One shower/toilet for 12 people is rough. And the bolted the window shut, which made it ridiculously warm. Otherwise great place right by the castle and easy enough from public transport
Great Hostel! The only problem I had was that the keys were difficult to figure out. Other guests seemed to have problems with the keys and locks too. But the location was great, it was clean, and everyone was so friendly!
I loved this place! Aside from the fact that one must walk up an enormous hill carrying luggage to get there, this place is 100% perfect. Clean, comfortable, well-priced, and full of cool people.

The location is great, just behind the castle where you can enjoy awesome views of the city. (Be prepared to climb up a hill every time). The bedrooms are comfortable and the kitchen is functional and well equipped. For only 3 euros you can eat a great "all you can eat " breakfast. I would suggest it to everyone.

I only stayed at the Arpacay for one night but it seemed well run and very clean. The hostel is very near to Prague Castle but on the map you can't tell that it's up a steep hill- not awful just be aware of the climb. Either way it's well worth it, my short experience at Arpacay was very pleasant.
Except the walk/climb from the train station with the backpack, everything else was alright! And while I didn't get to stay too long, there really wasn't any thing to worry or complain. Overall, a good hostel~! Thanks.
Great hostel for meeting people. Next to Prague castle so a good location and only a short walk from Old Town Square. The 'hill' mentioned in other reviews was more of a slight slope and you shouldn't let it put you off. The staff didn't seem to care much for interacting with guests but the security was acceptable. We were in the top room (44) and found the one shower between 14 people to be very inconvenient. It was also too low to stand up in. Showers need improving but that's all.
Absolutely brilliant hostel, has a gorgeous layout and the staff are all helpful. The location is brilliant, although it is up a hill it is very close to Prague castle and a walkable distance to the centre. They provide free maps in reception to help you navigate your way around the city and even sell tickets for the pub crawls!
Very nice place! I'm doing interrailing and this is one of the best hostels on my trip so far! You get sheets and a towel and the staff were really nice! Stat here!!
This hostel was wonderful, with working computers, clean showers, and even decorated rooms! Plus, they are right down the street from the Prague castle, the Charles bridge, a beautiful historic church, and a town square with markets and street musicians. This hostel is quite busy in summer, so book in advance during that time. However, the hostel really needs customers the rest of the year, so support this great place If you visit Prague in fall or winter.
The hostel is awesome, the facilities are big and clean, great security and staff. You can have free wifi, towels, sheets, and more. You can pay with credit card, and can also pay breakfast in euros (totally worth it).
Well quite alright hostel. Very Nice staff which was helpful with laundry and others things. It is close to everything, and good wi-fi. But the other guests was very laud and screaming late at night on the main areas, so it was quite difficult to sleep. And Not a place for backpackers to meet others, but overall quite good otherwise.
We had to go up the hill then can reach the hostel when we got off the tram. The staff are helpful and friendly. Everything is clean. It's near the castle area.
The hostel is directly adjacent to Prague castle. Slightly out of the way of the centre and trams nearby don't go directly to the centre otherwise it's a 15/20 min walk. Do not book the 4 bed dorm. We wer in an attic with no door and sharing the room with about 16 other people, even though we paid more and the lockers were flimsy and small. Book the 6 bed dorms much nicer and more private.
A very nice hostel, very clean with lockers and a padlock provided however only provided with one padlock for one locker despite the booking was for two people-we needed two of the lockers but we had our own padlocks so it was okay for us. We had a room with an amazing view over the whole of Prague..almost better view than from the Castle. It is 5 minute walk up to the castle and about 20 minutes to the main Old Town Square. Not great for meeting people-only downside to it, no social area.
great hostel in good location, with very clean and spacious facilities.
nice beds with storage (they give you a lock). Sheets and towel are free, plus great shower and toilet facilities. Location is near the castle, which is great for sightseeing. If you plan to spend more time in Old Town, this is on the other side of the river, but a nice area with shops nearby. Easy 10 minute walk to the Charles Bridge and Old Town though.
Some people of the staff were not that nice. Very few WC and not private at all.
the only bad thing i can tell about the hostal is the amount of showers. One shower for 14 peolpe is not enough. And there was no option to use another one on another floor. :( Really bad. The atmosphere was ok. Not as freindly as im used to in other hostals, but it was good. The location is ecxellent! You can walk to the castle in less than 5 minutes. and the view is gorgeous up ther.
