So I stayed at Flamingo hostel for a long weekend and just got back yesterday. I stupidly left my ID there but the lovely manager assured me he would send it in the post to my address in Northern Ireland as he knew understood this was important for me, so for that I am very grateful and shows just how...

The bed was terrible, but otherwise it was a fine hostel at a fine price and located perfect in central Kraków. The staff was helpful and nice. It is a party-hostel so if you are young and up for some fun - you should def. go there. Breakfast included and cheap beer.

When we arrived at the hostel we were told that we would be in the other building 5 minutes down the road (we booked a private room). The apartment is still in a really good location, however it is old..and a bit creepy. We had a set of 4 keys which were colour coded and listed on a piece of... More

This was an amazing location to stay in. So easy to do anything and the staff were really helpful at pointing us in the right direction of tours. It's for both travels looking to meet new people and have a bit of a party plus couples and friends wanting a clean, friendly place to crash at the end of a... More

So stayed in this hostel because it was a party hostel. I wanted to meet some people since I am travelling alone. My room the 12 beds dorms was really really small to welcome 12 person.

Flamingo hostel appeared interesting due to the positive reviews. So I booked a single room with private bathroom. The location is great , the entry of the hostel itself more difficult. The flamingo outside is big but I still hustled to see it. I walked into this dark corridor , not sure which door to open and to enter. When... More

Good location, right in the heart of the city centre, just off of the market square! Small rooms with a nice shared bathroom BUT my partner woke up after our first night staying in Krakow covered in bed bug bites (50+ - Head to Toe). The staff were very apologetic, gave us a refund for that night and put us... More

The hostel is right on the edge of the city square-- aka party central!!!-- If you want to be right in the middle of all the youthful action, stay at the Flamingo! On the other hand however, it was also cool to explore the square during the day for all its history and architecture.

This hostel organise an amazing nightlife, the pub crawl they host every night is great and the staff are so much fun especially Ad! The room was basic but clean, and the shared bathroom was okay- we stayed in a 4 bed dorm. I definitely would recommend this hostel.

STANDBY!! A friend and I came here for a week too celebrate a birthday and upcoming travel plans. Both of us were appalled with the fact we could get everything on our doorstep... Seriously, it's an outrage that within 50 metres of the hostel you can get anything you may need, from the grocery shop across the road, the cigarette... More
