6 of us girls stayed at Mama's hostel over New Year's Eve - we had our own 6 bed dorm with heating, good beds, and plenty of space. We had such a good time here as the hostel threw a new years eve party and we got to meet a lot of people from around the world which is what...

Having stayed at a many hostels now, I can categorically say that Mama's is close to the best I have visited. The reason for its success is the very open plan of the hostel. Large rooms, all close together. It is just like being in a big flat all together, and the atmosphere is top. We met so many people...

Stayed at Mama's in February with 10 other lads. The hostel staff were the friendliest people i have ever met and went out of their way to make sure we had a good time. Hostel is in a fantastic location just a stones throw from the main square. There is a Subway below and also a disco bar which is...

Basically on the main square in the Old Town, so very handy. Nice place. Only bad points were that it was a nightmare to pull luggage up to 3rd floor and it was a bit chilly (altho they were getting radiators replaced at the time)

I've stayed in quite a few hostels over the past couple of years, but Mama's was definitely the best. The rooms were clean, warm with lockers for everybody. The bathrooms are cleaned every hour and you can lock them. The staff are very helpful, friendly and make you feel welcome right from the start. There are planned events every evening....

I've been to Mama's twice over the past few years and loved it each time. For one, the location is perfect. Bracka street is just off the Main Square and right across the street from Nowa Prowincja, one of my favorite Old Town coffee shops. The staff has always been friendly and helpful. Each night there is an organized event,...

Stayed here with friends in a 12 bed dorm. Staff were friendly and had great English. The hostel was very clean, especially the bathrooms. Showers were great. The kitchen was nice and the breakfast in the morning and constant toast was great. Rooms were grand, good size bed, lockers and not cold, very important in winter! Location was the best...

My friends and me went to the Mama´s Hostel for 1 night and it was one of the worst hostel i have ever been. The main problem is the noise; our room was just next to the hall where the people was partying with really loud music, and we had to tell them to turn down the volume 3 times....
