There wasn't much to fault with this hostel. Absolutely perfect location, affordable, decent enough kitchen facilities (only one hob, but that's still better than what you get at some places!), lovely rooms, lockers big enough for valuables, friendly receptionist who stayed late for us when we arrived later than expected, and a lift to get to its fourth/fifth floor location....

Literally within site of the central square. This was helpful finding our way back at night and gave us a good bearing of the city. We had a very cheap rate so I really can't complain about too much. Don't buy the 3 euro breakfast - it consisted of bread, cheese, and sliced meat. It would be cheaper to just... More

We stayed one night in early May. Staff was really friendly and everything worked out so well! Location is really good if u like to see all the basic sightseeing places. Rooms were clean and suited our trip well! Really worth of money!!

the most attractive point is its location : 3 min. by walking to Old Town Square, 5-10 mins by walking to Charles Bridge. And the female staff is so helpful and friendly One star reduction goes to horrible mattress. It's too old and broken in some points. I got hurt on back :( Overall, strongly recommend!

This Hostel didn't have 24 hours reception so we write to them for advance about arrival time at night. When we came some girl waiting for us she was helpful and friendly. We didn't have any problem with check in. She ask us about check out time suitable for as and explain how we can do it. Our room was... More

We stayed in this hostel mainly for its location. It's just one minute walking to the old town square! I believe price is the cheapest among hotels in the vicinity. Unfortunately you can only pay with cash, so be prepared. The shower and bathroom are pretty clean although the facility is mixed men and women. I am not used to... More

Our stay here got off to very bad start. When we had prebooked via hostelbookers we selected an arrival time of 8am however the hostel reception is only open 10am-6pm. The hostel is located on the uppers floors of a shared building and a number code or keycard is required to enter the building. Therefore when we first arrived at... More

We started off really enjoying this hostel, decent, clean facilities and very affordable. The only problem was that there were no lockers or safe place to keep your valuables. We opted to leave our cameras, iPods and passports with the front desk. It was to close overnight but opened up again in the morning. We woke up the next day... More
