    Such a lovely hostel!! Great location (trails start right across the street & there are busses for hikes further away), cozy atmosphere and good facilities. Staff is very kind and super knowledgeable about activities (skiing, hiking, etc) to do in the area and can recommend plenty of good hiking routes to take. Also loved the cats. Can highly recommended staying here!!!

    Good Bye Lenin is the only place you should stay if you're looking to have a cheap visit to Zakopane! The edge of the Tatras National Park is just a 3 minute walk from the front door, and the atmosphere at GBL is incredible! There is no better place to return after a long day in the mountains than GBL! I highly recommend!

    OH WOW! This place is utterly stunning and beautiful. It looks as if it comes from a fairytale. There is a big focus on feeling 'at home'. The staff were friendly and welcoming, with some humour as a personal touch. The facilities are basic, but traditional, which adds to the charm of the place. You won't find a more beautiful hostel on your travels. The backpacking vibe is great, as the guests are all typically there for the same reason with the same interests. My favourite hostel so far!

    I absolutely loved my stay here. It was with no doubt the best hostel I ever stayed with. I loved how international the guests were, how cozy the hostel was, and how close it was to all the hikes. Special thanks to Felix and Anie for being such great company! - kitty

    Beautiful hostel set right next to the national park. Beautiful views to sit and enjoy a coffee in the morning. I took my mum with me for her first hostel experience and she was impressed. Staff are super friendly and helpful if you need advice for trails and hiking routes. Can walk into the town centre in 30 mins or can take a bus which leave right opposite the hostel.

    One of my favorite hostels ever! There’s a little community at this place and it is so much fun. Everyone hikes and hangs out and it’s a blast. The only reason I didn’t give it a 10 is because security isn’t super tight but it doesn’t even matter, I was never worried about theft or safety (and the women in the hostel weren’t either). The staff is awesome, the location is awesome, and the building is awesome. It’s perfectly removed from the main town, but not too far- a cozy mountain(ish) hostel.

    The hostel that feels like being home. Very cozy and small living room gets people to mingle. Hikers waking up early mostly. Very friendly staff and a couple cats roaming around. You can rent the required winter hiking gear at the desk.

    Great hostel- very cozy feeling with nice warm blankets and comfy living area. Good social vibe of being able to hang out and drink and play board games, nothing crazy, but fun. I was offered pea soup when I arrived late, which was excellent, as well. A little far from the town center, but very close to hiking trails.
