Hostelworld says

Greg & Tom Hostel was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2011 Hoscars and it’s not difficult to see why. This friendly, sociable hostel is very centrally located, less than 10 minutes’ walk from Market Square and St Florian’s Gate, and an easy walk to the rest of Krakow’s main sights. The staff are very highly rated here on Hostelworld and we like that they serve a different free dinner seven nights a week, perfect for meeting other travellers. This hostel also features two fully equipped kitchens, free Internet and Wi-Fi, free walking tours and no bunk beds.

Great spot. Great food for dinner and breakfast. For such a big hostel it would probably be worth it to invest in key cards instead of a set of 4 keys. Another upgrade could be newer beds and bed curtains.

Very comfortable hostel for a couple days. Very close to the main train station, old town, and several trams. It's not a party hostel by any means, but there is a good free breakfast/dinner and common room. Be aware, this place is a walk-up apartment building so be prepared to carry your luggage up several flights of stairs. Otherwise, there are at least three locked doors between your room and outside, so it's safe.

Greg & Tom Hostel says

I think what puts us ahead of the rest is that in everything we do, we put our hearts into it...it makes us perfect as friends and professionals all at once. For instance, we offer two completely free meals every day - breakfast AND dinner! We can even pack your lunch before you head out for the day. We're in a great location, close to the bus and train stations, for guests' convenience. We're also near a shopping mall, a 24hr exchange office, 24hr liquor store and the Old Town. The only local place that I recommend that guests visit is of course Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camps. Guests can actually book tours right at our reception. I'd say our hostel is ideal for young people willing to have fun, meet new people and socialise. Most of our guests tend to be in their 20s and 30s.
