Last Updated on May 7, 2023 by Natalie

This post is all about staying at Greg and Tom Beer House Hostel in Krakow, Poland.

I’ll be honest, I’ve been backpacking for a long time now, which means my standards for hostels are HIGH.

Typically, my top priorities when booking a hostel are comfort, fun, and cleanliness.

When I was traveling for 5-months around eastern Europe, I heard repeatedly how Greg and Tom Beer House Hostel in Krakow was a backpacker favorite.

So, I decided to check it out myself.

Rooms & Prices

Prices may vary according to season, but I paid about $18 USD a night for a 6-bed mixed dorm.

Additionally, they offer 4-bed, 10-bed, and 12-bed mixed dorms. Unfortunately, they don’t offer female-only dorms.

The price includes complimentary breakfast AND dinner. I definitely took advantage of the free meals, mostly because they were so delicious!

It was by far the best food I’ve ever had at a hostel.

Tour Add Ons

The hostel does offer a variety of tours you can book for your stay.

Some of the tours book up weeks in advance, especially the tour to Auschwitz. Be sure to communicate with the hostel when you want to book your tour.

The Auschwitz tours are around 160 PLN and include transportation, a professional guide, and entrance to the museum.

Zakopane tours include return bus ticket to Zakopane, thermal pools, and Morskie Oko.

The Hostel Pub Crawl costs 60 PLN and includes games, 1hour of unlimited drinks, welcome shots, and free entrance to various clubs.

You will also meet many good friends on the pub crawl, it’s a must-do!

The Vibes

Greg and Tom promote themselves as a party hostel and they even send you an email after booking to make sure you know what you’re signing up for.

I was thankful for their forwardness because I don’t typically book party hostels.

However, I was so surprised at how clean and tame they kept things around the hostel. A lot of the party happens outside of the hostel and I appreciated those boundaries. I had a great balance of party and good sleep!

Also, there is 24-hour reception in case you ever have any issues.

The vibes overall were amazing and I made so many good friends out at the pub crawl or even staying in to eat the hostel dinner. There are so many opportunities for socialization!
