I've crossed on foot at Medyka and had no trouble. They will ask you for the address of the place you are staying. I just wrote down Hotel Lviv, and it ended up being the place I did stay in. You will notice that the locals stuff their passports with American bills to facilitate their crossing.

"It's easy to get to Lviv from Krakow. One way is a night bus. The drawback is long lines getting through Ukrainian Immigration at the border at Medyka.Another way is to take a train to Przemysl and then a 20-minute minibus ride to Medyka. The fastest way to get to Ukraine is to cross the border on foot in Medyka at the border post with all the Ukrainian and Polish cigarette and alcohol smugglers. This is also an interesting attraction to see. On the Ukrainian side you simply catch a minibus to Lviv. The whole trip shouldn't take more than six hours."
