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.


Hostel bem localizado, mas as instalações são bem deficientes. O banheiro estava cheirando mal, e a maquina secadora não estava funcionando bem. Deveria ser mais barato pelo que oferece.


It's really a bit inconvenient that wifi can only be found near the reception, and the hygiene of the bathroom is not that satisfactory - I saw some small insects crawling on the floor, yet both the location and the staff there are nice.


Fantastic stay here! Brilliant location! Wouldn't say its best for meeting people but if youre already away with friends then its brilliant value for money and near everything!

This place has a few good things: Location, staff, guest kitchen, The room was dirty, pretty much all the time, there's no really much to say. Perfect location, and great hot water.


+ sehr gute Lage + nette Mitarbeiter + gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis - in den günstigeren Zimmern nicht komplett sauber - Wlan nur in der Lobby - die Küche ist dürftig ausgestattet (kaputter Toaster, unsauberes Geschirr) - der Raum für Gepäck in der Lobby ist zu klein Wenn man eine Übernachtung mitten in Prag zu einem günstigen Preis sucht, dann wird man hier fündig. Jemand, der aber ein bisschen mehr Anspruch mit sich bringt (Wlan, Sauberkeit), wird etwas enttäuscht werden.

The staff were friendly enough and the rooms were great! Wifi is only available in the lobby, but when in Prague do you really need Wifi in your room? The highlight of this hostel however is the location. We could not have dreamed of a more central spot! 2 mins from Charles Bridge. 2 mins to the old town square! Perfect!

Lugar excelente para um casal ou amigos! Com certeza voltaria. Limpeza ótima e quarto grande! Muito bom!


You can't use a Wifi in your room. And so slow...


O custo benefício é perfeito! No coração de Praga! Fiz tudo a pé..infelismente a limpeza fica a desejar..


This hostel has an excellent value for the money. Perfect localization, clean bathrooms and rooms. The only thing that I would complain is that me and my girlfriend we booked a double bed and we got twin beds - the hostel doesn't offers double bed with shared bathrooms. The breakfast it's reeeeally good, worth to buy it!


Muy buen hostel! Cada sector super espaciado .. que en un hostel no es normal. Las habitaciones son con lockers y super espacio entre cada cama. Tiene cocina y donde comer .. ya sea en la misma cocina o en un comedor. El desayuno al principio lo ves caro pero lueho si desayunas por ahí comes nada y sale mas caro .. asi qhe mejor desayunar ahí.


Hostel is very close to the Karl's bridge, perfect location, we had double room, it was large and clean, shared bathroom is good and clean. Guest may use the kitchen. Internet is only available close to the reception desk and in common areas, but since our room was the closest one to the reception, we had signal in our room. Excellent value for money, cheap and better than we've expected. I would definitely stay here again or recommend it to my friends.
