It was an outstanding hosrel in every way.
Best hostel I stayed in. Staff were amazingly helpful, bathrooms were immaculate and kitchen AND dinner were provided for free every day. Bedding, wifi and computer access were free, beds were comfortable. The proximity to the square and train station are spot on. The hostel arranged my airport transfer and visits to the salt mines and auschwtz. This place made my first solo travelling experience very easy. I can't fault this hostel. Would completely recommend!
Super hostel, great atmosphere and the staff are awesome. If I'm ever in Krakow again Mosquito it will be! thanks guys :)
Excellent location. The outside of the hostel looks like a gate into a stable. It doesn't look like much and the sign above the gate could be easily missed if u arrive at night and exhausted. However, once you get up to the second floor (there is a lift), the place is excellent. 24hour very friendly staff. The decor is ultra modern and the rooms are a good size. The hostel itself is quite small which makes for a great atmosphere. Excellent for people travelling alone or in small groups.

Absolutely loved this hostel. The staff were amazing and it was a small place so very easy to meet people with the nightly events and social atmosphere. Very short walk to the old town and easy to book tours from the hostel.
Location was great and the check in process was very thorough, we received various helpful hints and tips.. Hostel ran events each night which was great for travellers looking to meet people, but if you are not involved in the activities the hostel can get quite noisy for those looking to get some shut eye. The receptionist on check in was outstanding! However we did encounter one rude staff member who wasn't just having one moody day but seemed quite moody our entire stay..
Staff was very helpful with recommendations on where to go, eat and helping us book our train tickets. The food they provided for breakfast and supper was great too. The beds were comfortable and the showers had good pressure and were hot. The hostel is small so if the staff and place weren't as organized as they were it wouldn't have worked but since they are our experience was fantastic. 5 stars!
I had the best holiday ever staying in Mosquito. Lovely staff, great facilities and the perfect hostel for travelling solo as there's nightly games and group activities. I'll definitely be returning, probably next summer! Best hostel I've ever stayed in. :)

This is a great hostel. Clean, good location, and really fun. The free laundry is nice, you just have to hang up your clothes to dry since there's no rack. The staff doesn't live here, so they aren't as excited to engage with you as some other places, but they're very kind and helpful when asking questions.
Very hard to fault this hostel. It was perfect. Great quality showers, nightly activities, dinners and breakfasts included, great location, and best of all the staff were phenomenal! Would recommend strongly to anyone, it was such a nice place! Will definitely be returning and hopefully soon
Mosquito Hostel is brilliant! The staff are super friendly and make you feel welcome right from the start. Great dorms - lower bunk beds have huge amounts of headroom, and the lockers are massive and will fit everything you have with you. The included breakfast and dinner is awesome! Great nightly activities and the staff then take you out to the local bars and clubs. A big thank you to the staff who make Mosquito such a great place to stay.
One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in! Good location just across from old town. A great size which allows for a social atmosphere but not overwhelming. Very clean and good facilities. What really sets the hostel apart is the staff who are incredibly friendly, helpful, talkative and outgoing. They really care about their work and do their utmost to Make your stay enjoyable. Can't recommend this place highly enough!
Best hostel experience ever. Everyone is so friendly. Free breakfast, dinner and laundry.
I had a great time staying at this hostel. The girls are lovely, helpful and very engaging. Free pub crawls every night and free dinner every night. Definitely the place to stay if visiting Krakow. Thanks :) (sorry for being a menace) Hey Monica!

I love the staff amazing girls friendly bubbly helpful. The facilities are great you cater for everything. It would be the best hostel I have stayed at so far and I've been travelling for 12 weeks. Games night are so great something different every night. There are board games and chill out area of your not feeling up for much. Breakfast and dinner included so great.
I loved my stay at Mosquito hostel. Firstly the staff are really knowledgeable, helpful and give you good advice on things to do and see in krakow so that you don't miss anything. The facilities are all really good, clean and comfortable, and the free breakfasts and dinners are good value for money. It's not the most relaxed atmosphere, sometimes feels a bit more like a hotel, but I still met lots of interesting people. Mixed up the crowd of a hostel which I liked as it's suitable for all ages.
Loved it. Everything a hostel should have on offer. Best hostel I have ever stayed at.
Best hostel I've stayed at so far. 5 min walk from train. 5 min walk to center of town. Everything is clean and organized. Rooms are spacious and lockers are big. Great free breakfast AND dinner in kitchen/common room. Bathrooms are pristine. Different activities and pub crawls every night so u get a chance to meet other travelers and have fun together. Most importantly all the girls that work there are very helpful and sweet. All around best place to stay in Kraków. I'll definitely come back.
Excellent hostel. I stayed in the 10-mixed bedroom. Normally, I don't like to stay in big rooms like this but it was good. The beds were fine, the sheets were fine. This hostel is great because of the staff especially. They are friendly and informative. The atmosphere in the common areas is excellent and the place is very clean. I didn't participate much in the activities given by the hostel but they always had something going on.
