“This place is excellent.”
Reviewed 8 November 2013

This place is all you could ask for in a hostel. The place is very clean and modern. It's in a pretty convenient location (Just across the road from the old city centre), a 20 minute walk from the place will get you easily to the main sights, as well as most of the bars and restaurants.

Staff are helpful and fun, they usually join in for drinks and heading out on the town. Probably the coolest aspect of this place is it really encourages everyone to get together in the common room and hang out. Every night has some kind of group activity, and almost always ends in a bar crawl.

Krakow is a cool city, and undoubtedly a better experience if you're staying at mosquito.

Wow. What can I say? The legends are true. Out of the 30+ hostels I've stayed in, Mosquito is, hands down, the BEST hostel I've stayed in. From the moment I walked in the door, Ania K & the rest of the staff made me feel at home. Day or night, they're always happy to hang out with u. Like actually genuinely happy to. Not because they have to, but because they want to. The hostel is also professionally run, clean, great location + facilities, delicious breakfasts & dinners. See you again soon! :D

This hostel is great is you want to relax to see the city and if want to meet fellow travellers the staff make you feel so welcome and encourage you but don't force you to join in the daily activities.

This is a great hostel with lots going on, close to the centre about 8mins and the station about the same. I think its the staff that really make this place keeping clean and fun to stay.

They have great facilities;

free tea and coffee
free food most nights which you can help make if you want
games
excellent kitchen with everything you need to cook plus tupperware and clingflim
Brillant Breakfast also free
you can hire umbrella's, towels, hair dryers.

Rooms and shared bathrooms are soooo clean (ladies cleaning hourly) and quiet and have huge lockers for big backpack + your day bag.

Overall will come back again, one of the best hostels of our 3 month trip in Europe.

Truly an awesome hostel in a great location - literally across the street from where the main square is. The hostel has a really cool vibe, very home like atmosphere. Staff was great, very accommodating and kind. Cooked a delicious dinner and took us out in Krakow.

We apologize for being loud and obnoxious at 5am! (sorry Paulina)

Love krakow and this hostel, recommend it to everyone!

Room Tip: My buddy and I chose a double and it turned out to be a matrimonial room with one bed meant for coup...

The staff was amazing, always smiling and helpful. The best staff I've met in Poland, and I've traveled around Poland a bit.
The hostel is clean and comfortable. Free wifi and space to leave your luggage in case you have to check out and still need to keep your bags somewhere.
Very near the old town, which is the must see in Krakow.
Only thing that could bother someone is the noise people make sometimes, even after 11pm. The hostel has theses activites for guests and sometimes people get carried away... but it was ok either way, sure would stay again and recommend it.

Room Tip: Any room is good, even the ones with shared bathroom, cause everything is SO clean!

Stayed in the 12 bed dorm and had a great time. Well located so a short trip from the train station and near to the market square and old town. Staff there, went out of their way to make everyone welcome.
Breakfast and dinner are included in the price and breakfast is a selection of deli meats, cereals and bread. Dinner is different every night and you obviously don't have to eat there but it's not bad.
Plenty of people around so meeting people in the dining area/common room is pretty easy and there's trips to bars going on basically every night.
I found the bathrooms pretty clean overall, as are the rooms.
Obviously with the night trips, the place can get slightly noisy so it really does depend on what you're looking for.
