Seriously the best hostel I've ever stayed in. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful with information on what to see/where to go. I was in a 12-bed dorm and still the room felt so spacious and not overwhelming at all. The free breakfast and dinner is also a massive plus! And every night the hostel hosts an event, which are great fun and easy to make new friends at. Definitely recommend Mosquito!

I've stayed in over 50 hostels and worked in a few too and this for sure is up there with the best of them. I struggle to see how anyone could find serious fault with this place - it's spotlessly clean, the breakfast is decent, the beds comfy, the rooms a good size, there are plenty of showers and toilets and the staff go above and beyond to make sure you get the best out of your stay in Krakow and to get you meeting the other guests if you want to. Highly recommended and would 100% stay again!
Great friendly hostel with helpful staff. We only stayed for a night but it seems like they make an effort to have tons of fun things for hostel visitors to do. We booked a tour through the hostel and it was great. The hostel definitely has more of a party vibe, so it's not a quiet place.
This was the best hostel we have stayed at in Europe! It is so clean, has everything you need, perfect location. The staff are all SO nice and friendly and they have an event on every night. Also the dinners they cook are great!
excellent place. free dinner, and games night, so it was a very nice stay. good place to meet people also
One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in.
Thank you. I had fun, but for those that do not join the daily events, it can feel more lonely because you are obviously outside of a group. I joined the daily event on the second night and felt more included. Casual visitors might feel more isolated from those events. In this way the staff can really affect the atmosphere of the hostel.
I had a great time while at Mosquito and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. All of the previous reviews touched upon basically everything and they are all true. However, not my favorite hostel ever, but definitely one of the best out there. Great nightly activities, great location, very friendly staff, helpful and a nice overall set up and is perfect for solo travelers looking for a good time. One minus: felt like some workers cared more about taking photos than actually socializing
Staff where welcoming, good facilities, close to the main square and transport links, not a full party hostel, but still made an effort if that's what you want, a good welcoming halfway hostel,
The Mosquito Hostel experience was my best yet throughout Europe. The staff takes the time to thoroughly check you in, show you your room, the hostel amenities, and then walks you through a map of the city and makes suggestions for what to see and where to eat. Breakfast and dinner are included every day and there is a nightly social activity. This hostel was so much fun and very social. The location is very central with easy access to the main attractions of Kraków.
Amazing staff who will arrange events every night and bring you out to cool places in Krakow old town afterwards. Best hostel atmosphere I've ever experienced and I'll definitely go back here for my next Krakow trip!
We had a very nice stay. We chose to have an airport pickup which was nice after a long flight. The staff were very helpful and thorough in recommending places to eat/see etc. The double private room was very clean and the bed was quite comfy. There were some loud people at night but the staff were good at quieting them down. It is about a 5 minute walk to the square and a 24 hr grocery store. Would definitely stay again!
I enjoyed every minute of my stay at Mosquito hostel. The staff were all lovely and very helpful. I wish we'd of stayed a few more nights to get to know them and there guests better. We did a tour on one of the days and the guests of Mosquito hostel made us feel welcome and got us involved. I'd definitely stay at the hostel again and recommend it to anyone. The room was perfect and very clean. Overall it was the perfect place to stay for our short trip to Krakow.

Best hostel I've ever stayed in! Amazing location, free breakfast AND dinner, activities every night and the absolutely nicest staff ever. The girls at reception were so lovely and friendly, the second you walk in you feel welcome. Great showers and super clean rooms and bathrooms too. Laundry is free! Do yourself a favour and stay here!
My favorite hostel on my 3.5 months backpacking trip! They have free breakfast and free cultural Polish meals for dinner, as well as all sorts of nightly activities, including a free bar crawl. The dorms are nice, the showers are clean, the staff is really friendly. And there is free laundry. It's a stones throw away from the center. Stay here. Just do it.
Everything about Mosquito Hostel was amazing!
Loved everything about mosquito, I was a oiled guest just arrived from India and I was in just like everyone else, the place is well managed and breakfast AND dinner if you wanted to sign up and stay in....keep on buzzing!
Best hostel I've been to so far! Friendly staff, great central location (a short walk from main station and town centre) and awesome extras! Free breakfast AND dinner (which was great both times) with your stay! They have 3 different WIFI connections so it's guaranteed you will find good service somewhere! If you're interested in Auschwitz or the Salt Mines, they will gladly set you up a tour which leaves every morning from the hostel! I also loved the mix of party and relaxation available!
