This is a terrific place to stay in krakow. It is so central to everything, clean, friendly staff and very easy to make friends there because of all the great entertainment that is provided at night! Loved my stay here!

Have stayed here 5 times in the past few years, usually on weekends away ewith friends. would recommend highly to anyone looking for a friendly environment that promotes contact with other guests. Staff come on the beer with you and are the nicest people ever!

great location and great value!

My partener and I stay in one of Mama's double rooms in August 2011. The room was 1 of 4 in an apartment building. The staff very incredibly helpful, the room was large and modern. The whole apartment was neat and tidy. The only down side was our room was next to the kitchen/dinning/computer area.

Room Tip: If you can, choose any room except for the one next to the kitchen

i was staying there for four nights. i was not expecting to make good friends or socialize much, but i couldn't have done it even if i had tried hard. 95% of the guests are american college students in a gap-year trip across europe. they are extremely noisy, clumsy and messy. if you want to have fraternity-like parties, eat pizza and play guitar all day and night long, this is your place. while you use the computers, they will be talking loudly and sharing impressions of their visits. i heard someone comparing auschwitz to a college campus.
it's true the location couldn't be any better. however, there is plenty of bars in the street (one of them in the very building's second floor) and noisy gets unbearable until past 3am starting from thursday.
the members of staff are completely useless. the water was not running at all in the toilets and when i went to the reception to let them know, the girl on duty came up with this: 'are you sure you don't want to order some pizza?'
if you want to have a quiet place to chill out after a whole day of sightseeing, avoid it by all means.

The place and people were amazing, rooms quiet and extremely close proxcimity to the Old Town square, where most things are based from. Clubs and bars/pubs glalore in the area, with no shortage of organized events going on. Hostel staff were surprizingly nice and helpful, at any point 24/7. Tourist-y information and tours are very easy to come by. Hostel itself was great.... clean bathrooms and kitchen, tidy rooms with windows with decent views. Patio was cute. Rates great! Overall, one of my favourite places in Europe so far!
