Goodbye Lenin Hostel Zakopane

Looking for a place to escape the city, reconnect with nature and hike your ass off? Look no further! Hidden away in the forest, yet still very accessible, there’s a magical place called Good Bye Lenin. The main hostel is a beautiful cabin build in 1909. It’s cosy living room with free breakfast makes for the perfect place to start the day. And what better way to end an adventure filled day than with a cold beer and some delicious food from our BBQ. Our hostel is in the middle of nature, yet the nearest bus into town (and to the Morski Oko lake), mini market and entry to the national park are just a 5 minute walk away. Hiking, climbing, mountain biking... you name it, lots of adventure sports are possible here. Sometimes, however, it is time to relax. Mao (the hostel cat) needs cuddling and Majka (the hostel goat) is always up for a deep conversation. Reenergize for the next day of endless fun. To get a taste of what your stay at Goodbye Lenin could be like, just have a look at our Facebook page ‘Zakopane Goodbye Lenin Hostel’. Or better yet, join our team!

I am really honored to have this possibility to ask such great people like backpackers to help me. We had many volunteers working with us and until now everybody was really happy. The first 4 years of running the hostel I lived with volunteers in the same room so many of them became my friend and we are still in touch. Lots of them are coming back...Right now there are 2 people helping me, that are already 3th time over the last 3 years and are staying for mounts. I think this is because the love the place :) And about myself... I run the hostel since 5 years, before I was addicted traveler myself, now I turned more into the outdoor sports, I love climbing, ski-mountaineering, horseriding. And since 8 months I am a happy mummy of my little baby boy Andrzej. Dont hesitate to join our GBL family :)

I enjoyed the experience, I connected more with myself with the help of Nature and the incredible atmosphere of the Hostel.

A place to retreat, get in touch with yourself and nature. The most magical, peaceful wooden house surrounded by a pure forest of Polish mountains. The greatest people are attracted to this unique place, and the magnet for that is the owner of the hostel - Marzena. The tasks are very easy and don't take too much time to do. Thus you have a ton of time to explore fantastic routes of the Tatra mountains. Thank you so much for having me. I'll definitely come back!

Goodbye Lenin was my first volunteer experience and I couldn’t have had a better one. The other volunteers were welcoming and made the stay very comfortable. I only had to work 1 full day a week and it was fun and easy. I would recommend it to everyone!

I had the best time at Goodbye Lenin! This was my first worldpackers experience and I was super nervous, but Marzena made me feel so welcomed. I met amazing travelers and the other volunteers have truly become great friends. I would really recommend this experience if you love being in nature and want to hike and explore Zakopane! I couldn't have wished for a better first opportunity :)
