Staff makes an effort to create a community atmosphere. Facilities were OK. Generous breakfast with cream cheese, home-made jam and often whole-wheat bread. Information on the surroundings. Location is rather far from the town center. Many people on a relatively small space (small kitchen and buffet). Perhaps more of a problem when the weather is bad and you can not sit outside.

One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in! Staff are all volunteers who want to be there, so they are very helpful, amazing individuals. The atmosphere of the hostel is warm, welcoming and relaxed. The free breakfast (bread, spreads, cereal, tea and coffee) is an added perk. All spaces are kept clean, and they have good good waste management system put in place. There are only three dorms and one communal space, so it's quite cozy and very easy to get to know people. It doesn't feel like a business at all, and more like a home away from home. There are also two cats and a goat, which are fun to interact with. It's quite far from central Zakopane, so the environment is very quiet and tranquil. If you are here for skiing, one pass (Tatry SuperSki) gives you access to multiple resorts (incl. Male Ciche, Bialka Tatrzanska and Harenda), so you can buy a multi-day pass (more economical), and pick the resort day by day. Kasprowy Wierch is not included, but the pistes were not open during my stay. Private buses service Male Ciche & Bialka Tatrzanska, whereas for Harenda walk 20 min to Zakopane Imperial, and take Bus #14. Public buses are modern, punctual and reliable, whereas private buses are pretty shaky, Google maps gives false information, and you need to check the printed timetables and decipher the hieroglyphics. For Bialka Tatrzanska, it's advisable to go to Zakopane first. If only skiing in Bialka Tatrzanska, it would be better to stay in Zakopane instead. The hostel has some hiking and skiing equipment (e.g. snow goggles) for hire. You're going to want to hire skis/snowboard daily at the resort (which makes very little difference in price).

Sleep Quality
Room Tip: The six-bed dorm is located upstairs. It has a great view, but there are no curtains so light...

I had my reservations about Good Bye Lenin but by the end of my trip, I was extremely pleased with the location, the state of the hostel, but especially with the staff who are very friendly and ready to give you advice on the best hiking trails/attractions. The hostel is situated just a few minutes walking from a National park with a network of trails that will take you all the way to the famous morskie oko (or there is a bus stop outside that will take you the trailhead for 10 PLN). The breakfreast Is free; just cereal, toast, coffee and tea. I recommend this hostel for anyone who doesn't mind meeting people and is interested in a fun laid back place to stay

Goodbye Lenin is situated a 5 minute bus ride from the town centre. The hiking trails are at your door step. They have every facility covered, and with helpful staff ready to accommodate any needs we had. It is small and we did experience it being a little overcrowded at times, sharing the cooking space in the kitchen for example was tricky. We loved Zakopane and our stay here @ Goodbye Lenin, and are already talking about coming back here one day!!!
