Not Warsaw or Krakow - this is the wonderful laid back mountain region of Zakopane. The hostel was built in 1905 w wonderful pine paneling and wood details. The only reason I gave staff "good" was that they couldn't communicate in English perfectly - no maps in English and sometimes they gave vague directions which could be simple if they supplied English brochures. Not complaining - they were all very nice. The computer w/internet wasn't working but they gave us access to the reception computer


Outstanding value. Really helpful staff. Cool building. Not the most comfortable bed but you can't complain at this price.


To turn on the heater


They need to pay attention to the quality of beds

Lovely place, nice rooms, nice atmosphere, there was even a family hosted there. Nice breakfast, nice staff, etc. I would definitely stay there again.


Cosy hostel. Shower was a dribble only and beds could be better but I would stay again.
