I returned to my deep backpacking roots recently with a visit to Kraków in Poland. I covered Kraków on here before back in 2015. At the time I visited Kazimierz district, toured the Old Town, Wawel Castle and Schindler’s Factory. I also visited the notorious German Death Camps at Auschwitz and Birkenau.

My latest trip to the city would see me attempt to visit some more of Poland’s UNESCO world heritage sites including Bochnia. I based myself at the popular Pink Panther’s Hostel. Here are five super reasons to stay here – a perfect spot for a young backpacker!

1 Party Atmosphere
This is a true party hostel which reminded me of my hardcore backpacking days. On my first night here there was a Superheroes Party. There was also karaoke and a drinking session in the kitchen and lounge.

2.Textbook Compact Dorms
Housed on the third floor of a typical Polish terraced building, the hostel has lots of beds all squeezed into compact dorms.

3.Old Town location
The location of Pink Panther’s Hostel in the heart of Kraków’s UNESCO listed Old Town is a real bonus. In fact, this was the first time I had slept in Kraków Old Town as my previous nights here were spent outside it.
