Krakow Hostel Pink Panther welcomes you to the city with the highest density of bars in the world. Simply hundreds of bars can be found in cellars and courtyards stretching from the Old Town to Kazimierz and beyond. As dusk descends the city becomes a haven for hedonists. As you will no doubt learn for yourself, it is all too easy to descend the stairs into one of the Gothic cellar bars, and emerge at daybreak missing both your memory and friends. No wonder you will need guides in this jungle of bars and clubs – let the Pink Panther’s Party Crew help you out….

Every night we go for Royal Pub Crawl. The Crawl hits 3-4 of Krakow's best bars and clubs, depending on what's hot that night. We always end up at a club open until dawn. One hour of unlimited beer and vodka shots, free entrance to each club, free welcome shots at each club, unforgettable night out in good company. Skip the tourist trap and party where the locals go!

Every Friday don’t miss the tram because ‘There is no such party like a Royal Tram Party!' It’s the best way to discover Krakow by night with a DJ, upgraded sound and lighting system on the tram. Two hours of unforgettable tram party experience, free alcohol included and plus after party in one of Krakow's best clubs!!!

All rooms of the hostel are newly renovated. There are dormitories and private rooms available, not to mention a communal kitchen and living area with four plasma screen to cater for sports fans. Sleeping arrangements are in 4, 6,8,10 bed dormitories and twin room with modern, super clean shared bathrooms.

Pink Panther's Krakow hostel is a perfect choice for social travellers eager to meet and make friends with others during their stay. Hostel trendy homely design together with evening events run by Pink Panther’s famous Staff encourage bonding between people.

I thought the hostel was great! Lots of fun stuff organised each night if you want to join in. The rooms were nicely decorated but I think lacked attention to detail? Some.of the sheets looked a little tired. Would recommend for their helpful staff and very good location

Great hostel! Building looks dodgy, but hostel is secure, clean, really close to the main square and very fun (vodka tasting night was awesome)! I accidentally left my prescription sunglasses at the hostel, only realizing a few days later. I contacted the hostel and they forwarded the sunnies on to Britain for me! I can't thank them enough for that! Awesome staff. I highly recommend this hostel.
