This was the greatest weekend I had in Europe during my entire study abroad in Fall 2015. I recommend going to the front desk and asking to go to the gun range. Also, a cheap can can get you to anyplace you need to go in the city or you can walk. Overall, this hostel is cheap and has cheap... More

A very friendly hostel located near the Central Bus Station and the tram station. Clean facilities with very good spread of free buffet breakfast. The hotel staff is very helpful and cordial. They have events & offers for each day of the week.

First of all, I have to say it, the staff is great. They helped us a lot when we had problems with our car and had to take it to a service. Also, with orientation in the city, vouchers for free drinks at parties and basically any request we had. Very creative place, loved the paintings on the doors and... More

Came here with a couple of friends and we really enjoyed our stay. Decent rooms - nothing special but it's got a nice vibe. Nice communal kitchen and free breakfast and coffee - can't really ask for more. Slight walk into town but not actually that bad. Fab pizza place just down the road as well which is well worth...

Okay, so this place is extremely cheap, so it’s hard to complain, but I will say that it is a bit far from the center of Prague, enough that warranted bus rides. Each bed did not have its own light and outlet which was a bit frustrating but there were plenty of outlets in the room. Each room is big... More

We had a great time hanging out with other young backpackers here. If you are older and looking for a quiet, clean, professional, place to stay then look elsewhere. On the other hand if you are looking to party and meet other young travelers this is the place to go! Great sense of community and the staff were awesome. It... More

I read some crap reviews before I went, but decided to go anyway, I am so glad I did. Anja (I think her name was) helped me with my bag to my room. I then had a nap and the night shift receptionist was there - Hunza. What. A. Legend. Like, genuinely the coolest guy I ever met. One of... More

We stayed at the Hostel in a private double room for a few nights in September 2015. The private double room was clean and comfortable. The staff where friendly, and the location is pretty good. There is a bus stop right outside the hostel which goes to the centre of town. The hostel was great value, and also served breakfast... More
