The hostel's owners are Gosia & Piotr - hardcore backpackers and travellers, who went all over the world and found out what is the essence of hostelling. Piotr is also a bike addict so if you are cycling round Europe you will find at Helvetia a kindred spirit.
Every single picture at the hostel is one of the images of the owners' trips.

Couple of tips:
The best way to buy a ticket is to find a ticket machine. You can also buy it at newsagents', usually situated near to the bus stops.
Ask for a single fare ticket (bilet jednorazowy), which entitles to a journey on one vehicle. Don't forget to validate it on a bus.
Do not take 'no-name' taxis that have only word 'Taxi' in their logo to avoid being cheated.
Take only these ones which have also the name of a company, for example:
Ele Taxi (+48 22 811 11 11),
Korpo Taxi (+48 22 561 91 00)
Sawa Taxi (+48 22 644 44 44) and so on....
If you arrive by car, you can park it in the street in the front of the Hostel. Pay in the parking meters from Monday till Friday between 8am and 6pm (3 PLN/hour)
