Aga (the host) was extremely helpful and very friendly. She helped plan my stay so I had the best use of the very limited time I had in Krakow. I was very appreciative of that.

My stay at the Elephant on the Moon Hostel in May made my first visit to Krakow a trip to remember. The staff, especially Aga, were sweet and super helpful.

Staying here was one of the highlights of my trip. It was the only hostel I stayed at because I didn't want the crowd that you usually get in them, but all the reviews on TA had convinced me to book and I'm so glad I did. The staff were wonderful. I sat down and watched movies and chatted with...
