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.

Very Good

Saw all the reviews and had super high hopes for this hostel. We were slightly disappointed all in all. By no means is this a bad hostel. But definitely doesn’t meet the supposed reviews and hype. Firstly the good stuff; free breakfast and dinner is amazing, quality array of food which is all delicious. That is the key point of the hostel. The staff were all really friendly, the place is secure with door code to main entrance and key entry to rooms. There’s large lockers, under bed draws and small electri

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.
