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

Just found an old camera with some hilarious photos on it. Myself and 5 friends shared a dorm room here, had a wild time and although my hosteling days are over now-if I was ever going to go back to one this would be it.

We stayed here for 3 nights in a 11 Beds Mixed Room and it was good. The room was clean as well as the restrooms, the bathroom could have been cleaner but make sure you wear flip flops. The breakfast was really good, a nice way to start the day, it had ham, cheese, salami, cucumber, bread, jelly and nutella.... More

We did few day trip to Prague and found the hostel fantastic. Close to the bus station, not so far away from the centre. We were welcomed warmly by interesting people eager to help with everything:) Delicious breakfast that was included in the price. Absolutely worth staying:)!
