Cheap areas to stay in Warsaw

With cheap beers and bargain food, no visit to Warsaw has to set you back a bank-busting amount of cash. And it's no different when it comes to hotels either, because there are oodles of wallet-friendly places to stay in the Polish capital. Just look to the clutch of youth hostels that line up down the wide streets of the New Town district, complete with common rooms and shared kitchens. Meanwhile, Praga has its own boho digs, and there's even a smattering of cool design apartments and dormitories in the historic Old Town, too.

Cheap hotels in Warsaw

There are 126 bargain-priced guestrooms at the Première Classe Varsovie, where the simple, stripped-down interiors come with pod-style bathrooms and a breakfast bar, all just a 10-minute walk to the Warsaw Uprising Museum. For easy access to Warsaw Chopin Airport and the sprawling district of Mokotow, consider bedding down in the reasonably-priced Start Hotel Atos, which has on-site parking and its own lounge and bar attached. Meanwhile, the plush Mamaison Residence Diana is right in the heart of the action, with its colorful suites nestled between the National Museum and the Palace of Culture and Science.

Where to find cheap food in Warsaw

Stroll through the New Town and you'll discover countless holes-in-the-wall touting the famous Polish zapiekanka – a sort of half baguette pizza bread that’s the go-to lunchtime snack for folk all over the country. In the area around Filtry you'll find oodles of so-called milk bars. These ooze with the styles of the communist era and serve up no-frills Slavic foods for just pennies. Then there's Praga, and the wealth of affordable international eats that come with it – expect Neapolitan pizza, art cafés, cool cocktail bars, and more.

Cheap things to do in Warsaw

Thanks to Warsaw's rich history and wealth of totemic national institutions, there's always something awesome to do here for free. Start by hitting the alleyways and squares of the Old Town, to discover the gorgeous Royal Castle and the Rynek square. Then, move to the New Town and witness the MDM communist blocks of old, and the sobering remnants of the Warsaw Ghetto. On Tuesdays, there's free entry to the iconic National Museum, while Sunday means free admission to the acclaimed Warsaw Uprising Museum. During the summer, the riverbanks and the occasional beaches of the Vistula are the place to be, with ad hoc cafés and ice-cream sellers lining the whole area. Be sure to sample Warsaw's raucous nightlife, which bubbles up with the cheap bars of the Secret Garden area in New Town, and ticks over with beatnik types in Praga.

Cheap ways to get around Warsaw

Warsaw is actually pretty walkable – you can easily move between the main districts of the Old Town and New Town on foot. When it comes to going further afield, or if the snow is falling, be sure to hop aboard one of the urban trams. Day passes and multi-day passes are cheap, but be certain to validate your ticket as soon as you board. The Warsaw metro system and the light rail networks are also great for getting to the further flung areas of the city and the airport.
