Hostels are a great alternative for more expensive hotels. Standards of hostels in Poland are equal to those from Western Europe. What is more, Polish ones are much cheaper, which is obviously and advantage. In a hostel you will find: free Wi-Fi, simple breakfasts, a shared room for guests with a TV and a twenty-four-hour reception.
A hostel is a perfect place for both groups of friends and families because of rooms for several people which are sometimes equipped with bunk beds. What is more, you pay per person, not per room, which is very convenient.
In Poland, hostels can be found everywhere but the largest number of hostels is situated in Kraków. Their equipment, furnishings, price and number of vacancies depend on the location.
In Warsaw in “Pokoje Gościnne Jankowski” hostel you can rent a place starting from 10 zlotys per night. The hostel is well-reviewed by its guests, similarly to “Coco”, also located in Warsaw. It is a perfect place for those who search for peace and quiet.
A big living room and a fully-equipped kitchen are an integral part of Polish hotels as well as rooms for one, two, three and four. Sometimes, you may come across rooms for a bigger number of people, they are perfect for school trips and camps. “Moon” in Wrocław is such example.
There are some hostels which charge for a room, not for a person, for example “Fryderyk” in Kraków. It guarantees that you will not be put in a room with someone else.
“Explorer” in Poznań offers to adjust the number of beds to the number of people in a given group, whereas, "Tor Stegny" from Warsaw provides extra beds in rooms.
Many hostels also have leisure and sports facilities, including courts, fields, gyms and even swimming pools. Some of them offer modern suites at guests disposal. They are not much different from hotel rooms, in fact, they are sometimes better equipped, for example in the “Kos” hostel in Kraków.
