    Great great great location! Very central and easy to get to all the sites around Prague. Clean, calm, secure. They lend towels and padlocks for a deposit and give you the money back at the end. There were very few people when I was there due to covid and off-season (beginning of January), so the atmosphere was quiet and calm.

    clean and safe hostel, it was calm and nobody was really socializing even on new years. it’s an old building so the doors slamming in the hallway sound really loud and shake everything so u get woken up when anybody on the floor comes home. our private room was clean, beds weren’t comfortable, but the staff was really nice and helpful and the kitchen was the nicest i’ve seen in a hostel

    The hostel is right in the center and everything is so walkable including the stop for the night bus to the airport. The staff was nice and received the feedback pretty well. There is a spacious common area for everyone. The hostel is also close to a convenience store. The only thing for me is the noise because I stayed on the lower floor so I could hear everything from the street as well as the wall is pretty thin so you can hear it when someone open the door from the outside.
