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.

    I've been travelling for 2 years and this is the best value hostels I've stayed at. Amazing price for what you get (free breakfast, free dinner, free wifi, free beer tasting etc). It's comfortable, has a great ambiance, friendly staff who ensure your stay is fun and it's close to the train and bus hubs. It's easy to befriend people in the lounge and while not the "party hostel", it's only around the corner and you can sign up to a pub crawl there! (staff there also great). Thanks ever so much!

    Could hear everything and I mean EVERYTHING from the entire floor when I stayed there. Only had one bathroom to share amongst the three four bedroom dorms and the shower water temperature fluctuated. Was a bit dirty. Otherwise, good location - very close to main train/bus station and old town. Had a lamp and socket for each bed, reception was very nice.
