Great hostel, only minor issue was they could do with a few more bathrooms as in the mornings there was always a bit of a queue despite the hostel not being full. Would definitely stay here again though.

I loved the cozy atmosphere. The location is great, too. About 10-15 mins from the main bus station in Zakopane. The only downside is that there are only 3 bathrooms shared by 3 dorm rooms with 10-12 travelers each.

It's like 10-15 mins walk from the city center (where the Main Street is) and is in an ok location. No wifi in the room so you need to go to the reception for internet. Some Receptionists were nice and some weren't. Rooms are really nice for the price but my bed made unbelievably loud squeaking sounds whenever I tried to move on it and was a bit awkward.

I stayed here for one night only. It was very quiet, clean and a nice place to stay. Very close to the bus station.

Stara Polana is a cozy hostel that is centrally located - a 15-minute walk to the bus station and a 10-minute walk to the city center. The staff is very friendly. The facilities are a little dated but well-maintained. I had no problem with wi-fi and the free breakfast was better than most. I would stay here again! Thanks!

A really lovely hostel. Perfect for hiking in the Tatras Mountains. Close to the centre of town and the buses to the treking starts.

Great for a short stay in the mountains. Clean with plenty of bathrooms and a big kitchen. Breakfast included which was a bonus. Everything wood so beds are very squeaky in the night!

Great location for hiking in Zakopane, close to the town center and easy access to the Tatra Mountains (Kasprovy Wierch, Morskie Oko, etc). Helpful staff who are very knowledgeable about the area. Spacious rooms with large individual lockers. Breakfast included and lots of equipment for cooking in the kitchen. Only issues are lack of toilets/showers (only 2 of each for all non ensuite rooms so there is a long wait) and that room doors don't lock (the only secure place available are lockers)
