I was totally disappointed about this hostel. My bed had a hole in the middle and was difficult to sleep. They offered a kitchen but was totally useless for the time I was there. Also, someone opened my wallet while I was sleeping and stole all my cash. The owner then just said he can't do anything because there are no security cams in the room. Additionally, some of the staff were so annoying trying to sell me tours since the momment I arrived the city. I think this hostel got overrated.

Great location and happy staff! All the beds have their connections for electricity which is cool. Maybe toilets and bathrooms are not enough for that much people but for short stays, this is the right place.

The wifi didn't work, the showers were extremely cold, there was great confusion about beds, the bathroom was unclean... lots to improve.

Overall more or less pleased with this hostel but it's true that the showers do run out of hot water quickly & more problematic, they're seemingly always clogged leaving a disgusting pool. Great location, good breakfast, easy to meet people. One thing I found disappointing was they added an 11th bed to a 10 bed dorm in the middle of room making it quite congested. To me this is very unfair. Simply adding more beds when they feel like it to make more $ while inconveniencing the rest of us sucks!!

When I booked the hostel accommodation, it seemed that it wasn't very official. They emailed me to tell me that they overbooked and this should not be the case. Also, they didn't know if I paid yet or not and how much to pay.

The staff at Flamingo Hostel were outstanding, every person I encountered was very friendly and overly helpful! Any question I had they made sure to find the right answer for me. To add, could not believe how well-situated the hostel was, only a 2 minute walk to the main market square where all the free walking tours started, could not have asked for anything more.

The only good thing about this place was the breakfast. It's from the cafe down the street and it was bomb. They have pipe leaks everywhere so that only means there is mold. It was a little sketchy to be out early in the morning. We took a train from Prague and it was not ok!! They had police patrolling all night. I dont recommend this area for single travelers.
