This is a great hostel to visit Krakow. Its just off the main square within easy walking distance of many of the main attractions. At night there was always an activity whether it was beer pong or pub crawl. These were great opportunities to get to know some of the other guests and have a good night out.

Organised pub crawl was quality, every night. Free drinks and people are nice from the hostel. Only downfall is how far the apartment is and how badly it is too find. Shared toilet was a nightmare, the room was noisy and ridiculously hot. The view off the balcony was not desirable either. I have attached a picture. Staff are class...

I stayed a week during World Youth Day at the Dluga Street apartments which are part of the Flamingo Hostel but about a half mile away. The apartment that I stayed in had two beds, a wardrobe, small table and comfortable chair, tv and fan, with the bath shared with another room. While the apartments are located in an older...

I stayed at Flamingo for 2 nights with my partner whilst interrailing around Europe. We struggled to see the hostel at first as the entrance is hidden away in a dark corridor but we felt very welcomed on arrival. We had booked a private double room as part of our package although there was no en suite and we shared...

The bed was terrible, but otherwise it was a fine hostel at a fine price and located perfect in central Kraków. The staff was helpful and nice. It is a party-hostel so if you are young and up for some fun - you should def. go there. Breakfast included and cheap beer.

When we arrived at the hostel we were told that we would be in the other building 5 minutes down the road (we booked a private room). The apartment is still in a really good location, however it is old..and a bit creepy. We had a set of 4 keys which were colour coded and listed on a piece of...

This was an amazing location to stay in. So easy to do anything and the staff were really helpful at pointing us in the right direction of tours. It's for both travels looking to meet new people and have a bit of a party plus couples and friends wanting a clean, friendly place to crash at the end of a...

Flamingo hostel appeared interesting due to the positive reviews. So I booked a single room with private bathroom. The location is great , the entry of the hostel itself more difficult. The flamingo outside is big but I still hustled to see it. I walked into this dark corridor , not sure which door to open and to enter. When...
