on arriving no, I couldnt check in immediately. meantime the bar woman shared vodka and cigs with the bar clientele. welcome to the czech republic! possibly she was waiting for an english speaker to check me in (i had to wait 10-15 mins). otherwise, the place was quite charming (inc great bar) and had internet use which was handy. cheap too.
Cafe Hostel was a nice little hostel over top of a cafe. It's in a great location right near a big park and not far away from anything (Ceske Budejovice is super tiny). The room was nice and spacious with a free locker with a key for your belongings and the facilities were all clean. There's a kitchen for use, but there seemed to only be one bathroom for everyone. There are few rooms, so it was not a problem for us.
I love Ceske Budejovice and I liked this hostel, although it is run as a secondary business to the tavern downstairs. The beds were comfortable and the lockers were big for a rucksack. However, the kitchen was a bit dirty and smelt a bit, and the bathroom had a weird smell. It was good for one night...the bar downstairs is great. Very cosy.
