El hostal está muy bien situado, a escasos 2 minutos del Reloj Astronómico, el sitio está muy limpio y el personal es atento, por la moche hay un poco de ruido pero es normal siendo un lugar tan céntrico.

When we came into the hostel, the man at the desk (an older man with long-ish grey hair - apologies as I don't know his name) was very rude and unhelpful. Our room was absolutely fine but we booked for an En Suite, which was outside of our room, down the corridor. We weren't told this when we booked the room so this was quite inconvenient and misleading. Nonetheless, the bathroom was very clean. There is only wifi in the lobby; again an inconvenience and there is no atmosphere for backpackers.

unbeatable location, staff super friendly, facilities in good condition and easy to access. the inly bad thing is that i only had a fan and it was like 35 degrees i my room, i guess Prague is not used to these conditions and no rooms jave AC... i highly recommend this hostel

1) The hostel is dirty and untidy, especially the common bath, and the room (the floor of the room was very dirty). 2) Our room was not conform at a minimum standard of quality and confort: the windows didn't had adeguate curtains for the dark. One of the windows is very close to a terrace of another apartment, and everybody can see and listen what you do. It doesn't guarantee a minimum of privacy. 3) Generally the structure of the hostel is unkempt, and the entrance is a shop of souvenir.

Mitt i gamlastan så läget var perfekt, speciellt för det priset. Bra frukost för en billig peng. Vi hade lite problem med att hitta då Den här gatan är 'uppdelad' i två gator, men det gick bra till slut.

Vi kom fram till Prag väldigt tidigt på morgonen efter att knappt ha sovit något på nattåget. Dom lät oss checka in flera timmar tidigare så vi kunde få sova ett tag vilket var toppen, men rummet var väl ca 35+ grader så blev inte så mycket sömn ändå. Tvivlar på att det fanns ac nånstans i hela hostelet. Men läget var superbra då det låg nära Charles Bridge och i receptionen kunde man köpa vatten, godis, pasta, läsk, tandkräm mm. Trevlig och hjälpsam personal! Kök var ok, finns tvättmaskin.

Wifi is limited to the reception area and is patchy/unreliable. For me, this was a huge deal as I need wifi access to plan my travels and to keep in contact with fellow travelers/folks back home. It's Prague, so the building is old. This isn't a huge deal, but definitely know what you're getting yourself into.

A localização é excelente! Fiz todos os pontos turisticos a pé. O café da manhã é baratinho e vale a pena.

the greatest thing is the hostel is near the charles bridge. but in 8 bed room for women it was very dirty. There were no soap in the bathroom. Also when I take a shower I was screaming because I found a little kind of lizard. of course we get Duvet covers at the reception. But the red bedsheet where were dirty and dusty. Also I found some men hairs on the new duvet covers which were given at the reception. All in all actually it was very nasty. but for one night its ok.

Great location. Clean. Friendly staff. Great value for the money. Not the hostel's fault: Extreme noise from the street at night. Lot's of drunken singing by the tourists. If you need or want to sleep at night you may have to choose a location away from Old Town Prague.

The location is conveniently walking distance of metro stations and Old Town sights, but the street it's on is like Tourist Rapids. Takes a few minutes to get out of the crowd and out of the overpriced tourist area. And surrounding streets can be tricky to navigate for the directionally challenged. (No such thing as parallel roads). Lots of stairs and no elevator. Wifi sometimes had trouble. Staff is willing to help, even if they don't speak fluent English.

Room was clean and tidy, staff were very friendly and helpful. However, I was not impressed by the builders starting work at 5am on a Sunday morning! That really isn't on in any country. They could do with making the entrance a bit less bright as well, as it's a bit much when you enter at night.

Amazing location. Older building so lots of stairs. Not as lively bar area but there are plenty of other places. Would use again.

It was nice to stay there, good thing about the hostel was its location, Staff was helpful to an extent. I remember the name Michaela she was helpful. Just one other member staff wasn't that much . Very close to Charles bridge. I might stay there again, due to its location.

Lo unico bueno es que estaba bien ubicado. La cocina bastante completa, sin embargo no lo recomendaria. Es bastante incomodo tener que subir tres pisos a pie con la valija, y el edificio en si no esta en muy buenas condiciones.
