1) BALICE AIRPORT. To get to us via public transport, you have to choose a bus 208 or 292. Buy a 60 minutes agglomeration ticket for 5 PLN (you can get one in the ticket machine at the bus stop or inside the bus). Take a ride until the "Plac Inwalidów" stop and change for one of the various buses and trams that go to the "Dworzec Główny" station. Just after you leave at Dworzec Główny - take a look at the other side of the street, you will surely see our banner hanging from the balcony. You just have to cross the street to get to the hostel.

2) RAILWAY AND BUS/COACH STATIONS. Both stations are located just on the side of Galeria Krakowska. To get to us, you have to leave Galeria using its side exit on Pawia street and continue left until the end of the road and then turn right. Simply cross the street and turn right behind the big Warszawski Hotel. Keep going straight and you see our buliding. Super easy - it takes around 3 minutes to get to us from Galeria Krakowska!

3) BY CAR. You need to get to Basztowa street which is the first zone city center. You have to park on the street (just remember - parking is paid from Monday to Friday 10:00 - 20:00, and you have to pay in the ticket machine and put the ticket on your front car window to make it visible). You can also park in the one of the secured, paid parking lots: just drive to Galeria Krakowska and you will see plenty of them. Galeria itself has parking as well, the first hour is for free.

Always remember to follow to the city center, main station, Galeria Krakowska etc. Hostel is located in front of the "Dworzec Główny" ("Main Station") bus and tram stop which is a well known location. In case of troubles - any person you ask should be able to help you.
