Hostel Skippy
Reviewed September 30, 2010

Hostel Skippy is really a private house which is run by a friendly hippy woman. She is very welcoming and tries to help you out with things to do and restaurants to go to.

The inside of the hostel is pretty much made out of wood, and cozy-decorated, you do feel like at home. The room we stayed in was for 4 people (there are only 3 rooms: 12 people max) and the beds were comfortable, however the room itself had a lof of dust. The main problem is the bathroom which is always busy in the morning and pretty dirty after 5 people have used it. There is another toilet downstairs, however... Another bad thing about the hostel is that the owner keeps 2 dogs inside and it SMELLS a bit.

The really cool part is that it has a cute terrace outside overlooking the river and you can take great pictures from there. Also it's not in the center of the town, in a peaceful neighborhood, so you don't get waken up by loud tourists!

I stayed here while backpacking across Europe back in the summer of 2002. Cesky Krumlov is a quaint little city (and a UN World Heritage site), and staying at Skippy's was one of the most memorable experiences of my tour. It's a little house with a fantastic deck off the kitchen, right next to the Vltava river. The hostel was filled to capacity, but Skippy was so welcoming, offering me a place to sleep on the floor (which was fine with me, since all the beds were taken). There are private rooms as well though--but I'd recommend reserving in advance if it's high season (summer). That evening Skippy took us all out to a local cafe, where she played guitar and everyone sang along to traditional Czech songs. It was such a great evening--I remember Skippy as being genuinely warm and full of joy.

All these years later I still have that wonderful memory. Best wishes to Skippy--if you're young and need a place to crash in Cesky Krumlov, I'd definitely recommend staying at Skippy's.

Skippy is an awesome hostel, very unique and homely, small and not exactly a party place but if your looking for somewhere very chilled and clean this is perfect. The owner was awesome, will help with everything and has all facilities you could need (minus internet which is available in town). Would highly recommend this place to anyone.

This place was awesome! We spent our trip looking for places that would feel unique and this was definately one of them. Theres a terrace along the river and super friendly and helpful staff. We stayed much longer than we'd anticipated and we will definately go back. Its clean and comfy and the owner makes everyone feel like her special guests. You will love it. I highly recommend it. It's cheap and you can use the kitchen for cooking which is also nice if you're on a budget. But don't let the low price fool you... it's paradise, really. Pass the word on!
