Dzialdowo train station at night

I would like to know what Dzialdowo train station is like. I am travelling from Warsaw to Olzstyn in October. My flight arrives just before 5pm to Warsaw airport. On PKP site, I found two trains to Olzstyn - at 7:10pm and at 11:25pm. If I can't make it to 7:10 train, I will have to catch 11:25pm train. According to the schedule, I will have to spend 3 hours in the middle of the night (from 2am to 5am) in the train station in Dzialdowo. Is the station safe?

Thank you

I'd sugest not to take that 11.25 train as you may find yourself the only waiting passanger at that train station along with one or two local homeless.

Consider taking a cab from the airport, 2 hours is planty of time to reach Warszawa Centralna station... or ...if late take a bus from Warsaw to Olsztyn at 19.45 (plus one leaving at 22.00 on Sundays)

The train is at 19.38, not 19.10, so I guess half hour more is enough.
Taxi should not be very expensive.
I used to stay at night at few small stations, it's ok, though not the most comfortable situation.

Thank you so much for the replies. I have checked again and the train is still at 19:10 on October 9. The bus idea never occured to me, but it is great and will give me a little extra time. I will be flying from Vancouver via Amsterdam with a very short layover in Amsterdam, so I am not sure how long the customs and luggage will take in Warsaw.

Also, I thought Dzialdowo is a busy hub and there are always people around. When I clicked on the station name on PKP site, it told me that trains come and go pretty much all night with 10-20 minute intervals. But I never thought about homeless people. Thank you for the tip.
