We had the apartment for 2 nites. Parking about 10 feet from door. Spotless. Well equiped kitchen. Good bed. Good, fast WiFi. Excellent resturant suggestions. Only problem was that we could only stay 2 nights. Next time will do at least a week.

We requested a private room with WC, but when we arrived we were given the apartment at the same price. This was due to a large group of students occupying most of the hostel. As we are 60 somethings, it was very considerate. The management couldn't have been more accomodating. The location is great, just a short walk to the town center. We really enjoyed our stay.

We stayed at Krumlov House for one night with our 10yo upstairs in a private room with shared toilet with one other room upstairs. The shower was downstairs and shared by all. The room was clean, the staff were polite. Short walk to town. Was fine for a one night stay

Hi there,

Thanks for your nice comments. We hope that next time you stay in Cesky Krumlov you'll try one of our spacious apartments with ensuite bath and kitchenette for only 10 EUR more. I think that would have been more comfortable for you and your family, and you would have gone from staying one night to perhaps three :)

All best,

Carolyn, Krumlov House

We had the double room upstairs for one night. Bathroom was shared with the other upstairs room, and there were shared (very basic) showers downstairs. Towels are available. The room was very clean and comfortable. There is a kitchen downstairs and also a living room with books and travel guides. Carolyn (at the reception) was very helpful, gave us a map and took the time to sit with us and recommend places and restaurants. There was a festival on at the time, and she gave us some tips to catch the costume parade and local crafts market. Carolyn also offered to set up appointments with the masseuse but the masseuse was not reachable for some reason. Excellent location. Cesky Krumlov is quite small and you can easily walk everywhere from the hostel. Easy to find--can't miss the dragon door. Overall--a perfect budget stay in Cesky Krumlov. Wouldn't stay for more than a night though because of the shared bathrooms and showers.

Hi there,

Thanks for your lovely comments. If you're not so keen on budget sharing of bathrooms etc, we hope that you'll book our private rooms with WC and showers next time :)

Happy trails!

Carolyn, Krumlov House

This place makes you feel like you're in a comfy house rather than in a hostel. Everything is made of wood. The only thing I would change it's that to take a shower you just have to keep hitting the bottom every minute.
It's 5 minutes walking to the student agency bus stop.
