Overall good place to get some rest. The internet works well, but the kitchen is minimalist, i.e. no stove. This is a large hostel/hotel chain and often hosts large groups, including school-age groups. It is not a party hostel, so don't come here to drink and go wild.

The on;y problem is that the Wi-Fi is not reliable. At certain times it is impossible to connect to or use the internet. It can take 1-1/2 hours to send one email. Wombats needs to upgrade the Wi-Fi because there are many guests trying to connect. In 2015, internet should work.

The best place to stay in Prague. The location is Holesovice is within walking of the train station, and only few stops by tram from Wenceslaus Square. The historical building is completely modern and the dorm rooms are spacious with single beds in many rooms. Excellent breakfast for 120 Kc.

Hello Gerard, thank you for your review. In our hostel there’s enough space for people who wants party and then during the day need to chill out a bit. We have sofas in a pub or terrace where you can e.g. read a books from our library. Also you can always join us during our daily events where we are chilling and having fun at the lake, river or just making picnic all together. It’s summer time ;)

This is a nice quiet place to stay in Prague. There is a nice club in the basement with brick walls, they have breakfast and also make dinner, there is a good kitchen, and no bunk beds so the rooms are not overcrowded.

This is a luxury hostel. Many backpackers, who are often just a bunch of drunken louts, do not deserve such luxurious accommodations and should find a pig stye more suitable to their station. Myself, with more refined sensibilities, could live here 365 days per year.

I recommend staying here but several improvements are needed: 1. There are no lockers in the rooms. Lockers are needed 2. The bunk beds are too low and too noisy. Need better quality bunk beds 3. There is not enough common area. The only common area is in the courtyard outside, but in inclement weather it is not usable and there is no where else to hang out and meet other travelers. They need to have an indoor common area.

Not really a hostel. No activities or information or anything like a hostel. Did not meet any fellow travelers. More like a rooming house. Kitchen had nothing to cook with. No dishes, bowls, cups, or anything. Just one broken pan. Useless. They charge $5.99 per day for internet. Every other place has free WIFI. They charge like 10% extra tax on top of everything. I can not recommend this place unless you are desperate.
