I enjoyed my stay a lot here. I got a little early than I had expected but then the staff was helpful explaining the situations. Property is very well maintained and super clean. Rooms are cozy and has warm atmosphere and also the bathrooms were clean and everything worked well. You do not need to really care about the location... More

The good: location- right in the middle of town. price- one of the cheapest places to stay in Cesky Krumlov. New beds- they were putting new mattresses in while we were there. The bad: Wifi- not reliable and out at night, if you are trying to book your next bus or destination it can be frustrating. Staff- I don't know... More

Stayed in June for one night in a twin private double room. Receptionist was unfriendly and did not smile. Room was tiny, two small beds, and no room to walk between them. Beds were terribly uncomfortable. Noisy from road as well as a lot of late night noise (midnight) from a group of drunk patrons that didn't quieten down despite... More

Nice hostel with cozy small rooms, clean kitchen and bathrooms. No problem with communication. Beds are quite large nut not very comfortable. We had a room for two and the view from window was very nice, location is near the center of the town.

We arrived with nobody manning the reception, and had to get assistance from a store opposite the hostel to call the number at the door - this is despite already having provided the hostel with our time of arrival in our earlier email correspondences when the reservation was made. We got a double room, which was very basic and homely,... More

Cesky Krumlov is an amazing place to stay. Avoid Hostel Merlin though. If you book in advance you are directed to the owner, herself and it is a hell. Everything is a problem, you annoy her a lot because she is very busy. Unbelievably unprofessional and anti-client approach. Never ever. We went to the place last summer (2015) too and... More

Reasonably priced hotel in Cesky Krumlov. The rooms were simple, but had a rustic charm. Though I had an overall positive stay, there were a few strange aspects. The hotel seemed, on the whole, very disorganized. The receptionist did not smile or say a word in the entire checkin process. She also couldn't make change (and I believe you can... More

We stayed here with 4 persons for New Years 2012 (not April 2015) Nice small rooms with bathroom. Also a kitchen for all guests. Maybe you dont know...Quentin Tarantino's movie HOSTEL was filmed here. You can see the Bridge/Castle in the movie, also the Torture Museum and a few alleys.

The good: hostel is very cheap and in a good location. Clean. The bad: Water pressure is slim to nothing. The beds and sheets are not comfortable and need to be replaced. Also there are no fans or AC in the rooms so you have to keep the window open to not burn up however it's incredibly noisy outside most... More

Excpetional value for money in this hostel in central Česky Krumlov, where a single room costs as little as 265 kč. The girl at the reception was very nice and the hostel is clean and furnished with all the essentials (apart from a fridge). The bathrooms were two per floor, which means you always find one free, although the shower... More
