Good quiet location - just 10 minutes to bus/train station and to the town centre.

Nice rooms with good en suite. Our room had a kitchette – some do, some do not.

Communal kitchen always available for snacks, tea and coffeel. Reasonable breakfast left out to help one's self to, from 7 am which is good if wanting to make the most of the day.

Recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms very variable - ask to see another if you don't like the first one

The house is just like all the other houses in Zakopane. It's a style that is known to the region. You'll be surprised at how many big bedrooms are located in this house. It's very clean, friendly staff, decent breakfast, and is just a pleasant experience. It's about a 15 min walk to the main road. But when the weather is nice it's a good walk.

2nd time there and just as good as last year. Staff really helpful, clean, warm, breakfast included, kitchen facility if E15 for a massive meal with beers and starter seems too much from the local pubs! Quite unbeleivable value, even for Poland!

I spent 3 days in Zakopane that is very cheap but overcrowded ski resort. I wouldn't come here again for skiing but speaking of this hostel I had pleasant stay here. It was cosy and warm and stuff was very pleasant.

Nice looking from the outside. In need of repairs. Unfriendly or helpful staff. Small kitchen with only a hot plate. Only toast for breakfast.
