Couple of tips:
The best way to buy a ticket is to find a ticket machine.
You can also buy it at newsagents', usually situated near the bus stops. Ask for a single fare ticket (bilet jednorazowy), which entitles to a journey on one vehicle. Don't forget to validate it on a bus.
Do not take 'no-name' taxis that haven't got the word 'Taxi' in their logo. Take only these ones which have also the name of a company, for example:
Elle Taxi (+48 22 811 11 11),
Korpo Taxi (+48 22 561 91 00)
Sawa Taxi (+48 22 644 44 44)
If you arrive by car, you can park it in the street in front of the Hostel. Pay in the parking meters from Monday untill Friday between 8am and 6pm (around 3 PLN/hour)
The nearest guarded parking is located behind our building (in front of The 'Polski' Theatre) – 98 PLN/day
