Third time I've stayed at this hostel. The staff are wonderful. Always happy for a chat and to help anyway they can. Dorms and facilities are clean. Maybe just need a bit more airflow to the room as it can get quite warm. Located just around the corner from Hyde Park and close to shops and public transport. Thanks for another great stay guys!

Second time I've stayed here. The location is great. The staff were friendlier this time around. Bathrooms clean but there is no privacy. You have to get completely nude in front of everyone. Dorms are spacious but very noisy as are right next to a busy street. Love the free breakfast.

What a great place to stay. Wish we could have stayed longer. Gerhard is very helpful. He picked us up from the train station and took us back when we left. The dinner every night was so delicious. Breakfast provided in the morning and you can make a ham and cheese roll to take out with you for lunch. Even if you aren't on Busabout it's a great place to stop and spend a few days. Gerhard had bikes to hire and we rode to a beautiful lake one day. There is free wifi and laundry facilities.

Hi there, We wish you could have stayed longer too. This seems to be the most common complaint of our guests -- that they had no idea how great Cesky Krumlov is until they got here. Next time, stay longer :) Cheers, Carolyn, Krumlov House

Great hostel! So much locker space in the rooms. Plus each bed has a shelf for you to store phone etc. when you sleep plus there is powerpoints and a reading light. Facilities were clean but there was no where to hang any clothes in the shower. Value for money is great. Breakfast costs 4.90 and it's worth it. Perfect location. Would definitely recommend.

As most people have said, the location is out of town but the s Bahn is 5 minute walk away so it's easy to get into the centre. The staff were great and showed us where good places to visit were on a map. They gave us tips about the public transport also. It's a new hostel so the facilities are great. Very clean and spacious rooms and bathrooms. Free wifi throughout the hostel. Just need to add free breakfast and it would be perfect.

Location was good. All attractions were in walking distance. Weren't many toilets and showers on the floor but they were clean. Staff were good but kept to themselves mostly, weren't too interested in having a conversation. Rooms were spacious and beds comfortable. Wifi all throughout the hostel and free tea which was nice. Breakfast was very overpriced.

Great location about 3 minute walk from train station. Staff were very helpful if we had any questions. Rooms were clean and beds comfortable. Need more powerpoints though. We had 3 powerpoints for 6 people which didn't work very well. Breakfast was good although I felt like I was pushed out the door as soon as it hit 10am even if I hadn't finished eating. Would stay here again.

One of the greatest places I have ever stayed. The staff were great and very friendly. They provided us with lots of information about things to do in the area. The restaurant there serves quality food at good prices. There is also a mini supermarket. Location was slightly out of town but it was stunning. Right outside the window you could gaze at beautiful waterfalls. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Lauterbrunnen. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay and we hope to return one day!

There was free wine every night which was delicious. Clean facilities and spacious rooms. No lockers but you don't feel like you need them at Dany house. Great stay! Would definitely recommend!

It was an ok place to stay for the one night but the person running the hostel was never around so checking in and out was an issue as was asking any questions. Breakfast wasn't included in the price and if you wanted a simple breakfast it was 3 pound. There was also signs everywhere about cheap pizza for dinner but when we asked about it the owner said no we don't do that. It was close to all the sights we wanted to see and the facilities were clean so it was fine for a nights stay.

I am sorry the bar & restuarant was not open but in March the hostel had only 4 persons paying less than £80 in total for their accommodation we cannot afford to pay a receptionist/ bar staff and a chef to cater for 4 persons. There's a supermarket 5 mins walk and 3 bars/restuarants 5 mins. Small independant hostels cannot afford to have 24 hour staff. The breakfast is optional and the next nearest hostel charges £4.50 for the same breakfast.

This hostel has been one of my favourites. There is so many different common areas you can sit in including a cinema room, bar and reading area. It was very spacious. Lots of clean toilets and showers on each floor. The dorms were clean and beds weren't too bad. There were lockers in the room. Staff were helpful. Would definitely recommend.

Facilities were clean and the hostel was in a good location. Bad things were free wifi was only in common areas and toilets were separated on different levels so if I needed the toilet I had to go either downstairs or upstairs. I'll be going back to Manchester later in the year and will probably stay here again.
