I am looking for some advice about accommodations for my trip to Krakow. I am going with two other young people and we are looking for a budget place to stay. Three is a tough number, so our selection is limited. I am having trouble knowing what is a good location. We are going for three days in December, and we plan on visiting Auschwitz, the Salt Mine, the Castle, the central square...all the main stuff. I have seen some stuff about being close to the square and others about being in the Jewish Quarter where the night life tends to be. So here are my questions:
1. Which location would be more ideal?
2. How far is the Jewish Quarter from the main square in old town?
3. Any specific recommendations for places to stay?
