“Loved it!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2008

Greg and crew were awesomel! My husband and I traveled around Europe for 3 months and during that time stayed in many different hostels, hotels, etc (in 9 different countries). Elephant on the Moon is not your typical hostel. The rates were great, the morning breakfast was just right, the hosts were helpful but not in your face and gave us GREAT recommendations on food and day trips! The best part for us was meeting so many great people! We've made friends from England and Australia and liked the place and people so much that we extended our stay from the original 4 nights to a full 7 nights to make sure we captured everything about Krakow. You don't need a car if you stay here, walking to downtown is easily done (and it's right by the river too) or the tram stop is about 1 block away . It's like you truly have your own personal tour guides.
We even talked Aga into learning the Phase 10 card game so she could play with us in the evenings! She was great!!
Greg and Kate, the owners are fantastic...everyone is...it's a must for our next time in Krakow and we will be back!!

  • Liked — the ability to have our own separate room and the fact that it's a small personal boutique hostel.
  • Disliked — nothing.
  • Stayed October 2007, traveled as a couple

This is a first class hostel. Good location at the end of the Salwator Tramline.Within walking distance of the old town and the Jewish district.Close to the walk along the Vistula river.Easy to pick up the bus to Oswiecen -area of the camps. Greg,Kate,Aga and Ann could not be more helpful. Overall a great experience.

  • Disliked — shared bathroom
