Excellent value for money. Very friendly staff.


The location was absolutely perfect. Staff was really nice and helpful. I guess the only bad part was that showers were on another floor and coridors were cold. If i ever come back to Prague i will definitely choose the same hostel :)

Book this hostel!!! People are great, you are 1 min from town square or charles bridge, everything is renovated, it was super clean like a hotel (double bed room) Only drawback...which didn't matter, the walls are pretty thin to the hallway. But was no problem...we didn't come to sleep all day in Prague ;) PS: No VISA or debit card possible!!! Cash


Location - Excellent! The staff was also incredibly nice! There wasn't a proper social area, so I recommend it if you are not planning to spend any time in the hostel - then it's perfect - cheap and good location. But not the best if you want to meet other travelers and socialise :)


The location is really good just five minutes walking from the city center, about the hostel well is fine, it doesn´t have anything special, is well located and has good facilities.


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
