On arrival we were shipped off to another hostel with no apologies. The next hostel was understaffed. The hostel was far too hot with no way of cooling down. It was like a prison. We booked a 5 bed dorm but were put in a 6 bed dorm that was joined to another 6 bed dorm, so a 12 bed dorm for the same price. The location is fantastic but that is the only positive I have of our experience here.
Building not equipt for hot weather Female showers see through
Don't book this hostel if you want A/C in the summer months! We were on the top floor with no fan and despite the big windows, the air is completely still in Prague so we were sweltering (plus didn't want to leave our door open at night as no lockers). Very basic hostel compared to others, and the reception is not 24 hours - one night we had what appeared to be a drunk 40 year old man trying to kick our door down at 3/4am which we couldn't do anything about except try and sort it out ourselves!
The beds were terrible with small mattresses and very shaky bunks. Anytime one of us slightly moved, the other person would sway back and forth.
Small but excellent hostel. Friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was shoddy cereal but they also gave free sandwiches for lunch! Great location obviously that meant it can get quite loud as it is in the heart of the city but getting to places was easy :)
Great place location wise, but there was a bar right outside the room window making noise all night. Not the newest place.
Really nice kitchen and common room area, good for meeting new people, and about 5 minutes from the main old town square- not massively lively but definitely recommend, good atmosphere
A very well located hostel with really nice staff. We arrived at 7am on a sleeper train and they let us have a drink etc before storing our luggage. The hostel is near the famous clock and the rooms are spacious. The guests in our room were friendly, but other guests seemed a bit unsociable. A recommended hostel especially if you are with friends.
This hostel is right next to Old Town Square which is where all the tourist sites are. The shower on our floor was a bit dodgey, but there were plenty on the floors below to not worry about it. If you're a light sleeper then this one isn't the place for you. But I'm not, so i loved it.
Unfortunately 1 of our party had major surgery in Munich on their intestine which meant I had to stay behind. We made the hostel aware of the situation in advance and asked to reduce the beds we wanted to 3 because the other members were going to keep travelling. (We got acknowledgement from the hostel that only 3 beds were needed). Once the other members got to the hostel they checked in and went into their room only for 5 minutes later being told there was a problem and kicked out the hostel.
Excellent location! The staff were pretty friendly, I would definitely recommend. Free breakfast is always a plus. The only weird thing was there was no women's showers on my floor, but you just had to go up or down a floor, which was no big deal at all.
The location of this hostel is the only really good thing about it. There is no a/c (it was in the upper 30s our whole stay), the wifi only works in the common rooms, the breakfast was only cereal (one of our group members is lactose intolerant), and while they do offer free walking tours, they weren't clear on where to meet them and the tour left without us. If you're looking for a very basic backpacking hostel in a fabulous location, this is your place. Otherwise, stay somewhere better.
Good location, very close to old town square which is always busy which meant noisy nights and that makes it a bit difficult to get a good sleep. Overall it was a good experience in the hostel. Good value for money especially the central location.
Small stuffy rooms, no air con, noisy, women's showers are almost unusable due to small size and there is no privacy when showering. Very funky hostel and not in a good way. Helpful friendly staff.
What I found was that the wifi sucked (not in rooms or on floors higher than 2) so instead of people being social in the common spaces, they were getting the wifi. I met about 2 people in my 4 days which was quite disappointing
Lockers in the rooms, great location, so close to the main square and good clubs. Staff are consistently unfriendly however. Upon arrival we checked in with the woman with the shortest temper I have ever seen. The prospect of a group of 6 people paying separately, and sometimes in different currencies, baffled her. My friend was also verbally abused by a male member of staff for no reason other than "he has just started working here and isn't used to the night shift". Better hostels nearby.
Decent hostel in a great location but rooms are very small and the carpets do not seem to be very clean. It is extremely hot in the rooms at night in the summer as there is no air conditioning. Pros: the main desk is 24h and sells soft drinks, water and other snacks, wifi signal is excellent on the first two floors, the reception provides free towels.
