Nothing fancy about this hostel, the only good things i have to give credits to it are good location to Charles Bridge and the staff are quite friendly. But the rooms are not great. Don't be deceived by the photos of website. It looks different. My biggest complaint is 3 dorms room (avg 4 persons each) are sharing 1 bathroom... More

The staff at Charles Bridge are truly wonderful! As they doubled up as tourist info they knew all the good places to go and were incredibly helpful, even with small things like trying to change money etc. It was a massive bonus to have free tea, coffee, hot chocolate and water whenever we wanted, which also helped keep costs low...

I stayed at this hostel three times last year and I always felt like I was coming home. We stayed in the 7 bed all female dorm twice and it is my favorite! No bunk beds, private bath, beautiful ceiling, amazing view - you'll feel like a rich orphan kid a la Madeleine. We had a view of the Charles... More

Location was incredible. We stayed in the three bed attic apartment in this hostel and had a great time. The staff couldn't be better and we were greeted with free drinks on arrival and loads of information about the city. The room was fantastic with brilliant kitchen and dining facilities. It really couldn't be better!

I'm quite sure that this was the best european hostel I have been in: helpfull and friendly staff, perfect location, clean, economical and a cat. It was a lively hostel, but noises were never too loud or disturbing. We (four women, age 30-65 years) had room for 4 people with private bathroom and kitchen and we enjoyed our stay. So... More

Fully deserves all the fantastic reviews basically. It's located right in the middle of the touristy part of Prague, literally right next to Charles Bridge. Staff were great. Free tea/coffee all day. Opportunity to go on lots of free tours which you only get from staying at the hostel. Go on them! We went on two which were great.

My friend and I stayed three nights at the hostel, and couldn't have asked for better accommodations for what we paid. All the staff were extremely friendly and answered all of our questions thoroughly. The free water/coffee/hot chocolate is the bomb diggity. Everything was very clean and though we had our own room we did share a bathroom, but we... More

Of course, we paid for this, but how come this is more like a friendship instead from their hospitality given to us? Great service and must try their hot chocolate, you will never missed this by their pushing. Ask, then you will have anything you need, and even this required to paid, it will be the best offer from the... More

Great hostel, ideal location. Just off the Charles Bridge in the old town. Plenty of restaurants and bars nearby - close to all the main tourist attractions too. The staff were hugely helpful - I arrived before I could check in and they stored my bags, sat me down and provided me with tea and then a beer - all... More
