“More Than Your Average Hostel”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

This is a hostel that’s marketed to your average backpacker or budget traveler. I came to Prague on a last minute notice without any hotel reservation and Czech Inn was top of the search list when I Googled for an immediate overnight accommodation. Luckily they had a spare room that was meant for two but I got to stay in it by myself. The double accommodation was pretty basic with two beds and sink. Bathroom was to be shared with everyone else on the floor which I didn’t mind since it was kept clean and well-maintained. An unfortunate experience with a group of loud American teenagers made me reconsider the place. One of the things to keep in mind when staying at backpacker places. Luckily the manager was kind enough to offer me one of the rooms in one of the apartments upstairs. He managed to turn the whole experience around and I was very happy to find this place. It was a spacious loft with a neat roof window which I always love since it brings in natural light to the whole room. The kitchen has a working stove and counters are stocked with dining plates and utensils. The bedroom though was kind of tight but good enough to sleep in. They even went to the extent of providing bathroom amenities which I wasn’t expecting which added a touch of professionalism you would only find in a decent hotel. Bedroom had access to a roof deck which you shared with the other apartments. This might be something unwelcomed especially if the room next door decides to throw a party but I remember seeing a notice from the management posted on the door addressing this potential problem. For an additional price you get to have breakfast at the café downstairs in the morning which isn’t really that bad but it’s not spectacular either. It’s best to create your own meals if you have access to a kitchen. A lot of convenience stores can be found near the area so you won’t have trouble looking for some items you might need. Beside the reception area they had a number of computers you can use in case you needed to check your e-mail although if you brought your own laptop there’s WiFi in the whole building. I can’t recall if it was free though. The overall dedication and friendly atmosphere from the staff was what won me over and I really wished I could stay longer. I was even surprised to find the manager working the reception which is not a common scene in big hotels and they go that extra mile to understand what you need and give you information about getting around town. The map they give out was really handy and I made sure I had it with me at all times since it’s got all these useful information on it. Check out was also easy although if you’re unlucky might have to wait in line if there’s big group checking in at the counter. They have this area where you can leave your luggage in case you want to do a last run around town before going. This is definitely going to be the place I come back to when I return to Prague soon.

Room Tip: Any room without loud teenagers is always good.

Looks more like a hotel than a hostel. Nice private bathrooms, very clean and modern. Just felt that it was a little far from the old part of the town, but it was ok. Just a short trip using the tram.
The breakfest (not included) is very nice.
Staff is nice too, there was a girl that spoke Spanhish and Portuguese. Very helpfull.

Great hostel.

Rooms were spacious and clean with big windows. The bathrooms were incredibly clean and nice -- afforded lots of privacy and room to get ready.

Breakfast buffet was delicious and really well-priced.

Hostel was close to a tram stop, so getting around was very easy. The staff were extremely helpful too, and were able to provide maps and many suggestions about the surrounding area.

We had a private room at the Czech inn and it was amazing! Extremely clean, comfortable and nicely decorated it was like staying in a fancy hotel! The staff were helpful and friendly and the bar was good, the hostel has dryers and washing machines you can use which is great although it is a bit expensive! We didn't use public transport just walked into Prague old town which only took about 15 minutes and was a nice walk. I would definitely recommend staying at the Czech Inn I didn't want to leave!

Driving around europe when we got to a town we'd check a few places to find the best.
After seeing this we didnt bother looking at any more.
Great foyer, freandly helpful staff and couldnt believe the room we got for the price we paid.
Clean, big enough to live in, awesome bed, modern bathroom, nice views over a park, and a chandelier!
Its not in the center of town but there are regular trams on the street out front.
We didnt use the pool or gym so i cant comment.

Impressive place! you get the best out of what you get in a hotel , with a hostel atmosphere! The rooms are quite modern, beautifully designed, my room had 2 bathrooms! one with a rain shower!
it has a very cosy bar in the first floor, and a lift . it's a bit out of the city center , but i honestly didn't mind walking and if you don't feel like walking there's a tram that passes right in front of it, and the staff can rent you a transit staff for as long as you want!
and I only paid 11 euros without breakfast! what a great value for money!
