Reluctantly I've given this hostel an 'average' review; I say reluctantly, because there's actually nothing average about it at all: the rooms are truly awesome, the location couldn't be better, but the staff are truly the most horrendous I've ever had the displeasure to encounter in a hostel anywhere. So on balance, 3 stars. Firstly, the major positive to staying... More

Dear James, I´m sad you had so unpleasant stay because of my staff at my place. I spend a lot of time with my staff to explain them what is customer care. When I see, some of them can´t understand it. You are not the first one, I have heard more complains about this member of staff and I focus... More

Upon first arriving at the Arpacay for our 3 night stay, I was amazed by it's location in the old town and proximity to the castle and other key sightseeing features, as well as the short (and very scenic) walk to the Charles bridge and old town square, centre of Prague's fantastic nightlife. The Hostel itself was immaculately clean, with... More

This hostel was very quiet and although it was clean and very nicely located, I found it extremely difficult to meet friends here because the age group was so varied and the common area was always empty. However for those people who are just looking for a nice hostel that's quiet and near everything I would definitely recommend staying here.... More

Near to the Castle and a short walk from the old town, super comfortable beds, clean and spacious bathrooms and bedrooms! Breakfast is amazing, not for free but affordable (really cheap, actually). The only con is that you can't use the kitchen to make lunch, but as Prague is a cheap city, you can find affordable restaurants around. The kitchen... More

First and foremost, this hostel is in an amazing location. If you have ever wanted to sleep under a castle, now is your chance. But beware, castles are built on hills for a reason. To get to this hostel, you will have to walk up a hill for about 1/4 of a mile. It's really not that big of a... More

We stayed here thru a recommendatio from a friend, and we're glad we did. The hostel is very clean and well-maintained. The staff is friendly and helpful. Room rates are very reasonable. Buffet breakfast (which you get for a fee of 7kr) was also delicious and very filling. It is also quite close to Charles Bridge and very near the... More

Our stay here began well. We arrived in the early hours of the morning due to train delays and had no hassles checking in late. We had booked a 4bed mixed dorm, and when we got to our room our beds were up a ladder in an attic joined with another dorm below us. This caused us no issues. It... More

We stayed here for just one night but during our trip was one of the best Hostels, the staff is really friendly it's on a hill but really close to Charles Bridge so it worth it. Rooms are really nice and you get a balcony, bathrooms were really clean as well. On the same street you have several restaurants and... More

Everything is great with its location there, just few steps to the Castle and reachable within 10-15min walk to the center! You will have a locker right under your bunk bed and a quite big lock. I didn't have any bad experience there. Love the shower room and free use of shower gel and shampoo :D

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the picturesque Nerudova street right below Prague Castle.Sleep in a unique historical building from the 16th century and enjoy an amazing view over the Lesser Town from your bedroom window. Start your day with our buffet-style breakfast or make your own home-cooked meal in our fully equipped self-catering kitchen during the day. Chill out in our cosy stylish lounge, have a cold beer on the courtyard balcony or just relax from the tourist crowds on our comfy couches in a common room where you will meet a lot of travellers at any time during the day or night. A charming restaurant Valoria is located in the same building as our hostel. You can enjoy some great food in their cellar restaurant, or on their fantastic rooftop garden with a panoramic view over the whole of Prague.At the hostel you can find also a large LCD TV with international channels and a DVD player with a wide range of DVDs.

All dorms are equipped with personal lockers and wooden beds with comfy mattresses and big pillows. 2 Small 4bed attic dorms offer the best view towards the Old Town and Prague Castle but be ready to climb 4 flights of stairs! 2 Female only dorms with wooden ceilings are specially designed for women-travellers. The dorms share 2 toilets and 2 showers equipped with a hair dryer. The bright and spacious 12bed dorm has a stunning view, an originally painted wooden ceiling, and is probably our nicest room in general.The large 16bed dorm with private bathroom is a great deal for travellers on a budget.
