great hostel, absolutely loved the vibe created by the outdoor terrace. Staff were very helpful with any queries. Would definitely recommend and stay here again!
Unreal hostel with an amazing staff, a bit out of old town but Prague is so small it doesn't matter. Plus there's a monument 5 minutes or less right behind the hostel with unreal views, a great place to watch the sunrise or set!
Wonderful staff with lost of great tips. Awesome social area to meet other travellers, the free breakfast, dinners and cheap beer also helped! Clean, safe, full kitchen, fun!
Not at all close enough to the main city center. Did not provide guests with much info about it the city. Did not enforce quiet hours.
Absolutely love the place. Amazing atmosphere and the staff were great! Just a shame a I ran out of money and had to leave early :'( will be back for sure!

Great hostel, the downside was the location. There are a few restaurants/bars very very close however old town is about a 25-30 minute walk or a 8€ can ride. Other than that, it was excellent. Cheap beer sold at reception (1€), free coffee/tea always, free breakfast (ham, salami, bread, jams, cheeses), and decent prices laundry services. Awesome back terrace for hanging out and being social as well as ample inside social room. The rear opens up onto a great paved bike/running trail.
Great social atmosphere, free breakfast, free BBQ 3 nights a week, cheap beers, locker for my valuables. Couldn't ask for much more. One of my favourite hostels that I've stayed in. Only downside was that not every bed in my 11 bed dorm room had a power outlet near it.
Small hostel, cosy vibe. Can't say it had much of an atmosphere and no one really told me what was good to do or if there were pub crawls etc (thought was strange because Prague is renowned for it). Rooms are great, all timber finishes and comfortable beds that you can actually FIT in.
Loved it. The some of the staff was really friendly, they were all helpful. The place was constantly being cleaned! Loved the patio area. Great for meeting people and connecting with other travellers. Would not recommend for families with small children.
One of the best hostels you'll ever stay at. Great and friendly staff, stable WiFi, a very comprehensive breakfast including meats, cheese as well as cereals. The art in the hostel is quite noteworthy, with some of the bathrooms doors even being decorated with alien hybrids of famous celebrities (e.g. Bob Marley, Amy Winehouse). The bar on the terrace is a great way to meet people and they have great events including half price beer and a free BBQ which just make this the best hostel in Prague.
A brilliant hostel with friendly staff, good facilities, and a smashing morning breakfast. Free BBQ on certain days run by the staff in the awesome outdoor seating area. A 20 minute walk from the centre but you can get the bus in if you want so the location isn't terrible.
Me and my 3 friends found this the best hostel we stayed at during our inter-rail trip round europe and the only place you should stay in Prague. Very close to the railway station, easy to get cheap taxi to anywhere you'd want to go. The staff were great and very friendly offering a free bbq and cheap cocktails all night shows a great level of care to their valued customers. Great value for money and incredibly easy to meet fellow travellers from around the world! Would 100% recommend.
Great hostel! Was a bit difficult to find it in the beginning, but when you figure that out the rest is great. Staff was friendly, atmosphere was good, easy to make new friends for a solo traveller. Rooms were clean and nice. Only downside is that there wasn't enough power sockets in the room. Breakfast included, but it could've been better. Overall, I would definitely recommend this place!:) Had a great stay.
Amazing place, the best atmosphere in Europe that I've experienced so far. This is a proper backpackers hostel (no rich kids or yuppies, just educated - interesting people from around the world). Expect good/cheap beer, good food and good company! The staff are amazingly friendly and should be proud of what a nice hostel they're running. Seriously, if you're in Prague, stay here!

Really good hostel. Location is a bit of a walk into the city but easily navigated and took 20mins Max. Very clean toilets and the showers were hot! Wifi worked well and a really nice terrace area to meet people
Staff were beyond unhelpful. Lots of basic information was either not known or told the wrong thing. Was a nice crew in the dorm room and we all hung out there around the table as not friendly atmosphere on the deck area. Breakfast was good.
The breakfast and bbq's were great! Saved us a lot of money from having to buy food all the time, and the staff were friendly enough.
Best hostel we stayed in. Great atmosphere, everyone was friendly and up for a good time. The free BBQ was good too. It was really clean.. All the sheets were clean and the kitchen and bathrooms were spotless too. All the staff we friendly and helpful. The owner was particularly great and welcoming. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Prague! Really close to the old town too which was good as it was walking distance for a night out. We are 2 20 year old girls and felt safe and secure at all times.
Though the location isn't right in the middle of the tourist attractions, I actually think it's better where it is. Prague 3 is a great place to explore and after being in Prague 3 times before, it was an area I've never seen. Good chill area outside, and we had the private three bedroom and it was comparable to a hotel. Loved our stay.
The staff was really helpful, breakfast was included, and the free BBQ was great. It was a really chill environment, lots of opportunities to meet new people. Clientelle were all pretty mature, no issues with stupid kids. Wi-fi was weak throughout most of the hostel, especially in our room at the end of the hall.
