enjoyed it a lot! The recepcionist was very pleasant and so were the interiors! The balconies were a really nice place to relax with a cig and a beer. And there was an great vodka tasting event in the evening. Couldn't say more! Would definately come back if ever in Krakow.

I've been to this hostel twice now and thats not enough for me. I'm now going to work there!!!!! Visited firstly in 2012 in july and thought it was so good, went back for a holiday in september 2012. This place is unbelievable. The friendliest staff you could meet. So helpfull and full of advice. The rooms are perfect for what you pay. Spacious, comfortable and clean. I honestly couldnt recommend a better hostel anyehere. This place exeeds all expectations. The location is perfect. A very short walk to the heart of the city and nightlife. The activities the hostel staff hold are really really enjoyable. The pub crawls and tram parties are the best parties around. 11 out of 10 for this place. Faultless.

I stayed at this hostel for 4 nights and had a pretty lousy sleep every single one of those nights. The mattress is a thin IKEA one that was quite uncomfortable and my friend and I woke up every morning quite stiff and sore because of it. The pillow was also extremely lumpy. Quiet time is supposed to be between 10pm and 6am but people were often very loud until 12am and nothing was done about it.
Other than that the hostel is pretty good. Its in a really great location and it was easy to get to a lot of the sights. The showers were amazing.

Stayed here in September 2012 for a few nights and can honestly say I can barely fault the place! Stayed in the private room with a friend, it was clean and beds really comfy. The hostel is well located and within quick walking distance to Krakow Glowny station. Breakfast was standard and the really staff superb, helped us a lot with reccomendations and with filing a police report for a stolen iPod! The only downside was the noise really early hours of the mornings but this is hardly the hostels fault as it is recognised as a 'party' hostel. Overall good stay and would reccommend young travellers to stay here.

Nothing too fancy about this place but provides a great sleep and clean amenities. Helpful staff and efficient service. Located in the old town area, which is where you want to be, and close to main square and train/bus station.

We stayed in this hostel 2 nights because we had heard awesome reviews from friends. Unfortunately it was pretty quiet in Krakow cause it's November and party season is pretty much over. Could not fault the hostel though. Very clean and the showers were amazing. 10 minute lazy walk to the central train station which also has a shopping mall. Heaps of cool clubs and pubs just around the corner. Also heaps of CHEAP gourmet restaurants. Literally 2 minutes walk to Cracow tour company which take you to Auschwitz and the Salt Mines.

This hostel was the highlight of our Europe trip. We originally planned 2 days in krakow but extended it to 10 days largely due to the quality of the hostel and the people we met. This hostel is a comfortable environment for all ages and the rooms and bathrooms were 5 star hotel quality. I would definitely recommend pink panthers to anyone travelling to this cool city.
