One of the better hostels I've stayed in. Great atmosphere. Staff were very accomodating and helpful. Free breakfast. Great wifi. Comfy beds.


Perfectly located hostel for the centre of Prague! Quite a calm hostel, with rooms of a good size. Staff were very helpful with all of our queries. Overall, very happy with our stay and would stay there again!


Loved the atmosphere at the hostel. Made friends with a lot of young lone travellers like myself so that was good! One of the best I've ever stayed in. Great wifi. Great staff. Very accomodating. Would stay there again for sure!


My favorite hostel so far, atmosphere and staff set it apart.


If you are 20 years old and you like to party its a hostel for you, but if u want to get rest just dont go there. Too small kitchen, just one table with 6 seats its too poor for such a hotel. We were told that the hostel have a partking, but the truth is that its about 2 kilometers from the hostel - thats a problem for a turist like my with my own car. When we arrive to the hostel about 2 hours after check - in we were told to abandone the room becouse of desinfection !!!


This hostel is in an amazing location. You won't be disappointed to stay here.


The staff is really friendly and helpful!! The location is perfect!! You are really in the middle of the Prague Lift, doesn't matter if you are on a party trip or more on the sightseeing trip!! But if you wish yourself a calm, silent night, this hostel is the wrong adress. Because the hostel is completly in the center, there is a lot going on at the street and in summer you NEED the window open. (But I heard that it's better when you get a room to the back side!! -> So just ask for!!)

We were moved to old Prague hostel then we had our camera and money stolen from our locked lockers. The other people in our room also had their things stolen (eg iPads). Turns out the lockers (being old and wooden) only need to be hit a certain way to open them when they are locked. Manager was unhelpful and unsympathetic. Awful experience. Would not recommend this chain of hostels

Even though we had pre-booked months ahead of time, they asked us to change rooms at 10am the next day which was very unexpected and was a pain since we had to put our bags in the storage room for a few hours while they prepared our second room. The shared dorms are quite small and the bathrooms are tiny. The beds were alright.


I ran tours in Prague last year, and Ive stayed in a few different hostels in Prague before, this is a good hostel, but I can almost definitely say that it is one of the best positioned hostels in Prague


Great place to stay. Friendly and patient staff eager to help and show Prague in the best possible way.

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.


A very good hostel in a great location!!


Building not equipt for hot weather Female showers see through


4th,floor very hot at night need ceiling fans


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
