“Good experience - More of a small, basic hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

I stayed here with my girlfriend who had never been to a hostel. We looked for a clean place with a good location and this definitely fit the bill. We had a private which was extremely spacious (if it was dorm style could have fit 6-8). The bed was pretty comfy and overall the room was nice.

Robert and the other guy (sorry forgot his name) were not the "best buddy" hostel mangers you may be used to that go out of their way to tell you about all of the surroundings, tours, etc but they also are not trying to sell you on everywhere they get a kick back. This is nothing against them at all - just relaying facts - they were both courteous and professional.

The hostel is far from a party hostel. No bar, small common area, rooms are spread out. However, the location is to die for, the rooms are clean and comfy, and the price is fair.

I tend to rate on a relative scale of price and description. I think we paid a very fair price for the room, were safe and secure, and in a great location. While it didnt have all of the amentities it also was very clear about that going in, so it met my expectations and made for a very good Prague trip - thus it gets a 4.

Room Tip: If you can, choose a private room. While you dont get a private bath a few extra bucks is worth peac...

I booked female dorm. There are 7 beds in the room, 6 were occupied! But, at 1am, hostel checked-in a male traveller to the room!

Male staff can come in and out our female room as he like, no giving signal. It was between 9pm and 11pm, many times. Male staff came in female dorm, moving cabinet, making noise, where I was already on bed.

My room is just next to 'living room', people keep talking and laughing till midnight, terrible noise!

Room's door is terrible, difficult to open and close. Everytime making noise. Whoever would like to go toilet, we will be awaken in the night... because bathroom and toilet are outside the bedroom.

Bath room is big, but now map on the floor, but hostel expect 'dry floor' after used. Please tell me, how can we have dry foot from bath tub?

Unfortunately I can't write good review for this hostel. I had booked double room with 2 months in advance via hostelsbookers.com for 1-4 may 2013, one week before our arrival to this hostel I wrote a message to manager Rob, of there is a chance to do the check-in earlier. He didn't say a word about problems with double room. When we came to the hostel we found out, that there is NO room for us. Manager's explanation was that "s**t happens"! He gave us an ultimatum. We can stay there in 4 beds room with a discount, and we have to be 'satisfied' or we can just go away! We were there for short period of time, and we didn't want to loose our time in Prague for looking for another hostel so we had to stay there. Only one good thing in this hostel was localisation, and cleanliness. I think that another customers must be informed and caution about situations as our. In the same time came another couple and had similar situation :(

Dear guests,

thank you for your nice and honest review at tripadvisor

maybe you forgot to remain that you paid for whole stay, for 4 nights in Prague only 40EUR,
and maybe you forgot that we had kind of "agreement" that both sides are "ok" with that deal ?

I'm still very sorry that we did not full fill your expectation and we did not had a double room for you and that's what happens,
but I tried to make thing better by offered you to pay as much you want ... instead of 130 EUR

best
Robert

We booked a private double room at this hostel with 2 months in advance for 4 nights. We had no problems at all our first night, we arrived late and we got our keys at the gatehouse as promised. We spent the next day visiting Prague and when we came back to our room: surprise!! Our luggage was not there!! We went to reception as quickly as we could to get an explanation. We were told that we had been reallocated to another room with two more people. We were flipping out. They told us we were going to get a huge discount. We rejected the offer, but we had no choice, there was not any other available room at the hostel.
We could not believe our eyes. My boyfriend and I live in different countries and we only see each other once a month so we wanted a bit of privacy, as you can imagine. We spent the whole night looking for another place to stay because we did not want to spend a single more minute in that hostel.Therefore, we spend the whole night looking for another play to stay instead of enjoying this amazing city. Fortunately, we found another place (not too expensive) to stay and we left. By the way, when we got into our "new" room to get our luggage before leaving, we had a chat with the other couple there. Guess what? Yes, you are right, they had exactly the same problem as us.
So, if you really want to enjoy your time in this wonderful city, you should not book a room in this place, they are not trustworthy. We had this problem with the room but you might find yourself without a place to stay.

Some people look for hostels where they can party and meet people. This hostel is not exactly appropriate for that.
It's a small hostel with a little but complete kitchen. Staff is ok and there's wifi.
Beds are clean, comfortable and the ample lockers are a plus.
Bathrooms were in common areas, but I found that to be better, as you would always find one available, you're not limited to the one in your room. And since it's a small place you just walk 4 more steps and you find another bathroom.
Of course you'll meet your roommates, but other than that you won't find much space to interact with the rest of the travelers.
Location is great, took me a while to find it as there was no street sign, but it's about 5 mins to Old Town and about 5 mins from the central train station.
Prices were good.
If you're only looking for a quiet, central and safe place to stay, don't doubt it, this is the place.

The hostel was clean, comfortable and had a kitchen and dining area which many hostels throughout Europe lacked. The staff were excellent: If there is one thing a traveler does not want to lose it's their camera. This was the case when we stayed here. However the staff were kind enough to send it back to the UK for us. Thank you so much Hostel Miles!

We arrived at the hostel from an overnight train at 8am thinking we would see an envelope with out name and keys in it like the website said they would if we arrived before the reception opened. There was no keys and no person at the reception. Thats fine we sat on the floor of the reception to wait. When the guy arrived later he wasn't enthusiastic or even happy. He was like here is you room and keys and half tossed half just push the keys in our vague direction. when he did the tour of the hostel it was the same monotone, not caring walk and talk. We didn't feel like we could ask him anything about the place or city.
On a happier note the bed were warm and comfy and the hostel is about a 5-10min walk from old town and about 15-20 min from charles bridge. That's the best thing about this hostel is the location and why it got 4/5. The Kitchen is very small but just functional. Also security is good with under bed lockers big enough to fit your rucksack and day pack. It was also very clean and warm.
