“Good hostel, but messy administration”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

This hostel is great - it has good value and the staff is very friendly. Best place to get beer and huge pizzas in Krakow.

However, one downside is that the administration is not very good, our beds were taken by other people even though they were marked with our names - they did compensate this with free vodka.

The staff as said is very friendly, ours were stolen for some reason and we received free towels.

Could recommend again if the administration improves, for the rest it was a great experience to stay here.

Thank you for the review. Administration issues are caused by circumstances beyond our control, like guests changing beds in dorms without letting us know. Although to avoid this kind of situations in the future we put into effect new beds allocation system. Kind regards.

We stayed here for four nights - originally three but we just had to extend! On arrival we were able to leave our luggage till check in time and also sign up to a free meal they provide. Our room was super clean and all the guests were amazing. We definitely met some of the best people from our trip here. Dinner was good and as it was free even better. They hold fantastic pub crawls/tram parties etc. Breakfast is so cheap for what they offer. Hostel staff are so welcoming and friendly. My friend lost her purse and they went out there way to call up the clubs we had been to on the pub crawl to try and find it. As part of the Greg and Tom chain, it definitely seemed like this one had the best to offer with lots of guests from the party hostel coming here to head out. The bar/restaurant and music playing creates a fantastic vibe at night time.

Would definitely recommend.

Brilliant hostel, ticks all the boxes - location, amenities, cleanliness, friendly staff, wifi etc. There's even a modern, fully fitted kitchen with a dishwasher and everything upstairs which I was impressed with! The free dinner and all-you-can-eat breakfast for only €2.50 are incredible and such a great feature! The bar is great craic, the showers are amazing - if you're going to Krakow, this is the place to stay!

This hostel was excellent. However, if you are not a party person it can be very loud. People come in at 4 am regardless of the day. If it is peace and quiet you are looking for, look elsewhere. Other than that, the location is excellent. 5 mins from the train station and 5 mins from Market Sq. Staff are amazing and will do anything to help. Hostel is clean. Key card access to bedrooms (but no lockers). Tours are bookable through the hostel. Hostel bar is a great place to meet fellow travelers which is good when you are backpacking alone. Overall, fantastic place.

Thank you for the great review. We do have a lockers under the beds and you can hire (for free) a padlock at the reception. Also we have a curfew at 11pm and the reception staff takes care to keep the hostel as quiet as possible. Although indeed we are party oriented hostel. Good to hear you had here such a fantastic time. Cheers.

When I first walked into Greg and Tom Beer House Hostel, I had my doubts. I was travelling solo, and it was my first time in Poland. Any sort of worry was immediately washed away, though, by the amazing staff and the great people this place seems to attract. Every night there were pub crawls - if that is your thing - as well as a number of cultural tours of the city and surrounding areas every day. The showers were also the best I've found in any hostel anywhere.
