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

We stayed in a private room at the Merlin Hostel (not the pension). It was basic and bare and beds were a bit hard. But the location was great, the value was fantastic, and I’d definitely stay here again for the price if looking for budget accommodation in Cesky Krumlov. Wifi worked well. Shared bathrooms were always clean and available.... More

We've had a pleasant stay for only one night in the hostel with five guys. It is a small and cozy hostel and the personnel is really friendly. We cooked our own meal in the kitchen, which was fine. Also the the common balcony was quite a nice spot to chill. Above all, the hostel is perfectly located in the... More

Good location, but the surrounding gets a little noisy if you have windows into the town side. We had problem because of the parking spot (overbooking) but kitchen is nice, the staff is friendly and the price is awesome.
