“One of the worst”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2009

I stayed at Archies Hostel for 1 week the end of July. Bathrooms were nasty most of the time, there is no one there unless someone is checking in and then the place is pretty much abandoned. If you run out of toilet paper or need something, tough luck. I stayed in the 6 mixed dorm with just enough room to move- very crowded. The internet was not working because the owner didn't pay the bill (this came directly from the owners mouth). This is not near the center of anything, though a tram station is about 15 minutes away. The area is quiet, but with "No Rules", and left to everyones own thing, the hostel itself is not quiet.

I absolutely cannot recommend this place. New personnel are nice, but as they said, they are not paid to be there often and cleaning suffers, as well as guest needs.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2007

I just returned from a five week tour of Europe, and the Archie Hostel was one of my favorites of the dozen or so hostels I stayed at. The staff were the friendliest and most helpful I encountered during my entire trip. It is not in a "touristy" area, but is within walking distance to tourist sites. It is also really close to the public transportation system, which is excellent in Prague. It was clean and had a homey, comfortable feeling. It was also the only place I stayed at that had free laundry (although no clothes dryer, only a rack). I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to others.

  • Liked — The helpful staff
  • Disliked — It is a basic hostel, so the beds weren't the most comfortable.
