I stayed in 6 different hostels whilst i travelled around Poland and would have to admit this has got to be the best. The hostel is located 5 minutes away from the old town. The staff were considered by all as there friends and it's the first hostel that provide food if you were in the building during meal times.
It's my second time at Greg and Tom's hostel and as the last time I really liked it. The included food is very good and the beds are comfy. All staff member I met were very friendly and gave good recommendations. It was a pleasure to stay there for me.
In a few words: Excellent hostel. I stayed four nights and I was able to visit a lot of things, the staff gave me valuable tips about things to visit in Krakow, by the way Krakow is a beautiful city.
A very clean and friendly hostel in an excellent location beside the train station. The staff are very friendly and extremely friendly. The free breakfast and dinner that are provided each day are very tasty and a great way to meet other people in the hostel. I was in the flat upstairs which was a little quieter and very warm. The bathroom was very big and clean, as was the full flat. The hostel provides everything you would need to enjoy Krakow for an excellent price.
Only minus is that there is no aircondicion of fan. Its quite hot in 6 person dorm :D but points is still 100/100
One of the best hostels I've stayed in! Feels like home and they even provide a freehealthy breakfast and dinner every day!! The staff are amazing. Wojtek gave me a nice cold drink as the lift was broken and after 2 flights of stairs, I was hot and bothered. Then when I asked him where I could get a camera battery charger and international adaptor, he pulled out 2 boxes and found me the right ones and even tested them out to make sure they worked!! I highly recommend this hostel.
Great location near the main train and bus station. Large rooms and large showers are nice. Best free breakfast and dinner I've seen so far in a hostel.
Fantastic staff,Sara made our stay so cosy and comfortable, her cooked dinners were gorgeous.vote for best staff in hostels=Sara!great atmosphere with free breakfast+dinner.nightlife or cosy cinema night in all encouraged.lovely chill out room.our room was on 4th floor, only 1 shower for 12 people, a bit over stretched.clean,tidy room with lockers.a FAN would have been a relief with 36 degree heat.reception a bit small for the hustle and bustle,4th floor was a quieter space.good colour keysystem
The staff was very friendly and the mattresses very thick, but it gets unbearably hot in the un-air-conditioned, poorly ventilated rooms. Also, DO NOT shell out for the pub crawl. For 60PLN, they promise you a 'party tram' ride, entrance into a bunch of clubs and shots at each. However, after waiting 2 extra hours before heading out and being on the non-alcoholic tram, they couldn't get HALF of the whole group into the club and only 2 or 3 shots the entire night because of the crowd. RIPOFF
amazing hostel!!! the staff are super super friendly and they cook you dinner every night!!! great hostel to meet people over dinner and wished i had of stayed longer than two nights!!!! definately recommend!!
We really enjoyed our stay here and the staff were excellent!
The hostel is very close to the city centre of Krakow and the staff is the best of the best! They explained me what to do and what to see in Krakow and they gave me very good advices. I really felt like at home in this hostel. There is also a free dinner every day included in the price! Don't think twice and reserve here if you are going to stay in Krakow. You won't find anything better
Amazing stay. The staff are lovely and all very kind. I had a night train so I was in limbo for 10 hours post-checkout and they even invited me to stay for dinner that night! The rooms are awesome and have desks, wifi is great. Amazing crowd all in all.
We really liked staying at the hostel. We thought it was a great value, clean, and had fun meeting people in both our hostel and the other Greg and Tom's. The hosts were nice, helpful and spoke great English. One suggestion would be to have more fruits and vegetables at meals - we noticed how affordable they are when we visited street markets. It would be nice to have more healthy options and variety than just watermelon and tomatoes and iceberg lettuce (watery, and low nutritional value).
Our biggest lesson from staying in this hostel was DON'T judge it from the outside! Every floor has its own kitchen, showers (shared) and our room was big with plenty of space to spread out, all of which was very clean. What you get for your money is amazing with good breakfasts and amazing dinners (included) cooked by the staff. The staff are also a massive reason to stay as they are very friendly and always willing to help (Sarah especially). They really helped with restaurant recommendations.
I lost my underwear and bra which I left in the balcony to dry. The night-shift reception girl is neither helpful nor nice. She called the cleaning lady and told me my lost clothes are on sofa, I went to check but found none. I then asked her if she could come w/ me to double check. She was unhappy and said she had sth to do. I said I could wait--after half an hour, she came w/ me but found none. The only thing she did after was to say:"Sry." Another guest lost her short too,but nothing was done
