The State Of Polish Laundromats

There is one laundromat in Poland. It is in Krakow. That’s what I’m told at the desk of my hotel in Warsaw. “In Poland everyone has a laundry machine in their home. Not like in USA.” Well how about the other few dozen countries in Europe? Are there no laundromats there?

Maybe this is why Europeans have the reputation for smelling like they haven’t showered in weeks. I mean what’s the point if your clothes are going to stink?

So for the low, bargain, basement price of 76.5PLN (~$24) I can have three pairs of socks and three pairs of underwear laundered and returned to me tonight.

The alternative is to go to a hostel up the road. I can rent a dorm bed for 55PLN (~$17) and they’ll do all of my laundry for free. Then I come back in the morning and get it.
