We absolutely loved this hostel! It is the best value in town. Staff was friendly and upgraded us to a private room which was very inexpensive. There is a kitchen to share with complimentary tea. The rooms are small but cozy. Everything in town is within walking distance. Be prepared to pay in cash.

The price for the room is cheap so you can't get high level you expect. I still recommend! The host is very nice and friendly. You can get some information from the desk. Only one thing I want to blame is the room is too small, but it’s cheap so….

Really good location and cute little comfy rooms in the pension. Nice to have our own kitchen and bathroom. A few things weren't good... The room wasn't very clean when we arrived (hairs all over the floor) and the fridge and toaster didn't work.. A bit disappointing. The staff were very friendly but not really helpful at all. For such... More

it's among one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. Although a bit lack of atmosphere inside, hostel merlin is very well located right in the very centre of Cesky Krumlov. It has beautiful view from the window, I enjoyed my one-day-stay there. The only problem is that in the room,wifi signal sometimes get very weak and will disconnect... More

I wasn't very convinced when my partner told me that we were going to stay in a hostel until I saw their pictures and knowing that we can get a double room. - The Location: This hostel is like 5 minutes quick walk to the castle which is not far at all. There are some little shops around if you... More

I stayed at the Hostel Merlin with two other friends. It's quaint and adorable. The back porch is right on the river and has a lovely view. (I wish I could've visited when the weather was warmer and nicer). The bathrooms are a bit small and the water pressure in the shower isn't great. The beds arent the most comfortable... More

I went to Cesky Krumlov with my boyfriend and I was looking for some nice romantic place to stay for reasonable price. We stayed in the Pension Merlin - the reception is in the nearby hostel Merlin. Everything was clean, the kitchen is well equipped (kettle, coffee machine, plates, cutlery, mugs,...). It also has a little garden and you can... More

The pension had a small kitchen with all of the necessary implements, a beautiful garden full of hidden places to sit, and was very close to everything you want to see. We loved the place. The shower did spray water in all directions from a broken nozzle, but then, this isn't luxury accomadation.
