Kraków is Poland’s premier tourist destination so it has plenty of accommodation options. However, advance booking during the busy summer season is recommended for anywhere central. The Old Town has a selection of accommodation across all budget ranges. Kazimierz also has a number of hostels and atmospheric hotels, in a relatively quiet location. Modern hostels, geared towards the needs and expectations of Western backpackers, have sprung up everywhere. While mainly serving the budget traveller market, nearly all of them also have private rooms in the midrange price bracket. Private rooms and apartments can also be a good option if you’re intending to stay a bit longer.
