“Very Very Average”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

This hostel, whilst new is incredibly noisy. You can hear every single door open and close. you can hear people entering the pin code for the front door from our bedroom on the third floor.

The advertisement of free breakfast is pointless. Its a bowl of cereal with warm milk.

Its not one of the party hostels, but there is still zero atmosphere. we were there when it was at capacity and there was still next to nothing. it may have something to do with the common being the size of a broom cupboard and it's in the basement.

Decent location though.

Exactly as the title says - this is a clean, modern hostel which is in a perfect location for visiting Prague in terms of transport, tourist attractions and nightlife. When we stayed, the atmosphere there wasn't particularly 'fun' but personally, I really don't mind as long as the rooms are clean and modern, which they were (including the bathrooms, which were also great). I think they give free sandwiches but we weren't up in time to find out! The guys working at reception were also very helpful. Only thing I would say, I guess, is that once you know the code then you know the code to all the floors and front door so could technically go to any room, which isn't that great - perhaps better to have a card system.

This hostel is right next to old town Prague, and it is about ten - fifteen minutes walk from the train station!
Upon arrival we were so pleased that it lived up to the photos online. The reception staff were so friendly and helpful. The place was so secure (pin code entry to building and your floor) lockers in your room (you can decide whether one each or one for your group).
We were 3 girls staying in an 8 bed mixed dorm.
The whole place was immaculate, carpeted floors (super clean), amazing bed! So comfy, slept like a log here.
Shower / toilet area was beautiful and so clean (only down side is the really weak water pressure in the shower) but you can deal with it.

Great social area downstairs loads of space in the kitchen and seating area too.

This hostel is so close to everything, it is simply amazing. So many beautiful things to do and see in old town Prague.

I would recommend this hostel to anyone and everyone. Such a good price for such good quality. Would not hesitate to return.

A very nice hostel, 2 min walk away from the old center, great and very friendly staff, free breakfast (milk+cereal, orange juice, coffee, a sandwich). All rooms have lockers for keeping your precious belongings safe. Water pressure is a little low.. hard to take a shower, but manageable. Reasonable pricing, even cheap I would say, considering location and time of week we checked in.

It's only a couple of minutes walk from the very center square of old town in Prague.
The staffs are very very friendly and nice.
And it's SUPER clean and I think this is one of the reasons there's many women traveler staying at this hostel. And a FREE easy breakfast was provided every morning.
I would definitely stay here if I would choose a hostel in Prague again.
And other traveler staying here are also nice and easy going to hang around together.

Great location, close to the old town main square! The lockers in the rooms were also very good! However very little charging points, none for the lower bunks in our room! Breakfast was small (a bowl of cereal) but still good! The hostel also seems to run there own exchange rate which I found unusual and were charged more than what we had originally booked it for, only a small difference of £3 per person but still! It also took a while to check in (after 3) but were allowed to use the facilities in the mean time.

The hostel had a really great location, right in the centre of the city which made it easy to get around and get back to after a night out. Had a lot of facilities but could have done with more bathrooms. The main issue with this hostel was they made us Change rooms every morning before 10.00am which was such a pain especially if we had been out the night before! Great hostel but I would recommend checking you are staying in the same room for you whole stay before booking.
