One of the best hostels i have stayed ! The hostess friendly and the interior is so warm and it almost travels you through time ! And then you go out to the balcony only to be captivated by the river-side view ! I definitely recommend it if you go in Cesky Krumlov.

I visited Hostel Skippy a few months back with my friends. We went on a roadtrip throughout the whole Czech Republic and we had decided to stay at Cesky Crumlov for one night. Somehow we ended up spending 3 days at that beautiful graphic village. The hostel was clean and cosy with an amazing view. We even made some new... More

Had a wonderful stay at Hostel Skippy! It feels like home as soon as you walk in, the owner was so welcoming and the location was fantastic, right on the river! The atmosphere of the hostel was superb and it was immaculate. Overall we had a great stay and will definitely return if ever in Cesky Krumlov again!

We stayed one night at hostel skippy and loved it so much. It's a 5 min walk from the center yet you feel like your in the countryside. Skippy was wonderful, we could converse for hours. The rooms are very homely and the sound of the river running past is so nice.

We stayed in Skippy hostel just for one night but the magic atmosphere made us want to stay more.. The owners were very nice, they were waiting for us and helped with everything, giving advice about what to do and where to go. The wiev from the room on the river was amazing. Wonderful!

Stayed here by myself in November. No one else was staying here and sort of felt like I was treading on eggshells as a guest in someone else's house. Didn't feel particularly welcome. Had been looking fwd to organising activities in the surrounding area inc horse riding. Their website said they'd help you organise things to do... I don't think... More

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
