The location was prefect and central. However, the major problem we had was getting locked out our room at about 4 in the morning which is when we found out worryingly the reception wasnt 24/7 which was a major negative of our stay. Also our room was on the top floor and there was only one fan so the heat became unbearable even with the windows open.

Great value. Can't beat the location. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Bed, linens, and towels were clean. Floors in our room felt a little dirty. The shared bathroom was sometimes out of sorts (a pair of dirty underwear was in the shower for at least a whole day and I had to remove it myself in order to take a shower). Shower curtains could have been cleaner. Our room had a missing curtain so morning sunlight always woke us up.

Nothing fancy and it lacks the typical hostel atmosphere, but the location is perfect. The staff is friendly, the rooms are fairly clean, and the windows seem to be soundproof. There's no wifi in the rooms, only in the reception area. I thought it was a good deal for the price.

Really in the city centre but where the noise is at night. If you want to sleep, You're going to nave a bad time. Not very clean as well.

The staff was great, helped us in many ways. The location is just perfect. the breakfast is ok. Got one security issue: two crazy punks fought with a big Arab guy in our room (because one got the bed of another) hopefully we didn't face a tragedy! Also the shower room near the reception was stucked and the dirty water was coming up during the shower. and there was no wifi in the room.

Its fine if you have friends with you, but for solo backpackers this place is a little antisocial.

Bathroom wasn't clean, wifi didn't reach dorm, the dorm itself was just not good enough. Excellent friendly staff though, I even had a very late check out and nothing was said to me! :)

The good thing is the location. Right in the middle of old town, 3 minutes away from old town square. The hostel is very old, old beds, old facilities, and very rude staff. There where only a bald guy and a girl that were friendly, but the rest of the staff are always arguing between them in Czech.We booked another night the last day and in the morning we were kicked out because they said it was already booked before. Very Dusty and smelly, be ready to get allergies every morning. Good showers.

Everything OK, it is a very good option taking into account the quality-price balance...

Not very clean. To get to my room I had to face a lot of stairs (if you have big luggage that will be exhausting). Not very safe because a guy who was NOT checked in was sleeping in a couch near my room. He did not had a key, but he kept disturbing people inside the room to open the door to recharge his phone and use the toilet. Lockers and breakfast were good!!

Comparing with other Hostels in Prague , Ritchie's price should be much lower. Also the staff could be more friendly.

It takes 5-10minutes from metro station and famous bridge to this hostel !! There is not elevator, so it is hard to move large baggage. You should have cash, but you can use Euro !! Wifi condition was not good, but location was good for shopping!!

Pro's Location was good, the room was comfortable and the value for money was beyond excellent. Con's At breakfast there was only one toaster for all the guests so i had to wait a while to use it even though breakfast wasn't busy . The atmosphere was also a little dead but i think that may be due to the time of year we went (january)
