1st time in Prague, a few of the lads visited for a birthday party, this hostel is perfect, really good price and the breakfast was great, dining room was very clean. Some would say it is a little bit out of the way but its only a 15min tram ride into town costing 24CZK (less than £1) or a 3... More

If you only a few day in Prague you may want to stay closer to the downtown core. It was really easy to take the tram back after a day/night of drinking. We were there is March so we were the only people in the place. In the summer months I can this place being a happening place, but for... More

At 8pm it was going dark: the guide said get off at Cerny Ceun and head toward the river. I got to the hostel and Vera said: you must be David. (I'd called earlier) I had called earlier.... it was in 1995. Breakfasts are spot on and cheap: dinners are great and the beer is cheap as chips!

If you're rushing through Prague you'll want to be closer to the town center. This is an excellent hostel for those with time to enjoy the beautiful river setting, next to a golf course and a very popular roller blading pathway. The rooms and bathroom are immaculate, breakfast was good and the ladies are happy to make you meals (which... More

The Boathouse is great; we were there with high school students. Everybody was suprised about the cleanliness of the bathrooms, really great. Breakfast was good and Vera and Helena are the best, they took great care of one of our students who was ill during the week. Thanks a lot, and I'm hoping to stay there next year!

We picked this hostel because of it's reviews and the parking available. The spot is fine, next to a golfcourse and near the water. You can rent kayaks there. The staff is great. They are very helpful and friendly. The prices are inclusive of breakfast. You can have dinner there each night. You put your name on a list and... More

SUPER! friendly family-like atmosphere. Helena and her staff do everything to make life simple and your trip great. The place is spotless, beds comfortable and dorm-like bathing facilities totally private and extremely clean. The food is plentiful and tasty. Dinners are offered but must be reserved in the morning. They are plain, local cooking but plentiful. The common/dining room does... More

The Boathouse is run by the most fantastic group of ladies! They are so nice and make you feel at home. They have a little kitchen where they cook breakfast extras (eggs, etc) and dinner for an extremely reasonable price. The only downside is its a 15 min tram ride into town, but it goes by quickly and its really... More

The only downside to this hostel is the distance to the old centre which is about a 15 minute tram ride. Now if you prefer something a bit away from the city centre, I absolutely recommend this little gem. It's located along a river bank where you can kayak, bike, row, etc. I've stayed in enough hostels and could say... More

This is all you need to know about the place: My friend and I were 5 hours late for check-in (we missed our flight and had to catch a later one) and when we finally arrived at the hostel after walking through the cold and dark, we opened the front door, walked in, and one of the ladies peeked out...
