My Future Home

A travel blog entry by rpalmer_13

My friend Meagan and I decided that we needed to get out of Prague on the weekend right after the course ended. I'd thought I'd have time to travel a little on the weekends but schoolwork was a time-sucker and I never got out of the city. A bunch of us talked about taking two weeks and doing the backpacking thing down to Istanbul and back since one …

Beauty and Sorrow

A travel blog entry by tilazway


I think we both fell in love with Krakow early on- maybe it was the Peirogies!! There was no free walking tour of Krakow but we easily found our way around the small city center with it's many churches, central market, and castle at the far end. You can walk from one side to the other in about 1 hour and lots of cute little shops, bookstores, …

Leader of the pack

A travel blog entry by brett-millie


When I arrived in Krakow at the Giraffe Hostel I was not expecting to see my old friend Matt Sherwin and I definitely was not expecting to see 30 Rugby players from Leeds on a Stag trip hell bent on destruction!

I went with a trip that the university put together for us international students. There were 80 of us and we all stayed in the same hostel. We toured the royal palace and went to the zoo. Those are the two sight- …

Smoky and "weird guests"

Reviewed Nov 7, 2010

The hostel itself was ok. The people were nice but the whole place smelled like cigarette smoke. It was explained that in a week the anti-smoking law would go into effect so everyone was going overboard with their smoking, but I don't know.

Also, I was staying in one of the dorm rooms and I woke up to find a guy touching my forehead. After I sat up and started talking angrily at him, he left the room, and then I went to reception and explained the situation and all she could say to me was "Sometimes we have weird guests." There was no offer to help find the creek that came into the room so that it wouldn't happen again or so it wouldn't happen to someone else. I feel that other hostels would have done more in that situation.
