    Ginger Hostel Krakow was excellent. The cleanliness and quality of the breakfast was superb and as good as a high class hotel. It was perfect for getting too and from the city centre as well as bus stop for Airport and all the sights. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

    I didn't find there was much of a social vibe but it was absolutely clean and modern, beds sadly are still uncomfortable but that seems to be consistent among hostel stays

    I had read that it had ‘creepy’ guests and was hard to find. Absolutely NOT the case. I arrived to a sparkling clean hostel with the best breakfast, hands down of any hostels I have been in and I have traveled over 50 countries. The dorms were spotless and spacious and aesthetically pleasing. The common room was charming. No big parties at this place if that’s your thing but if you want a tranquil, hospitable place to rest your head, it’s here.

    Once I got into the hostel, it was pretty good. However, it’s very hard to find, as there is only one tiny sign to point you in the right direction. I wish there would have been some info on that sent my way before I got there. Breakfast was awesome and it was even put out early which I appreciated since I had to leave at 6am. However the people that were staying there while I was made it quite a bad experience. Blasting music with a ton of bass until 1am, and coming in drunk at 3am.

    Good clean hostel with good breakfast. Good showers but slightly limited in numbers when the hostel is v. busy. Trips and excursions are overpriced, but the staff actively tell you how to save money (public transport to salt mines or airport etc.). I would stay again!
