The rooms are okay, beds comforrtable but the noise during the weekend was very loud. The most disgusting tuhing I have ever smelt is the shower and there was no water at all...we switched our hotel afterwords. I would not recommend it if you stay with a bigger group here.

An institute for the destitute The worst place around. I dont normally leave reviews but i felt this place to be an exception and felt i must provide people with a real insight. The first thing to mention is the poor facilities, the showers were ice cold with terrible water pressure that near enough dripped from the shower head, in addition to this the shower curtains provided were only long enough to cover half a cubicle! Boxed toilets filled with human waste, grot and other filth. The sleeping arrangements were dire to say the least. Incredibly creaky bunks and matresses that felt more like a crash mat than a bed. All that aside, the worst is yet to come! Upon returning to the hostel at around 11pm we were greated by an enraged barman who hurled abuse at us all in the street, verbal abuse to such a degree i had never encountered before. This was highly embarrasing and was the result of a simple queiry at the reception that morning to which the staff there were pleasant. We were pushed aside by the enraged barman who screamed ‘F*** You’ continuously as he stormed past! We then carried on and our stay became more unpleasent by the day. One awful night we attended the bar for a beer as the barman had apologised for his outburst of inexhaustable rage. Whilst enjoying a beer there were homeless and destitute people all around. One of which was sick right behind us and then proceeded to pass out! This was nothing unusual it seems as nobody reacted. Later we discovered that there was truth to this as the night after we went for a drink before bed and the same homeless man was there once again in the same seat and once again he threw up all over himself a second time. The barman, mentioned previously, simply walked right past this and didnt’ clean it up! I would recommend a tent in an alley before this hostel!

The room was clear. good service. Water was hot. Not too far from the train station or the city. Only issue was the broken kettle in our room that kept sparking all the time. Other than that was a very decent experience staying here. I made a load of new friends while there!

Three friends and I booked a four bed room for two nights. Being young etc. we were looking for accommodations both on the cheeper side but still in a good local - the hostel was both. The staff was wonderfully helpful and the both the room, the community bathroom, and the kitchen clean.

The hostel is in a very good location. We could get everywhere we wanted by walking during our visit. It was also very clean and the price was good. We really enjoyed our stay here and would absolutely recommend it.

I stayed there for two nights and it was amazing place to stay. Clean and comfortable flat with shower and seperate toilet. You can use other devices in the flat like fridge, microwave, hairdrier, iron or kettle. This flat is ussually used by travelers (M/F) and they are amazing people.

Walking distance to all attractions. Reception not managed 24/7 however your living in converted apartments which has there own door accessible via key. You feel pretty secure which is great. Before the renovations I was told it was a good hostel to meet people, unfortunately this is not really the case anymore. Kitchen is well equipped but with no label system on food there are items taking up space in the fridge that belong to past guest. Cleaning was okay - they need to have bins in the kitchen that are fully covered as it attracted a lot of flies. Also they did not clean the shelve next to the beds. Bathroom and toilet was fine.

I was travelling solo for two nights and a day in Prague a few days ago. I saw this on TripAdvisor and Hostel World, looked at the reviews and prices, and decided this was a good idea. Pros: about a 15-20 minute walk to city center, right by a tram, 5 min from their metro station. maps and other travel ideas are available at the reception kitchen area/bathrooms/sleeping quarters are clean and open wifi is fantastic plugs are right by the walls offer towels for a small fee, but other amenities are free reception speaks English and are friendly provided sheets/blanket/pillow were great provide a key to lock your locker, for the doors, for the door on the street leading to your rooms if you're young, like a little randomness, don't mind noise, you're good! water in the reception quite a few bathrooms CLEAN kitchen is amazingly equipped discount offered at the bar next door to it - close to a local Starbucks/Costa, book shop, and souvenir shop cons: right by the tram - can be loud if facing the street (and I don't think that can be avoided odd location - but once you see their sign (it's also described on their website) you're good to go no "quiet hours" - there's a sign, but it's NOT enforced - you will not sleep well if you are in a room with people who aren't considerate/do not realize it's literally midnight and you're tired if you are not under 30, I do not recommend staying here For the price, this was an excellent place to stay. I'm not sure what some people were expecting, but this is a hostel, in Prague, for an inexpensive stay. I would recommend bringing ear plugs and a sleeping mask, shower shoes obviously, but for what its worth, I liked staying here!

The room was excellent - basically an old flat with each room a dorm of beds and the best equipped kitchen I have ever seen in a hostel. Warm, clean, relaxing, I slept really well despite the tram line right outside! Really no complaints about the room. Rest of hostel was a let down however. Basically a building site, reception through an unmarked door, chill out area tiny, common loos appalling, ancient, dirty and cold, onsite bar uninspiring and full of creepy old local guys.
