“Quality Hostel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

I was looking for a place on short notice and spied Greg and Tom’s Home Hostel and booked it quickly for the last bed open. When I arrived later in the day the staff members were super friendly and I was surprised that I even got a free meal with the bed. Food was decently tasty and it was great to be able to visit with other guests in the kitchen. Wifi was good on both the main and upper levels. The one downside was that there was only one shower and bathroom area per floor but it still didn’t get too crowded with waiting. G&T’s did end up getting nice and quiet which was a good break compared to some of the rowdier hostels in Krakow. Unfortunately I didn’t get much sleep because a family staying in my quad room were chronic snorers but that’s hardly the hostel’s fault. I know they can also organize tours but I didn’t take advantage of that. It’s got a great location near to the train station and I’d definitely stay here again.

Wasn't sure what to expect as I don't usually stay in shared accommodation. I was in a mixed dorm of five beds. I checked in very early having come off the night train from Vienna and was able to have breakfast, shower etc before going off on a tour. Staff are great and are helpful and happy. There is free breakfast and dinner provided every night and usually more than a few free drinks. Even though krakow is super cheap compared to other parts of Europe i always love free stuff! Also there is free wireless Internet and a few computers if you don't have a smartphone etc. even though there was one toilet and two showers between about eleven people on my floor (the reception floor) getting to use either wasn't a problem. Facilities are very clean too. This is a very social hostel and I made quite a few friends here during my four days. I'd stay here again no problem.

Was recommended Greg&Tom hostel for a short trip with (student) friends - although the rooms are basic, they are still great value for money and there was bery little we could fault. Particularly loved the way we could easily hop between hostels for the drinking sessions - staff were fantastic, alcohol was great and appreciated the fact that people were on hand to give us krakow info, tell us where/where not to go and make sure we had the best time! Thoroughly recommend!

Fantastic value for money & straight across from the train station. Centrally located in the city. We stayed here in late November & early December 2013. Perks are free breakfast & dinner. It's not great but hey its free. Rooms are clean. Free internet. Downside is the beds aren't great but for the price, I couldn't complain. Staff are friendly & willing to help out. Felt very welcome :)

Room Tip: If you have the money, get your own room rather than sharing.

Staff is wonderful, very welcoming, helpful, and easy to talk to. Great place to meet nice people, drink free beer, eat free breakfest, and dinner. Free wifi, computers, tv, gaming systems, and dvds. Almost like your staying with friends and not just a customer. If your staying in krakow this is the place to be.

I received a warm welcome on arrival at Greg & Tom Hostel. The first thing the receptionist said to me was, "Are you here to party or to look around?". When I responded the latter, she was relieved and happy - I was the first person she'd spoken to in over a week who wasn't there to party (not that I don't enjoy a party, but I can do that anywhere). That sums up this hostel - it buzzes, there's lots of coming and going (at all hours), and it's noisy. But the staff are really helpful, and the location is good - very close to the railway station and easy walking to the city. Breakfast and dinner were included in the dorm rate. The dorms were basic, but clean. My only comment would be that the showers don't offer much privacy (only curtains), and there aren't many showers or toilets. But that's dorm life!
