It does what it says on the tin. It is a roof over your head with the basic essentials (beds, showers). Staff are indifferent and their English is broken. However if something goes wrong you can't rely on the staff which is a bit of a hassle. All in all if you are there for a short stay it's okay,... More

If you're looking for a cheap hostel at the perfect location, this is definitely your match. For the other parts, not so much.. We weren't very thrilled with our room, which smelled horrible. Also we've paid for a locker which happened to be a closet which you could break up at the back. The staff was friendly, but if you're... More

Great location and very kind staff. If we consider that hostel is just 1 minute walking from Wenceslav Square, prices are excelent. Ideal place for students or for groups of young people, but I recommend to everyone. Everything is close from this place, Wenceslav Square, National muzeum, Charles Bridge, Old Town Square with astronomical clock and many other interesting places... More

Recommended! Hostel is located in the city center. Every time we stay there. The rooms are very modest. Ideal for students. Everything is in the old communist style. Very close is a grocery store. The service is very friendly and speak foregin languages.

Quick Pros: At 20 euros a night for a twin room this is great value and if you have a large group you could potentially end up staying in a shared room for aroun 8-10 euros a night which is not to be shirked at for European travel. Secondly, the location is excellent - a five minute walk from the... More

The hotel is very dirty and our room smelled like someone had a piss in it! The location is good and that's about it. The room had no curtains so every morning the sun would come blaring in and wake us up. The bathrooms and toilets where pretty dirty. We basically did our best not to be there to was... More

It was my third time in this hostel, and I was always satisfied. 5 minute walk from the main traistation, walking distance to most of the Pragues sightseeings. Lot of bars and clubs around is also advantage. Friendly stuff and atmosphere. Great location, cheap price, clean rooms, free wi-fi and free tea in the kitchen , I think its what... More

Good points: Location + price. but for the cheap price, you get a real low quality accomodation. The hosstel is full of long term residents, like dealers, people who sell you the crap on the streets, some mentally unstable characters and the long term unemployed. It's one step away from being a homeless shelter. I think this is a shame... More

The bathrooms were clean. When I woke up after the first night I had 40+ bed bug bites. Expect drug dealers to hang out in the common area. The receptionists were hit and miss, some were good, others would ignore you until they finished checking their email. Not worth it, never again.
