“Best hostel in Krakow”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

One of the most enjoyable aspects of my time in Krakow was the hostel. The staff were welcoming as soon as we arrived and always friendly throughout our three night stay. The bedrooms and living quarters were always kept in a good condition with plenty of shower and toilet facilities available. We stayed in a mixed dorm with numerous bunk beds which proved to have a great atmosphere.

The hostel's bar was best feature of the establishment with cheap drinks and a pub crawl starting from the bar each night. The pub crawl cost 40PLN (£8) and provided free drinks for two hours and free entry into a range of Krakow's nightclubs! Greg and Tom's also provided a free breakfast and dinner and a restaurant quality menu throughout the daytime.

This hostel was superb value of money and I highly recommend it.

Stayed here one year ago. They only opened up a few years ago and this is clearly noticeable in a good way! Everything's clean and beautifully decorated. Free dinner and a cool pub! Also very close to the city centre, would definitely stay here again!

Loved it. Staff were brilliant! Me and my three mates had the best five days ever. All the guests were fantastic too. It's also a great location for anything you want to do in the city. Would definitely stay here again!

First with the bad... I found the staff to be a little snobby and very clueless. They advertise free dinner but it's limited to the first 30 people who sign up- list fills up fast. Now with the good... The location is outstanding! Easy to walk to everything you would want to see in krakow and the street itself is lively. The hostel is very clean and the beds were comfy enough. Pub crawls were very fun but I'm not sure if they ever change up the bars. My favorite part was the fellow hostel guests, in my opinion the hostel draws in a good crowd.

i recently stayed here with 10 friends, the hostel is in a great location and has very good facilities and a bar/restaurant on site.

the only reason i didn't give 5 stars was because some of the staff were rude and disinterested.
not only to me but pretty much everybody in the group. its a shame really because some of the staff were lovely and a good laugh!

that being said, i would stay again and definitely recommend it to anybody travelling to krakow, worth every penny

we arrived at Greg and Tom's hostel on the 19th of July as a party of 3. Got there at 11:30 so really quite early after dropping off our campervan at the airport parking and they managed to sort us out our beds straight away and provided us with somewhere to drop our bags so we could go off and explore.

You must try one of the beautiful freshly made pizzas in the restaurant below they are the best!! Easily as good as the italians we have tried.

The hostel is superbly located just 2 minutes walk from the main square and has really good facilities. The rooms were clean, beds were comfy and staff were amazing. A special shout out to Asia, Magda and Ada. These guys were so great and helped us out so much over the week we stayed there. They even helped us to organise our mini flash mob to raise money for charity before we left. (www.JimandNathansBigAdventure.com - check it out!)
