I felt like home here. It is at a beautiful location on the river. Has a very cosy warm feel to it. More than the place, the owners are extremely warm people who will help you and guide you. I enjoyed this fairy tale city a lot especially because of the hostel owners. Clean rooms and amenities. I was traveling... More

Nice welcome with an introduction and places to go in Cesky Krumlov. Nice talks with the owners in their old house, where you feel like a guest. The dorm is a little musty though, toilet, bathroom and kitchen are clean. From the balcony at the river you can see the people turnover with their canoes and laugh at them (the... More

This "hostel" was one of the highlights of my Europe trip. I put hostel in quotation marks since it is actually just a lady's house situated right on a beautiful river overlooking a hillside. Skippy was such a gracious and nice host, and I spent 2 hours talking with her on her deck about Czech Republic history, politics, and life!... More

I dare you to try and find better hostesses than Skippy and Olga. From the moment you arrive they go above and beyond to make your stay in idyllic Cesky a memorable one. The pension is very clean and charming. There is no bad location in Cesky and Hostel Skippy is located right on the river where you can sit... More

I've been to three hostels in Cesky Krumlov (had to switch every day due to lastminute availability), and this is what I found: Hostel Skippy: This was my favourite hostel in Cesky Krumlov. The owner Skippy, and her help Olga, are super friendly and fun to chat with. This hostel felt more like someone's home: it's an older, beautiful house,... More

Recently stayed for 2 nights in the double room. It's not like any other hostel in Europe - the rooms were very peaceful and homely with a very nice view of the river. Skippy and Olga showed and recommended to us all the hot spots in town which was very helpful :) It's abit from the train station but very... More

This cozy guesthouse is located right on the Vlatava river, only a short walk from the old town and about a 20 minute walk from the main bus station. Skippy and OLgA are warm and welcoming hosts and have created a lovely place for travellers to chill out. The rooms are spacious with comfy beds, there's nice hot water in... More

This is one of the best places I've ever stayed at. The price is quite reasonable, it's cozy and friendly. The owners Skippy and Olga are lovely and know a lot about Česky Krumlov and will give you the best advice for places to go to. We've just stayed for one night and I wish it were more. I will...

Amazing hostel with a river view. Skippy is warm and friendly and it was a pleasure to spend a couple of days at her place. Cesky Krumlov is a fabulously tiny town and Skippy offers awesome suggestions on things to do (do ask her about the trek in the Sumava forest) and places to eat. The rooms were clean and... More
