Was really nice hostel for this money


The hostel is clean and very well located. In the heart of Mala Strana. There are no beds, just mattresses on the floor. No so bad for the price you are paying. It lacks of common places. Not the right place to meet people. If you travel alone and you have some more money to spend go to another hostel. This is just a place to sleep.


More hotel than hostel, nice building, comfortable beds. good rates, not far from main attractions. Bathroom could've been a little cleaner though


the rooms were filthy classrooms with filthy matress on the floor, without lockers. You had to sleep with the bag in your "bed" because everyone can enter in the room. You had 3 bathrooms for 2-3 rooms of 20 people.. DO NOT stay here!! it was the worst place I had ever seen in europe (and I travel a lot) and for this price? they are crazy... for 1/2 € more you can stay in a NORMAL hostel, not this crappy accomodation that they sell to you as hostel. this seems as you are a refugee!

Thank you for your opinion, we appreciate all of them You can see very clear on the hostel pictures that we provide just the matresses. You can book room with 5, 10 or 20 beds. It´s up to you. This is the reason why you can sleep just for 300czk (in high season) next the Charles Bridge, the pretty cool location!!


Slightly bizarre sleeping on a mattress in a classroom but it's more comfortable than it sounds! We were in a room with eight people which was fine and the toilets/shower facilities were better than in some of the full time hostels we were in. Central location too, very close to Charles Bridge meant that it was so convenient for seeing the castle and the old town square.


Excellent location for sight seeing. Easy walk to Castle and bridge. Literally just mattresses on the floor in a school building. Slovakian girl at desk was really helpful, irish guy seems angry at the world.You work in customer service, work on your people skills. Ok kitchen but shower facilities have no curtains so had to shower in my swimming suit.


If you are looking for luxus, dont go there. But if you are looking for a cheap but secure place, with an excellent location, it is recommendable. The hostel is a school during the year, and a hostel in summer. Beds are just matreces on the ground, and showers are like in a school. But it is excellent for young people. Wifi only in the corridor, it doesnt get into the rooms...


Staffs were unpolited

Hostel was alright, just very limited security, would have been nice to be able to lock the doors to our rooms. I woke up with a strange man next to my bed going through my bags trying to steal my things. I jumped up and caught him red handed so he couldn't take anything, but it was more the fact that I was sleeping alone in the room and anyone could just come in. I felt extremely unsafe.


Stayed here for 12 days and had an absolute blast. Met some amazing people staying there and was the perfect location. Right in the centre close to everything. Would definitely recommend.

Overall, a good hostel. Only thing is that it is a school during the year, so all the facilities are far away, like the showers, bathrooms, and lockers. Friendly staff, good for the price.


good hostel and nice and close in the city centre, although there weren't many people there staying at the hostel this was nice in a way as we had the whole dorm pretty much to ourselves but there was however little atmosphere


The staff is very kind. The location is perfect! I would stay here again.


The lack of security is frightening and so was the amount of robberies that take place. Anyone can walk into the building and rooms at anytime. I had ants in my "bed"- a mattress on the floor. The kitchen was fine but only one table for the whole hostel to sit

We have 24hours recepcion, but of course you shouldn´t leave your money under the pillow, please use your locker (for free)...Pictures show very clearly that we do not have beds, just the mattresses, which are very comfortable (incl.blanket, pillow, bed sheets, everything for free). Hostel is a school which works just during summer holiday (no reason to bring 100beds...). That´s why we are sooo cheap and you can stay next to Charles Bridge and spend your money for other purposes:
