Property Information:

Where should I start with a place like Flamingo?
Maybe with the countless top 'something' awards? Boring.
Should I talk about the superb location which continues to stay exactly as it was in previous years? Boring.
The delicious free breakfast? Find me a hostel in Krakow that doesn't offer free breakfast!
So what's so good about Flamingo? Why should you stay here and not at one of Krakow's numerous other award-winning, centrally-located, free breakfast-giving hostels?

It's all about the way we make you feel. Want to feel at home? Done. Want to feel spoiled? Done. Want to be shown how to fully appreciate this magic city? Just try and stop us!

First-time guests are always impressed when they first enter our common room. The plasma TV, the lying-down length couches, the street view. You can play Your own music on our hi-fi. But what's a beautiful common room without a super friendly atmosphere? And BAR? Faboulous drinks, cold shots, drinkin' polish style :) That's where we move ahead of the competition. Our staff are friendly and helpful because they want to be, not because they have to be. That's why Flamingo is so popular and such a great hostel: happy staff = happy guests!

Come to Flamingo and join in the fun!

P.S. We do have free breakfast, free linen, free lockers, free luggage storage, 24 hour reception, tourist information and tour bookings, free Internet, free maps, DVDs, books, board games and free vodka shots (That last part is not a lie - we certainly don't have free vodka every day because sometimes it's beer or wine)... And we have nice bar!

We organize parties for our guests, but that's a surprise. Ask the receptionist at the arrival...

Please note: Stag party groups are not accepted at this hostel. All stag party bookings will be cancelled and the 10% deposit will not be refunded.

    Great hostel, great vibe! Signed up for the hostel dinner with Bart and next thing I knew we were several vodka shots in and singing karaoke. Had a lot of fun that night but ended up sleeping on the floor in our dorm. Amazing place but time to leave.
