“The most beautiful hostel in the most charming town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Myself, my wife and some friends stayed in the Lazy River Hostel over this last weekend and to say it is outstanding would be to underrate how wonderful this place is. The hostel is located in the gorgeous town of Loket which, like Cesky Krumlov, is an old town perched on a meander in the river however is much more peaceful & surrounded by stunning woods and hills.
The hostel is run by the very kind Petr and Eva (with their small boy Jonas) who will always do everything in their power to make your stay more enjoyable - be it recommending places to go, helping to buy food or showing you around the town. Lazy River is in an old building which is furnished beautifully and tastefully with plenty of comfy spots where you sit and admire the wonderful views of this old town out of the windows during your stay. This is a place to visit anytime of year and is a perfect place to relax or wind down, take walks, get to know friendly locals over a beer or be creative.
If you are visiting Czech Republic, you should take a couple of days to visit this hidden gem.

Lazy River Hostel is amazing! Located just beneath the medieval castle in the beautiful town of Loket, its natural surroundings are stunning and there are plenty of opportunities for hiking and other outdoor activities. The hostel has a cosy, relaxed atmosphere, and the owners are the best- they really made us feel at home. Definitely worth a visit!

What an awesome place! If I could give it 100 out of 5 I would!
I have just got back from spending a weekend at the Lazy River Hostel with my friends, we hired the whole hostel. The hostel itself is lovely and homely with everything you need, a surprisingly good selection of books, and a very conveniently located ice cream shop round the corner .
Our hosts were fantastic; very welcoming, kind and friendly people who went out of their way to accommodate us and make our stay perfect.
Loket as a place is also great. Its an adorable little town with fantastic nature, beer gardens and a castle.
We all really enjoyed our stay and I personally would love to go back there again for a weekend.

Loket is an absolutely gorgeous place of retreat, full of beautiful nature and fairytale like atmosphere! The Lazy River hostel is perfectly situated, right at the bottom of the castle hill, where you can enjoy local music and entertainment in a unique setting. The hostel itself is clean and well equipped with comfortable beds, a beautiful kitchen and patio and even an attic where you can gather to play music with your hosts. Outgoing and with the best dispositions, Eva and Petr will make your stay cozy and friendly. They are truly warm people who enjoy interacting and help you explore the town and its stunning surrounding. An absolute wonder! :)
