Mosquito Hostel is just 5 minutes walk from Train Station and also 5 minutes walk from Main Square.

The fastest way to get to the center of Krakow is to take a train which leaves every 30 minutes from the train platform at the Airport. Runs from 05:17 till 00:17 everyday and last 18 minutes. Costs 8 PLN. You have to get off the train at Krakow Główny which is the main train station and then follow the directions written below.
The cheapest way to get to the center of Krakow is to take a local bus number 208. Bus will take you next to the Train Station ( Dworzec Główny Wschód) and then follow the directions written below.
One ride cost 4.00 PLN/2.00 PLN (discounted - you need to have an international student ID - ISIC card or Euro26) but it last up to 45 minutes.
There is also a night bus 902 which leaves once per hour between 11 pm and 4 am. The name of the stop you need to get off is Stary Kleparz, 2 minutes on foot from our hostel!

There are two levels of the bus station (MDA). If you are on the first level go downstairs to the level 0. On the level 0 go to the tunnel's entrance and go straight to Galeria Krakowska (then follow directions written above) if Galeria Krakowska is closed turn left to Railway Station and then follow directions written above.

To leave a Train Station go downstairs to the tunnel, then turn right to enter the big mall Galeria Krakowska. Now you are at the level -1 of this mall, use modern escalators to get to the level 0 and look for an exit to Pawia Street. On Pawia street turn left and go straight along the street to the big intersection then turn right on Basztowa street.

*If the shopping mall Galeria Krakowska is closed, follow these directions: Leave the train station and go downstairs to the tunnel then turn left at the stairs which will lead you to the main building of the station. Head towards the building and before you enter take a right turn when you see Galeria Krakowska. When you reach the big square head for the hotel named 'Andels' cross at the pedestrian crossing and find the street named Pawia which is behind the hotel. When you reach Pawia street turn left and head towards the big intersection. Now look on your right side for Basztowa street?

That's right! Go ahead! After 2 minutes of walking you will reach Tram Stop called Stary Kleparz - turn right along "Nakielny" (bakery) and you will see our dark blue MOSQUITO HOSTEL sign. There will be a big gate on your right shoulder. Look for an intercom and dial number 60. Bzzzzzz. When you get in take the first and only door on the left side. Then you have a privilege to take an elevator to the 2nd floor. Blue Mosquito Hostel door will be on your left. Welcome to our hostel & feel the positive buzzz! You made it! :)
