Hostel Review: Staying at the Green Hostel in Historic Toruń

“We need something to shout about and we need it now!” – The Waves. As I mentioned in late 2017 after finishing my “visit every Province in Poland” challenge, I needed something new. Being cemented in pretty Poland pumped my heart beat to a vivacious level of sentimentality. Destiny sent me here, and it was Read more about Hostel Review: Staying at the Green Hostel in Historic Toruń[…]

My Cosy Stay at the Event Hostel in Opole

There are a huge number of cities in Poland that are still unventured and unpopular for tourists, yet they should be. Many of these towns and cities are regional capitals such as Zielona Góra (Lubuskie), Rzeszów (Podkarpackie), Starogard Gdański (Kociewie) and Olsztyn (Masury).

Hostel Review: Sleeping on the LONGEST Street in Europe at Music Hostel, Łódź

“Oh baby baby it’s a wild world” – Catalonia Stevens Life takes us on ridiculous twists and turns. People we meet often get things wrong.

Hostel Review: Staying at the Famous Mosquito Hostel in Krakow

Krakow is an old school backpacker’s trail hang out. Most overland backpackers and inter-railers end up here on their journeys around Europe, it’s such a cliched stop over, some North Americans even think it’s the capital city. Well it once was, of course, a claim that only Warszawa and Gniezno can also stake. Some travellers Read more about Hostel Review: Staying at the Famous Mosquito Hostel in Krakow[…]
