The 10 Best Hostels in Wroclaw

Overall Best Hostel in Wroclaw – Babel Hostel

Babel Hostel best hostels in Wroclaw

Excellent location, fun atmosphere, low prices all come together to make Babel Hostel the best hostel in Wroclaw!

– $$
– Cafe
– Common Room
– Towels Included

When it comes to location, being 20 seconds away from the Central Station in any city is pretty dang sweet. So that’s partly why Babel Hostel is the overall best hostel in Wroclaw 2019. Another reason is that the staff are helpful. And then we could add to that the fact that the main sights of Wroclaw are an easy walk away. This is also a top hostel because the team here are genuinely kind and helpful. Inside, it’s pretty cute. It won’t win any design awards, maybe, but this overall best hostel in Wroclaw is set in a historic house, it’s clean, and moreover: it’s warm and welcoming. Makes all the diff.

Best Hostel for Solo Travellers in Wroclaw – Grampa’s Hostel

Grampa's Hostel best hostels in Wroclaw

The name aside, Grampa’s Hostel is a fun, social place, making it the best hostel for solo travelers in Wroclaw.

– $
– No Curfew
– 24-Hour Reception
– Common Room

Bright, colourful and functional, the weirdly named Grampa’s Hostel (seriously, why?) is a great place if you’re travelling alone. There’s a huge living room here which is great for meeting other travellers and socialising – presumably that’s the reason (we hope) that you’re by yourself. Other than that, the beds are comfy, they offer all backpacker essentials (towel, earplugs, etc.) and they also take you out on pub crawls, which as we all know are great opportunities to make friends and then forget all about it. But seriously, this Wroclaw backpackers hostel is a great shout for all you  solo backpackers. AND it’s cheap.

Best Cheap Hostel in Wroclaw #1 – Hostel Wratislava

Hostel Wratislava best hostels in Wroclaw

Set in a fine old building with all of the amenities of a good hostel, Hostel Wratislava is the best cheap hostel in Wroclaw.

– $
– No Curfew
– Free Tea & Coffee
– Common Room

Modern and cosy, if a little basic, this is probably the best bet for a budget hostel in Wroclaw. Yep, Hostel Wratislava is set over multiple floors of a restored 19th-century townhouse which is definitely cool if you like that sort of thing. What’s also pretty cool is the location: just a 10 min walk from this Wroclaw backpackers hostel to Central Station and Market Square, two pretty obvious hotspots in town. Other than that, free travel services, a cheap (not free) breakfast on offer, cheerful staff, ensuite bathrooms and other delights make this place a right bargain.

Best Cheap Hostel in Wroclaw #2 – The One

The One best hostels in Wroclaw

Not quite as cheap as the hostel at #1, but The One is still worthy of my best cheap hostels in Wroclaw list…

– $
– Heritage Building
– Location Location Location
– Common Room

Enigmatically named The One is a recommended hostel in Wroclaw mainly due to its location. You literally (actually literally) walk out of the door and – boom! You’re in the famous Market Square of Wroclaw. Now, for location, this is easily the best hostel in Wroclaw. If being within a couple of steps from historic sights is your deal, anyway. The inside of The One is pretty cool, too: wood-panelled rooms and a pretty lavish-feeling dining room, all wrapped up in a townhouse dating back to the 14th century. Unfortunately, it’s not exactly renovated, which is where The One falls down (not literally), though for location and ‘character’ – top marks.

Best Hostel for Couples in Wroclaw – Mlecznaria Hostel

Mlecznaria Hostel best hostels in Wroclaw

If you’re a sucker for charm, you will certainly find it here at Mlecznaria Hostel: the best hostel for couples in Wroclaw.

– $$
– 24-Hour Reception
– Cafe & Bar
– Common Room

Beautiful. That’s what the best hostel for couples in Wroclaw is: b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l. The rooms at Mlecznaria Hostel feel like they’re something out of a period drama, all the wooden furniture and floors and simple, traditional opulence really makes it feel like a special place to stay. And that’s what you want as a couple, right? Somewhere to remember? Hark back to when you’re however old? Scary… But really this top hostel in Wroclaw is great. Think old-fashioned and also think charming and you’ll be close to picturing Mlecznaria Hostel.

Best Party Hostel in Wroclaw – Absynt Hostel

Absynt Hostel best hostels in Wroclaw

The picture might not show it, but this hostel can get pumping on any given night. Absynt Hostel is the best party hostel in Wroclaw. Bring your A game.

– $$
– Common Room
– Air Conditioning
– 24-Hour Reception

If you’re a hassle-free traveller, this is the perfect place to stay: basic rooms, but bright and nicely decorated, decent facilities, but a little noisy and located near to a lot of nightlife spots (fine for some), the ominously named Absynt Hostel isn’t the in-house party hostel you’d expect it to be from the name. But the location sort of does make it the best party hostel in Wroclaw, and it is quite busy, though mainly with locals, so there is some sort of lively atmosphere at least. Clean and a PRIME location for experiencing and enjoying Wroclaw nightlife, if you can stand the noise then you’ll love staying at this youth hostel in Wroclaw.

Best Hostel for Digital Nomads in Wroclaw – Bemma

Bemma best hostels in Wroclaw.

Need to get some work done while you travel? No problem. Bemma is the best hostel for digital nomads in Wroclaw.

– $
– 24-Hour Security

Dunno what Bemma means but we do know that Bemma is stylish AF. Parquet floors, bright yet cosy spaces, plastered walls, like a perfect mix of traditional and Insta-friendly minimalist chic. It’s the best hostel for digital nomads in Wroclaw, being as clean and cool as it is. There’s WiFi in the common areas and all the rooms, meaning you can chill in bed and do your admin without having to haul yourself to a table just to answer an email. Oh and on top of that, it’s fairtrade, eco-friendly and caters for vegans and vegetarians – win-win if you’re all those.

Best Hostel with a Private Room in Wroclaw – Moon Hostel

Moon Hostel best hostels in Wroclaw

Looking for some personal space and a hostel vibe? Moon Hostel is the best hostel with a private room in Wroclaw.

– $$
– 24-Hour Reception
– Free Tea & Coffee
– Common Room

Moon Hostel, what the-? No, we don’t know why it’s called ‘Moon’ Hostel. What we do know is that this is a strong choice for the best hostel with a private room in Wroclaw. It’s modern, it’s ‘like a hotel’, it’s slick, clean, great location, and the private rooms at this recommended hostel in Wroclaw each come with a TV – if that’s interesting for you. Elsewhere there’s free tea and coffee which is great for budgeteers, plus there’s a common room where you can meet fellow travellers. But if you’re looking for a comfy place to lay your head in a private room, Moon Hostel (why is it called that?) is your best bet.

Green Hostel Wroclaw

Green Hostel Wroclaw best hostels in Wroclaw

Classy and modern, Green Hostel is another fine choice for a hostel in Wroclaw.

– $$
– 24-Hour Security
– Self Catering Facilities
– Cafe

Cute: that’s how we’d describe this youth hostel in Wroclaw. It’s set in a historic 19th-century building and it’s got a traditional dining room with Polish-style decor. The rooms are simple here, but – like we said – cute… and clean. And cheap. You’re also pretty near a tram stop here and it’s not far at all for walking expeditions into the historic centre of Wroclaw. In fact, it’s on the doorstep. So yeah, with its cute, chintzy feel you’ll feel at home – in a, uh, homely way. Oh, it also offers a (cheap not free) buffet breakfast. And the team that works here are majorly helpful, so that’s a plus.

Friends Hostel

Friends Hostel best hostels in Wroclaw

Although a bit pricey, Friends Hostel’s location gets you right into the heart of the action in Wroclaw.

– $$$
– 24-Hour Security
– Common Room
– Cafe

Yikes! Dorm beds at Friends Hostel are pricey! But this Wroclaw backpackers hostel looks the part, the dorms have wooden bunks with drawers, and all throughout the place, there are murals daubed on the walls and stuff like that. Generally, the decor is pretty cool. We like that. There are a load of pubs and restaurants and all sorts very nearby since the Market Square and other Wroclaw attractions are also a stone’s throw from the hostel. But though it’s called Friends Hostel, the atmosphere isn’t all that. However, it’s clean and has good facilities. Just a bit expensive.
