I love this hostel! It is a bit far from the centre of Zakopane - so if you want to stay only in Zakopane busy streets, you shouldnt go to this hostel. However if you are up to: hiking, chilling in the woods, relax in cozy place and enjoy the mountains in peace - this is the place to go! The hostel is not a touristic trap like many in the centre of Zakopane. It has amazing, laid back atmosphere, it is fully equipped, rooms are cozy, warm and clean. Bathrooms are modern and clean as well. There is also sauna, bonfire, bike trips if you are up to it, and an amazing garden straight from which you can enter Tatra Mountains National Park and hike in the various trails available just "around the corner". It is quiet around the hostel and you can fully chill and regenerate in the garden around. There is gas station and grocery shop around also, so we bought food and were cooking for 3 days in one of the kitchens in the hostel (which is an enormous save up of money, because prices in the zakopane restaurants are like these in the capital - Warsaw= expensive!) The owners are cool, easy going guys who are more than happy to help you with anything! I truly recommend this place and I will be back!…
The bathroom/shower in our rooms were looking like they were not cleaned for weeks. When we asked to clean it, the staff gave us the mop and said to clean ourselves. Not recommended for people who love clean shower. We were not told properly that we can't take a key with us during our stay. When we came back our things were found on reception without our permission. As well, staff demanded some more money for opening our room and taking our things out. Absolutely improper behaviour!!! The staff was awful. They were not able to accommodate us properly. At a night we arrived, they said that places are already taken and they will accommodate us in different rooms. It was awful experienced.
Beautiful and kind family with the warmest house. I couldnt have asked for a better place to have stayed at with my friends. There wasnt anything that we needed that they didnt help us find. I hope to find my way back there one day in the winter season.
I adored my stay at MTB Hostel! The hosts are a lovely Polish/Macedonian couple who made me feel instantly welcomed. They gave us plenty of advice on the hiking trails and looked out for us during the duration of our stay. The hostel is located very close to hiking trails and there is a beautiful view from the back paddock where you can also find reindeer(!!) which was absolutely magical. We were able to get pizza delivered which was also a bonus after a long day of hiking :) The hostel is homely, cozy, homely and quiet. I couldn't recommend this hostel more, it's a charmer!
We were deceived by the owner of MTB Hostel. We booked our room 3 months before our stay. At the day of our arrival (after the night in the train and whole day trip in the mountains) we called hostel to confirm reception hours and we were informed that our reservation was cancelled. The owner was claiming to send us an email with this information two days before and that we need to find something else by ourselves. It was the most popular long weekend in Poland (15/08) and everything was booked. The owner informed us that it is not his problem. One day before our arrival we actually received from hostelworld reminder about our stay and reconfirmation of the booking. We had several unpleasant phone calls with MTB hostel. Mister Michal agreed to find us another place to stay only after we informed him that we will come to the hostel with the police. First two days we stayed in another guesthouse and we needed to pay more than we were supposed to pay to the MTB hostel. For the last day the MTB owner found us a room in another guesthouse which was around 2 km from our first location. He didn’t provide us with any transport. Moreover at the arrival at the new place we were supposed to receive the price difference which we overpaid in the other location, however the person who hosted us was not informed about it. Only after her support we manage to receive money MTB owned us. This complication didn’t allow us to follow the plan we had for the last day of our long weekend, we lost several hours on disputes, changing locations and explaining situation to people from other guesthouses who gave us support. We had a lot of stress and we were treated by MTB owner without respect and didn’t even hear a sorry word from him. At the end we found the cancellation email in spam. Cancellation was sent 40 hours before our arrival and not via hostelworld - completely against policy. I’ve been in plenty of hostels in my life but such a thing never happened to me before. I would not recommend staying at this hostel. I could understand that problems with rooms can occur, but the level of disrespect and the lack of help on such a situation is inadmissible.…
An intimate warm place full positive energy and very nice hosts. Nice mixture between mounting bike adrenalin and relaxing atmosphere. Nature, mountain air and rain dears it's more than enough to recharge your batteries ...
5 minutes from many hiking trails. Few minutes by bus from Zakopane. Quiet and clean rooms, good service. You can spend time in the sauna to recover after a difficult trek. Owner and his wife are very helpful.
Only nice things to tell about mtb :) therefore I could only recommend you to stay there, the owners are amazing people, so friendly and welcoming! A bit outside of zakopane, but touristy crowded centre is very easy to reach and they have a lot of free parking places :) the rooms are very comfortable and the interior temperature always ideal!

So – there is a hostel, it is mean we know what we can expect in term of conditions – shared and twin/ double room with shared bathroom/ kitchen. However I have to admit- place is very tidy and clean, with place for grill and sauna. The big positive is placing- very close to Koscieliska valley. But the biggest value – the greatest friendly atmosphere, the owner is very open minded and supportive, you feel that you enfolded in care and will find all help which you need (if any :) – and there is very important in mountains
What a great place to stay! It gives you the real feel of the polish hospitality and the taste of local traditions and culture. I have been in many hotels in Zakopane, but the place i fell in love with - is MTB hostel. Once you get inside you will be surrounded by the warm and welcoming atmosphere that Anna and Michal (the hosts) create there. They are really amazing and warmhearted people. The Hostel is so close to Koscieliska Valley and many other trails - ideal for the mountain trips. It is very clean and very cosy inside. The grounds outside are green and large - so you can chill there as long as you want or make a fire in the evening as there is a special place for it. I will be back there soon! ;-)))
