I stayed here because the price was right and, overall, it wasn't terrible. The staff seemed overly concerned with whether or not I was going to pay for things. They were willing to give me a metro ticket and map when they didn't have enough change, but told me four times the amount I would owe upon my return; when I did get back, I was immediately reminded that I owed the money (which amounted to about $5 U.S.) and was not offered my key until I did so. Even given a less service-oriented culture, some of the staff were overly rude. I was shoved (literally) out of the way of the coffee machine (which dispensed AWFUL AWFUL coffee which was mostly water) when I failed to operate it properly. Located in the sixth district, it took me about 15 minutes to get to the first - three tram stops, three metro stops. It was nice to stay in a more residential neighborhood, but besides the bar adjacent to the hostel, there is nothing within walking distance (i.e. a convenience store, etc.) and while the hostel has for sale a few food items (crisps/biscuits) and water/beer, it lacks a kitchen area and is for the most part less "homey" than many hostels, despite its residential location. Don't expect much from the staff in terms of getting advice/directions, but the rooms/facilities are reasonably clean and comfortable. I stayed downstairs/garden level/basement and could not access the wifi at all from my room. I was offered an "upgrade" to en suite facilities for about $15 U.S./night; the prefab shower/toilet room was less an than arms' width wide and I ended up soaking the entire "room" each time I tried to shower. All told, probably not worth the extra money. The stay wasn't all bad; the neighborhood is quiet and the publc transport in Prague is so efficient that it's really no bother to get around (beware of the STEEP three block hill to get to the tram though). For the price, it made sense to stay here.
