We loved everything about our stay, but were very unfortunate regarding the other guests. The walls are paper thin and sound carries extremely well. One person was coughing through the night, some men came home drunk (left the men's toilet in an unusable state and tried to enter our room) and a bunch of students had a party in the hallway that lasted until 1am. I'd say it wasn't the hotel's fault, but there is no staff on site after 8pm, so you're on your own if stuff like this happens.

This hostel was prime location and really good value for money. The kitchen was right outside our room so we had a few guests that were being noisy whilst trying to sleep. The Staff arranged a late check in and early check out as requested and also organised a staff member to pick us up from the airport which was a massive help.


Perfect stay. Gerry is a sound man who helped me no end when I had any issue. The other staff were tops as well. I'd a really nice stay here. Another great Prague hostel in a great part of the town. Well done!


nice and beautiful staff


I moved here from another hostel in Prague and the location and room were definitely better. It would have been nice to have a common space or if the lockers were a bit bigger, but those are tiny complaints because I would definitely recommend the place to others.


Franz Kafka is a great hostel, The location is Amazing - 2 minute walk from old town square. The room was extremely large with a dining room table and a coffee table and seats. Additionally, the staff were very helpful and friendly. I would HIGHLY recommend Franz Kafka.


Lovely place to stay. Quiet and clean, very good location


This hostel was decent for the price range. 2 of 3 staff members were friendly but, I wouldn't take their suggestions on where to eat or go out. Every one of their suggestions can be found on Trip Advisor and is packed with tourists. Do not go to the James Dean Club! We did have an issue with other guests. The first night there was a couple making out on my friend's bed and when we came back to our hostel late the next night, another guy had moved his stuff off the bed and was sleeping there.
