Hostelworld says:

Greg & Tom Hostel was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2011 Hoscars and it's not difficult to see why. This friendly, sociable hostel is very centrally located, less than 10 minutes' walk from Market Square and St Florian's Gate, and an easy walk to the rest of Krakow's main sights. The staff are very highly rated here on Hostelworld and we like that they serve a different free dinner seven nights a week, perfect for meeting other travellers. This hostel also features two fully equipped kitchens, free Internet and Wi-Fi, free walking tours and no bunk beds.

  • Greg & Tom Hostel says

    I think what puts us ahead of the rest is that in everything we do, we put our hearts into it...it makes us perfect as friends and professionals all at once. For instance, we offer two completely free meals every day - breakfast AND dinner! We can even pack your lunch before you head out for the day.
    We're in a great location, close to the bus and train stations, for guests' convenience. We're also near a shopping mall, a 24hr exchange office, 24hr liquor store and the Old Town. The only local place that I recommend that guests visit is of course Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camps. Guests can actually book tours right at our reception.
    I'd say our hostel is ideal for young people willing to have fun, meet new people and socialise. Most of our guests tend to be in their 20s and 30s.

    This hostel is a home away from home, never have I been so impressed by such a loving environment with staff that will feel like a second family in only a matter of days. The amenities are top notch, Free dinner and breakfast are included in the duration of your stay, the common room is comfortable, has a new age feel and guests can feel free to be very sociable, it's only 5 minutes walk from Old Town and right across from the Main Bus Station and Mall makes this the best location in all Krakow.

    I really enjoyed my short stay at this hostel. The staff were friendly and helpful, and booked tours to Auschwitz & The Salt Mines upon request. The location is good, close to both the city centre and train station. This is a good place for everyone who likes small and quiet places with a nice atmosphere
