“Can't ask for more”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Agreeing with many other reviews, Mosquito was a perfect introduction to Krakow. Arriving late'ish on a Thursday night (following good directions on how to walk from the bus station), Anje immediately welcomed me, sat me down with a map and pointed out food, activities, locations, and more nearby. It was also shisha night, and then a visit to a few local bars. Friendly fellow hostellers, and heading out with the super friendly staff was a great way to discover some nightlife. No idea where we went though...!!

Stayed there two seperate nights. First night in an empty 10-bed dorm, which was 100% functional, and the second in a private room. The walls were pretty thin, so sleep wasn't great with people coming and going, even though I was in my own room.

Cleanliness - big tick. On all fronts. Rooms, common areas, bathrooms. Nice interesting tips in the bathroom too!

Highly recommend.

I have recently come back from staying at the mosquito hostel and cannot say enough good things about it! This was the first hostel I have stayed in and it didnt disappoint. The rooms and showers were spotless. Hostel staff superb - we were recommended places to eat and they were fantastic! Every night they have a different activity on and take people who wants to go out, out for the night! Location is amazing too - 5 minutes walk from maim square. If your looking for a hostel that feels like home this is the place for you.

Krakow is one of my favourite places in the world and I think this hostel had much to do with that. The staff were so nice And welcoming, they cooked you dinner every night! And had lots of social activities planned for the nights. This was the first place I travelled to by myself and I I felt safe and made heaps of new friends. I highly recommend this to everyone, and will be back again hopefully soon!

The developer and staff at the Mosquito Hostel have thought of literally everything a backpacker would need in a hostel. Everything from a full introduction and information seminar of the hostel and the City of Krakow upon arrival, daily free breakfast and oftentimes home-cooked dinners, group activities lead by genuinely fun people (that take hostellers out AFTER working their own 6-hour desk shift), to "interesting sayings" and "things to consider" as well as "scam warnings" in the bathroom (who ever thought of putting up this type of "reading material" is a genius!). This place is a benchmark of what other hostels need to follow. I've stayed in hostels for more than 13 years, and this place is truly one of the best I've ever stayed in. They rightfully deserve all their awards.

I love mosquito!! It is the best place that I have ever stayed and I felt at home from the moment I walked in the door!
To start with it is an easy 5min walk from the train station and then another 5min to the old town square! It is on the second floor of a building behind a big iron gate- which may look a bit scary at first when you are trying to find the place!
The hostel itself is clean, with warm showers, 2 common areas (one for noise and games, the other for chilling out) and a great kitchen!
Wifi and breakfast are included and the breakfast is really good (especially considering it is free).
There are also movies, games and a tv, as well as a couple of computers! A washing machine is also available to use with no charge!
The staff here AMAZING!! Nothing is too much trouble! They have a fantastic system where the staff member who finishes work for the night takes everyone from the common room who is drinking/wanting to go out to a bar and then onto a club (no pressure only if you want to go!!) This means that everyone can have fun together in a big group AND all noise stops early for those staying there who would like to get a good nights rest! In addition, they usually cook something for everyone to eat earlier in the evening!!
I could not recommend mosquito enough- I never wanted to leave!! If you go to krakow STAY HERE!!
