this is one of the nicest hostels i've stayed in, simply because there's almost nothing to do here :p you're 1228m up (which by a lot of standards ain't that high, i know), stuck in the snow, and most of the hostel is freezing cold. The common room and the bedroom are warm - it sleeps up to 12 people. Price is 18PLN per person per night (about $5).
Well, it's the highest hostel in the Bieszczady mountains - and they serve beer!! :p which, after trudging through snow for over 2 hours, is the only thing you want when you get there (well, that and a prime spot in front of the fireplace :p). There is a shower there too, though none of us used it - too woriied about freezing to death i think...
It is also the home of 'the Legend of Bieszczady', one of the most famous inhabitants of the mountains, mentioned in almost every guide book. Though his name slips my mind now.. :p
We asked quite a few of the locals for info on the best (and cheapest) place to stay. All of them recommended the private houses of Pani Danuta Kowalczyk - after some searching, we eventually got there, and were very happy. The house can sleep up to 12 people i guess (6 rooms, 2 beds each), with a TV, lovely fireplace, and a pretty nice kitchen.
Well, i guess the price, for one :p at only 25PLN per person per night, it has to be one of the cheapest self-catering places i've come across in Poland. Cutlery is provided in the kitchen, and bedding on the beds. There are also 2 bathrooms, and an upstairs toilet.
Apart from this, the owners are quite willing to help you out (for instance - if you can't get the fir started :p) and will sit with you and have a beer too...
No running water, no electricity, no private rooms (let alone private bathrooms), you'll pay through the nose for everything-even for water.
If you want to spend a unique night and welcome the rising sun on the top of the mountain, if you want to meet great people and talk with them, if you are ready to carry your belongings on your back up steep and muddy slopes until you reach 1224 metres- for sure it's a place for you.
In winter you can take part in ski-touring on the mountain pastures.
Komancza is situated at the very western gate to Bieszczady and unfortunately is not very suitable as a starting point of your hiking in the highest parts of Bieszczady. But it seems to be interesting as a place to relax and have some trips to wooden orthodox churches.
A mountain hut, very inexpesive but clean and cosy. Rooms have got showers and toilets. There's also a campground around and small cottages with no showers with are shared and situated in the main building.
Very friendly and helpful hosts-Yola i Yasiu. They have a mini-bus so transport to/from railway station in Sanok/Zagorz is available and of course transport to/from the mountains as well (on request). Home-made food is provided.
You may pay only for beds, but also full board and half board is possible at very reasonable prices.
This place is also off the beaten path-it's perfect if you want to wind down, listen to birds chirping or sit by the stream, maybe go fishing?
The hut is quite small (only a few rooms) but in summer there's also a campground nearby, it may be accessible by car but you can also leave the car in the distance and walk (aprox.15 mins)
A clean stream in the neighbourhood, fields of wild mint, peace, crickets in the grass... On the other hand-if you are looking for luxury - it's not the place for you! No regular electricity (only batteries are on for 2 or 3 hours in the evening), shared shower and not enough hot water. But this place has something special what attracts me and other people...
Perfectly located in Wetlina(a very heart of Bieszczady) , has got clean rooms with bathrooms and a restaurant with a very good cuisine and reasonable prices.
A very good atmosphere, although waitresses seemed to be a bit lazy...
