GDANSK, Poland

Area Code058 $1= 3.89zl, Euro=4.56zl, May 11, 2004

There is limited, year round budget accommodation in Gdansk. However during the summer the situation improves due to university dorms (the best value option) opening up, some may be open during September. Unfortunately staff don't usually speak much English, making it difficult to make a telephone reservation, It's better just to go there. Though dorm style you will probably not have to share a room with strangers. Many are based on the campus on ul. Wyspianskega, prices vary from 35zl/p for a single with shared bath to 40zl for single with attached bath.

Youth hostels: There are several in town. The most convenient is at ul Walowa 21, Tel. 3012313, reservations are recommended.

Homestays: Good budget option. The agent, Grand Tourist ul. Heweliusza 8, T3012634, arranges rooms in the centre s70z d90zl. Almatur office, T3012931, can also reserve private rooms and university hostel rooms but aren't very friendly.

Campsites: There are several around Gdansk- ask at the tourist office for info.
