I stayed here when I went to Kraków with one group of friends, had such a good time here I went back with another group later that year. The staff were awesome, really helpful and friendly and had a great time partying with them and people we met there. The place was really comfortable and a great location. Cracking place!

Pros - An awesome hostel in the middle of town. Staff were super friendly. My now wife and I only stayed one night but even then found the place very comfortable. Cons - Hardly a con, but wouldnt choose this for a family hostel if traveling with small kids.

We have stayed at Mama's hostel a few times now. Great location! Always friendly staff, good prices, and clean rooms. Easily one of the best hostels in town. Would recommend it to backpackers, or tourists on a budget

This hostel has parties and music almost every day, so its a great place to meet people. The people that work there are very friendly. The location is perfect, its in the centre, close to many bars and restaurants. But I must say that if you want a peaceful place where you can sleep well, this is not the right...

I spent there one night and this is my experience: 1. perfect location: if you have not much time for Crakow it is very important to be in the centre of Old Town - walking distance to the Castle, to the train line, to Kazimierz, to Wisla. 2. we experienced some formal problems - one service person from day before...

This is a terrific place to stay in krakow. It is so central to everything, clean, friendly staff and very easy to make friends there because of all the great entertainment that is provided at night! Loved my stay here!

My partener and I stay in one of Mama's double rooms in August 2011. The room was 1 of 4 in an apartment building. The staff very incredibly helpful, the room was large and modern. The whole apartment was neat and tidy. The only down side was our room was next to the kitchen/dinning/computer area.

i was staying there for four nights. i was not expecting to make good friends or socialize much, but i couldn't have done it even if i had tried hard. 95% of the guests are american college students in a gap-year trip across europe. they are extremely noisy, clumsy and messy. if you want to have fraternity-like parties, eat pizza...
