Reviewed May 12, 2013

We booked a private double room at this hostel with 2 months in advance for 4 nights. We had no problems at all our first night, we arrived late and we got our keys at the gatehouse as promised. We spent the next day visiting Prague and when we came back to our room: surprise!! Our luggage was not there!! We went to reception as quickly as we could to get an explanation. We were told that we had been reallocated to another room with two more people. We were flipping out. They told us we were going to get a huge discount. We rejected the offer, but we had no choice, there was not any other available room at the hostel.
We could not believe our eyes. My boyfriend and I live in different countries and we only see each other once a month so we wanted a bit of privacy, as you can imagine. We spent the whole night looking for another place to stay because we did not want to spend a single more minute in that hostel.Therefore, we spend the whole night looking for another play to stay instead of enjoying this amazing city. Fortunately, we found another place (not too expensive) to stay and we left. By the way, when we got into our "new" room to get our luggage before leaving, we had a chat with the other couple there. Guess what? Yes, you are right, they had exactly the same problem as us.
So, if you really want to enjoy your time in this wonderful city, you should not book a room in this place, they are not trustworthy. We had this problem with the room but you might find yourself without a place to stay.

Some people look for hostels where they can party and meet people. This hostel is not exactly appropriate for that.
It's a small hostel with a little but complete kitchen. Staff is ok and there's wifi.
Beds are clean, comfortable and the ample lockers are a plus.
Bathrooms were in common areas, but I found that to be better, as you would always find one available, you're not limited to the one in your room. And since it's a small place you just walk 4 more steps and you find another bathroom.
Of course you'll meet your roommates, but other than that you won't find much space to interact with the rest of the travelers.
Location is great, took me a while to find it as there was no street sign, but it's about 5 mins to Old Town and about 5 mins from the central train station.
Prices were good.
If you're only looking for a quiet, central and safe place to stay, don't doubt it, this is the place.

The hostel was clean, comfortable and had a kitchen and dining area which many hostels throughout Europe lacked. The staff were excellent: If there is one thing a traveler does not want to lose it's their camera. This was the case when we stayed here. However the staff were kind enough to send it back to the UK for us. Thank you so much Hostel Miles!

We arrived at the hostel from an overnight train at 8am thinking we would see an envelope with out name and keys in it like the website said they would if we arrived before the reception opened. There was no keys and no person at the reception. Thats fine we sat on the floor of the reception to wait. When the guy arrived later he wasn't enthusiastic or even happy. He was like here is you room and keys and half tossed half just push the keys in our vague direction. when he did the tour of the hostel it was the same monotone, not caring walk and talk. We didn't feel like we could ask him anything about the place or city.
On a happier note the bed were warm and comfy and the hostel is about a 5-10min walk from old town and about 15-20 min from charles bridge. That's the best thing about this hostel is the location and why it got 4/5. The Kitchen is very small but just functional. Also security is good with under bed lockers big enough to fit your rucksack and day pack. It was also very clean and warm.

I spent 5 nights at the hostel miles.
Very clean,nice mood and great position ( 10min walk to the main square and 20min walk to Charles bridge ).
Arriving from airport is easy,just take the 119 bus from the airport to the final stop,then take the tube and in 4 stops you are 50meters far from the hostel.
The building is a clean and a new one.
The staff is amazing and helpful.

Simply great!
