Our room was excellent, comfortable, clean and modern. Ensuite was nice as well. Only issue was that the radiators didn't work and it was -23 outside. And problem they should really fix. Apart from that I can have no complaints...but being cold is a big one.

Website shows photographs of dorms in a VERY sympathetic light... the one we stayed in was not pictured, a 6 bed in which 2 sets of bunk beds were so close to one another that it was very difficult to climb the ladder to get in the top bunk, and the under bed lockers virtually inaccessible and one double plug...

The place is great, friendly staff and they were very helpful with organizing trips and to give us information on what to see and do in Krakow. Breakfast included which was nice, nothing special but a good way to start the day! Their decorations, paintings and overall atmosphere was great! I really loved it. The beds were OK, what you...

Stayed at this hostel for two nights and loved every part of it. Breakfast was included, free coffee and tea all day, free parking, free laundry services (need to provide your own detergent) staff was friendly, excellent lounge area and superb location! The hostel had such a good vibe, only downside was that wifi wasn't the best.

My partner and I stayed here for 5 nights in June 2016. Upon arrival we were slightly put off by the location/surroundings of the hostel. It is at the end of a dark alley. We would have easily missed it if our taxi hadn't have taken us there, and I would not recommend walking alone/ walking as a two late...

Perfect experience. Wonderful hosts and bartenders. Everyday I saw something new and came back to my new friends at the hostel. Had a delicious cheap dinner from nearby and a few beers downstairs, talked and played games, then went to bed and started over again! Perfect location, walking distance to all major sightseeing in town and if something is further...

Probably one of my favourite hostel stays. GBL hostel is very unique, think we payed the equivalent of 6 euro for a night and this included breakfast. Our room was average, the bedding clean. Appreciated the lockers under each bed. Bathroom was clean. The free breakfast was a really nice surprise, it included cheese, cold meats, toast, chocolate spread, jam,...

A very good hostel. Service at the reception was very accommadating, after realising that we were at the other Good Bye Lenin hostel, which we hadn't booked. Rebooking was no problem, so we could just stay at the place, without having to walk across the city to get the other hostel. We got our deposit back, we had previously made....
