Friendly staff, and social atmosphere but otherwise a pretty basic hostel. There wasn't proper air conditioning so it was very hot and hard to sleep, and you had to pay more for a sheet, which was a bit odd.

Brand new hostel. Still finding it's feet (few things missing and construction still happening in a few places) It's about a 20min walk to Old Town. Pretty good though, clean, safe, comfy bed. Layout of the dorms was quite open/noisy.

View Property Reply

Thanks for the review! Sorry to hear that you didn't have an amazing time with us. We've made heaps of changes since we first opened, so you shouldn't find anything missing anymore! We've also changed the layout of our dorms, with less beds in each room and wooden panels on the beds to give an extra level of privacy to each bunk bed. If you come through Prague again, come and see! Safe travels

Great hostel. Quite party-ish. No washing facilities. Free breakfast and dinner was amazing and the pub crawl was fun.

View Property Reply

Thank you for your review. We defiitely are not a party hostel- if our guests want to party they can join our pub crawl at one of our party hostels. We do have some free driks after the dinner but after 11 pm we close the common room so that other travellers who want to explore the city in the morning and want to have a lot of energy to do that, can sleep. By saying washing facilities I guess you mean a washing machine bceause obviously we have bathrooms and showers. We do not have one but there is a place 10 minutes away from the hostel where you can do your laundry, drink some coffee and use the WiFi at the same time for only a few PLN.

I'm not sure why this hostel gets well rated. The staff weren't present, and then seemed kind off annoyed by my presence. There's no common area/lounge. Seems to be mid construction. Disappointing.

Good hostel - A bit of a hike to downtown, but the location by the river is quite beautiful, and the path along it is lovely. There wasn't any plugs or lights by the beds - serious lack of plugs in the room. Bathroom got really dirty in the mornings. Otherwise great.

View Property Reply

Hello! Yes, it is true that many of Austin's hot spots are about a 30 minute walk, or a 15 minute bike ride. However, the hostel is great for outdoor enthusiasts and our neighborhood is developing quick! We do offer bike rentals on site as well as generously discounted metro passes. Also, in other news, we're officially approved for a complete rewiring of the electrical in all the dorms rooms and will be installing charging stations with lighting at each bed in 2017. Come back and visit us again and thank you for your review!
