“If you want a Hotel...Pay for a Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2006

If you want to stay in a hotel, then STAY IN A HOTEL. This place gives all the basic amenities and comfy beds for a very good price. After reading the previous reviews i was terrified of what was waiting for me in Prague but the place provided pretty much everything we could need. Those with very high standards should consider paying for a hotel and remember the nature of hostels.

Bad points:
*A little Dirty
*Odd Staff who can be quite hard to understand (met the rude woman all the other reviews went on about... only once though...thank god!)

Good Points:
*Fab Location
*Great Value for Money
*Secure
*Extra amenities (internet, reception etc)

All in all this place is a no-nonsense-no-frills hostel but at the end of the day, thats all you pay for.

This hostel compares with a run down Motel 6. If I were 20 again, I probably would find it acceptable. Our reservation was misplaced, and we were given a room half the size promised, yet despite efforts to negotiate a reduction in price, we were left with a "take it or leave it" shrug of the shoulders. All the lobby clerks chained smoked, so tempting as it was to use the computer, I could only take 5 minutes at a time. The apartment was a poorly furnished and cramped dorm room. What was described as a kitchen amounted to a hotplate on a countertop. There were no tables, so we ate on our beds. Starting at 8:30 a.m., and ending at 4:30, a jackhammer from a nearby renovation blasted. I'm sure that you can do better in Prague...even if you're a backpacking student.

We reserved for the night of May 17, 2006 what was described in Le Papillon's email correspondence as a "double apartment with private bathroom and kitchenette". This turned out to be only a very small room where there was insufficient floor space to have 2 persons open their suitcases at the same time. It would be more appropriate and less misleading for Le Papillon management to describe the accommodations as a double room. I would give the overall appearance of this room a C-.
