I had the best time of my life at this hostel. The hostel staff were the best and so friendly. Me and a few others just stayed up talking to them all night, taking advantage of the free tea and coffee The facilities were great and very clean and the breakfast was simple but did the job I would recommend...

This was the greatest weekend I had in Europe during my entire study abroad in Fall 2015. I recommend going to the front desk and asking to go to the gun range. Also, a cheap can can get you to anyplace you need to go in the city or you can walk. Overall, this hostel is cheap and has cheap... More

First of all, I have to say it, the staff is great. They helped us a lot when we had problems with our car and had to take it to a service. Also, with orientation in the city, vouchers for free drinks at parties and basically any request we had. Very creative place, loved the paintings on the doors and... More

Came here with a couple of friends and we really enjoyed our stay. Decent rooms - nothing special but it's got a nice vibe. Nice communal kitchen and free breakfast and coffee - can't really ask for more. Slight walk into town but not actually that bad. Fab pizza place just down the road as well which is well worth...

Okay, so this place is extremely cheap, so it’s hard to complain, but I will say that it is a bit far from the center of Prague, enough that warranted bus rides. Each bed did not have its own light and outlet which was a bit frustrating but there were plenty of outlets in the room. Each room is big... More

We had a great time hanging out with other young backpackers here. If you are older and looking for a quiet, clean, professional, place to stay then look elsewhere. On the other hand if you are looking to party and meet other young travelers this is the place to go! Great sense of community and the staff were awesome. It... More

You have got quite a lot of options to choose between. Bathroom and showers are clean. There are enough showers that meant there were not any line... More

I read some crap reviews before I went, but decided to go anyway, I am so glad I did. Anja (I think her name was) helped me with my bag to my room. I then had a nap and the night shift receptionist was there - Hunza. What. A. Legend. Like, genuinely the coolest guy I ever met. One of... More
