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.
