From the airport
Take bus 106 to RENOMA (about 30-35 minutes). Once you get off at RENOMA stop, keep going in the direction of the tram. There should be a stream to your left and an intersection (Podwale/Świdnicka intersection) right ahead. Cross the street at the intersection. There should be a big shopping center called RENOMA and a tram stop next to it. Wait in front of the Renoma shopping center and get tram 7 direction POŚWIĘTNE (7 stops/10 minutes) and get off at PAULIŃSKA. From PAULIŃSKA you should be next to a small park. Face right, you should be walking with the park on your left. The hostel is 100 Meters from you on pl. Św Macieja street next to the shop with the green frog logo!

By Taxi: takes about 25 minutes and costs 55-60 PLN to the hostel.
From the train/bus station
As the main bus station is under costruction all the buses arrive to the temporary one, wchich is only 100 metres from the former bus station. It is now located in the parking lot of an administration building directly behind the platform access tunnel of Wrocław's train station. That's why we recommend walking to the train station to catch trams to the hostel from there.

The stop you need to walk to is called DWORZEC GŁ. PKP. Take the tram 11 - direction KROMERA, tram 9 - direction SĘPOLNO or tram 8 - Direction ZAWALNA. Doesn’t matter which one you’ll get on, all of them will take you to the tram stop called PL. BEMA, where you should get off. It is the fifth stop from the Main Train Station (or 6 stops away from the Main Bus Station -Dworzec Autobusowy in Polish. Tram 11 doesn’t stop there, though). The PL. BEMA tram stop is just past a big intersection with a modern glass building on the left side. To get to the hostel from there, go in the front of the glass building where the ING Bank is and keep following the street in the direction of the Rossman and Alior Bank. Keep going straight and just past the Telepizza you will cross the street onto a street called ul. H. Probusa (turning slightly diagonally right). Follow it until the end and you will get to pl. Św Macieja. Look to your left and you will see the hostel :)!
Coming back
From the market square
Walking: It's EASY - you just have to walk in a straight line from the market square.

In a straight line leave from the North-East corner of the market square (North east corner is where there is a pharmacy). Take Kuźnicza street (the street with Masala the big indian restaurant). Keep going straight up past the naked swordsman statue, cross the university bridge, go past Dubois tram station, walk up Lokietka and finally turn right when you see the Grampa's Hostel sign on pl. sw. Macieja.
Good tip!!
We always suggest using a website Jakdojade.pl, which is great for checking different routes, connections and timetables of trams and buses. It basically helps you in getting from point A to B, using public transportation and in moving around the city in general. Most of Polish people use this website in all of the bigger cities in Poland, so you should too! It’s even more helpful when you arrive to the city during the night hours or...if you don’t know where you exactly are ;) In section “Punkt startowy”, write down the address of where you are at the moment or the name of the nearest bus/tram stop. In “Punkt docelowy” field fill in where you want to get. The website will show you maps of where the nearest stops are or how to walk to your final destination. Pretty great, right?
*Wherever you are, Grampa’s Hostel is located on Plac Świętego Macieja 2, so hopefully you’ll always find the way to come back! Bus/tram stops that are a few minutes walk from the hostel are: Paulińska, Dubois, Pomorska and Plac Bema.
*A single or 30-minutes ride cost 3 pln and you can purchase a ticket on every bus and tram (little grey machines located in the middle of the vehicle) using you card. Don’t forget to validate it (using little yellow machines)!

o nas

Nothing but great things to say about staying here. Everyone is very nice and friendly and its a great location.

Perfect hostel. Clean and big room, great kitchen, free laundry machine and friendly staff. What a great hostel.

New and super clean, I never waited for showers in 5 nights. Staff were great, there was a big common room and the kitchen was decent. When I return to Wroclow I will stay here again.
