I didn't like people smoking weed in the hostel and neither the smell of the hostel and specifically in our room. Breakfast had too few options and always the same.

Staff were all helpful with directions & sightseeing ideas. There was an old musty smell throughout the hostel but you got used to it. Showers needed to be held down by a button continuously so wouldn't turn off.


we had a private double room but it wasn't as it appeared in pictures, marketed as pragues most colourful hostel, well yes the wall paper is colourful but the lighting gives it a dingy feel. the toilet on our floor was shared with all other private rooms however it didn't flush properly, and the seperate shower was dirty and was push button water but when you pushed the button the flow only lasted 10-15 seconds before cutting off and having to push the button again. it was not centrally located


I realy liked the interior, those wallpapers, adv plates, typing machine, vintage stuff, beer bottle collection. I was impressed.


Unfortunately not everything looked that clean as it probably was. That was also enforced by the smell of old cigarettes that´s stuck in the furniture. The showers are not great also. You have to keep pushing the button if you want to keep the water running. So if you're a girl with long hair it's one of the worst things possible. One of the good things about the hostel is the included breakfast and also the staff is great, funny and helpfull!


badly soundproofed and squeak doors may prevent you from sleeping late.

This could be an awesome place if some thing were fixed. * Overall the place suffers from ventilation problems.In the twin room we stayed it was worst,as there was mould growing on the walls and no windows to air it out. * Painfully understaffed. 1 pers dealing with the bar,check in and any other queries.The whole check in process took well 2 hrs. * No free parking although listed in facilities Pros:good selection of beers, interesting neighbourhood, some friendly staff members, ok breakfast


We accidentally booked our night for the next night so we arrived one day prior to our booking. The staff were nice enough to let us sleep in cellar for a small fee. That very nice. The rooms are very tidy and nice. I love the beer selection that they have as well


Great hostel. While the location is not the best one could hope for, the fact they have on tap beer and a huge collecting of bottled beer makes it a rocking joint. The staff were relaxed and easy to have a conversation with. A free breakfast is always a treat aswell :) Would deffinatly recommend and return to.


We took the Low-Budget-Double-Room and it was horrible. There was no freh-air (no window, no airconditioning), so it was hot and smelly. It was also very small and because it´s next to the lounge it was very loud till the middle of the night (4 o´clock). Even the music from reception was more like a disco party. We would NOT advice to get this room even if it´s cheap, but you won´t enjoy it. It seems more like a storage room. The hostel by itself was okay. There is free breakfast and WIFI.
