Fantastic location. Rooms were clean and secure. The staff were very lovely and welcoming, franz the budgie was amazing. Would definitely recommend.

Hostel staff were very helpful throughout our stay. We were delayed arriving so they left us our keys with another business so that we were able to collect them after the reception closed. Bathrooms were clean although light sensors became frustrating when they turned off every 5 seconds. My only complaint would be that a friend of mine was kicked out her bed by the cleaner (in error) one day. Some towels went missing but were eventually returned. I would stay here again for the location!

The hostel is in a great location right by the Old Town Square. The hostel is clean and the staff is friendly, but they don't have anyone on the premises 24 hours, so if there are any problems after reception closes, they can't do anything to remedy it (like when the power went out one night, or when the top bunk falls out and you don't have a bed-- all of which happened during my stay). The hostel doesn't make it easy to meet people because there's no central area to meet people.

The staff at the hostel made our stay a lot better than expected. We were delayed due to our train and the staff allowed us to check in late and held our keys for us. They were more than understanding. The facilities were average but some of the showers didn't seem to work so well. The location was amazing and right in old square, we would definitely stay in this hostel again.

Comfy beds, clean toilets and showers. Awesome location, you can see Old Town Square from the front door! With this hostel you're paying for location than anything else. No bar, no communal area, there were little kids (7 year old's) in the hostel with their parents?! There were also old couples (60 year old's). It was a bit weird. You need to pay in cash, which could be good or bad. We met nice people in our room. Overall, its alright, but I wouldn't stay there again.

Highly recommended! The person who greeted us was so lovely and really made our afternoon! the lift was something out of a nightmare however it kind of made our stay! If you like Franz Kafka, this is the place for you. Much love

The most impressive aspect of this hostel is its location: located literally 20 meters from the main square, the hostel couldn't be any better situated.

The lights turning off every five seconds (motion-sensors) is more irritating than you could ever expect. There aren't really good common spaces, either, which is a little frustrating. The wifi is terrible. The staff is quite nice, however, and the location is fantastic. It's close to everything.

We loved this hostel. We stayed for 3 nights in a private spacious double room, with communal shower/toilet. It was ideally located just off from the old town square, and for the price we paid we would definitely stay here again and recommend to others (if they don't mind not having a private bathroom). It didn't look great from the outside but upstairs was very welcoming, clean and tidy, and the brunette receptionist was so friendly and helpful. We'll be back next year!

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.
