  • The hostel is in a great location, i have a really great time on it even having a bit of trouble to find it... the entrance is a bit hidden when u arrive on it for the first time. But the hostel is really cool and the staffs are great, always helpful and smiling! Specially Tomek!

  • I have stayed in quite a lot of hostels in Europe. Some of them are great for parties, some are supremely clean and tidy and some are not so great. This hostel is awesome!!!!! Why, you ask? well: 1. The staff is super awesome and works round the clock, literally! 2. No time restrictions with check-in check-out 3. The staff loves the guests, the city and the cat :p 4. Very friendly and homely environment 5. Super chilled out bar, bar tender and lounge

  • The standard isn't high. The advantage is good location near of the Old City and the bus and railway station. Also the staff is friendly and helpful.

  • I had a great time at Goodbye Lenin - the staff were friendly and tolerant and made every effort to make sure I was comfortable. This involved going above the call of duty, helping me find glue for my broken shoe and directing me to authentic Polish foods.I didn't like the fact the hostel was down a dark alley - maybe they need some lights there, but once inside it was lovely decorated and the rooms were nice as was the bar which had a good vibe even when empty!

  • The girl at the reception didn't tell us at what time the breakfast was, and we missed it. I bet the bedsheets were not changed, because there were other peoples hair on the pillowcase. The room was very humid and there was mold next to the windows. the heater in the room didn't work, they said it's working in the night, but it didn't. (It was november). The dog at the bar was very cute but barked a lot. The showers on the upper level were completley covered in mold, it smelled very unhealthy.

  • Clean your bathrooms so that your guests don't have to swallow mold with every breath they take.

  • Coolest hostel I've ever stayed in. Awesome atmosphere, a bar, great people, cool decor. In a bit of a dodgy area, but it's only a few minutes walk from the old town. Staff are really friendly and helpful too. If you're visiting Krakow, which you should, stay here.
