I visited this hostel January 2015 for 3 nights with my 4 best friends (girls all in our late 20s) we had a great time. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Great value for money at 12.50 euro a night for a 6 bed dorm. Very clean. Free tea and coffee all day. Cheap alcohol on the premises. Breakfast not... More

I arrived after going up 3 flights of stairs to a friendly welcome. At the time I arrived, there was a large hole that had appeared in the floor which was under repair hence the upstairs lounge could not be used. The Hostel very kindly provided free beer as a compensation. Tea and coffee was always free and ready and... More

My son stayed at this hotel for 13 days in December, to do a czech course near by there, and he likes this place a lot. The people are very friendly, the security are very good (they didn't permit any person who don't stay in the hotel to enter in the rooms), the breakfast was free and more than enough... More

Came here with just one friend, for two nights. One of the best hostels that we stumbled across whilst travelling Europe! Firstly, very sociable by having their alternative happy hour nights, and BBQ, we met loads of friendly travellers and also staff- also good for lone travellers. Along with the washing facilities, free internet and great kitchen facilities; makes it... More

I came here with two friends knowing very little about Prague. It is a little out of the way, but the staff is very helpful, the rooms felt very secure and comfortable, and the decoration was out of this world. We booked a 3 bed private and it was very cozy. Be warned, there is an enormous staircase up to... More

There's no... More

i spent three days on this hostel and i guess it was not worth it. there's a huge stair to reach the reception, so it makes impossible to carry your luggages. also, i thought there would be parties or people around the bar at night, but i found myself drinking alone with my friend all the nights in the hostel....

Affordable dormitory sleeping with spacious rooms and the bathrooms in the hallway. Solid and tasty breakfast roped into the price. Complimentary mulled wine served on selected evenings during the week. Small "lounge" area for the backpackers to mingle, swap stories and socialize. Reception cascading information about sightseeing, getting around, activities etc when necessary - although some of their staff sounded... More
