The Second Home Hostel in Oswiecim is within a minute walk from the town square, and offers many small "extra" services for a fee--but these make a difference!

I was advised to stay in the hostel by my good, local friend. Coming with older parents and teenage son, I was initially slightly worried about the place, but it is the...

We were immediately struck with the owner's hospitality and going out of her way to help us. She had the best recommendations of places to go during our stay. The hostel is very clean, and has a...

Most people do day trips from Krakow to visir botrh Auschwitz and Birkenau, this will be a very exhauting day and the visits will be rushed and incomplete. I think you need at least a full day there to do the sites any justice, plus the fact that if you go at 8 AM when they open you can have...

This is a very nice, well equipped appartement, managed by lovely people... ;) The place is right in the center of Auschwitz and you can easily grab a bus or a cab nearby to get around. We strongly recommend the Drugi Dom... :P
