The choice of accommodation can be very subjective - for some quality and comfort are the most important, for others it can be location, price or the view from the window. That is why we want you to be able to compare and find an offer that will meet your expectations.
Below we describe the 5 most popular types of accommodation chosen by our students. Use our service search engine to add your accommodation to your trip cost estimate.
Hostels are a popular short-term form of accommodation often chosen by people who have just arrived in Poland, do not want to or cannot live in a dormitory and want to search for accommodation on the spot. Hostels are the cheapest form of accommodation offering a large number of accommodation places in almost every Polish city. The hostels offer 2, 3, 4 and even 8-bedded rooms with shared bathrooms, a lounge and a kitchen.
The most popular form of accommodation is temporary rental which can become a long-term rental depending on needs. Think Poland has in Warsaw its own flats for rent under the name Student Stay. Our offer includes around dozen international student apartments located in the districts around the centre of Warsaw. In the offer we have private single and double shared rooms and common areas at your disposal: bathrooms with washing machine, guest rooms, balconies and fully equipped kitchens. Our houses have access to wireless Wi-Fi Internet. The tenants are usually other students coming from all over the world.
Students of state higher education institutions may count on a place in dormitories belonging to universities. The dormitories are usually located on campuses, so students can save on commuting. They can also use the university's facilities at any time: library, wireless Internet access, café, etc.
This is the cheapest form of long-term accommodation. Public dormitories offer 2, 3 and 4-people bedrooms with shared kitchens and bathrooms. Due to the high demand for them, it is necessary to book this sort of accommodation as early as possible.
Every year the base of private dormitories in Poland gets bigger. Their advantage ispossibility of long-term residence – you can make a reservation for half a year or even for a full year. Unfortunately, there are usually more people willing to live in the dormitory than the number of places available. Before moving in, you must pay a deposit or the advance of rent for 2-6 months.
Renting an apartment or room
The housing market in large Polish cities is developing very dynamically. That's why there is a lot of direct rental offers from owners. For students who cannot stay in dormitories, Think Poland helps them to find a flat for rent in the real estate market. We cooperate with real estate agencies and private owners who have decided to rent their flats to international students.
