The city of Gdansk is famed for its beautiful scenery, as well as its rowdy Old Town nightlife of course, and this unique hostel places you on the bank of the stunning Motlawa River. There are a variety of traditionally decorated private rooms overlooking the river. The location on the river is perfect for exploring the city’s rich heritage and sightseeing highlights. St Mary's Church (the fourth largest brick church in the world, didn't you know) is only 5 minutes away by foot so you can at least experience some of the local culture before hitting the booze. Then take advantage of the complimentary WiFi back at the hostel and send some pictures of said culture to the loved ones at home, and prove you saw something other than the inside of a bar.
