Editor's review

Is the Giraffe head and shoulders above the rest? Well, it's certainly up there with the the best of them. We admit we've got a bit of a soft spot for this part of town, but the Giraffe marries fine location with equally fantastic facilities. It's got a fresh modern feel and the staff are bursting with enthusiasm for the city. Look out for parties in the adjoining bar, which is destined for some legendary exploits with the coming of the season. For a taste of weird and wonderful world of the Giraffe, click on the accompanying link.

So terrible! Bed bugs, black mould everywhere, broken sinks/showers, filthy beds and rooms. When we brought bugs to managers attention, she insinuated it was our fault. Avoid this place like the plague. The bar is a joke, it's just a room with a pool table that does not serve drinks. Place is a dump. Sleep in the planty, it'll be cleaner

our first impression was the friendly staff, the neat, modern atmosphere and colorful decorating, and the cute dog. the rooms are clean, the bathrooms are okay, we liked that the shower stalls were private and spacious. and of course, there was the pub... the bartender plays awesome music and there was this really, really drunk aussie that we dubbed "the wallaby". he had to be thrown into a cold shower and taken away by the constable for alcohol poisoning. our prof says he was a boring aussie because he didn't take his pants off. there's a decent kitchen and internet connection. all around, it's a great place to stay, but watch out for cracked out guys with raspy voices coming in early in the a.m. asking for steve.

this is the best hostel ever! Free internet, breakfast, laundry. Hostel is brandnew (3 weeks) looks so comfortable and luxurious. And the hostel even includes a bar with cherry vodka! Best option to stay when you are in Cracow.
