Backpacking in Poland: Staying at the Poco Loco Hostel in Poznan

It was my first time in Poland in 8 years. It did feel hard to believe that it had been so long, probably aided by the fact that I have met so many Polish people around the world in my jobs and travels the last few years. And it was time to tour Poznan finally. I had actually passed through the city of Poznan once before though – in March 2005 when I was on a train from Berlin in Germany to Warsaw in Poland. But now here I was in Poznan for real. I really had no idea what to expect. I booked into the cosy Poco Loco Hostel and took things from there.

This hostel is the perfect place if you are backpacking in Poznan and here are 5 reasons why I loved it.

1.Perfect Location
The Poco Loco Hostel is not in the Old Town like some others, which means you are perfectly located half way between the Old Town and the Train and bus station. Get off your train, walk to the hostel and then dumps your bags off and explore the Old Town. It’s also on Taczaka Street which is in an area boasting good bars, cafes and restaurants.

2.Relaxing Lounge
It’s always nice to have a cosy social area to chill out in. The lounge here is relaxing and there is also a cool sofa and lots of tourist information in the reception area too.

4. WiFi
Poland is now becoming a cool hip WiFi place for bloggers and backpackers. Not only do some of the coolest travel bloggers come from Poland (like my friends Cez and Agness) but there are some great cafes and bars for Digital Nomads now too. But sure, just chill in the Poco Loco and make use of the excellent fast WiFi.

5.Cleanliness Awards
The hostel is clean and comfortable, winning awards for it down the years, so you feel spotless hanging out here and ahead of your next journey. A quick shower and I headed on a night train to Krakow next!
