Room was nice and cosy, didn't know how to use the safes so couldn't lock my stuff, showers were pretty average and only 2 for everyone, was a bit bad in the morning rush. Overall was a fine place to stay and very affordable!


The staff was very friendly. The hostel is cute and in a good location. It also wasn't a noisy party hostel, which I prefer.


Great place! Loved the location.

Great location, friendly staff, full kitchens and beautiful balcony. The only thing is the shower situation: be ready to push a button every 10 seconds to keep the water running, but beside that amazing town!


The hostel is amazing! We arrived late from prague at 11.55pm but the driver picked us up from the train station even though we alighted at the wrong bus station. Staff were all friendly and helpful too

A perfect hostel with good staff and price!


very clean and quite hostel , feeling like at home. even for washing , it is free of charge


Good location Facilities were okay Nothing special


The door locks are weird as i got locked by both the front door and the toilet door for over 5 minutes. The light in the toilet will automatically turn off every 1 min which makes it quite creepy to stay inside while having shower...


Great location + Clean + Cheap price! Very good!


Was there for a short weekend, and alone in the hostel. I guess it is because it was still winter, but the hostel is very nice, nice location, kitchen and staff. Would recommend this one!


I was disappointed with the service at Hostel Merlin. The staff were unhelpful and barely spoke any English, the beds were small and uncomfortable, the showers were really annoying because you had to press the button every 10 seconds and the toilet was hard to use because the roof was on such a slope. I was very disappointed overall.


It is far away from the center but there has bus22 in front of the hostel, room and all hostel is good, everything is worth.


I had booked a pension with 2 double bed. It's not a peak season now. I occupied whole pension as own my lodge. View was nice. Price is reasonable.
