    Super nice hostel! Incredible staff, they were so friendly and Katie even went the extra mile to set up a group chat for all the solo travellers checking in so you could find people to hang out with even when it’s quiet due to Covid. Good location to walk to the Jewish quarter, short tram ride to the old town/castle but I walked it and it wasn’t more than 40mins. Very clean etc. All round good vibes. Free walking tours with Suzie are also really good.

    Clean rooms and facilities. Beds were a tad uncomfortable as you could feel the springs of the mattress. Location is great! Atmosphere was a little quiet but that’s most likely because of the current covid situation. Staff are friendly and helpful... there are events set which you can join.

    Some staff members are quite helpful, always ready to provide the best customer service. Others are lazy and unwilling to fulfill their obligations. I had to ask a girl many times before she gave me what I needed (washing machine powder, opening the downstairs door, information). I then realised that she had had a very long shift, so I can understand.But she really tryed not to do what I had asked her for. On the contrary to her, another one was prompt to give me everything I asked straight away

    Fabulous

    20 Aug 2020
    I had a blast! The rooms are big so even with 8 beds it never felt crowded. It can be a bit hot in the summers though and there's just 1 men's shower per floor. Otherwise, the common areas are fantastic with a well equipped kitchen, enough dining tables/chairs, comfy sofas, a guitar and a piano. Its a great place to meet people. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Special shout out to Katy: she's really cool and knows a lot about the nightlife of Prague. Def staying here when I'm back!
