Notice how all the good reviewers have only made one review. Friends of owners. To be fair the husband and wife owners were very nice to me. At first I didn't understand the bad reviews. Then I stayed awhile. Do not come here if you are arriving before 3pm or after 10:30pm. No reception. No where to put your stuff. Even if you tell them you are arriving, they aren't there. Then if you complain when you come back to check in, they won't let you stay and they will charge you anyway. The price listed on your booking receipt is lower than the price charged. They charge a one time 45K (I think) charge for linen (even if you have our own) and they charge 21 Koruna a person per night for "city tax". Neither charge listed on any of the booking sights. So if you are staying only one night, the price is much higher. No lockers in the rooms so stuff gets stolen from locked backpacks. If they cared about their guest at all, there would be lockers. They say they have a safe in the reception but that room is tiny and you can't fit a laptop in there. Only two bathrooms so you were always doing the pee dance in the morning cause someone was taking showers. Showers don't drain so they are filthy. I was just told by someone that one is now broken. I only saw cleaners every two days. However outside of the showers, the hostel is pretty clean. If you are a guy with dreds, don't stay there. The two times I saw incidents, it was with guys with dred locks. From my viewpoint, it was the fault of the male owner. One guy was let in the hostel in the morning by another backpacker and was sitting there on the couch all day waiting for reception. The owner came a few hours later and started yelling at the guy for being there. In 10 years of backpacking, I have never seen a place that wouldn't let you hang out or leave your bags before check in. If you go on other sights, all the bad reviews are answered by him and he doesn't take criticism well. But if you are a pretty young girl...you are golden. Five different girls said that he touched their knees/shoulders and it freaked them out. Good news, free wi-fi works well all the time, nice tv, hot water showers, five minute walk from the bus station, 15 to old town and free normal hostel breakfast. Free coffee/tea all day. My advice, stay somewhere else. Hopefully they will care enough to put lockers in the rooms, have reception open so you can drop off your bags and stop hitting up on the girls. The place is too small for another bathroom but they could take out a bunk bed in each room to add lockers. Too many people for only two bathrooms anyway. They say someone is there all night but if so, they are locked in reception and no one knows they are there. Oh one dorm room had two fold up cots as beds. I do feel bad as the owners were very nice to me but I saw too many things that I must give the worst review I have ever given on any sight. They need to stop arguing with bad reviews and make changes. I've actually changed my screen name so they won't recognize me and charge my card more as retribution. Yes, I heard from a backpacker two days ago that there were charges on his card after he checked out that were not supposed to be there. Guys, please take the reviews seriously and make changes. I hate giving bad reviews.
