Awful. The place is a deserted elementary school. I slept in one of the kindergarden rooms. The toilets and showers are unclean and barely work. The mirrors are the size of half your face. The staff isn't very polite, very sarcastic and looks at you like a pest. The food they served was terrible. Very dirty. The individual rooms don't lock. Anyone can come in into any room, so if you choose a girls dorm, guys can come in. Really not worth the money.

Hello, cleaners are working from 6 a.m. till 11 p.m. and 4 of them every day. Last thing what they clean, before they leave, are toilets and showers. If one of your negatives is small mirror, then its sad. You slept in hostel for cheapest prize, that we have for 1 night and only like 1 person. If it would be that bad like you say, then why people stay here more days then they reserve? Dormitory rooms are open and its on description as well. If you want private room, its not problem. :-)

Fantastic hostel with great atmosphere and facilities. Staff were really friendly and helpful, and hostel is right next to a tram stop so getting in to the centre of Prague is quick and easy. Free breakfast was basic but good, and the common area was good for meeting other travelers. Highly recommended.

Great party atmosphere downstairs but whole place was creepy, graffiti on the walls especially toilets, beds so hard. But for the price it's a place to lay ya head.

Big dorms and hard mattresses, but that's not what this place is about. Awesome vibe with loads of great people made for an enjoyable stay. Highly recommended if you like to party.

Excellent hostel! Its pretty cool its in a school...for gypsies! But its a good place, good people, location isnt bad as it can easily be reached by °free° trams. No locks on doors so maybe bring a lock. Would stay there again.

It wasn't like any hostel I been living in. The atmosphare was excellent, you met alot of people, the showers was pretty decent but during nighttime was the toilets pretty badly clean. The security was pretty low, you could have walked in to any room you wanted to. But still, the best hostel i've ever stayed at!

Worst place I stayed the whole of Interrailing. No curtains, no lockers, beds like rocks. I was pretty tired after Budapest and kinda wanted to chill, but when it says party hostel it means grim. Men came into our room at like five in the morning and started tryna make a pass at us when we were sleeping, not that it was easy to sleep in a room like that. Lots of beds seemed to be double booked. Free internet though, but only one kitchen three floors up. Very far out, not the one.

Hostel olet is about 10 minutes out of the centre on the tram or maybe a 20-30 minute walk. This sounds like an inconvenience but it's fine particularly given the good price. It's super cool as the hostel is in an elementary school - quite bizarre having kids' artwork on the walls but cool. The only concern was that the doors don't have locks on them - security is great at reception and you can hire lockers but I think bedroom doors should be lockable. Bring a sleeping bag or pay for a blanket!

Amelia, you dont need to pay anything. All what we need when you rent pillow, blanket, towel or key is deposit. When you bring rented things back we give you deposit back. So please tell me, where is that "pay" exactly?

Really nice hostel, clean and bright. Had to bring own blanket or pay which we weren't aware of. Felt safe and secure being solo female traveller. Definitely one of the better hostels in Prague, even if it is a little far away from the centre. (Easy enough to get in with public transport).

I really liked this place. Great atmosphere, really good for travellers who want to meet people. A little bit far from the centre of the city (you have to take a tram). Floors squeaked in the rooms, so maybe not for those who are light sleepers and dont want to be woken up.

When I was out interrailing, this was my favorite hostel! Really cheap, great atmosphere. If you like to party, this is definitely where you should stay! But for those of you who wants a good nights sleep, go elsewhere.

for me this was the ultimate hostel!! spent there 5 amazing nights, met awesome people from all over the world and had amazing time in prague! it's unbelievebly cheap price, and the staff is amazing! to be honest the beds are kinda hard but ok and at night its really really noisy! this hostel is not for who ever wants to have a real good night sleep and have silence and privecy. but if you want to meet people, party alot and just have the best time, thats the place for you! just amazing!

Very odd feel to it as is a school 9 months of the year! During the night mattresses were brought into our room which turned the 8 bed mixed dorm we'd booked into a 14 bed mixed dorm! Comfortable beds, must hire blankets and pillows but get deposit back, very loud at night as people partying downstairs all through the night and sounds echo up the stairs

Considering the guests staying here the facilities were clean and nice. But they did not enforce their stated quiet hours (7-10) in the slightest and it made those of us that actually wanted to sleep at night and explore the city during The day fairly miserable. It is possible to still have a fun, party friendly atmosphere without allowing people to scream and shout in the hallways at 3am. With that said, it was cheap and there was a free breakfast. I was just glad I had earplugs.

Its a school turned into a summer hostel but its kept clean. Its near the bus station which was good. I had paid for the breakfast online, yet they charged me extra on arrival (though it was just 1 euro)

Only one girls and boys shower per floor for about 3 rooms of 11. Very close to station and easy to find way to town but a bit of a walk. Very good staff and atmospher
