You could not pick a better hostel! We have never stayed in a hostel before and were apprehensive over what to expect. However when the lovely couple in front of us were checking in with their baby we knew this had to be a safe and clean hostel. The staff were tremendous! They constantly went out of there way to help and could not have been nicer. The location was fantastic!!! You could not pick a better hostel and I highly recommend it.

The staff were absolutely fantastic, I cannot understate this. They were amazing. However the hostel was very loud at all times due to location, I had random junk in the room I was staying.

The location for this hostel is perfect but unfortunately nothing else is that great. We arrived to dirty bed sheets which had hairs and stains over them which made us doubt whether they had even been changed. The bathroom/toilet room however was always kept clean and we never had a problem with those. The key system in the hostel was not great as we had to leave our key at reception each time we went out but when we came back and asked for our key were not asked for ID as proof it was our room

Hey Amy! The bed sheets are being washed every day and during the check-in You get fresh ones. If there was a mistake You should ask us for new ones - don't be shy! If the showers and toilets were clean why would You give us only 3 for facilities and 3 for cleaniness? About the key - we need it at the reception for Your safety - and we do ask people for they ID's if we are not sure they live here - if we know You - we wont bother You. Hope to see You again! We will ask You for ID every time!

Stayed here for three days in June. Cracow is a beautiful city and the hostel is located two steps from the main square. This hostel should be a very nice place following the other reviews in here, but during our stay, a group of British people was almost continuously drunk, they were shouting in the corridors and so on so it was almost impossible to fall asleep. Staff kicked them out of the bar on 4AM!!! in the morning. Bathrooms are disgusting but imo staff does everything to keep it clean...

We are sorry that You feel so bad about Your stay at Flamingo, but the fact is, that we try to keep everybody happy, and in this particular case letting other guests be drunk was the way... It's too bad, that You didn't ask us to calm them down earlier... About bathrooms - most of our guests are satisfied with cleaniness, our staff cleans the facilities every two hours and every few weeks we paint the walls... I can bet, that if You come again Your review would be much different.

The staff was very friendly and welcoming. However, the street seems to be a party street and we were awoken to drunken yelling and nonsense nearly every hour. And this was a Thursday. All in all, a nice place.

This is main square - this is the place that never sleeps... Okay, it sleeps, but only sometimes.

Excellent location, friendly staff and good continental breakfast provided. No complaints. As we had a late return fligth they were happy for us to store our belongings for free and relax in the communal room as we wished. The most central location you will find. Easy to find as its next door to McDonalds and there is a shop across the road for any things you may wish to buy.

The hostel itself is pretty average, the pub crawls were an okay way to start the night, but more fun to go off after it ended. Free breakfast was a plus, but there were school kids there which made it a bit odd.

I was totally disappointed about this hostel. My bed had a hole in the middle and was difficult to sleep. They offered a kitchen but was totally useless for the time I was there. Also, someone opened my wallet while I was sleeping and stole all my cash. The owner then just said he can't do anything because there are no security cams in the room. Additionally, some of the staff were so annoying trying to sell me tours since the momment I arrived the city. I think this hostel got overrated.
