The walking tour with Gil Conti is a must do. A really friendly guy with great knowledge of Prague. Well worth the couple of hours walking through the streets to see things from a local's perspective. He is open to requests about any sites you may want to see but also knows many cool places most tourists would be oblivious... More

I've stayed there On April, 2013. I liked it compared to other hostels, I paid 700 CZK per day, It's not the cheapest hostel, but breakfast was included. The location is great, next to the river, like 10 minutos from Charles Bridge, and 10 minutes walking to Stare Mesto. There was big lockers what is REALLY IMPORTANT in every hostel.

This hostel was perfect for our group of 6 students on holiday from Copenhagen. Rooms were cheap, bathrooms immaculate and the staff were extremely helpful. The highlight of my trip was definitely the free walking tour. Our tour guide Gil was really down to earth and took us around Prague on a 3 hour casual stroll. We even learnt a... More

This is more than an hostel, it's a cheap hotel with all the comforts, a great view (from 6th floor) and nice rooms...it also organizes a lot of activities (I recommend the visit to the observatory with Mirak, he's lovely and the tour is nice and uncommon)...just bring your own towels cause they are not provided!

We stayed for a single night at the hostel and the stay was comfortable. We were four of us and we had a room. The room was neat. The common kitchen had enough utensils for cooking. The location was also on the main road and well connected. It was also close to the sight seeing places and a Metro station... More

So far on my 4th night here. Reviewing now while I have a chance. The hostel's location is very convenient, right on Narodni just a few minutes from the Wenceslas Square and the Charles Bridge. Also just a 5 minute walk from the biggest club in Praha and 5-10 minutes away from many clubs and bars, museums and nightlife. The... More

The cooking activity was also very fun, We tried some Check food with other hostel's guests. The hole experience... More

Clean, big, secure and cheap. The activities are very nice specially the jazz night with Mirek in a club which is 3 blocks near to the hostel. Another good activity is the cooking Czech food with Mirek as well and Pavlina Markova. Defently a good reason to come back to Prague!
