“A few problems...”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

Very nice staff BUT:
1. Disco music booming away all night from the downstairs disco friday and saturday til 09.30 in the morning!!! Upside is that the reception has free ear plugs for you. And this is only a problem on the 1st floor.
2. NO ventilation in either toilets or showers. So the windows were just left open 24/7 which was COLD. And a total waste of energy from the red hot radiators...
3. Thin cheap mattresses

Good things were the nice staff and free maps, ear plugs, shower gel, extra duvet, sandwiches, coffee and orange juice all day long.

Room Tip: 2. floor is more quiet

The hostel is cheap and very good for a short stay. The rooms are quite large and the beds comfortable. The hostel is clean, but it definitely is not enough bathrooms and toilets. The price includes a lot of things, such as towels. Stuff is very friendly and helpful.

Stayed here in a 4 bed room with a private bathroom. Very clean, the staff were friendly and helpful helping us book taxis to the airport etc. A little bit noisy at times but not too bad with free tea and coffee all day and sandwiches for breakfast you really cant go wrong. Great location within walking distance to the astronomical clock and St Wenceslas Square. Would definitely book in again next time I'm in Prague.

Great location in Prague, the staff were friendly and super helpful. I was impressed with the extras that could be borrowed (for a deposit) from reception...travel adapters, board games, hairdryers.

Rooms were clean and comfortable. Best shower I've encountered so far on my Europe travels, didn't alternate between hot and cold and good pressure.

Only grizzle was the pillow was a lumpy, thin little thing. Also no credit card facility for payment when checking in was a tad inconvenient.
