Creaking ladders and questionable plug sockets, ice-cold showers and dodgy wifi: when it comes to hostels, I’ve had my fair share of experiences. It was only when I logged back into Hostelworld to book my accommodation for my upcoming trip to Vietnam that I realised just how many hostels I’ve stayed in over the last […]Read More The six types of people you’ll meet in every hostel
Warsaw is generally known for being a historic city. The capital of Poland, (although frequently confused with Krakow) it’s filled with faux old buildings, steeped in history and you’ll never fall short of learning a new fact.
