I’m rather really worried about Poland, especially Warsaw and Wroclaw.
Why? Please read the accounts below.
I know everything in a backpacking trip (even if not a CS-ing one) is subject to changes, but I really intend to nail down things for my Baltic and Poland parts, mainly because:
– I want to see operas, and I need to buy tickets in advance;
– the big UEFA is coming, and one needs to be VERY SURE about accommodation.
I just matched my dates with the UEFA match dates, and then I checked some hostel booking websites: for dates of matches and dates right proceeding the matches, all hostels are either FULLY BOOKED, or the prices are inflated to five times or even more. (Can anyone imagine paying 60 or more 70 Euros for a bunk bed in a dorm room?)
(I love various sports, but I really do not care for football and will not be able to afford the hostel/hotels’ “UEFA special prices.”)
My concerns are:
– I know it seems too early to ask for couches right now, since most CS hosts probably don’t plan that much in advance;
– I originally (naively) thought I can book some hostels as backup plans, (in case I get a couch, I can cancel and pay only the booking fees and deposits,) but as mentioned above, hostels seem not to be an option AT ALL.
What should I do? (I’m really not trying to ing melodramatic.)
– Should I RE-ROUTE just to be safer? or
– Should I just relax, since I’m simply worried too much, and there’s no need to book hostels, and just be patient about finding couches?
