Rooms are old classrooms which smells chalk. I was able to get in the building without showing any card to the staff, so didn't feel secure. Toilets and bathrooms are very clean.


a bit expensive given that standard in Prague, just a bed with no private lockers in the room. But you have a giant storage space on the first floor. A bit far out and I wouldn't go back there unless every other hostel is booked.


Terrible management. Riots every night. No sleep


Very beautiful hostel. There's everything you need and you can meet a lot of people. But remember that it's a school. You will sleep in classrooms!


The place was dirty, loud, unorganized, they changed our bedroom types, it was open to whoever go inside at anytime without any security. They charge you for sheet and pillow. The beds are really uncomfortable and you hear yelling throughout the night.

We dont charge anyone for sheets and pillows. Its all for free and we only ask you for deposit, since you bring them back, we will give money back. Our cleaners working from 5 a.m. till 23 p.m. and doing their best. I dont know what happen to you and why you writing all this, but all I can say is just sorry and I hope you will enjoy the rest of your trip. PS: Your score shows that you were unhappy and you wanted prejudice our hostel, because Location etc. score is foolishness.


It was a good hostel, but the security was very bad. They sell in the hostel a lot of alcohol, so a lot of people were drunk. There was a lot of noise the whole night. We pay by arrival but they forgot the "ok"sign on our cards, so they thought by check out we didn't pay. At least it was okay, and we could leave. But it was a nice experience to sleep in a school.

They let people run riot no control from management. Worst few nights of my trip

Hello, Its nice to know, that we let people run riot... You have absolutely no clue about it. :-) 3 staff people run around the hostel and trying to stop them for 7 hours. We were in every room with police and there was one special police group outside take care about loudness as well. Since we couldnt be able to handle it, because all these Irish people were ignoring it. We called police and kick half of the hostel out immediately to find another hostel, because that night was unacceptable..


Great place for backpackers on a budget with a friendly atmosphere. Slightly too far out of town, about 30 min walk but 5 min on the tram which is frequent and not far from the hostel.

You get what you'd expect from an old school house. It was very echoey, but the people were nice and it was easy to get into the old town via tram. They have the option to change your Euros without commission which was handy but they weren't the best exchange rates. Great for a stop over provided no one is talking on the stairs!

Thank you for comment. Unfortunately you were one of the first guest, so hostel wasnt in full mood. :-D Hope you will come in middle of season when we have absolutely full and enjoy it. :-)


if you go out at night you will most likely have to get a taxi home unless you wait for the metro to reopen at around five. There are eight flights of stairs and no elevator so you had better hope you don't get a room on the top floor. If you want bed covers or towels you will have to put down a deposit and less money in the pocket is always a negative while backpacking.

Hello, You could use our night trams that goes 100m close to hostel. About our deposit system. We accept any kind of deposit, so if you don't like money one, you can leave your passport or ID, which can save your money. If people would give us back what we rent for free, we wouldn't need any deposit at all. Enjoy the rest of your trip...
