“Awful hostel”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

interior is extremely dated, its like walking into an old person's home in the 80s. My room was dirty, had to make my own bed. the window was broken, and when i complained and asked to be either refunded for just one night, i was told that i had to wait til morning to talk to the owner about it because no one else could refund us, but that the owner spoke no english so there was no point and therefore no one could deal with it. appalling! when i asked to be moved to another room, i was told it was impossible because then they would have to move everyone else. the room was also in the smoking area/main entrance, and had sugar paper for curtains. so everyone out for a smoke peered into my room and sat on my window ledge, meaning i couldnt get changed in my own room and the smoke drifted in. disgusting. the room was freezing because of the broken window, and loud. the wifi worked, warm showers, only good quality.

Basic, clean and close to the centre.
This is a perfect summary of this hostel, if you're just looking for a bed and somewhere to store your stuff then this is place. It's a 5 min walk to the centre of Prague. Friendly staff who clean everyday.
Would stay here again!

Clean hostel with a good location, near a metro station/various tram lines or within walking distance of the centre. Large lockers, comfy beds and secure rooms. Staff were friendly and the common room was spacious with free internet and an area to prepare/store your own food.

Clean, close to the centre, helpful staff. Worth being recommended!You don't have to use any means of transport when you want to visit the centre of the city. Three shops with food are at the distance of 100 metres.

My mates and i stayed a few days over the weekend and totally enjoyed it. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Rooms were quite comfortable and clean, living room extremely spacious equipped with free internet access, tv, games, comfy coaches and a little kitchen corner at your disposals anytime during the day. The shared bathrooms fine too, even though i reckon it would be about time to replace the shower curtains, which were a bit smelly and yellowy. No curfew so feel free to come and go as u please! In few words a GREAT VALUE FOR THE MONEY! it won't let u down!!

This place offers good value, central location, good rooms, helpful staff. I would definitely go there again.

That said, the bunk beds and mattresses, while rather new, were a bit creaky, which can be a problem in a 6-bed room.

It's a communist era building, the common room has a bit of a bunker feel to it. I didn't mind that.

A couple of suggestions to the owners to improve the place:

The bathrooms should have something for people to put their clothes and stuff while showering. Also, the bunk beds should have a shelve or something so you can put down glasses, phone and whatnot.

We stayed in a 5 beds private with shared bathroom and we totally loved it! Very clean and comfortable, a lot of space and very central! Nice kitchen with all the utilities you may need for fast cooking and a clean bathroom with bathtub. I will come back for sure!
