Really enjoyable stay. Great location and super helpful staff. Hostel like no other!
I enjoyed the ambience and location of the hostel very much. It's located in a very happening area, right next to old square.
Great hostel to meet people, really recommend the pub crawl. Although it's small, it's really quirky and it's big enough if you're not staying too long, plus the location is perfect. The only complaint would be the beds - they were okay but some panels were missing. Overall I would stay here again!
Great location in the heart of the Old City. It is full of foreigners. The staff often speak English, even to Polish tourists 😁
Really good party hostel with a perfect location. There was no kitchen but the breakfast was pretty okey (same stuff every morning.....). Staff was always busy doing their own things so prepare to wait a while if you want to ask something.
Had a good stay. But please fix the shower head holder! Nice pub crawl and cool small bar in the hostel. Close to everything !
I am too old for this wonderful party hostel. I wish I was in my 20's! The bar was great w/nightly specials (we were too tired to attend after sight-seeing all day). Bart the mgr. was great! He knows Krakow. It was loud but it's right on the old square so easy to jump out and enjoy. Nice staff all around from reception to bartenders. Easy to get to from train and bus station.
Good location right by the main square. Dorms pretty average, lack of windows/light made hostel feel a bit dark and dingy at times, but staff were nice and can help set up day trip. We didn't fancy the pub crawl/ nightly drinking but that's definitely available/encouraged if you're that sort of traveller!
This is my favorite hostel ever! The location and facilities were perfect. As was security. Andre led us on an amazing pub crawl and he got along great with all of us. Margaret was the sweetest host I've met. Ola was wonderfully accommodating. And Bart did his best to make my stay as best as it could be. Thank you all for an amazing stay in Cracow, and I hope to come back again!
Great hostel in a perfect location to explore the city, and that's not to even mention Andre's magnificent pub crawl which includes all the vodka you can drink (despite your protests!) for next to nothing! Great fun hostel and I would definitely stay again :)
Brilliant hostel! Met some great friends and the staff are so welcoming and deal with any issues you have. Bart at the reception is so friendly and always has a smile on his face. Andre the bartender loves a party. a+ hostel!

Staff were very helpful apart from one arrogant piece of work. Rooms weren't locked but the lockers were big and you could fit everything in. Also had to be buzzed into the hostel at 2 doors so security was alright. Decent breakfast included in the price, staff organised day trips to Auschwitz and there was plenty to do in the evening. Pretty chilled out place for a good price, would go back!
I can only truly speak for the staff. The staff is super friendly, honest, they speak good English and they are awesome!
The staff at this hostel is incredibly fair and friendly. I did not get to stay with them but they handled my bookings really professionally. They even managed to cancel the booking with incredibly short notice and I was charged nothing. And they speak good English! A+++
This place is located right near all the night life with is a good/ bad thing, because it's hard not to go out when everything is so close. The best thing about the flamingo is Kasia she was the greatest hostel worker ever. She made sure we had such a great time on our pub crawl and definitely saved our lives one night. Thanks for all the fun Kasia
Although none of the bedding really fitted onto the beds, I loved my stay at this hostel and can see why it has won awards. It is in an excellent location just off the main square, meaning it can get a little loud at night but that's expected. When we were there, we went on the bar crawl with Bart and he is may favourite. He started the evening by bringing shots round to every dorm and had one with us. We then all played drinking games in the common room, great way to get to know everyone.
Awesome place, the staff was great and I must say, super clean showers/toilets. I recommend this place to every backpacker! I've backpacked a lot and seen the most but this place really blow me away!
Really nice rooms, friendly staff but they didn't tell us we were staying in a separate apartment and didn't give very good directions to the apartment.
Average security; buzzed through two doors to get into the property, though rooms aren't locked and my locker was problematic. Krakow doesn't sleep and if you came to party, it has a prime location and fun atmosphere. There's really no way around the street noise that goes on all night long. Staff very friendly and accommodating- kind enough to offer to refund me three nights. Facilities are dated but there's constant effort to keep things clean. Overall value is fair. You get what you pay for.
Great location, excellent facilities and great staff. Hostel has a decent bar and is located right in old town, close to pubs and clubs.
