I like it that there was a gym. City centre accessible via tram 24. It was really warm in Prague during my stay. Above 30 deg. No air-conditioning. I sweated buckets. The staff all seemed like they didn't want to work there, including the gym staff. Wifi connection is weak but fast, at least for my room. Had to go down to lobby for better signal.
The worker were unfriendly and always with bad mood, if u want to ask something its better not asking, second : if u wanna eat or have breakfast with cigarette smoke and without ventilation then u are in the right place ! Its a place for families and apparently for workers cause the guy from the Reception was alwalys saying please dont talk outside the building thwre are people sleeping, very annoying !
Met some cool people out front. The wifi here was actually descent, very surprised. It does get very hot in the rooms. There was no real hangout but there is a cool club down the street. A few slops on 3 different trains to get into Prague.
A good breakfast is offered, but please get up early if the hostel is fully booked - otherwise some dishes may be depleted at your arrival. Staff gives strange recomendations to close the windows (providing NO ventilation inside the building AT ALL) because of insects coming from the river. What force prevents the staff to install nets onto each window to solve this simple problem? I do not believe it will cost so much.
Great Hostel, much more like a hotel than a hostel though, if you book the room you can share with friends to cut the cost down or you have the whole thing to yourself, very private, not social at all. great breakfast for the price (Included in the stay) and the gym is pretty good, it has a squat/bench/shoulder press rack on tracks, so it is not like a free squat rack with a barbell and weights. but they also have a shoulder press machine, curl machine, and a few others. had some good workouts
