“The Best!”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

A recent backpacking tour around Europe was enhanced by our stay in the Mosquito Hostel. The friendliest hostel imaginable with knowledgeable young staff keen to practice their English on you. The hostel was exclusive, in a fantastic spot for exploring the fine City,clean with great amenities. Lots going on at the hostel if you want the opportunity to mix easily with fellow guests. Highly recommended!

Excellent Hostel that makes you fall in love with the city!

Best Parts of it:

1) Location: It is centrally located which helps more than you could imagine.
2) Staff: I've literally seen the staff help people find their way to other hostels when they accidently entered mosquito hostel. The staff is humble, English speaking, helps you with EVERYTHING you need even before you ask at times. They take you around Krakow at night and make your stay worth it.
3) Cleanliness: The hostel is spic and span. There is no dirt anywhere in the hostel & Excellent showers.
4) Common Room: There is a common room where people meet each other and meals are served. This common room and events organized in it are amazing and one of the best I've seen.

This hostel was literally the best accommodation I've ever stayed in. The entire staff (especially Ania) is absolutely fantastic, incredibly helpful and overwhelmingly welcoming. The hostel itself is really well located within Krakow and it was well-decorated and laid out. Every night there was a different event and free breakfast and dinner. I recommend this hostel to everyone who wants to feel like they are in a home away from home.

After travelling around Europe for around a month staying in various different hostels, this was by far the best and I credit this purely to the friendly and enthusiastic staff. Great value for money as well - we received breakfast and dinner which were both delicious at no additional charge. Organised activities in the evenings have us a great introduction to the nightlife in krakow and the hostel also offered a number of different tours during the days. Would definitely recommend.

This place is potentially the best hostel I've ever stayed in. I recently stayed here for 4 nights because of a friends wedding in Krakow. The dorms and the bathrooms are very clean and spacious. You have everything you need in this hostel- free dinners, breakfasts, great maps, chill out areas, activities. The real stand out factor is the staff who are super friendly- everytime I returned from wandering or sightseeing I felt like I was coming back to a home base! I cant recommend it enough.

It is a great place with really good staff. People working at the hostel were really helpful, welcoming and nice. Moreover, the hostel was really clean, the kitchen has all that you need to prepare your lunch or dinner. I will come back if I will go to Krakow again :)

Spent 3 nights there and I can say I just got what I expected: friendly and professional staff, clean spaces, free tours, decent breakfast and a perfect location (5 mins. from main square of Krakow).

I consider myself as a "do it by yourself fanatic", so didn't join the walking tour or pub crawl groups, but it's always nice to know that you can choose!

The reason why I'm giving a 4 out of 5 evaluation concerns the price. Being a so-called "top hostel" means being more expensive than others (not too much anyway), but also more exposed to critics: maybe the 6 bed dorm which I used was a bit too small as well as the kitchen and at least 1 out 2 shared bathrooms.

Also you should update info on your website: no train terminal working from the airport! Ok guys, nothing too serious, I just could have saved a 15 min walk... :)

Just let me put one more good word about the management: It is true that this hostel is probably a better option for young guests aged 18 to 25, but I have to say that the staff really takes care of the silence time after 10pm. so everybody getting back at late night is asked to avoid shouts and noises. Really appreciated that, thanks! :)

Room Tip: In my opinion the 12 bed dorm would have been better than the 6... Light sleepers use earplugs! :)
