      Smoky and "weird guests"

      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.

      Polish food, Old Town, and one huge castle

      A travel blog entry by mikepsilve on May 19, 2013

      ... People were riding bikes on a river, and buildings were brand new. Then we approached the old town which was awesome with older architecture. It was a neat combination. I love that about European cities. We slept on their hotel room for an hour, all five of us in one queen bed. We then met up with our friends Waldemar, his wife and his daughter Monika. We then dropped our stuff off at our hostel. ...

      ... pizza. As it is now early evening it seems particularly popular with the local younglings as well as offering another gastro treasure for the traveling backpackers. For around a Euro you cant really go wrong!! We are still seeing off lunch so we avoid the temptation and wait it out for a meal later. We arrive back at the castle and decide to take in a lap. Another very neat part of the city, the Castle is well placed and elevated amongst the southern central part of the city. ...

      ... No matter what the weather, this was all they had. The toilet block was similar. Two long rows of round openings with a trough underneath. No drainage, no flushing and when most people in the camp had digestive problems because of the conditions they were living in, you can imagine how uncomfortable it would have been. Apparently tho, one of the favoured job details all the prisoners hoped to get assigned to was to be responsible for emptying ...

The girls had organised a tour to do which left at eleven thirty from their hostel. The camp was an hour and a half out of Krakow. We arrived at Auschwitz one, which was the fist camp that was set up and was chosen because there was already the infrastructure in ...
