Enthusiastic English-speaking staff, friendly atmosphere, 5 rooms, 2 bathrooms, lots of cozy common places to sit or lay (+ book library), breakfast included, access to the kitchen, wi-fi internet, garden with grill, in-house ski/snowboard rental. Best prices in town for travelers on a budget.

During the last few years, I taught skiing over 20 people who lived in this hostel. Everyone said there was a great atmosphere and great service, but they complained about the bathrooms and the old equipment of the rooms.

Zakopane, Krupowki 24 St.

TOP Hostel is located in the very center of Zakopane. It offers 5 private rooms for 2-4 people, 4 spacious, comfortable (but not cheap) apartments (6-10 people) and 2 dormitories for 4 and 6 people, and a large common room with a TV, darts and a PC computer. Free wi-fi internet is available and guests have access to a fully equipped kitchen and a dining room. Additionally, a sweet continental breakfast is available and includes jams, cereal, toasts, tea, coffee and milk..

TOP Hostel is an excellent choice for tourists who value the atmosphere of a hostel and accommodation in the city center. In the high season, there are a lot of people in Krupówki until late at night, and from the morning lorries deliver goods to numerous restaurants. If you value peace - look for another place, if you want to be in the very center of Zakopane - book TOP Hostel.

Villa Skalny Potok / ZAKOPANE

Zakopane, Cyrhla 22c St.

Willa Skalny Potok is located outside the center of Zakopane (7km from Krupówki), in the upper part of the city (almost 1000 m). The villa has 20 beds in double, triple and quadruple bedrooms with balconies and bathrooms. In the corridor, there is a kitchenette equipped with a microwave, kettle, gas stove and fridge. There is also a large kitchen with a dining area, billiards, a children's playroom and a playground in the garden.

I recommend Villa Skalny Potok to tourists with a car because from Cyrhla (a picturesque district of Zakopane) it is quite far everywhere. The minibusses which run here, are often overcrowded in high season. Villa has a rating of 9.6 on!
