Friends and frustrations (but not in relation)

... priorities when traveling. As it stands, however, this is the best hostel experience I've had. Everyone was extremely relatable and just a lot of fun to be around. Once again, I was disappointed to part ways. I had my night train to Lviv, Ukraine to catch, so I said my goodbyes to the room of new friends. I figured I'd grab some snacks for the train ride, but as I stood in the ridiculously long line with a few items at the remainder of my zloty, I noted the time - ten minutes ...

I arrived in Krakow in the afternoon after a long 8 hour train ride. The train was nice, but you could really tell as soon as you crossed the boarder of Poland, as the tracks got worse and everything was very run down, especially the train station in Katowice that i had to change at, the signs were hanging off the walls, everything was broken, including a crumpled up ecelator that looked like it had not been used in ...

Settling into our Krakow home!

Did lots of catching up with our washing this morning and then took a walk around town. We're so close it’s an easy walk! Lots of quaint buildings, pedestrian walkways and interesting little stores. The language is interesting – many long words with lots of use of j, z, w and often ending with a or o. Saw a street name today with 'z’ three times in the same word! We find them mostly unpronounceable. Asked Magda (sister of our host) last night how to say ‘hello’ ...

... hostel too. I walked back to my hostel and took a nap before these Italian sisters woke me up. We talked for about three hours about the same old stuff. I went to take out my contacts and noticed that I had forgot my contact solution at one of my last stops. I tried using water and this ended up hurting me bad in the long run. I went to bed afterwards.

    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.
