Good Bye Lenin Hostel Krakow Reviews
Great Place to Stay Mar 10, 2011
Very close to Market Square and the main attractions, the Good Bye Lenin – Let’s Rock hostel is a cheap and great option in Krakow, Poland. Have to admit, the name was unusual. And probably a reminder how Poland is like “good riddance” to communism.
Not easy to find, since there is no sign to indicate where the hostel is. Located next to a pharmacy, you may have to be buzzed to get in. But then, you go down a passageway, to a gate on the left side. You have to hit the button, to get buzzed in as well. Just watch out for that first step, which curves over and not easy to find in the dark. The automatic light does not kick on time, as I have stumbled on it a few times.
But don’t let any of that discourage you from staying there, because that is no indication of how the hostel really is. You enter on the 2nd level (or 1st floor), to the front desk, which is also the common room and kitchen, all rolled into one. The staff is helpful and nice. And internet is free, but there are only 2 laptops there.
Some nice amenities include an all-you-can-eat breakfast, which is included. And free internet, although there are only 2 laptops on some weird chair.
Bathrooms are nice for the most part, although I am not a fan of the showers where there are 2 sliding doors to open or close.
The dorm rooms are very nice, with lockers below the bunk beds. Each person gets 2 keys, one for the room and the other for the locker. And they are away from the common room, so noise should not be much of a factor.
A great hostel to stay at, and recommended if spending the night in Krakow. Well worth the price, and the location just cannot be beaten, being only 5 minutes away from the square by foot.
