Budget Tips
1) For good food and for a resonable price go to a restaurant called the "Roosters", its just of 'Old Town' (the main square in Krakow). Lets just say that "Hooters" as nothing on this place :-D

2) For beer I would recommend buying beer in the supermakets, its very very cheap. "Tyskie" is one I would recommend. Buy some cans before you go out, the pubs and clubs can be expensive.

3) Beware that the pubs close early everyday. Most pubs will be closed by midnight, but you can go to night clubs till around 4 or 5am, but drink is more expensive in these places.

4) Plan to visit Auschwitz & the Saltmines when you are there. Plan to go early & if you have an inter-rail ticket you can use that to take the train to both places.

5) DON'T stay in The Strangers Hostel, unless you have problems with getting "rasson" on your fingers (fucking rasson man!) or like wearing your shorts below yor ass cheeks!!!
