The good: hostel is very cheap and in a good location. Clean. The bad: Water pressure is slim to nothing. The beds and sheets are not comfortable and need to be replaced. Also there are no fans or AC in the rooms so you have to keep the window open to not burn up however it's incredibly noisy outside most... More

Excpetional value for money in this hostel in central Česky Krumlov, where a single room costs as little as 265 kč. The girl at the reception was very nice and the hostel is clean and furnished with all the essentials (apart from a fridge). The bathrooms were two per floor, which means you always find one free, although the shower... More

I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of summer. The hostel is beautiful and is in the best location! There is a fully equipped kitchen and lots of little nooks and crannies to hang out. The showers had terrible water pressure and temperature but that was the only downside. The beds were comfy and everything was clean and... More

I got a single room for two nights.(one night per 250kc) The staff is nice and lovely, and the location of the hostel is great. Also, the wifi, kitchen, and all the facilities are good. I would like to go here again

Nice location, just next to the bridge, good view from outside. Single beds in the dorm room. Basic and clean, thats all I need anyway. Reception wasnt very helpful with tips but thats ok as the town is relatively easy to get to know. Thanks

stayed here for 2 nights during my Krumlov visit, 250kc a night with private room is a great bargain. The room was a little small as expected but absolute clean and gave me good sleeps. showers and toilets were clean too. Host was helpful enough, definitely a good choice

The Hostel is usually okay for a low-budget accomodation. The staff cleans every day, warm water and nicely located right at the river. Unfortunately the receptionist leaves in the afternoon (to keep the low prices possible the owner said) but that seems to be the motivation for some guests to go wild. There was not a single night without people... More

The location is perfect. There are two problem: 1. Shower is weak and not Hot enough. 2. It's hard to meet the reception. Not covenient for us who have no phone card here. My friend even waited for 1 hour to check out. (Not a big problem though) Overall worth the price as a budget travel in a small town.

We spent one night here in October 2014 and were delighted with the location, very close proximity to everything you want to see... The girl who met up at reception was very friendly but had very little English, not something I complain about however as I am in her country but we quickly realised we wouldn't be able to enquire...

First I should say that CK is a Unesco world heritage town, very small and very beautiful. It is therefore fairly packed with tourists, especially in August. There are also well known music festivals here in summer which the Czechs all come to. Finding accommodation at such times is very hard if not impossible. We stayed a night in Ceske... More
