    The place was awesome, clean and the staff was very friendly. The location is wonderful it's not that close to city center but it has that forest house vibe which was so convenient to zakopane.

    My stay at the Goodbye Lenin Hostel was absolutely marvellous. It is by far the best place I’ve ever stayed. The staff are incredible individuals. The hostel itself is a wonderful building, in an stunning location. You’ll never feel as at home and as at ease as you will here ☺️ The in house snowboarding instructor is fantastic ❄️

    This is probably one of the best hostel I’ve ever stayed. Everything is excellent, the location in the mountains, the vibe of the hostel, the easiness to reach the city centre. I fully recommend to anyone planning to go to Zakopane to stay in this hostel and if you are not planning to come here but you are in krakow take the bus or train and come to this hostel. You are not going to regret

    Good Bye Lenin has an atmosphere and feel like no other hostel. Everyone was super friendly and finding groups to hike with each morning was never a problem. At night, people would hang out by the fire outside, making it easy to make new friends and interact with others. The only issue was that there was a Lithuanian witch working there who stole my heart and changed all of my travel plans. 😉

    It's amazing! I recommend this place to everyone! I have been to many hostels, but none like this. The travellers stay together like family. It's a different vibe!

    Pros: - Staff are all volunteers, and are amazing! - Free continental breakfast. - Bus stop for bus #11 to Zakopane is nearby. Public buses are modern and punctual. - 20 min walk for bus #14 for skiing at Harenda. - Snow sports: resident snowboarding instructor gives great advice & offers lessons. - The cats. Cons: - Only three toilets, so some waiting for toilet/shower in peak times. - Bunk beds unsuited for tall people (> 1.9 m), particularly in the 6-bed dorm. - 4 km away from Zakopane.

    The place is gorgeous! From my room i got such a stunning view through my window. You get to walk in a kinda hard path for about 5 minutes to get there and you'd better have a torch. There are 2 friendly cats. Any way, I still strongly recommending the place. If I ever go back to Zakopane I'll stay in there.

    The public transport in Poland is a really joke. To arrive until the hostel u need be a engineer to understand the bus line or have born in Poland. About the hostel, good place with a good atmosphere, but far from center or some ski place. I'd recommend for someone who intend spend sometime just watching the nature.

    I was disappointed, it was untidy.. tripping over walking boots, dirty showers and kitchen. The room was packed and noisy full of party goers all night til early morning from the living area next door. No sleep whatsoever. Wouldn’t recommend at all sorry. The worst hostel I’ve been to in ages. The goat and cats were cool and the fire but just too dirty and loud
