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)


86%

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

It's in an old school with big echo-y rooms, so even if people are trying to be quiet, it's VERY noisy. Bring earplugs, the creaky door and floors of my room woke me up everytime someone tried to sneak in to sleep. Otherwise no complaints, good price and clean, not far from the center of the city.

Not the best hostel in Prague, but one of the cheap options..

fantastic hostel. you can do everything you want, always! it's just the ideal hostel to meet people, have fun and do many activities! you can BBQ, play footbal, blaze everywhere, play table tennis, flipper, and play your own music and drink beer when you get back from the night out! love it! 100%

The school that works as a hostel of the summer months is a great idea. Essentially because of there being the necessary facilities for a school there is like wise the right facilities for a hostel. Unfortunately it is run rather loosely. Where people are allowed to smoke everywhere- it therefore has a grotty atmosphere. The dorm rooms realistically don't have enough airflow for the amount of people in the room- so they smell. The mattresses are very hard and there is inadequate bedding provided
