The hostel is good, clean and comfortable, but there is no reception when we arrive, actually it looks like an apartment where they rent the rooms and not a hostel properly. It's necessary to phone call the Miss or to send her an e-mail before arriving. On the other hand, she is very sympathetic and the building is very well located in Prague, close to the train station and the National Museum
Upon arriving, we found out that our group of 3 and an additional 5 others did not have a space despite U.S. Making a reservation over a month before our arrival. After an hour, they finally but is in a hostel down the street, but not before cutting into our short time to explore the city. Extremely disappointed and we weren't even compensated for our time and trouble.
We had a bad and unfriendly encounter the landlady who tried to make us pay for a third night in Baraka which we had emailed her to cancel two weeks before our arrival, as per her cancellation policy. She made us feel guilty and ungenerous in our unwillingness to pay for a night that we did not stay in the room. We are on a strict budget for accommodation and she made us feel very uncomfortable making comments that we would spend that money on alcohol instead.

The hostel is very hard to find. We were expecting a sign or something at the given address, but all we found (after looking very hard) was the buzzer, as if we were just going to someone's apartment. The first time we rang the buzzer there was no answer, so we temporarily thought the hostel didn't exist.
The flat is very good situated near to the main railway station and the city center. Unfortunately the old windows are not good against the noise from the big street and the trains that pass close to the house - not for sensible people. The rooms and a common kitchen are very good equipped, there is tea for free and all tools that you need to cook.

Great location right in the centre, there is tram stop , and metro nearby and everything is in walking distance supermarkets , pubs restaurants and downtown so we walked everywhere which was very convenient , the apartment and rooms are very big there is kitchen and fridge which was handy. The lady who met us spoke English & was very informative about where to go the best art galleries and museums to visit which was great I would definitely stay here again next time we are in Prague.
