“I would come back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Excellent location: close to everything, transports, bar, supermarket nearby;
nice staff;
clean and quiet;
Beds could be improved, and towels be larger but it's still worth the price and I would definitly come back.

Not luxury, but clean and functional.
The location is perfect, as it is within walking distance from center, and it is also close to highway, tram, metro.

- very uncomfortable beds that actually aren't beds at all--more like a large ottoman
- very friendly staff
- very depressing room/hallways, but spacious
- 1 bathroom for every 2 rooms
- no elevator
- situated in an apartment building on the top floor
- good location, about 15-20 min walking to the center
- pretty clean but bad ambiance

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2008

Hostel is a very good choice if travellers looking for a cheap local to all the sights, links to other attractions close by, within walking distance of main attractions.

Very basic. We stayed in a twin room, but merged the beds together. The power shower was great, more like a jet wash.

Internet as free, staff were reasonably friendly and spoke good English. Would stay again if on a tight budget.

Good location, very close to city transport links. Easy walking distance to main attractions. Great authentic Czech restaurant/micro-brewery a couple of doors down which was a highlight of our time in Prague. Free internet was a major bonus. Nice staff, very clean bathrooms.
